AP9 YourSavingsClub Offers Tips for Proper Sun Care

AP9 YourSavingsClub Offers Tips for Proper Sun Care

AP9 Your Savings Club provides members significant savings on sun care needs and entertainment for days under the sun.

Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) May 16, 2007

Behold pale-looking skin! Summer is coming, and people are ready to go from colorless to colorful, with a tan to show off from head to toe. Members of AP9 YourSavingsClub (http://www. yoursavingsclub-program. com/), a leading discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, can use their membership to get discounts on all the things they need to enjoy the sun while protecting their skin.

The worst consequences of excess sunbathing (skin cancer, coarse skin and more) tend to build up over time and show up years down the road, when there's little or nothing a person can do. That's why AP9 Your Savings Club (http://www. yoursavingsclub-program. com/YourSavingsClub_qanda. html) reminds consumers about the importance of taking safety measures before, during and after any kind of exposure to the sun --but especially during summer.

Before
Eat right. Good eating habits and maintenance will not only help the skin look good but also prevent skin cancer, sun damage and other skin conditions, notes AP9 YourSavingsClub. Sun lovers must include antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, zinc and selenium in their diet, since these nutrients can help the body and skin produce melanin (pigment that's the primary determinant of human's skin color) and fight against the damage produced by free radicals and all UV rays.

Baby Steps. It's wise to "prep" the skin with deep moisturizing lotions and weekly exfoliation to remove dead cells. Start with short exposures to the sun -- 15 minutes, max -- so the skin gets used to the sun all over again.

During
Use sunblock or sunscreen. The skin will react to the sun no matter what, so it's better to play safe and disregard tanning lotions. A healthy color and glow can be achieved using sunblock or sunscreen, which form an invisible barrier in the skin against the sun. Sunblock is usually thicker and doesn't have SPF because it protects against all types of UV rays. Sunscreen, on the other hand, is SPF rated -- the lower the number, the less protection the sunscreen offers, reports AP9 Your Savings Club.

Set limits. The best hours to be under the sun are before 10 am and after 3 pm. For those who are going to be exposed to the sun all day long, sunblock is a must, and it should be reapplied at least every 80 minutes. It's also important to take breaks under the shade and drink lots of water.

After
Moisturize. Nurture the skin with after-sun lotions that contain moisturizers and anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe vera is a key ingredient to look for.

Keep the color. Avoid peeling by maintaining a hydrated the skin. Apply lotions with seaweed or aloe vera, and exfoliate at least every 10 days.

Like a good day under the sun, discounts are always welcomed. And when it comes to looking tanned for less, consumers can enjoy members-only prices every day of the year through AP9 YourSavingsClub.
