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.

The updates covered things like avoiding the sun at it’s hottest, and what time that is in Canada with climate change …

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.

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 …
