Sun Protection Can Be Easy 

They say it takes 7 days to break a bad habit and anywhere from 18 – 66 days on average create a new habit.  One of the best habits that I’ve ever gotten into was wearing hats!  With a bald chrome dome – I got into the habit of wearing a hat daily to protect the top of my head, forehead and nose from direct sun exposure.  If I’m wearing a ball cap, I load up SPF on my years to ensure they’re protected.  

Another habit that I got into every day is applying an SPF in the am.  It’s just makes good sense.  We know that daily spf is vital.  If you want a good breakdown on what SPF level you need and what each level (ie… a 15, 30, 50 etc) can do for your skin in terms of protection check out 4 Tips To Preventing Skin Cancer, in this article there are statistics from skincander.org that will help you can use with your spa clients.

Shields - Bluestone Shields

These chic shields make great sun protection and come in a variety of styles!

Bluestone Sunshields was founded by Licensed Esthetician and Global Operations Expert, Jen Podany, while working next to top dermatologists in Los Angeles, CA.

Seeing patients come in daily, spending time and money on cosmetic treatments only to see them walk out the door trying to avoid the sun (and many times paparazzi!).
