One person dies of melanoma every 62 minutes according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Additionally, a person’s risk of melanoma doubles if they have had more than five sunburns at any age. Over the last 31 years, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. July marks UV Safety Month and while skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, it is also one of the most preventable.
While the upcoming months consist of care-free vacationing and endless tanning, the damaging effects of the sun last well beyond summer. The truth is, the damaging effects of unprotected tanning, or more appropriately termed “baking”, can be scary! Of course, sun-kissed skin looks great, at least on the surface, but for how long? The list of the harmful effects of unprotected sun exposure goes on and on. Burns, blisters, scars, wrinkles, “leathery” skin, and even cancer are just a few of the consequences that can be experienced immediately or many years later in life. Photo-aging occurs over the years and if there is constant unprotected sun exposure, the skin can actually lose its ability to repair itself and the damage simply amplifies and worsens.
So while it is great to enjoy the sun and get a picture perfect tan it is even more important to be protected so you can actually enjoy the sun with no negative consequences. You all know I live in Florida and I am very conscious of sun protection and that it is an all year around deal not everybody pays the proper attention to.
This summer I want to bring you a great sun protection product line from one of my favorite skin care brands: Pevonia Botanica. In this opportunity I bring you four different products that are meant to nourish, hydrate and protect your skin this summer. …The first thing I need to say about all four of them is that they have a light Camellia scent that smells AMAZING! Hydrating Sunscreen.
This sun screen features a light weight cream that is quickly absorbed and it leaves no oily feeling and unlike most sun screens does not leave a white color film on your skin so you can’t even tell you are wearing anything. The skin feels really smooth and nice after applying the sun screen, so you are not only protecting against the sun’s harmful UVA & UVB rays, you are also providing hydration at the same time. The Hydrating Sunscreen is enriched with Vitamins E, C, and B, and has a 30 SPF and has a retail price of 42.00.
After-Sun Soothing Gel. This clear gel feels very refreshing on the skin and has the same great scent as the Hydrating Sun Screen. The After Sun Soothing Gel feels great on your skin after being exposed to the sun. The gel is also quickly absorbed and does not have that sticky feeling that you usually get with gel products. The skin feels really soft after using the After-Sun Soothing Gel .The Gel features a compound of Proline and Water Lily extract, combined to soothe, desensitize, and gently alleviate your sun-sensitive skin. It is great to calm the skin after any activity that has to do with sun exposure. After-Sun Soothing Gel has a retail price of 34.50.
Phyto-Aromatic Mist is an aromatic mist that is replenishing, refreshes, cools and helps over exposed skin with a soothing blend of Chamomile, Calendula, and French rose to create a refreshing aromatic and soothing sensation that is very welcome after a hot day at the pool or beach. As with the other two products from the line, the skin feels amazing after I apply the Phyto-Aromatic Mist. The mist works to balance and bring back your skin’s natural moisture and according to Pevonia can even be used on sunburn skin!
The mist provides you with an immediate wellness sensation. One of my very favorites even though I must I admit I am very impressed with the whole line of sun protection products from Pevonia Botanica. The mist has a retail price of 34.50.
The last product of the line I was able to try was the Self-Tanning Emulsion. As I said, I am very impressed with the whole line and this product is no exception. Pevonia really did a great job with the products. The Self-Tanning Emulsion has the same amazing scent as the rest of the line, and provides you with a natural golden tan without the damaging effects of the sun.
A little amount goes a long ways and better yet, does not give that orange color that other self-tanning products often give the skin. The Pevonia Self-Tanning Emulsion combines natural color (Caramel), with DHA (Sugar Cane), Squalane, and Vitamins B and E, to ensure a smooth, streak-free, flawless tan that will look great all year around. The Self- Tanning emulsion has a retail price of 40.00
