Proof Sunscreen Can Help You Fight Off Sun Damage

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBeauty Buzz

This is a perfect example of what can happen to YOU if you don't wear sunscreen!

The 69-year-old man (above) suffers from dermatoheliosis or photodamaged skin, but only on one side of his face.

Why? It turns out he was a delivery driver for 28 years and only caught rays on the left side of his face through his truck's window.

According to medical experts, the "Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays transmit through window glass, penetrating the epidermis and upper layers of dermis".

With that said: Wearing sunscreen can protect you from all those evil UVA and UVB rays that can cause your skin to thicken, lose it's elasticity, and age quicker!

So next time you're in the sun, make sure you put on sunblock! We wouldn't want you to flaw!

1 In 5 Americans Pee In The Pool!!!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSwimming

peeing-in-pool-is-cool.jpg

A recent survey by the Water Quality and Health Council found that literally 20% of Americans have confessed to using a pool as a toilet!

YUCK!

For #1 only as far as the study is concerned.

Another surprisingly gross statistic is that 70% of people jumped right in without showering beforehand.

We didn't know anyone showered before going in a pool.

Apparently sweat, cosmetics, sunscreen, perfume, hair stuff, etc. can mix with chlorine to create irritants that cause skin rashes and red eyes.

So it's not the chlorine itself that does that! It's the gross people you're swimming with!

So shower before and after swimming, make sure kids have water-proof diapers and please please PLEASE stop peeing in the pool!!!

Filed under: HealthScience!Cancer

Sunscreen Warnings

Not ALL sunscreens are harmful, but you need to avoid those that have potentially harmful ingredients!

Of course, though, do the benefits of blocking the sun outweigh the ingredients…? Not if there are better solutions!

A staggeringly low 25% of 800 tested sunscreens are effective without using harmful ingredients.

To make the safe list, sunscreens must be free of

How Barbra Streisand Stays Fabulous

Filed under: FitnessDietsFood

Streisand Fit Plan

The woman is almost 70, yet she still looks INcredible!

What's Barbra Streisand's secret?

Not exercising, pancakes, and cheap face cream! What!! We want on THAT diet!!

Sure, she's dabbled in exercising before — yoga here, pilates there, but she almost always quits quickly or just stands around and talks to people during the classes. She got some exercise equipment once, but threw it out "in favor of aesthetics."

She's tried fad diets — low carb, high protein. Jenny Craig. But her attempts were always thwarted by pancakes. Mmm, pancakes!

Also, she forgoes make up when she can, in favor of creams that have sunscreen to block harmful rays. In fact, he favorite face cream for the night time only costs 7 pounds!

A lot of people swear by all of those diets and all that exercise stuff, but we say just continue to do what works for you!! Obviously it hasn't been detrimental, you look so good!!

Coco Quick Tip Of The Day

coco-quick-tip-of-the-day__opt1.jpg

A secret tip I learned from Mama Mai:

In photo shoots, rather than moisturizer or body balm, use any SPF or sunscreen to lather up your skin. The protecting emollients act as a reflector to flash and result in a drop-dead JLo glow.

Filed under: HealthSkin

Wise words! Listen to your momma, girls.

When she and her daughters go out in the sun, Christie Brinkley warns her girls Alexa and Sailor to always wear sunscreen when going outside.

Growing up surfing, Christie says that spending hours in the sun took a toll on her skin. She says:

"I grew up a surfer girl in Malibu so I'm always running after my girls with sunblock going, 'Believe me, you'll thank me for this.' I can literally see on my own thighs where my sarong shielded me from the sun. 'Look right here' - smooth, no spots here. But spots here (further down her thigh)."

It's super, super important to cover up in the sun. Skin cancer is no laughing joke. As a supermodel, Christie Brinkley KNOWS how to protect her skin - wear a hat and use sunscreen!
