Speaking of Solar Defense...May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month

We are all becoming more savvy about sunscreens -- buying good ones and then the importance of using them. Further good news is that so are the skin care product companies. More and more are including protection from BOTH UVA and UVB in their sunscreens! That is a must.

And NOW THIS--Have you heard about the "Smart Booster Technology"?

Smart Boosters are capsules that contain an active complex of those great antioxidants Vitamins C and E. These are vital to protect your skin from the free radical damage that leads to aging factors like wrinkling and collagen destruction.

These capsules are found in the new Dermalogica sunscreens and what makes them so smart is that they preserve the vitamins until the UV rays strike. THEN the booster bursts to activate this maximum solar defense.

Dermalogica is currently the only company that has this state-of-the-art protection. When you thought it couldn't get better, read on. The sunscreen formulations have been customized for your skin type. So you can choose the right one for you whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or even sensitive skin. Amazing. Stop in at Invigorations for your FREE sample.

Here are 10 ways to UPGRADE your MEALS nutritionally IN SECONDS!

1. Add 1-2 T of wheat germ to your cereal, yogurt, or smoothie.
Wheat germ is loaded with minerals, vitamin E, fiber, protein, omega 3, and folate.

2. Sprinkle cinnamon on your cereal, yogurt, bagels, or toast.
Cinnamon health benefits come through its ability to enhance the action of insulin. Boosting insulin activity improves glucose and cholesterol metabolism which can help protect against type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

3. Add broccoli sprouts to your salad and sandwiches.
These have fiber and vitamin C. Regular broccoli is the anti-cancer superstar of foods and the sprouts have even more of the sulphoraphane, the natural cancer-prevention agent.

4. Add sun-dried tomatoes to your pizza, pasta and sandwiches.
Tomatoes are another superstar with fiber, B vitamins, potassium, vitamin C, and lycopene which is well known for prostate cancer protection.

5. Add salsa to your eggs, veggies, pastas, or poultry dishes.
Fresh salsa boosts your intake of lycopene, vitamin C, potassium and fiber. Every ingredient in salsa is healthy!

6. Add turmeric or curry to your bean, poultry, and rice dishes.
Curcumin is the yellow pigment famous for its anti-inflammatory power. Populations with the highest intake of these spices has the lowest rates of Alzheimer's.

7. Go nuts! Throw them into soups, salads, sauces, or prepared dishes.
Nuts have several nutritional benefits, most of which are specific to cardiovascular health. Eating an ounce of nuts 5 days a week can reduce risk of heart disease by 30-55%.

8. Add canned pumpkin to soups, pancakes, muffins, and even corn bread.
Low in calories, high in fiber, and giving the most concentrated cocktail of disease-busting carotenoids known. This is for the health of your heart, eyes, skin and immune system.

9. Add pesto to your sandwiches, sauces, and pastas.
This is 100% pure heart-healthy ingredients—basil, parmesan cheese, pine nuts, garlic and olive oiil.

10. Top it off with berries! (frozen or fresh)
Berries are one of the top ten super foods loaded with fiber, vitamin C, folic acid and super-potent antioxidants.
