Sun Lovers: Big River Silk Skincare Has You Covered

Maybe you like to swim, to surf, to jog, to golf, or to run? Maybe you like to be outdoors, or you’re a sun lover?

Exposure to Ultraviolet light from the sun (and from tanning bulbs) is unfortunately the most important factor in skin aging, promoting splotchiness of skin color and early wrinkling.

Fortunately, Dermatologists have found that Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) compounds improve skin texture and tone, acting as anti-wrinkle creams. Glycolic Acid is one such AHA, originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple.

After 25 years of practicing Dermatology, in 2016 I became President of Big River Silk Skincare Inc., to manufacture and distribute 3 Glycolic Acid-containing anti-wrinkle and skin-smoothing moisturizers:

GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream: 1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $179.95.

GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength: 1 oz: $19.95/2 oz: $29.95/8 oz: $139.95.

GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream/High Strength:1 oz: $29.95/2 oz: $44.95/8 oz: $144.95.

Big River Silk Skincare also provides useful cleanser for people who’ve been active outside: AmberSoy™ Soap Gel. AmberSoy can be used as a simple gel cleanser or as a face mask, leaving it on for 3-10 minutes, before rinsing off, for a really deep clean. AmberSoy is helpful for people with oily or combination skin and complexion issues. Available in Lemon, Mint, and No Fragrance Added (1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $59.95).

If you love being outside, a couple of tips to avoid premature aging: plan your vacation activities towards the beginning or end of the day, wear a hat, sun-protective clothing and sunglasses.

And if you love outdoors activities, you need an effective sunscreen: “broad spectrum” and rated SPF 35 or higher. Sunscreens are now available as creams, lotions, gels, and sprays, making greasiness less common. For best results, apply that sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going out. Reapply every 90 minutes when out. And it takes 2 ounces for your entire body.

A personal favorite among sunsceens is Vanicream™ Sunscreen Sport SPF 35, now available at (4 oz: $17.95).

At Big River Silk Skincare, for convenience we also offer “skincare kits,” combining GlycoShea Cream with either Ambersoy Soap Gel or a gentle cleanser called Vanicream Bar Soap, for people with dry skin. Check us out at
