Mid-Summer Sun Protection for Your Clients

We are approaching the end of July and we still have plenty of summertime sunshine left! This is a great time to remind your clients about the importance of sun protection and offer some new sunscreen items. The new Sun Therape Moisturizers with SPF 35 by Pharmagel is a perfect sun protection retail item at this point in the summer because they not only protect the skin from UVA and UVB exposure, but they also help repair skin that has been exposed since summer started, as well as provide super absorbent hydration to dry skin they may be experiencing now.

The Sun Therape Moisturizers with SPF 35 are available in 3 types:


The Sun Therape Moisturizers with SPF 35 are formulated with Pharmagel's exclusive Photosome Reconstructive Complex™ to boost effectiveness, it helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sunscreen and antioxidant ingredients provide a daily barrier that pampers skin while guarding from environmental damage. This advanced anti-aging protective body moisturizer is an ideal daily treatment because it is super absorbent and dries quickly to a silky finish.

Even Wolverine Isn't Immune To Sun Damage

I missed the first announcement in November that Hugh Jackman discovered he had skin cancer! He apparently had a mark on his nose that turned out to be basal cell carcinoma; he just announced earlier this month that it has returned. He is now advocating not only getting any new/unusual marks checked out, but that EVERYONE use sunscreen.

Many people I speak with still adhere to the "not me" philosophy when it comes to skin cancer. I hear the "I don't go in the sun enough for it to matter" or "I don't burn so I don't have to worry". Men seem to refuse to wear sunscreen like a child refuses to eat broccoli.. It's astonishing how many guys I talk to that just plain don't wear it and don't seem to care. It's not until someone they know or a celebrity they admire develops it that they take a serious look at their use (or lack thereof) of sunscreens.


For those who aren't sun worshipers, you're not completely in the clear. According to Darrell Smith, executive director of the International Window Film Association (his company provides window films which offer additional protection from the sun's harmful rays), the rays coming in through the window can still cause skin and eye damage. This includes the windows in your home/office and also your car windows. Think of the tan your left arm gets driving on sunny days!

Know your SPF, as they are not all created equal! There is an informative article on the differences in sunscreen here. There are also some great tips from the American Academy of Dermatology on staying sun safe.

Always be sure to wear sunscreen daily, even if you aren't going to be in direct sunlight - it doesn't take a sunburn for the harmful rays to cause damage. Also, be sure to have a line of sunscreen on hand to retail to your clients. You are in the perfect position to advise them on the dangers of sun damage and advocate sunscreen.

Stock up now on some BurnOut 18.6% Zinc Oxide Sunblock / SPF 32 for Sensitive Skin and BURNOUT SPF 32 Lip Balms!

Everyone feels great with a tan, offer your clients a safe way to achieve a healthy natural glow!

Bring Dry, Lifeless Hands Back to Life! - Importance of Skincare for the Hands

One of the most overlooked parts of the body when it comes to skincare is the hands. While we all focus on facial and body skincare, we often neglect the hands. The hands are the one body part that is exposed the most to the sun and harsh climates - almost as much as the face. Skincare of the hands is an important part of the overall health of your skin and you'll want to remember treat them just as you would any other part of the body.

In harsh weather conditions, the skin on the hands can become dry and rough. The winter is starting to slowly disappear and this is a great time to offer hand repair treatments. You can offer them as specials and/or add on services also! It is a good idea to recommend at home night treatments to your clients and offer retail items for that as well. Treatment of the hands should include exfoliation, moisturizing, protection and prevention to maintain healthy skin. Keep in mind that it is super important to exfoliate, as the dead skin cells will prevent any moisture treatments from being more effective.

Exfoliation - Exfoliating is best 2-3 times a week.

Sun Damaged Skin---Prevention Is Key

I just read an article that referenced a study done at the University of Michigan Medical School that shows skin damage starts after just two daily exposures to a low amount of ultraviolet A1, or UVA1, light. These two lights are the ones our skin is exposed to every day and also the same that's in tanning beds.

TWO DAYS!?! It's never been a secret that certain UV rays are bad, obviously tanning beds are not a great choice either but I never realized how quickly the damage can occur. I used to hear people at the gym always proclaim they only went in the tanning bed for 10 minutes every day so they weren't concerned about skin damage...think again!!!

I know I sound like a broken record here but educating your clients is such a crucial aspect to the service you provide. Making them aware of the potential dangers and damages they (and their skin) may come across as well as providing preventative options and solutions are all key points to remember.

Now, sunscreen/sunblock isn't a kryptonite shield against UV lights however they are necessary in the battle for healthy skin.

Here are some great retail products to offer your clients as you educate them:

BurnOut 18.6% Zinc Oxide Sunblock / SPF 32 for Sensitive Skin / 3 oz
Advanced Sun Resistance SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Formula / 8.0 fl. oz. by June Jacobs Spa Collection
Protective Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 / 8.0 fl. oz. by June Jacobs Spa Collection 
Sunblock SPF 30 / 50 mL. by Amber Products
Sunblock SPF 30 / 32 oz. by Amber Products - this can be used as an add on to your facial services!

Don't forget the lips!!!

BURNOUT SPF 32 Lip Balms / 0.15 oz.

Another great way to help your client's avoid UV ray damage and boost your bottom line is to offer sunless tanning! Check out our world renowned line of spray tan solutions and equipment at the Sunless Store! Everything you need in one convenient spot and if you have questions, give us a call!! We love to talk spray tans!!

Keep Your Clients' Skin Protected and Hydrated with June Jacobs!

It's summertime and your clients and their skin are being exposed a lot more to the sun's harsh effects! We all know that SPF is super IMPORTANT when being outside in the sun and obviously this time of year, the exposure is way more often. So, the amazing June Jacobs line has some great products that contain SPF that you can incorporate in your summer spa treatments at the end before they go out into the sun, or you can also retail them to insure that their skin is always protected.


June Jacobs Spa Collection -& With SPF!

Not only is caring for the skin before sun exposure important, after sun care should not be neglected! Especially for days when your clients forget to re-apply their sunscreen and are starting to show signs of irritation and sunburn. A great product from June Jacobs you can offer your clients is the June Jacobs After Sun Hydrator. It is a luxurious lotion that contains the moisturizing benefits of Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil with Iricalmin (which helps regenerate the protective lipid layer of damaged skin). The After Sun Hydrator calms the visible signs of sunburn and irritation, while reducing peeling.

As always, the June Jacobs products are free of Preservatives, Parabens, Synthetic Dyes, Fragrance, Petrochemicals, and Sulfates.

Your clients will keep coming back to you for these great June Jacobs products for all their long summer days!
