Bronzed Beauties and Sun Exposure

Summer is right around the corner! You start thinking about slipping on that bathingTan suit 🙂 Everyone wants that Sunkiss Glow. Many people believe that bronzed skin is a youthful and healthy look but there are dangers associated with sun exposure and indoor tanning. UV rays are dangerous and sometimes deadly. A tan equals skin cell damage and that’s no joke.

You may feel pretty but you are doing serious damage to your skin and in the long run, the results may make you feel not so pretty.

#True Facts of Sun Damage:
*Weakens your Skin

*Leathery Appearance

*Dry Skin

*Accelerate Aging Process

*Discolored Skin

*Most Serious one Skin Cancer!!

Sun burn is more serious than the initial discomfort felt – especially for children. In fact, one serious blister or sun burn more than doubles your chance of developing Melanoma later in life. Melanoma results from intense sun burns.
Did you know?

*There are now more cases of skin cancer from indoor tanning facilities than there are from lung cancer cases associated with smoking? Sadly, that is the case.

People who utilize tanning beds before the age of 30 increase their chances of developing melanoma by 75 percent. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, “melanoma will kill an estimated 8,650 people in the US this year alone.” Tanning beds also increase the likelihood of developing squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell press_rotator COOLA SUNCARE BLUE BUNGALOW SPA ROCKAWAY PARK NYcarcinoma by 2.5 and 1.5 percent respectively.
The solution is simple “DO NOT TAN” indoors or outside!
When you are in the sun, protect your skin. Wear hats and clothing that covers your skin. Use a sunscreen with spf of at least an spf 15 and reapply every thirty minutes.  Always, always wear UV blocking sunglasses as sun exposure also causes cataracts. If you are of light skin and hair, you need to exercise even more caution out in the sun because you are more likely to develop skin cancer.

Were you born with sand dollars in your eyes and salt water in your hair? Do you look in the mirror and wonder if your golden days as Sun Goddess were really worth it? At the Blue Bungalow Spa, Patricia Rorke really understands. As a woman celebrating life over 50, Pat has spent most of her life living on the beach, Pat knew she needed to develop a skin care regime specifically geared towards the treatment of sun damaged skin for women just like you.

Pat spent years developing THE SKIN FITNESS PROGRAM. She tested products with all of the right ingredients until she found a combination of research based, non-invasive products that had proven results. That was just the beginning. Along with a system of superior products, Pat introduced two machines that are key components to THE SKIN FITNESS PROGRAM. The Microcurrent machine and the IntraceuticalsOxygen machine provide fast, proven, long-term results. Expanding on an already amazing non-invasive treatment program, Pat went deeper! Her program is two-fold, healing skin from the outside in and from the inside out, targeting all layers of skin! THE SKIN FITNESS PROGRAM involves holistic-minded therapy as it examines the source of skin irregularities. Pat individualizes each client’s treatment based on their lifestyle, the environment, and internal health.

THE SKIN FITNESS PROGRAM results in beautiful, more radiant looking skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are drastically minimized, skin tone is improved and irregularities in pigmentation are corrected. Pat states “I am loving what I do and I smile during the treatments on my clients when I see the changes I make for their skin. Some clients are well into their 60s and their skin looks 10 years younger.” To find out more, call Pat or visit the Blue Bungalow Spa. Rejuvenate your skin with THE SKIN FITNESS PROGRAM.
