The twinkly lights, the frosted windows, the carols sung merrily on high. The season is upon us! We’re starting to dream of decorating the tree, hanging our stockings with care, and waking up to whiteness dusting our neighbourhoods.

While we may have our lists of goodies and treats that we are looking forward to, some families are simply trying to make it through the coldest time of year. The reality is that there are many …

Microdermabrasion for Fall

Urban Body Blog 0 Comments

Summer rays are fading and with them, our sun kissed glows. That’s not the only thing about our skin that will change with the coming of Autumn. As much as we want to hang on to our tans, earning them will have left our skin drier than we would like. Combine that with lower moisture in the air and our skin will soon be gasping with thirst! Coming into Fall, your skincare routine should be all about repairing and rehydrating. To combat sun damage from the summer months and deter flakey patches, we need moisture and rejuvenation. The latter can …

Aloe to the Rescue!

Urban Body Blog 0 Comments

Getting outside and taking advantage of life’s small adventures is absolutely something we encourage. Just like too much sun exposure, there are other risks that come with being bold. Case in point: When one of our daughters recently set out to play on her long board, she experienced an unfortunate meeting between pavement and forehead. The result: a big, sticky scrape across her face in the middle of a hot summer. Poor girl! In a moment of inspiration, we realized that we had the perfect product right at our fingertips to take care of this dilemma. In our R3 Derma …

Sun Safety: Prevent and Repair

Urban Body Blog 1 Comment

When it comes to sun safety, there are the basics that we can all agree on: cover up with a hat or tightly knit clothing, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, and avoid long-term exposure. Surprisingly, even on a National level other major protocols that we would think would be agreed upon across the board, are still debated by professionals like pharmacists, dermatologists, and oncologists. Last year, the Canadian Sun Safety Guidelines got their first update in 20 years. The updates covered things like avoiding the sun at it’s hottest, and what time that is in Canada with climate change …

Positive Power

Urban Body Blog 0 Comments

The power of positive thought has been studied and speculated about in many different forms. There seems to be professionals from varying fields (scientists, psychologists, etc.) with experts for and against the current research. Some believe that experiments of this nature can’t be fully controlled, despite physical evidence showing that positive thinking is very influential, and therefore we can never be sure what the effects of these ideas really are. Both sides have valid points. Our team wanted to put these beliefs to the test. We gathered a group of our staff and tried a form of Energy Muscle Testing …

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 …
