"Sure, people like to have a tan because they think they look better,
but it's really just a sign that their skin has suffered damage," Versagli
said. "If someone really feels like they need a tan, we have a great
spray tan in our studio."
Hendrix pointed out that critical areas on which sunscreen needs
to be applied are the sides of the nose, eyelids, and outside, on top
and inside of ears.
"Many people don't think to apply to those areas, but they're all
really high-risk areas for skin cancer," Hendrix said. "In addition,
those are areas that are difficult to treat if skin cancer does occur."
People of color must be equally careful to protect their skin, as
skin cancer occurs among all races. Often, serious skin cancers are
diagnosed later in people of color, making them more dangerous
and difficult to treat.
Ginger McLean, chief operating officer at the Bell Tower Salon
Spa in Wyomissing, said that while skin care is important year-round,
it can become more challenging during the summer when we're
exposed to sun and outdoor exposure.
Because hot weather makes skin prone to premature aging, a
good facial can go a long way during the summer months, McLean
said. Bell Tower offers anti-aging facials that help reduce and repair
concerns due to exposure.
While sun and heat can dry skin, some people, especially younger
clients, find they have trouble with acne during the summer. This
usually occurs when someone sweats a lot, which mixes with pollutants.
For that problem, an anti-acne facial can provide deep cleaning
to help keep skin clear.
Summer care for skin also should include regular exfoliations and
moisturizing, McLean said.
"That is needed to maintain healthy skin all over and will aid in
even, radiant and glowing skin," she said.
Hendrix recommends using a broad-spectrum, water-resistant
sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30 and protects against both
UVA and UVB rays.
While many women use moisturizers that claim to be sun-protectants, most have only 15 SPF, which is not enough to keep you safe.
Reading Dermatology Center for Healthy Skin and Elegance
Derma Spa offers a 30 SPF moisturizer that is not overly expensive
and lasts for a long time.
Hendrix applies a moisturizer with 30 SPF the first thing
every morning.

Maintaining good, overall health is your best
bet for having a happy and successful summer.

Summer Hair Care
The same rays that can damage skin also are hard on the hair, McLean
noted. She recommends wearing a hat while in the sun to protect
both your hair and your scalp, which can get sunburned and dry
and could end up damaging your hair roots.
Kat Omara, a designer at Wyomissing Hair Studio, said it's important
to moisturize your hair, as well as your skin.
"Make sure that you're using moisturizer for both your hair and
your body," she said.
Omara recommends a product called Eufora Beautifying Serum,
available at the salon. It can be used on both the hair and the skin,
she said, providing moisture that protects and smooths.
If you spend a lot of time outdoors, find a conditioner that you
like and use it regularly from mid-length to the ends of your hair.
Most people do not require moisturizer directly on their hair roots.
If you're a swimmer and your hair gets damaged from chlorine,
you may benefit from a deep-cleansing shampoo that will remove
the chemicals from your hair. You can alternate that with a shampoo
that's more nourishing to condition the hair.
And, regular trims are recommended to remove ends from
damaged hair.

"I put on my moisturizer and let it dry before I put on my makeup,"
"Chlorine is tough on hair, so it's important to keep up with your
she said. "If I'm going to work and to be inside all day, I won't reapply.
But, if I'm outside gardening or playing with my kids for more than 15 trims and make sure you get the chlorine out of your hair when
minutes, I'll reapply and reapply again after an hour if I'm still outside." you're out of the pool," Omara said.
