Did you know that an estimated 90 percent of skin aging is caused by the sun? Not only does the sun cause some major wear and tear to the appearance of your skin, it can cause other life threatening problems as well.
Melanoma is on the rise, and Utahns are particularly at risk. Utah residents are just not taking care of themselves the way they should be, given the ever-increasing risk. We love that the sun is always shining in Utah, but we’d love it even more if we say everyone protecting themselves the way they should.
In Utah, and across the United States, skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer (according to the Utah Cancer Action Network). Utah’s has reported the highest incidence of melanoma in the country, and the Utah Department of Health reports that the number of cases continues to rise year after year.
This isn’t just a Utah Spa, who helps reverse and protect against the signs of aging talking, experts and medical professionals are speaking out about the importance of proper sun protection. Read this amazing article in KSL for details on different studies and information from experts.

We also are adamant that our clients wear sunscreen every day. Medical grade sunscreen with great ingredients and physical blockers to help protect your beautiful face.
