What are the benefits of zinc oxide vs. chemical suncreams?

The finest, mineral based, sunscreen....

  • Cosmetically Elegant
  • Free of: chemical sunscreens, preservatives, oils, fragrances, or PABA
  • SPF 40
  • Contains #1 (Zinc Oxide) and #2 (Titanium Dioxide) rated sunscreen filters
  • Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB
  • Photostable, will not break down in sunlight
  • Water Resistant (80 minutes)

While zinc oxide creates a protective barrier and deflects UV rays off of your skin (both UVA and UVB), chemical SPF absorbs them before they can cause any harm. Chemical formulas can cause some irritation if you have sensitive skin, but they are virtually invisible. Physical SPFs have a reputation for being chalky, but it’s worth trying out the newer formulas as they’re much lighter.

What are the differences between freckles and moles?

Freckles and moles are areas of increased pigment (melanin) in the skin, but they're not the same thing. Melanin is a natural substance that gives colour to hair, skin, and the iris of the eye, and it serves to protect the skin against UV radiation. Freckles are caused by increased pigmentation in the top layer of the skin (epidermis). Freckles are small and flat, and usually develop in childhood as a result of exposure to the sun, and are more frequently found on people with light skin and fair hair. It’s rare for freckles to develop into skin cancer. However, because freckles are especially common in people who have light skin (having light skin that burns easily increases the risk of skin cancer), sun protection is particularly crucial. Moles can be present at birth and are made up of groups of pigmented cells. Moles vary in size, can appear as flat or raised and are usually dark brown in colour. 
They often become more prominent with age. Moles may also darken with repeated sun exposure or as a result of hormonal changes during pregnancy. Moles rarely become cancerous - although it’s more common for moles than freckles to become malignant. If you spot any changes (size, shape, colour, sensation), consult your doctor.

Breaking Down Cosmetic Procedures for Your 
This summer, I had Botox and fillers done so subtly that my daughter noticed from a mile away. Fine, it wasn’t an actual mile, but it was about the length of a baseball field. I know this for certain because she was at camp on a baseball field and ran up to me, the entire length of the field, saying, “What happened to your face?”
