Summer and Reactions to Medications

When you’re travelling, it’s NOT a good time to try new medications, new supplements, or new creams for you or your family. Vacations can be ruined by a family member with a serious allergic reaction to something!

Save changes to any medications or supplements or skin care products for when you’re home and your regular doctors are available. Remember that herbs and supplements, particularly in higher doses, act as drugs (they alter your chemistry) and can cause allergic reactions too!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
