Sun protection needs more than sunscreen

protect and nourish summer skinI love hats. I love the way they add interest to a simple outfit or add polish to a fashion statement, not to mention rescuing a bad hair day! In summer hats have an even more important role in my wardrobe. As a skin care specialist with over 45 years of helping women have flawless skin, I can attest to the value of wearing a wide brimmed hat for sun protection in addition to sunscreen. Squinting makes wrinkles!

While most of us know to protect our skin when we go outside, it shouldn’t stop there. The sun’s UV radiation alters the actual DNA of your skin cells, causing lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and even cancer. Antioxidants help protect the skin’s DNA to protect the collagen and elastic tissue from free radicals that cause wrinkles and sagging skin. Diet can help. Include some of the antioxidant-rich foods in season like fresh fruits and vegetables for instance melon and berries, kale and carrots.

Add antioxidants that skin can absorb directly like the Vitamin A in my carrot cream. I developed this product to boost skin’s ability to repair itself. We make it in small batches with natural ingredients, which is why my customers choose it over department store brands as a part of their daily regime. Rodica Carrot Cream not only protects and nourishes skin but delivers a healthy glow even without makeup.
