Celebrate Summer & Remember your Sun screen!

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Screenshot 2017-05-22 13.02.47After a long winter, hearty Minnesotans are ready to get out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. We wait months for summer to finally get here, so it seems only logical that we want to get outdoors and bask in the beautiful sun. Enjoy the sunshine but be careful of sun over exposure!  Too much exposure to sunlight can seriously damage the skin. Some of this damage is short-term (temporary), such as sunburn. However, allowing your skin to burn can lead to future problems, such as skin cancer due to long-term skin damage.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV radiation can also come from tanning booths or sunlamps. The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is melanoma.

The good news? Skin cancer can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early.

Go out and enjoy the summer sun just don’t do it without sunscreen. Be sure to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, reapply it regularly,  wear polarized sunglasses and a large brim hat to protect your face and neck.

Love Your Lips

Beautiful makeup woman with pink lipstick and long curly hair

Lips are not usually at the forefront of anti-aging efforts but they deserve attention, too. They are often one of the first parts of your face to show aging. It isn’t hard to understand why when we consider the effects of sun damage, smoking and drinking out of a straw. Even if you’ve stayed away from these crease-causing habits, unconsciously pursing your lips can also lead to wrinkles. You may have also noticed loss of lip color, overall lip definition and contour. It is time to love your lips again! 

Now you can help your lips remain soft, rosy and plump with SkinMedica HA5 Lip Plump System. It is a fabulous way to turn back the clock with a simple, 2-product system that enhances natural lip color and volume. Your lips will look firmer, smoother and better defined.

What is in it? The science behind it is pretty cool! You remember the important benefits of water-loving hyaluronic acid? Now they are available to help your lips look supple and more youthful. HA5 Lip Plump System combines the use of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides. Whether you have had your lips enhanced or are just wanting soft, moisturized and plumped lips, the HA5 Lip Plump System is a great addition to your beauty routine. It is a 2 part system: Step 1 is powered by VITISENSCE technology, a proprietary blend of plant stem cells, plant extracts and peptides that supports your skin’s ability to stay hydrated and healthy looking. Step 2′s star ingredient is benzyl nicotinate, a skin conditioner that helps enhance the appearance of lip plumpness and rosiness.

Belladerm is running a special promotion for you to try this out:

PURCHASE A FULL SIZE HA5, RECEIVE 50% OFF THE LIP PLUMP SYSTEM.  (through 6/30/17 – may not be combined with other offers)

What can a full size SkinMedica HA5 do for you?  It delivers both immediate and long term skin benefits, unlike others hyaluronic acid serums that only temporarily moisturize the surface.  HA5 has 5 different forms of HA that work synergistically to provide instant smoothing results and continuous hydration throughout the day. You’ll see the difference for yourself when you experience this new breakthrough. 

So as you can see, together with SkinMedica’s HA5 and the Lip Plump System, you will feel like a new woman and will most certainly be loving your lips (and your skin) again! We want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day and we’ll see you soon!
