     Give your skin a drink of water: H2O~water~ the source of life, makes up 70% of the dermis layer of the skin. Hydration is the first preventative and essential step to maintaining the natural health of the skin. G.M.Collin Hydramucine Optimal Gel and Cream both offer a new technology to increase the level of hydration in the skin. Active ingredients like pomegranate, bamboo, water lily and lotus increase the capacity of the cells to retain water. An excellent way to maintain hydration after a G.M.Collin Clinical Facial.   

     This moisturizer is even great for clients who use the Gel formula. Restoring the moisture in the skin, this will leave your face feeling silky smooth.

Great Balls Of FIRE!!!
     As much as we all love the sun ~ beware! If you play with fire, you're bound to get burnt! Yes the sun has some "nutritional" + psychological value to us in the form of vitamin D and making us feel happy and positive.  However we need to approach it with caution and plenty of sun protection!Prevention is always better than a cure, especially when it comes to sun exposure. Skin cancer and blistering aside ~ sun damage is the #1 cause of premature aging, wrinkles and unsightly discoloured skin. These effects sometimes unfortunately don't rear their ugly head until 10-20 years down the road so here is a basic rundown of things to be aware of to prevent severe damage:
1. As obvious as it sounds, put on enough sunscreen and reapply frequently. If your in and out of the water or vigorously exercising then every 2-3 hours, otherwise at least every 3-4 hours. Remember according to the AAD (American Academy of Dermatology) not using enough sunscreen and not reapplying it is almost as bad as not wearing it at all, as when the product starts to break down in the environment it creates more free radicals.
2.Use a broad spectrum sun product, ideally with a physical screen~ titanium & zinc oxide, as these will cause little or no irritation to the skin or eyes.Check  out our extensive collection of Suncare products that contain the physical screens that are recommended by AAD, including the latest product, Tinted Mineral
SPF 15, that contains Smart Colour Technology .
3.Choose your diet wisely including supplements and increase your consumption of lycopene (high in tomatoes) and green tea...Check our delicious flavoured Green Tea Extract article above...
 4. Take extra precautions around water, snow and sand as they reflect the damaging rays of the sun a lot more and can increase the chances of burning.
5.Avoid the tanning beds at all costs. We call them "glass coffins" as the UV radiation can damage the skin cells and remember these beds provide a false sense of protection - at least the sun provides vitamin D!
