Prevention is better than cure

As a knowledgable cosmetics consultant for Elizabeth Arden once told me, “Prevention is better than cure”. Skin is the largest organ of our body and deserves our tender loving care. If you put junk food into your body you will eventually become ill. If you do not take care of your skin with the right products it will not function to its optimim.

It is still the one beauty product that helps prevent skin cancer and premature ageing. Yet, 85% of the US population is still unaware that the primary cause of skin ageing, brown spots, wrinkles and cancer are the sun’s rays. While Australia has less incidences of skin cancer than UK.
