Keep your skin happy and healthy this summer

Being outdoors is by far one of the best parts of summer time, however it doesn’t come without risk, especially when it comes to skin health. Taking a few simple steps to care for your skin is always important and especially so during the long days of summer.

1. Wear Sunscreen. Whether the skies are sunny or overcast, everyone should wear sunscreen. Use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF and that protects against ultraviolet light and UVB rays, the sun’s most damaging forms. Apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before heading out the door to ensure it’s absorbed into the skin. If you’re planning to be outdoors two hours or longer, bring a small travel size sunscreen to reapply. Besides protecting your skin from sunburn, wearing sunscreen regularly reduces skin aging.

2. Dress for the Sun.  Certain technical fabrics are designed and labeled as “sun protective.” Also, even though lighter-colored fabric might feel cooler, darker fabrics shield more ultraviolet rays.

3. Cover Vulnerable Spots.  The most vulnerable body parts to the sun’s rays are the ears, lips, shoulders, and top of the head. These areas have a higher incidence of skin cancer. To avoid extra damage and sunburn, apply sunscreen liberally to these areas. Also, try wearing a hat or visor to block the sun. Besides protecting your skin, the hat will keep your head cool on hot summer runs.

4. Eat Vitamin D.  Vitamin D, or the “sunshine vitamin,” has many important functions, including promoting bone health. But it’s better to eat it than to absorb it. Vitamin D can be found in fish, oysters, tofu and soy milk, fortified dairy products, eggs, and other foods.

5.  Stay Hydrated, Use George’s Cream.  Be sure to stay hydrated.  Hydrate your skin by drinking plenty of water and using George’s Cream moisturizers daily.

Valerie from Alberta Says George’s Cream Is Truly A Miracle Product

Another AWESOME testimonial about George’s Cream from Valerie in Alberta! How WONDERFUL to know! Thanks so much for sharing.

After years of enduring horribly dry skin on my cheeks and forehead, I was skeptical to try this. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on all types of salves, creams, ointments, lotions, oils, skin peels, face masks, treatments, home remedies, etc. I’ve tried everything from expensive prescription creams, to completely stopping wearing make-up, to a dozen homemade pastes. The only results I’ve ever seen were drier skin than before and horrible acne breakouts. And then I was at the grocery store an afternoon and decided to try your product.

Not only is it fragrance-free, allergen-free, made in Canada, and not tested on animals, but you get a LOT of product for your dollar. The best part? It actually works!! You can not imagine my excitement when I was finally able to put on makeup without my skin looking dry and crusty!! With a lot of the other products giving me horrible breakouts and oily skin, it was a dream come true that my skin is now baby-soft without all the acne and oil that comes along with other products. Having smooth, moisturized skin has given me a lot more confidence when out in public and interacting with other people.

Not only did your product fix my dry skin, but it fixed my boyfriend’s. He developed an unexplained rash on his leg that even ointments prescribed by different doctors couldn’t fix. Only two ( yes, two! ) applications of George’s Special Dry Skin Cream made his rash vanish.

I will never buy another lotion again. This is truly a miracle product! Thank you!!”

George’s Cream Testimonial From Ontario

Hi:  First of all, I have to say that our family loves your product!  I work with 40 women, and I would say that 3/4 of them have George’s Cream on their desk!  This is how I became introduced to your product.

It is the ONLY product I will use on my 2 children, both of whom have sensitive skin.  My oldest daughter is 7 and she can only use George’s with no reaction.  My younger daughter is 2 and George’s was the only product  that cured very stubborn eczema.  My husband – decidedly anti-product of any sort – even uses it as work where his hands get very dry and irritated.

This leads me to the reason for my email.  I see on your website that you sell 30mL purse sizes.  However, I have never seen any in stores.  This would be very handy for swim bags, diaper bags, purses, travelling etc. Can you inform me of any places in Ontario that stock the 30mL purse sizes?

Thanks in advance!

Janet Clarke
