    Summer Tips & Tricks

    It’s the season we’ve all been waiting for! Show off your beautiful skin, but follow these easy steps to practice safe sun.

    Dangene’s Sun Vigilance Plan:

    • Use a physical sunblock that contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to protect those sensitive areas we tend to forget: knees, nose, chin, hands, tops of the feet, tops of the shoulders, etc. We carry Obagi Nuderm Physical UV Block & Sanitas Solar Block.
    • If you’re a bug magnet, wear bug spray (chose from many organic products) or Dangene’s favorite brand: Avon’s Skin So Soft to avoid the bug bite scars that can mar the skin while healing.
    • Carry an anti-friction stick like Band-aid brand Friction Block or Band-aids to avoid blisters.
    • Wear a scarf or hat to protect your hair color, hair follicles, and tender scalp.
    • Wear lip balm 24/7, and whether you prefer a stick, a pot, or a tube, choose one with SPF coverage and reapply often. We use Brave Soldier Lip Defender and Nivea A Kiss of Shine.
    • Wear big sunglasses to protect eyes and the eye area, walk on the shady side of the street, and wear long sleeves and long, loose pants. In addition, super-sensitive people may choose to wear sun-protective clothing and/or carry a parasol.
