Could Your Sunscreen Be Doing More Harm Than Good?
'Tis the season to be sunny! Summer is the best time of year to get outside and soak up some rays. Sunshine can lift your spirits, enhance your mood, and help your body produce Vitamin D.
“Village Green is the ‘Mecca’ of the vitamin world, with a tremendous reputation in the community and with physicians,” she says. “It’s not just a store, it’s a service for the community. It fills a need, by someone who cares. We don’t just promote a product for the sake of the sale, but we offer products that help people in their pursuit of health.
“My passion is skin care, and I know quite a bit about certain conditions. I often recommend books by Hauschka and Perricone, and I’m interested in the connection between certain skin care additives (especially Parabens) and cancer. It amazes me how people have to be their own watch dogs in the shopping department.”
Many products on grocery shelves contain harmful ingredients. Phyllis likes to educate customers about these substances and how they react in people’s bodies, as well as share her knowledge about various skin conditions. She is also happy to explain why the products she recommends are so beneficial.
You can visit Phyllis at Village Green Apothecary and benefit from her extensive knowledge of skin care products. She’s just itching to help you today!
