Fall into Savings During Healthy Aging Month!
September is Healthy Aging Month – and for busy moms, aging well doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. The board-certified dermatologists at Levy Dermatology say that skin protection is as easy as ABC: Avoidance (stay out of direct sunlight as much as possible), Block/Sunblock (use sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays), and Clothing (wear clothing and gear that protects your skin from harmful rays and sun damage).
Common signs of aging such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown marks and overall volume loss in your cheeks and face can make you appear older than you really are.
