This entry is short and sweet… As I head out to the beach, I am sharing with you a new Sunscreen that I am using which is Chemical-free. Who knows what is in the water these days, so this Sun Shield as they call it, protects not only your face and body, but does not contaminate the Ocean.

MYCHELLE Dermaceuticals is non-irrtating, and has a creamy texture when applying to ones skin. The Sunblock is Zinclear, for all skin types, non toxic and Reef safe.

They have a complete line which I will provide more detail on at a later time, as well as an array of different paraben free sunblock choices. I like MYCHELLE because it not only protects my skin, but still allows me a bit of color without any redness or burn.

So as you head out into the Sunshine, please cover up and check the labels so that you are free of  toxins while celebrating our Independence Day!

MYCHELLE Sun Shield is SPF 28, a full spectrum sun block and organic aloe that preserves skins moisture but does not clog your pores or sting eyes.

What are you major skin concerns? Share them with me and I will provide you natural alternatives to enhance your skin and treat it well for thelong term results.

Have a fantastic holiday and a chemical free Summer!

SUSTAINABLITY, YOU BET!


This is not to put anyone down; it is simply a valid question… Do you know what sustainable means in the context surrounding us today? Simply put, sustainable products, programs and developments create something out of resources that are disrupting our planet and environment. Sustainability has become a necessity in the sea, on land and for mankind. I am not the dictionary version of sustainable, I’m a journalist who is learning how desperately important it is that we not only become more aware of the sustainable products available to us and the need to rebuild our resources.

When did mankind become the sea’s predator, today we are worse then ever.  the documentary movie, The End of The Line by filmmaker Rupert Murray, based on the book by Charles Clover, states that at our current juncture, we will run out of seafood by 2048. Sadly, this is not new news, but if it is to you, check out the film, do not eat Blue Fin Tuna, and read up more about fish that are endangered… most important, don’t eat them! Learn about trolling, an insane way that fishermen catch fish, they should be called poachers, not fishermen.

Did you know that Mitsubishi is into the Fish Market? They are stocking up and freezing the endangered Blue Fin Tuna, this allows them to mark it up to a ridiculous price. However, we are human beings and have a choice, we can shift the way we are going by becoming aware and making different choices.

Here are a few sustainable companies worth checking out…                             www.Threadsforthought.com that manufactures cozy, comfortable clothing made out of Organic Cotton, and recycled bottles. Try sustainable, fabulous Wines that you can find on www.uncorqed.com such as www.ClosPepeVineyards.com and valuable sustainable information on the website, www.shft.com

Sustainability supports what we have been given and it is up to us to give it back. Don’t you think kindergartners today deserve to live in a world that provides life, not extinction? Let’s not eat ourselves up.
