Preparing For Those Summer Elements

As the temperatures begin to rise I am sure you’ll be spending more time outside, which means you will also be needing to protect that beautiful skin of yours. It is okay to have fun in the sun, but you also owe it to yourself to treat your skin graciously.

So what do you need to protect your skin from the outside elements? Sunscreen is not just for a day at the water-park, lake or beach. If you plan on being outside longer than 15-30 minutes, you should be applying sunscreen. Sun damage can happen anytime your skin is exposed to the outside. The sun can also do more harm than an uncomfortable sunburn. The longterm effects of sun damage can cause brown spots, skin cancer, early wrinkling and the list goes on. This means every part of your body that is exposed to the elements needs to be coated. Your body, face and even your lips. A good rule of thumb is to apply sunscreen every one to two hours. If you are planning on being in the water or sweating, your probably want to be safe and reapply every hour. When selecting your sunscreen you should be buying a sunscreen that offers protection from UVA and UVB rays, with a minimum protection of SPF 30. You are going to receive the most sun between 10:00am and 4:00pm. I personally know the sun cannot be avoided at all times, but during peak hours there are ways to limit your sun exposure. Place yourself in a shady area as much as possible, or wear a rashguard and hat when in the sun for prolonged period. This will protect you from wind exposure as well. And finally, after a long day of sand, chlorine, salt, wind, sunscreen and insect repellant it is best to use a gentle cleaner with a exfoliant to clean away the days pollutants.

All in all, sunlight is not bad for us. Not only does it offer our daily does of vitamin D, it harbors many other benefits to our health. However, we just need to be conscious of its full power.


Happy New Year everyone!

I wanted to say thank you to every single one of you who has been supporting and waiting patiently with our changes throughout 2010.

2010 started for us with big changes. Firstly, we moved into a new facility that has much   more room for a new laboratory, more manufacturing space and storage areas. Lots of new equipments to make our production quick and efficient and a few more staff members who are very innovative and dedicated to what they do, As CEO of AYU International,  I smile and enjoy every moment I spend here in our new facility, especially  remembering how our business started in a small area, which we shared with another business. I have been very grateful to what we have achieved and I am grateful to all the support from you, our customers because without you this would not have been successful.

So, today as we start our first day of work in 2011, I wanted to take a second and wish all of us a very Happy Healthy and Prosperous New Year-2011!

Thank you for being part of AYU’s Success Story!

Warm wishes,
