Say Good-bye to the Dog Days of Summer

The dog days of summer are upon us, bringing the last days of Nashville's hottest summer sun, heat and humidity to Middle Tennessee. As Labor Day Weekend approaches, make a commitment to make sure your family ends their summer skin care on a strong note.

Protect Your Skin on Labor Day

If your Labor Day plans involve any time outdoors by the pool, on the lake, or basking elsewhere in the September sun, be sure to protect your skin. Find a shady spot, wear protective clothing, drink plenty of water, and wear a good sunscreen. The longer you plan to be in the sun, the higher the SPF number of your sunscreen should be.

Find a Great Daily Sunscreen

For a great daily sunscreen, look for one that does more than block UV rays. Now there are high-quality sunscreens that not only protect the skin from the sun, but actually help heal sun damage with peptides, moisturizers, collagen boosters, amino acids and other anti-aging ingredients.

Teach Your Kids Early to Protect Their Skin

Melanoma is on the rise and your children need to be taught about sunscreens at an early age. If they are old enough to wash their face and brush their teeth, they are old enough to be taught to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to prevent burning, premature aging, and most forms of skin cancer.


For the very best in an all-in-one sunscreen, moisturizer and collagen booster, I recommend ANTI-AGE Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30 peptide treatment. It does it all by protecting the skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen while it helps heal sun damage with peptides, moisturizers, collagen boosters, amino acids and other anti-aging ingredients. Great for healing the damage on older skin as well as for maintaining younger skin.
