Published by . Filed under Skincare. Total of no comments in the discussion.

If you are serious about protecting your skin, as well as keeping it looking amazing for as long as possible, protection 365 days of the year is very important. Sun damage is something that builds up over time. The exposure of a lifetime of sun begins to show itself in other ways such as premature lines and wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sensitivity and repair mechanisms slow down immensely. UV radiation is affected by multiple factors, such as time of the year, but even in colder temperatures, cloudy or windy days, UV light can penetrate and increase the sun damage to your skin.

Skin cancer affects people of all ages. Each year, a total of 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States, and on the average, one person dies every hour of melanoma.

The good news is that sunscreen can be worn all year round. A full spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays is recommended. UVA rays contribute to the premature signs of aging, can play a part in the formation of skin cancer and can pass through window glass and penetrate deeper into the skin. UVB rays penetrate the outer layer of the skin causing damage to the skin cells, are the primary cause of sunburn and can play a part in the formation of skin cancer as well. Depending on your lifestyle, it is important to decide which types of sunscreen will work for you: a cream, mineral stick or body spray.

Choosing safe ingredients in your sunscreen is an important consideration. Chemical sunscreens can be absorbed into the bloodstream and cause skin irritation and health problems. Physical sunscreens, using minerals such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, actually create a barrier on the skin that block the sun’s rays. They sit on the outer layer of the skin and won’t absorb into the skin.

Indigo Salon & Spa is proud to offer MDSOLARSCIENCES, a line of sun care and sun repair products that reduce the appearance of past sun damage, while protecting your skin from cancer and melanoma. The mineral sunscreens that Indigo carries offer 17% zinc oxide and 2% titanium dioxide. The formulas feel great to wear, are rigidly tested and safer for you and the environment. And the good news is that they offer a Quick Body Spray which does not have the chemical oxybenzone, which has toxic effects on coral reefs worldwide.  For more information about the mineral sunscreens and Quick Body Spray call Indigo Salon & Spa at 619-294-3055.

Indigo Salon & Spa of Hillcrest, CA, is helping area patrons prepare for the holiday season by offering a wide variety of great holiday hairstyles to choose from at their Fourth Avenue location. For many, seasonal preparation begins with attention to personal appearance and establishing a version of oneself that promotes a sense of well-being and confidence. The Indigo Salon is now offering a selection of hairstyles designed to accomplish exactly that for clients, as the holiday season arrives in the Hillcrest/San Diego area.

In addition to its hair styling services, the company also provides many of the typical services associated with spas, including massage therapy and facials for skin rejuvenation. Indigo Salon & Spa prides itself as a company for creating a hip, modern atmosphere that combines the glam components of a Hollywood-style venue, with the kind of warmth and friendliness that make even the most reticent client feel right at home. 

Indigo Salon & Spa has an extensive staff of highly qualified hair stylists, all of whom have extensive knowledge, and years of experience in the business of providing customized hairstyles to suit all tastes. The focus of team philosophy with regard to styling centers around the elements of cut, color, and texture, and these are considered to be at the foundation of the distinctly Indigo style of hairdressing.

The San Diego hair salon accepts appointments for all days of the week, although hours vary from day to day, so it would be prudent to call the office, or consult the website for working hours on any specific day of interest. It is anticipated that interest in holiday hairstyles will contribute to a busy schedule for the remainder of the calendar year, so appointments should be booked at the earliest opportunity to avoid being disappointed.
