Norwalk, CN (PRWEB) June 1, 2006
The sun is shining, and the beach beckons, yet skin pays the price of summer fun. With skin cancer on the rise, anyone spending even just a few minutes outside should take special care to protect their skin. AP9 Galleria USA, a leading discount membership program available by Adaptive Marketing LLC, offers summer skin care tips while saving members money on skin products and other shopping needs.
By conveniently logging on to DealPass, AP9 GalleriaUSA members have access to budget-friendly benefits for today’s fashions, flowers and gifts, luggage and eyewear at their favorite national retailers.

AP9 Galleria USA urges anyone seeking a summer glow to take care of their skin by using these commonsense tips.
-- Fake it. A great way to avoid the sun but still get the summer glow is to use a sunless tanning product. Although they’ve been on the market for some time, these tanning products have increased in number and variety. Sunless tanning lotion is the most common product available, but tanning is even easier now with wipe-on towelettes, mousses and the popular airbrush tan. The latter is available at your local drug or department store, and many tanning salons now offer this service as well.
-- Be gentle. Like the seasons, a skin care regimen should change accordingly. This means that a lighter facial moisturizer may be preferred (although it should still contain sunscreen) and special care taken for skin that is exposed to sunlight for any period of time. The sun dries the skin, so be sure to find a lotion that hydrates. Avoid harsh scrubs or exfoliants, and opt for an exfoliant that contains a mild alpha-hydroxy acid.
-- Apply in layers and repeat. Proper sunscreen application is more than just slapping on a thin layer and heading outside. Experts say that sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before sun exposure and then again after 20 minutes of being in the sun. And “waterproof” products aren’t truly that; all sunscreens should be re-applied at regular intervals for maximum skin protection.
-- Minimize the burn. No matter how much caution is taken, at some point almost everyone gets sunburn. This uncomfortable condition is painful, but some simple home remedies can help. Aloe vera gels and lotions will soothe skin, while cool compresses will help minimize that overheated sensation. Take care, however, and consult a physician for more serious burns that cause in blisters or dehydration. Peeling is inevitable, so be sure to moisturize every day.
In addition to these summer skin protection tips, members can save 20% on gift cards purchased for major retail and department stores where they can shop for all of their beauty, fashion and everyday needs, concludes AP9 GalleriaUSA.
