The FYI on SPF at CVS

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

What’s the safest way to enjoy the summer sun for you– and your skin? Most of us these days are well-aware that regularly applying skincare products containing an SPF of at least 30 can offer greater protection from the sun’s harmful rays. These products also help to prevent the fine wrinkles and spots associated with sun damage, helping to make the skin look younger.

Now, CVS is also taking SPF seriously. In a recent press release, the company has indicated its stores will soon no longer carry any suncare products with SPFs less than 15, replacing them with SPF 30 products. Find out what prompted this change and how it may affect your product choices.

Prep the Perfect Kiss for Valentine’s Day

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Welcome to a special Valentine’s Day Weekly Dose of Beauty, brought to you by our Esthetician and Skincare Manager, Jen Derry:

“Pucker up this Valentine’s Day with these tips to keep your lips soft and hydrated:

  • Make a homemade lip scrub. Apply three drops of olive oil to brown or white sugar and massage into lips to exfoliate-away dead skin build-up. Add a drop of vanilla for an extra treat.
  • Dry brush your lips with a toothbrush to help cell turnover.
  • Always wear a lip SPF. Even in winter, they need to be protected.
  • Don’t forget to moisturize your pout daily.  I’m in love with Baby Lips by Maybelline, Elta UV Lip Balm, and Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm. When all else fails, you can always just grab a little Vaseline out of the medicine cabinet to help heal and protect dry chapped lips.”

Happy Valentine’s Day!
