Red, White & BeYOUty!

Skin Authority user @jessicataylorstevenson  What exactly IS a sunburn? Is it really possible to make the pain, redness and embarrassment go away? Yes, it most certainly is… It’s all fun in the sun until someone gets burnt- sun-burnt that is.

SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO SENSITIVE SKIN

Sensitive skin is a difficult issue to diagnose. It can be any number of things that can cause hives, inflammation, unruly zits, and blemishes, or flaky skin. Whatever the reason, we have a solution! Below is a quick list of some remedies that you can use to calm your face and ease your mind. UH HUH HONEY The easiest remedy that we’ve found is so sweet and simple. One word, one ingredient: honey. That’s right. Raw honey is nature’s own skin care product. It works as an antibacterial agent (less pimples, faster healing wounds) as well as a moisturizer. On top of that, it preserves your skin’s acid mantle (the thin layer that your skin produces to prevent infections and breakouts). So next time you’re at the store, make sure to pick up some raw honey and spread that sweetness. FACIAL SNACKS Sure, oatmeal and yogurt make for really great … Continue reading

5 Ways to Protect Your Skin from the Sun

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and Skin Authority is making a point to inform everyone on how to protect your skin from the sun. Skin is the body’s largest organ, we have to take care of it!
