Keep your family’s skin and scalp looking and feeling fabulous all summer long.

Prevent Scars
It’s finally summer, which means a lot of us are more active and therefore likely to get wounds that turn into scars. “Thankfully there is Embrace Active Scar Defense, the only FDA-cleared scar therapy system,” says Beauty and Lifestyle Expert Bahar Takhtechian.The product works because it’s involved in body’s natural healing process: It contracts by holding both sides of an incision together, therefore relieving tension. In that process it prevents formation of excess collagen that causes dark, visible raised scars. “I love how convenient this product is to use. You apply once every ten days and can do normal things like swim and exercise and shower,” she says.

Embrace Active Scar Defense works for all ages skin types and is available at, or via your plastic surgeon.

Baby Their Skin
You want to give them the best of everything. That includes skincare, and Cetaphil is recommended by more dermatologists and pediatricians than any other brand. “This one is for kids. It features two products: Cetaphil Baby Wash and Shampoo which contains calming calendula extract, glycerin and Aloe Vera extract. Follow up with Baby Daily Lotion which also has calming calendula extract plus sunflower and almond oil to nourish and hydrate,” says Takhtechian.

Find these mineral, paraben and colorant-free Cetaphil products for about  $5-$15 at drugstores.
