Maintaining one’s skin is important as it is the body’s largest organ and is constantly exposed to harmful conditions. Healthy skin care products are the key. Whether it’s UV rays, chemicals, toxins, irritants, allergens, or a host of other things, being aware is critical for protection. Using healthy skin products protects against one of the greatest risks to robust skin, UV rays, both UVA and UVB. They both are harmful and can lead to skin cancers, early aging and wrinkles.
MTII develops a tan from the lower dermis outward rather from top down. Good sunscreens protect the skin from both UV rays and help to moisturize the skin. Sothys, Coola, and NIA24, we feel, are all high quality products that can protect the epidermis.
After-Sun products are also important for maintaining gorgeous skin.

Some experts recommend to always moisturize after showering or bathing to trap more moisture in the skin.
Shoppers should be cognizant of products which have ingredients that can work against a healthy lifestyle. Visit The Toxic Twelve Chemicals and Contaminants in Cosmetics | Environmental Working Group (ewg.org) to read about certain ingredients that can be harmful if used in large doses. Many of the items they list are acceptable if used in small quantities but that means the product should be aligned farther down the list of ingredients on the label.
