Carmex Daily Care™ Moisturizing Lip Balms
Whether it’s a tinted moisturizer, face lotion, or lip balm, ensuring your skin is protected from the sun’s harsh rays is vital year-round, not just during lazy summer days spent on the beach. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, even on cloudy days, up to 80% of the sun’s UV rays can damage your skin1. Moreover, UV rays reflect off of water, snow and sand, making it easier to burn, so it’s important to protect your skin, including your lips, from sun damage throughout all seasons with products containing SPF like Carmex Daily Care™ Moisturizing Lip Balms.
Carmex Daily Care™ Moisturizing Lip Balms provide SPF 15 sun protection. Additionally, these lip balms are waterproof up to 80 minutes and are travel-friendly, making them an ideal companion for outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing and swimming. This lip balm is formulated withpetrolatum to aid moisturization and create a long-lasting water resistant barrier, beeswax for long-lasting wear and cocoa seed butter for moisturization to help your lips stay soft and supple.
Since the lips are so vulnerable, it’s important to take the proper precautions to protect them. NYC Dermatologist, Neil Sadick, M.D.** believes that, “Just like the rest of your body, your lips need protection from the sun in order to maintain their overall health and appearance. Remembering to use a lip balm that contains SPF year-round will help lips stay younger looking and also help prevent against sunburn.” To guarantee your lips stay healthy and protected 365 days out of the year, here are 3 tips to keep in mind, courtesy of Carmex® and Dr. Sadick:
- “The skin on the lips does not produce melanin, which means it has no natural protection from the sun and since UV rays are equally damaging in the winter as they are in the summer, it is important to lubricate lips with a moisturizing lip balm that has a SPF in it, likeCarmex Daily Care™ Moisturizing Lip Balmsevery day,” says Dr. Sadick. “Ingredients such asbeeswax, shea butter, Vitamin E andalmond, jojoba or coconut oils will help moisturize the delicate skin on your lips.”
- “Maintain a good water intake everyday to ensure hydration from the inside out.” advises Dr. Sadick, “In both the winter and the summer there is increased transepidermal water loss, and since the lips are constantly exposed to the elements, they are more susceptible to dryness through this process. Drinking lots of fluids helps replenish the extra water lost through the epidermis.”
- “The skin on the lips is unique; it has no sebaceous glands, which means that it cannot make its own oils to keep it moisturized. Refrain from licking your lips, as the enzymes in the saliva dry them out even more. If you feel the need to lick your lips, then you should apply a lip balm likeCarmex®,” states Dr. Sadick. “If your lips are severely cracked, try exfoliating once a month with a fruit-acid-based alpha or beta hydroxy acid product. This will allow the removal of dead cells, allow better penetration of the lip balm ingredients, like SPF and stimulate cell remodeling.”
The seasons may change, but your lip care routine should remain consistent. So, before you head out on the slopes or take to the water for activities, swipe on Carmex Daily Care™ Moisturizing Lip Balms for moisturization and sun protection. Carmex Daily Care™ Moisturizing Lip Balms may be found at retailers nationwide for $1.59 and is available in Orange Dream, Tropical Colada, Winter Mint and Honeydew Melon flavors.

Sunscreens from Osmosis Pür Medical Skincare
Living in Las Vegas has brought a new element to my skincare routine I didn’t have to think about while living in New York! SPF and Sunscreen is definitely a must everyday here. I can only count on 1 hand how many overcast, rainy days there has been here for the last 9 months.
Living in this soleil paradise means that your skin becomes way more susceptible to sun damage, sun spots, sun burns and maybe skin cancer too. I have discovered the range of OSMOSIS that have a variety of SPF products. I love the lightness of the products and how they are good for my skin too! Take a look at their range and see if there is something that can be right for you.
Each year, there are more new cases of skin cancer1 than the combined incidence of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers.2 This means 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime3 with 90% resulting from over exposure to the sun. Applying sunscreen is one of the most important steps of a basic skincare routine and it is often the one part many of us forget.

Broad Spectrum SPF 36 BB Cream by @AmarteSkinCare
I am always on the hunt for new beauty products and it is no different with skincare. I started wearing less makeup and more bare face! Gulp. It is not easy to do it all the time but with the help of Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream, I am getting use to this look more and more.
I recently tried Amarte from Seoul and I am really happy with the products! Amarte Cosmetics comes in pretty pink and gold packaging and has products that are combine Korean skincare secrets and American dermatology expertise. The BB cream has SPF36 and a soft tint that evens out your skin tone. This is a perfect match for my skin tone which is hard to find except in Asian products.
The coverage is more than a tinted moisturized but less than a foundation, which is typical of a BB cream. The smell is pleasant and not overpowering but is a bit powdery and slightly floral. It is very sheer and provides sun protection
I love this beautiful video they shot about the brand. It is beautiful, high end and perfect for the brand. The future can just be as extraordinary as the present.

Our skin go through so much drama and the water we drink does not help hydrate our skin. You have to moisturize! Here are my recommendations:

Alcohol and fragrance-free lotion. With seven plant extracts and 100% natural ingredients, purifies detoxifies, and soothes the skin. Evens the complexion for a smooth and matte finish. Helps maximize skin care benefits.
The thing I love the most about this is the atomizer (spray!) and the fact that it’s fast and great for wearing under makeup and when you are on the go. G.M. Collin was founded in France in 1957 by a dermatologist. Since 1990’s they have been in Montreal.

Two is better than one. This unique moisturizer combines an oil-free formula with a proven acne-fighting ingredient. It works to moisturize dry patches and flakiness while treating and helping to prevent breakouts. It won’t clog pores and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
I have used this product since high school days and it has kept my skin happy. This is an easy buy at the drug store and has always worked the best for me. Besides the occasional hormonal induced blemish, I’m pretty much always ‘clear’.
Garnier Skin Naturals Fresh Day Cream
This is my staple moisturizer for the summer. Smells fresh and is one of my favorites! I really love this entire line really.
