N: Hello everyone. I'm Natasha and welcome to this week's LovelySkin blog update.
C: And I'm Candise. Thanks guys. Thanks for coming back. So, this week what we're talking about is 20% off the beach bag essentials. These are products that are great for skin care, hair care. It covers makeup and also body products. Also, these are all great things that you can throw in your beach bag whether you're headed to the pool or to the beach.
N: Nice. So one of the things we're focusing on the blog this week is tanning bed myths because, as you know, a lot of people are spending time in them trying to get ready for the beach and that kind of thing, but there are a few things that you should know. One, that there's this myth that you get less exposure than you would out in the sun if you're in a tanning bed. Totally not true. You actually get more exposure to harmful rays when you're in a tanning bed. And then, lastly, there's a myth that tanning beds don't cause cancer. The reality is that if you spend time in a tanning bed your chances of getting skin cancer actually double. It's a pretty significant increase so we want you guys to embrace that truth right there and stay out of those tanning beds.
C: And speaking of tanning beds, the other option nowadays is self-tanners. You can actually visit LovelySkin.com/SelfTanner and we have a great video on there that gives you a really great, proper way to apply those self-tanners.
N: Absolutely, and we feature a couple of them, too.
C: Make sure you exfoliate. This is key. This helps to get all those dead skin cells off the surface of the skin to help really smooth the skin so that way it lasts longer. Also, to start working from the foot up that way if you're doubled over, you know, trying to do it. If you start from the top down, you might cause lines and creases, you know, from your self-tanner and everything. One of the things I've also found, too, is make sure you put plenty of cream on the hands, elbows, knees and feet before starting.
N: Right, those dry areas.
C: Those dry areas, yep, so that way it doesn't cling too strongly to those areas and make it obvious that you've been self-tanning.
N: Oompa Loompa orange, bad color on everyone.
C: Right, exactly.
N: Okay, so with all this talk of tanning, tanning beds, et cetera, one of the things we want to ask you guys is where you've had your worst sunburn, how you got your worst sunburn. We've all had one, the kind where you can't stand up straight.
C: Been there, done that.
N: Right, that hurts really bad. So, we'd like to hear your story, so visit us on Facebook and check it out. We're having a contest. We'll pick one lucky winner who apparently was unlucky at one point in time. But we're giving away an Epionce Extreme Barrier Cream. This stuff is absolutely amazing.
