You are in control for your own health and you are responsible for your own skin condition.

Flight surgeon explanation

When does botox have the most effective results to begin or consider??

Dermatologists want to make you COMFORTABLE in your own skin…

Skin Change is Real! Skin vs. El Camino “leather-ish” dash board material…

1. Dont smoke
2. Stay out of sun/excessive
3. Hydrate internally
4. hydrate externally

Never go to the tanning bed-spray tans are perfectly fine🙂

Ultraviolet light degrades the skin

SPF= Sun Protection Factor recommendation is 30 SPF with adequate application-application makes ALL the difference! Rule of thumb: Average size amount is an ounce (shot glass full)

ABCDE of skin spots:

Differences between sunscreen and sunblock…

Block= Zinc or titanium, thicker, pasty
Screen=  oxybenzo, avobenzone

Recommended whatever you will wear, b/c anything is better than nothing, when it comes to applying sunscreen/sunblock.
