Summer is on its way!  Of course, we have to get through Spring first, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be prepared for those longer — and sunnier — days.

Chris decided to go through the latest Mary Kay “Look Book” to find out just how many products have “Sunscreen Broad Spectrum” or “SPF” properties.  Unless she missed some products, there appear to be about nine sun-protection products.  From a couple of Mary Kay’s original TimeWise® products (one moisturizer and one under-foundation protector) to today’s latest product — CC Cream — Mary Kay has been finding more and better ways for us to protect our skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays.  Of course, there are a couple Mary Kay® Sun Care sunscreens, too!

So come to hear Chris tell about the various ways we can protect our skin when we’re out in the sun.  It is important for each of us to do so — it’s the only skin we’ll have.

As always, there will be a few prize drawings!

Far Infrared Light has many therapeutic benefits.  Come not only hear about the benefits, but get to experience a TDP Far Infrared Light.  Infrared is not visible to our eyes, but we do experience as heat.  It is that comforting warm feeling of sunshine, however it’s not to be confused with the more harmful ultraviolet light.  Our bodies have a high capacity to absorb the healing energy of far infrared and there are conditions, especially soft tissue damage, that greatly respond to this therapy.
