Bump Up the Vitamins:
One of the best things you can do for skin is to increase your intake of antioxidants, which helps protect skin from free radicals. Free radicals are found in food, as well as tobacco smoke and polluted air. Free radicals cause skin damage and, over time, contribute to aging by destroying collagen. The less collagen you have, the more wrinkles you get

Protect, protect, protect ……..
The first rays of spring sun make us feel good but when the air temperature is still cool it’s easy to forget that the UV rays given off by the sun are what cause a suntan or sunburn, not the temperature outside. Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. UV rays actually accelerates the effects of aging and increases the risk for developing skin cancer. Remind your clients to wear sunscreen every day and reapply when outdoors so you can keep your skin protected and safe all year long
