Enjoy the Sun Without Worries

This summer, sanitize, moisturize, and protect your skin.
Protecting your skin from sun exposure and germs is crucial year-round, and now, with summer in full swing, be sure to take extra precautions while you get out and enjoy the sun. Doctor D. Schwab has all the skincare essentials you need for summer 2020, and has special sets with a hand sanitizer or moisturizer with the purchase of sunscreen! Whether you’re planning a staycation, heading to the beach, a pool, barbecue, out into the wilderness, or taking a trip far away, be sure to have Doctor D. Schwab products on hand (literally!).
Applying sunscreen is the most important part of every skincare routine because it protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. There are two types of UV rays, UVA and UVB, and overexposure to either can lead to skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays cause skin aging, fine lines, wrinkles and age spots and they can pass through window glass (pssst, have you been applying sunscreen while sheltering in place?). The second type of sun rays, UVB rays, are the type that cause sunburn, and both types are reflected off snow, sand, and water, increasing the need for skin protection. Thankfully, all of Doctor D. Schwab sunscreens are broad spectrum, and formulated to defend against both UVA and UVB rays. The highest level of advanced protection is the Doctor D. Schwab Umbrella Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40
Before applying sunscreen, it’s vital that you moisturize skin because dry skin is more vulnerable to the sun. In your daily routine, after you apply moisturizer, give it time to set in before applying sunscreen (try brushing your hair or your teeth while you’re waiting for maximum productivity).
The Sea Enzyme Mega-Moisture Mist can be used before or after spending time in the heat to give your skin a boost of hydration. It’s formulated with aloe and seaweed, and has a fresh rosemary mint scent. Simply spritz wherever it’s needed—hair, face, body— and go, for the perfect mid-day pick-me-up! (Pro-tip: try storing it in the fridge for an extra refreshing mist.) 
Doctor D. Schwab sunscreens provide an oil-free, lightweight and non-greasy layer of protection and work great under make up. The Doctor D. Schwab Sea Enzyme Ultra-Umbrella Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 blends into skin effortlessly and can be used on your face and body. It’s enriched with antioxidants, aloe, kelp, and sunflower seed oil to soothe and moisturize skin. Doctor D. Schwab Umbrella Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and SPF 40 provide ultra-hydrating skin protection. The sodium hyaluronate, rose-hip fruit oil, aloe, and white tea work to soothe, and soften skin. Additionally, grape stem cell extract in it fights free radical damage with potent antioxidants. The Shimmery Sun Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 shares the benefits, with an added subtle shimmer that will give your skin a healthy-looking, radiant glow. Remember, just like hand sanitizer, for best results, sunscreen must be applied frequently (about every two hours, or more often if you go in the water or sweat). 
When making plans outdoors this summer, keep in mind the sun is strongest between 11am and 3pm, so if possible, opt for a shady area or carry along an umbrella and wear sun-protective clothing if you’re planning a beach day. Enjoy the sunshine this summer, and keep your skin protected and sanitized!

6 Lifestyle Habits to Stay Healthy and Boost Immunity

The best defense is a good offense. With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many people are concerned with staying healthy and strengthening their immune system. The immune system helps to prevent infection and fight off illness. As just one of many systems in the body, it requires balance and harmony with the rest of your body in order for it to function optimally. 
Doctors say the best way to stay healthy is to wash your hands, practice social distancing, and staying home as much as possible. Here are six healthy-living strategies you can implement from the comfort of your home to improve your overall health and give your immune system the upper hand. 
1. Wash your hands and keep frequently touched surfaces clean.  If there is one thing the COVID-19 outbreak has taught us, it’s personal hygiene (anyone else notices how much they touch their face?!). Doctors across the board agree washing your hands frequently is an absolute necessity to prevent illness and keep you and your family safe. 

Brighten Your Skin, Brighten Your Life

Has being cooped up inside all day given you a lackluster feeling? The stress of being in quarantine can bring dullness to your mood and in turn, your skin. If you’ve noticed a lack of radiance in your skin recently, there’s no need to worry. With just a few simple reminders (you’re already wearing sunscreen everyday of course), and a little skin TLC, you can get your glow back so you’re strutting out of quarantine with a pep in your step (and a smile on your face!). 
Get Your Glow Back!
Hydrate and Maintain Healthy Nutrition  If there’s one thing you can do to positively impact your skin and overall health, it’s drinking more water. Dehydration can trigger moodiness, fatigue, and cause lasting damage to your skin such as fine lines and wrinkles. When you’re dehydrated, it decreases the amount of blood flow to your skin making you look tired. Aim for 8 glasses of water per day and keep your skin glowing and bright. 
“You are what you eat” absolutely applies here. What you put into your bo…
