For the last few decades, scientists have been preaching to us to wear sunscreen to look younger.
New studies show: they were wrong! And we were stunned. Here’s what we learned about the latest evidence regarding sun damage.
An SPF isn’t enough to protect you from sun damage. Yes, they block UVA and UVB rays, but those rays only account for 7% of solar energy.
Now for the really interesting part:
New research finds that infrared radiation, which makes up 54% of solar energy, also causes aging AND may be worse than UV rays!
It seems that infrared radiation penetrates deeper than UV rays, producing those nasty free radicals that not only age you but also wreck your skin.
So do you give up sunscreen? No way! We’ve always told you how important an antioxidant serum is to your overall skin care.
Now science is backing us up. In fact, wearing an antioxidant serum that has a combination of vitamins C, E, and ferulic acid, a naturally occurring antioxidant and sunscreen, is more important than sunscreen!
This antioxidant cocktail provides the missing link in preventing free radicals from robbing your skin of health and youth.
Wear the antioxidant serum under your sunscreen. Just make sure your sunscreen contains zinc and titanium dioxide, not Avobenzone and Octinoxate, which promote wrinkles!

Don’t Look Now But 35 Could Be the New 50!
Did your eyes do a double take? Ours sure did! And yes, it is a whole lot scary. Here’s the scoop. New evidence shows that the younger generation is aging more quickly than previous generations.
Bizarre, isn’t it? But wait until you find out why.
An April 2013 paper from the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology made this stunning discovery. Metabolic health, or, how well your body uses insulin to process sugar in the blood, is not working as well as in previous generations.
The reason? Our high intake of empty carbs and fast foods, which causes high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and even type-2 diabetes. But it also ages you by 15 years!
In fact, today’s 45 year-olds are on par with the aging process of 60 year olds! Twenty and 30 year old age ranges are also aging at the same 15-year rate.
As scary as it is, there is good news. You don’t have to be a victim of Metabolic Syndrome. You can take control of your health.
• Get regular physical exercise-Walk regularly or go to the gym
• Eat smart-Skip the junk food and empty carbs
• Skip the soda-There is absolutely nothing good about a soda
• Relax and renew-Get regular facials or a massage
If this study reinforces anything at all, it’s this: Take care of yourself! No if’s, and’s, or but’s.
From diet and exercise to regular rejuvenation, self-care keeps your body and your mind aging backwards, instead of forward.
And that’s our mission, too!
