Pucker Up, Buttercup


The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but your lips let people know how you really feel. A smile and a laugh invite warm conversation, whereas a sharp frown lets people know it’s not a good time to chat. Your lips do a lot of work, so make sure you’re taking care of them! Here are three rules to follow when it comes to maintaining good lip health.

while it’s fun when your lips taste like cherry, stay away from flavored balms. These can actually lead to chapped lips.

2. MAKE TIME TO EXFOLIATE. You know how your shower loofah sloughs away dead skin cells, keeping your skin soft and healthy? Your lips are also covered in dead skin cells that need to be gently removed. Don’t worry, you don’t have to buy a tiny loofah. Instead, whip up a DIY scrub to exfoliate your lips. Just mix 1 part honey with 2 parts sugar. Once a week, massage the scrub gently into your lips, let sit for 10 minutes, then remove with a gentle face wash. Regular exfoliation keeps your lips soft and smooth. 3. DON’T FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN. Research from George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., found that the No. 1 area people forget to apply sunscreen is the lips. We tend to forget that our lips are part of our skin, which is troubling because skin cancer around the lips can be very dangerous. If you’re going outside, be sure to protect your lips with lip balm containing SPF protection of 30 or higher.


Lip balm is a must, and not just for soothing chapped lips. Ensuring your lips stay moisturized will keep them healthy and prevent chapped, split lips. But before you apply the lip balm that’s been collecting dust on your dresser, check the ingredients. A good balm will have a base of beeswax, paraffin, and/or petroleum jelly. These lock in moisture and don’t evaporate as quickly. When shopping for lip balm, avoid harmful ingredients. Salicylic acid, menthol, camphor, and silicone can dry out your lips, and


Spring is in full swing here in Pennsylvania, which means it’s time to shed those winter layers and get out in the sun. Whether you’re just planning on working on your tan in the backyard or spending a day out at the lake, we at Cool Renew MedSpa want you to feel like your best self. That’s why when it comes to laser hair removal in the underarm areas, bikini area, or anywhere else, we’ve got the treatment to beat all others. Having to shave your arms or legs again and again can be tedious and repetitive. Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to worry about that ever again? You could endure the standard laser hair removal process, but that comes with its own set of problems — primarily that it feels like you’re being flicked with rubber bands repeatedly all over the targeted area. With that in mind, we’ve invested in the best laser hair removal technology on the market: the LightSheer system from Lumenis.

anything else you’ll find on the market is the

high-speed vacuum used on larger treatment areas and the ChillTip cooling mechanism used on smaller areas. At the same time, we

can customize the treatment to better accommodate your hair and skin type. That means, no matter what, you’ll get the best treatment for you!

This is a treatment both men and women can enjoy. Over the course of 5–8 treatments, the skilled care providers at Cool Renew MedSpa can use the LightSheer system to painlessly remove hair from any problem areas on your body. If you want to go into this summer feeling fresh, give us a call at (814) 347-8314 to schedule your appointment today!
