The time has come again for school to begin.  Along with the frenzy of fresh school supplies and finding classes is making sure that you are doing all you can to give your skin that fresh start it needs.


Healthy skin begins with proper cleansing.  Far too many people encounter breakouts and other issues because of not using the right products.  If your skin is normal to oily choose an exfoliating cleanser like Age Defense Cleanser.  If you skin type leans more towards the dry side, opt for a hydrating cleanser like Theraplex.


Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean you get to skip your sunscreen.  Apply your SPF 30 or higher every morning first thing after washing your face.  Elta MD comes in a variety of sunscreens that are formulated with transparent zinc oxide are non comedegenic, sensitivity free, fragrance free and parabin free.


As with general health, it is always important to hydrate.  This allows the skin to release its toxins through sweat, which helps to release debris within the pores.  This also helps with keeping the skin supple and smooth and avoids dry patches.
