Healthy Skin Is In

Guess what?! 
It's Summer and more than ever you need this product 
I call awesome sauce below...

Extrashade has to be one of my 
favorite sunscreens of all time. 

Speaking first hand about it, I just want to tell you that I have sensitive skin and this bad boy never stings my face. It also dries clear and leaves the skin looking so moisturized that it actually gleams, almost as if you just applied an oil. The formulation has tons of good-for-you ingredients that can be found by clicking here.

While Extrashade does cater to rich complexions, it's perfectly fine to use if you're a Casper the Ghost as well. Tired of looking chalky after applying sunscreen to his complexion, Extrashade's owner Anthony went on a mission to create a product that suits every single complexion known to man. Cancer, as you all know, does not discriminate and several misconceptions still exist in the beauty world.

Furthermore, a common complaint that I'm constantly hearing about at beauty counters is women trying to fix their hyperpigmentation. While I do my best to address their concerns, the plain and simple fact of the matter is that they could avoid buying all these costly products if they just wore sunscreen in the first place.

There's also uproar with a common skin lightener hydroquinone that you should research here, here and here. My point is that doctors are still prescribing even the more potent doses (4%) and they could be contributing to cancer. Walk down any skin care beauty aisle and you can find 2% readily available for purchase. The entire situation amazes me with non-amazement. Europe banned it long ago, by the way. If you actually have hyperpigmentation, check out kojic acid, licorice extract or Vitamin C instead. Kojic acid can be found in the Pur Minerals Get Bright Serum as well as the Mario Badescu Whitening Mask. Vitamin C can be found in this sunscreen as well. It's okay. You can thank me later for my rant, once you've seen your spots lighten without causing you chemotherapy. Holler. Anyway, my point is avoidance and sunscreen is key to maintaining a completely envious complexion.

Quotes Anthony himself:

" Everyone should wear sunscreen especially people with darker skin tones because of the inherited uniqueness of melanin that give naturally tan and radiant skin. The very thing that makes darker skin tones unique – melanin, is the primary challenge of maintaining non-hyperpigmented skin cause by UV exposure. Sunscreen is the simplest and the most cost effective way to maintain healthy and great looking skin. To keep your skin looking great, use your broad spectrum sunscreen daily.

Daily Defense Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF30, supported by hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid and powerful antioxidant of pomegranate, moisturizes and softens as it forms a protective layer over your skin. Thanks to that layer and its high vitamin C content, improves your skin’s texture as it provides broad spectrum protection and repairs discoloration."

There you have it, friends! Enjoy the sun, but enjoy it in some sunscreen. Healthy skin is smart, stylish, fashionable and most importantly beautiful.
