Physical vs. Chemical Sunscreen

Urban Body Blog 0 Comments

Our skin is precious and we need to protect it. Every year, the summer rays get us thinking that maybe we need to update our sun defense regime. The thing is, we should be shielding ourselves all year round. Every time we walk outside we are exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays. In our hotter months, higher heats make covering up uncomfortable, and a wide brimmed hat isn’t always practical. So what are our options? Most of us are overwhelmed by what the drugstore aisle offers to shade our skin. The thing is, the best options aren’t always sitting …

BIG NEWS: GET 20% OFF SUNFORGETTABLES THIS MONTH! If you’ve ever followed Urban Body Laser on Instagram, visited our medi-spa, or perused through our blog, then you’ve probably heard us say once (or maybe a 100 times) how important daily application of sunscreen is for anti-aging.

I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me….

Urban Body Blog

I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me…. and I think I like it….. I have always been content with the way I appear on the outside.  I’m no beauty queen, but I’m happy about how I look. Also, I have never been caught up with getting older.  Some of the most beautiful humans I have ever laid eyes on are in their 80’s. So, I had never really thought of facial rejuvenation as something I’d be into.  I heard the ads that my friends from Urban Body Laser ran on the PEAK pretty much ever since we …

Because as the colder weather starts to creep in, it’s the perfect time to start your laser hair removal treatments.

Sunscreen 101: Physical vs. Chemical

Urban Body Blog

With summer looming, all we seem to think about are beach days and sunset nights. But before we can catch a glimpse of those beautiful rays, there’s one important tool we need before we can step out into the sun: sunscreen. Even on cloudy days, the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays can penetrate the epidermis, causing premature aging and sunspots. That’s why choosing the right sunscreen for your body is so important. But with seemingly endless choices like waterproof or water-resistant, face or body, lotion or mist, not to mention a multitude of different SPF levels, it’s hard to …
