New Teen Magazine

While not strictly a "Christian" magazine, there is a new "clean" teen magazine that is "based on Christian principles" and will soon be launching. It's targeted for young men and women ages 13+ (into college years) and I will be contributing a regular column on beauty. Check it out at

Here's what the publication says about itself. "You're at the hottest site for teen entertainment on the Internet. Here, you'll find fiction, poetry, product reviews, articles, and a lot more! Updated a couple times each week, you'll never have to wait long for new content! TeenAge is run by teens for teens."

Natural Skin Cancer Protection has produced an article on Sun Protection and Make Up stating, "Protecting your skin from the sun is one of the most important things you can do to keep your skin looking younger, longer. But it doesn't mean you have to slop heavy, sticky sunscreen on your face every morning. You can get excellent day-to-day sun protection from your cosmetics."

There is a new study out stating that skin cancer is drastically rising for young women. Mineral makeup makeup is formulated to help clear the skin and also contains natural sunscreen to protect us from damaging UV rays. Chemical-Free, broad-spectrum sun protection is found in titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

Years of being exposed even to little amounts of sun can have deadly effects you may not even realize. Walking your dog, driving a car, and sitting in front of a sunny window are all examples of the type of sun exposure that you might not think of protecting yourself against. A person's risk for skin cancer doubles if he or she has had five or more sunburns. One blistering sunburn in childhood more than doubles a person's chances of developing melanoma later in life.
