Beat The Burn: 5 Tips To Save Your Skin This Memorial Day Weekend

With temperatures expected to reach their highest yet this Memorial Day weekend, you may have plans to soak up the sun. So StyleList tapped Dr. Robin Schaffran, board-certified dermatologist and creator of Dr. Robin for Kids sunscreen, for five simple tips to help you beat the burn.

1. Apply sunscreen liberally 20 minutes before sun exposure. Most people use too little. In fact, according to a study published in the Archives of Dermatology, sunscreen users only apply 50 percent of the recommended amount so they are only receiving 50 percent of the SPF protection. An average adult in a bathing suit requires one ounce (equivalent to two tablespoons or shot glass full) of sunscreen to cover the entire body. For small children, one tablespoon should be used on the entire body. Read more… Keep reading »

12 Dumb Celebrities Working On Their Melanoma

There are many everyday rules that don’t apply to celebrities. They get a pass where us normal people have to do things like wash our own dishes and not get escorted around in Escalades and eat fancy dinners for free. They take calls all day long at the beach or pool and look so good while they’re doing it.

Oh, those darned celebrities, they really burn us up!

Speaking of burning up, the one thing celebs can’t avoid is dangerous exposure to the sun. They are normal just like the rest of us when they forget to protect their precious Hollywood skin and turn into lobsters. Here’s a gallery of 12 Dumb Celebrities Working On Their Melanoma that should remind you to apply your sun block 20 minutes before jumping into the water. Keep reading »

Beach Bum Shows Off Their Lindsay Lohan Love

If you happen to be in New York City today and pass by the Beach Bum Tanning Salon at 239 7th Avenue, take note of their interesting bright orange accessory. The fake bake salon is showing their support and devotion for Lindsay Lohan — a valued longtime customer — by staging a protest and wrapping the store in an orange ribbon to speak out against her jail time. In addition to the solidarity ribbon, employees created homemade signs that read, “We love you Lindsay! Come home soon” to picket with during their “Free Lindsay” rally. Clearly, the business is missing her unwavering support (ahem, money) and those regular visits needed to keep up her perfect orange glow. But interestingly, she’s not the first starlet to gain support from Beach Bum during her time in lock-up, as Paris Hilton was the subject of the salon’s protest back in 2007. Poor Beach Bum. They’ve been the subject of two injustices this year: dealing with the tanning tax and losing out on two weeks of Lindsay’s visits.

The Tanning Tax And 5 More Reasons You Shouldn’t Be Fake Baking

The new tanning tax goes into effect today. And if you are upset about it, you shouldn’t be. Sure, it adds 10 percent to the cost of most fake bakes, but tanning is seriously bad for you anyway. If you absolutely can’t part with your brown summer hue, you can always go outside—because that is free. Or, you can spritz on some of that spray stuff for a nice glow. Alternatively, take a good, hard look at Lindsay Lohan and Snooki and think about whether you really are interested in getting that “weathered” look.

If the increased cost isn’t enough to dissuade you, here are you a few more reasons why you should steer clear of tanning beds. Keep reading »

Snooki Shows Off Her Sun Love

Really, it was only a matter of time before one of the cast members of “Jersey Shore” scored a tanning deal of some sort. With their penchant for GTL — emphasis on the T — and the brand-new tanning tax, the guidos and guidettes need a new way to keep up their perfect orange glow. The first to not only find a solution to her tanning problems, but also cash in on her addiction is Snooki, who fell in love with Sunlove‘s spray tanner. Obviously, the company jumped at the opportunity to have her “celebrity” face repping their brand, realizing the power behind her deep tan and diminutive stature. Now she’s displaying her cancer-free bronzed glow as the company’s little spokeswoman, touting its streak-free look and golden hue. If you want it, you’d better buy it now, before it sells out at the shore. [Beauty Blogging Junkie] Keep reading »
