Wear Protection

Sparklers and rockets, barbeques and swimming…sounds like a wonderful Independence Day celebration. It also sounds like a lot of sun exposure, so be sure to protect that pretty face with DMK Suncreen, available at Tamara’s Skin Care. This SPF 30 skin protector will help shield from UVA and UVB rays, it also has a water resistant base that will be okay with the splish and the splash. Have a wonderful 4th of July! #Tamarasskincare #sunscreen #skincare 

Miss California Loves Tamara’s Skin Care

Such satisfaction when you hear words like this:
“Tamara is not only sweet, fun & enjoyable to be around, but she just happens to be the BEST esthetician around! I am Miss California 2016 and starting working with Tamara my first week on the job. As Miss California, I am kept busy with a jam packed schedule. Days can be very exhausting and I find myself lacking sleep, therefore say hello to dark circles and puffy eyes! Tamara and the help of the DMK products she uses, makes sure that I am always looking fresh and ready to conquer the day. In my preparation for Miss America, Tamara is making my skin looking the best it has EVER been!! I cannot wait to show America how my skin glows because of Tamara’s work. I LOVE Tamara! She can conquer any skin concern you have, or she can help you radiate confidence and have the perfect glow 🙂

1) oxybenzone,

2) retinyl palmitate and

3) SPFs above 50+.

Sunscreen Hall of Shame

excerpted from EWG Sunscreen Guide*

There are a lot of sunscreens on the market: some good, some bad and then the shameful.

Those in the last category are not only a waste of money and time but also potentially harmful. Here are our picks for products to banish from your beach bag.

Spray sunscreens can be inhaled, and they don’t cover skin completely.

SPF values above 50+ try to trick you into believing they’ll prevent sun damage. Don’t trust them. SPF protection tops out at 30 to 50.

Oxybenzone can disrupt the hormone system.

Retinyl palmitate may trigger damage, possibly cancer.
