It's that time again -- on the first of each month, we like to take a look back at what's trending when it comes to topics such as health and wellness, skin care, beauty, mindfulness and self care. 

What's trending this month? Let's take a look!

Seed shares what is trending in beauty news

  • {BEAUTY} The Observer features a story on ingestible beauty products. Citing a link between gut health and the condition of the skin, natural beauty brands are now offering products that you can eat, that are said to be filled with antioxidants, probiotics, herbs and more. These are now on the market in powdered form that you can put in your breakfast smoothies. There isn't yet science to show that nutritionals, indeed, will work on the outer appearance of the skin, but it is food for thought.

 

  • {SKIN CARE} CosmoBiz magazine featured an extensive sun care guide in their June issue. The article focuses on not falling for marketing hype -- for example, if your sunscreen bottle claims to be an SPF 100, it is too good to be true. It also mentions the proper "dosage" of sunscreen (the equivalent of a shot glass) and reiterated the importance of applying sunscreen liberally to help fight skin cancer. It also includes a list of sunscreen ingredients to look for -- and those to avoid.

 

  • {WELLNESS} In a new article today in the Huffington Post, there was an eye-opening look at the health of the more than 3 million people in the workplace worldwide. Despite there being such a booming wellness industry, it appears that self care and wellness can be cost prohibitive for too many. The stats are grim: workplace stress and economic insecurity are fueling a rise in chronic illnesses. In other parts of the world, mining and factory incidents continue to be in the news. In fact, there are more than 6000 deaths related to occupational hazards each day. Evidence shows that the health of the global workforce has actually deteriorated. What can be done to solve these issues?

5 Ways the Sun Impacts the Skin

Summer is officially here! After a long, very unusual spring, it is nice to get outside and relax in the summer sun.

I love the feeling of soaking up the rays, but sun smarts are essential for your skin.

The sun's UV rays can greatly impact the condition of the skin. While sitting with our faces toward the sun makes us feel so good, it is important to remember that we have to be vigilant about our sun care.

My 25 year background in skin care has shown me just how important protecting our skin from UVA and UVB rays truly is. I practice what I preach. I wear sunscreen. I moisturize. I remove my makeup at night.

I am human, though, and I make mistakes. Yesterday was one of those days. It was unusually hot here. I finished up my work after lunch and noticed that the outside temperature was 96 degrees. I was skimming the pool and made sure to put on more sunscreen before jumping in.

I was so comfortable just floating on my raft. Floating around just relaxing felt so good! I planned to be in the water for about an hour when my 14 year old jumped in. We had a blast playing baseball with a beach ball and pool noodle, making a whirlpool, and playing games. If you have a teenager, you will understand what a treat it is to enjoy one on one time just having fun with that child who normally would rather be doing something else. This extra time together during the pandemic has been a gift, because there is much more family time. We had so much fun — and before I knew it, I had been in the water for nearly three hours.

I was careful to reapply my sunscreen everywhere — but I neglected my back. And boy did I learn my lesson. I now have a blistering sunburn on about 40% of my back and it is incredibly painful. In addition to being concerned about the potential for lasting damage and cellular changes done to my skin, I am finding it hard to get comfortable. This was preventable, though.

I cannot change yesterday’s mistake, but I can help alleviate the pain and I thought I would share how you can, too, should you finding yourself in need of some sunburn relief.
