Sun-damage, do we need to wear sunblock inside?

Most of my patients feel like they aged exponentially in 2020.  They feel obligated to smile with their “eyes” while wearing the mask so people don’t think they are unfriendly or mad.  Lots of Botox this year to fight crows feet.  However, that is not the main reason … most people would never suspect the artificial light in their house or office as a culprit for creating sun-damage.  

People spent an extraordinary amount of time inside, in front of their computers, phones, tablets etc. Women said they haven’t put on makeup in almost a year because they rarely leave the house.  

Blue light, the kind emitted from screens, is a type of high energy visible light, or HEV. While blue light is strongest from environmental sources like the sun, electronic screens can have similar effects.  Blue light can increase signs of aging and sun-damage such as hyperpigmentation, collagen breakdown, redness, inflammation, swelling/edema and oxidative stress in the form of free radicals. Sleep-disrupting qualities from watching TV and using our phones at night results in a lack of sleep which causes hormone fluctuations that can flare skin conditions and can accelerate aging.

Even exposure time as short as an hour can cause oxidative stress in skin cells that leads to aging and sun-damage.  

Blue light used as LED therapy to help decrease inflammation and bacteria in acne is a single wave length.  The blue light that we are exposed to in the environment has a broader spectrum. This full range of high-energy visible light is the cause of accelerated photo-aging and skin concerns.  It is more pronounced in sunlight and fluorescent light than in incandescent light.  However, the brilliant white LED bulbs that are so popular are an increased risk for sun-damage.

While it can feel pointless to put on sunscreen for days spent inside staring at computer screens or scrolling through phones, don’t forget to protect your skin from blue light. 

Sunblock vs Sunscreen – Sunscreen does not protect against the UVC rays that are coming from the blue light devices.  To fully protect yourself, use sunblock specifically formulated to block blue light. Physical blocks with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide help reflect light rays to offer broad protection against UV. The newest sunsblocks protect skin without the heavy, white cast of zinc oxide.  They come with a sheer tint which adds another layer of protection as well as making them more cosmetically appealing.

Why the Network Marketing Industry is Exploding

12243701_843256949127667_125045072_nThe Great American Dream is gone.

Official U.S. government reports point out that more than 3.5 million jobs have been eliminated in the past 10 years. This includes over 2,000 jobs per day last year alone. More frightening; an estimated 55% of all jobs created in the next 10 years will be near minimum wage. Currently, 90% of all the people in North America earn less than $40,000 a year and today’s two-income family are not living as well as their parents did. Network Marketing is an option for them, and can be done part time. 

Check out these economic facts:

At age 50:

-75% of the population has less than $5,000 in the bank for retirement.

At age 65:

-45% of Americans depend on relatives.

-30% depend on charities.

-23% are still working (most can’t afford to quit and work until they are no longer physically capable).

-Only 2% are self-sustaining.

At the current time:

-It is impossible to support a family of two working full time at minimum wage.

-For the first time in history, the current generation is averaging a lower standard of living then their parents.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics also states:

Out of 100 people that start working at the age of 25, by the age of 65:

-1 is wealthy.

-4 have enough money to retire.

-63 depend on social security or charity.

-29 are deceased.

One of the most disheartening statistics is this:

-95% of people, age 65 and over cannot afford to retire and work until they die.

Well isn’t that great news?  There is a solution though.

Network Marketing has created more millionaires than any other business.

Since the beginning of the Network Marketing industry in the 1950’s there has been six recessions in the United States of different degrees. With each recession the Network Marketing industry has experienced significant growth because as the economy goes one direction, Network Marketing goes the opposite. Currently our economy is just coming out or going into another official recessional period, depending upon who you ask. Once again, indicators are showing that the Network Marketing industry is beginning another growth trend here in the United States. Many Network Marketing companies, large and small, have experienced record growth in overall sales and sponsoring in the last year. Furthermore, with the start of the New Year many of those same companies are seeing even greater growth from month to month.

So why does the Network Marketing Industry increase during down economic times?

Simple; because there are more people looking for another stream of income. There are more potential business partners in a recession because of the uncertainty of their current and future financial situation. Many have lost their jobs, had their wages or overtime cut back or simply are concerned that they may be next in line for being laid off or cut back. For those that are financially stable, they are realizing that they may no longer be safe and that additional income wouldn’t be a bad thing.

82 % of women who make over 100K did it through Network Marketing

The Network Marketing Industry gives the average person the ability to create residual income, the king of all income, meaning that it comes in, month after month, for work that one did once in the past. It also provides this opportunity with a much smaller investment than what it would take to build a “brick and mortar” business. There are many that are able to build a large income in the Network Marketing Industry that provides full financial freedom, but for most people, the average bonus check is between $500 and $1,000 per month which equates to supplementary income for mass amounts of people.

Because of this ability to generate extra income for the average person, there will be a rush into this Industry over the next several years. People will need alternatives.

So you can see for yourself, the following are the official Network Marketing statistics in the U.S. that are going on around you (Direct Selling Association & U.S. Census statistics):

-Someone starts a new home business every 10 seconds (U.S.).

-15.8 Million people working from home full-time (U.S.).

-Another 38 million or 12% of the total population working from home part-time (U.S.).

-8,493 new home businesses open every day (U.S.).

-Increasing by over 600,000 people per year (U.S.).

-82% of distributors are female and 18% are male (U.S.).

-By 2015, it is estimated that 50% of homes will be involved in the MLM Industry (U.S.).

-$28.56 billion in Direct Sales (Network Marketing) in 2010 (U.S.).

-23% of all Network Marketing sales are related to the Wellness Industry (U.S.).

-Average work from home income $59,250 per year (U.S.).

-20% of home based entrepreneurs said that their business grossed between $100,000 and $500,000 last year (U.S.).

-Home based business wage earner’s success rate is over 85% compared with small businesses like retail shops and restaurants, at about 95% failure rate after 5 years.

-84% recommend working from home to others (U.S.).

-29% work at home with other family members (U.S.).

If you thought the United States Network Marketing statistics were good, the World-wide Network Marketing statistics are even more explosive!

So now that your curiosity is peeked, how do you choose from the vast sea of choices?   You choose one that is unique, that offers something that the others don’t.   A company that has merged a software company with a nutraceutical company that has an innovative marketing strategy.  You run your business off of an app on your smart phone. By merging online marketing with Network Marketing they have automated the recruiting process, making it much simpler to find people that want to create an additional stream of income.  Because of this platform, you don’t have to talk to anyone that doesn’t want to talk to you first.

The other unique fact is it’s a 7 year old multi million dollar company, debt free, with a ground floor opportunity of only 5% of their sales coming out of the USA.  It is part of the two largest growing industries; health and wellness and anti-aging.
