Top 5 Sun Smart Tips for the Summer

We all know Arizona summers can be extremely hot and extended exposure to the sun can be damaging to our bodies. Anyone who has ever endured an Arizona sunburn in triple digit weather, understands how painful and dangerous this can be! More than 1 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year in the United States. The good news is that skin cancer can be prevented. Check out these top 5 sun smart tips for the summer to keep you and your family protected.

1.) Limit direct sun exposure during midday - UV rays are most intense during the 10am to 4pm hours. You should plan your outdoor activities before or after these hours.

2.) Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps - Tanning gives our UVA and frequently UVB rays which can cause serious long-term skin damage and both contribute to skin cancer.

3.) Ware shades and a hat - You should purchase sunglasses with at least a 99% UV absorption. And why not invest in a fun summer hat while you are at it!

4.) Use sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher - The SPF number represents the level of protection against UVB rays, which are the type of rays responsible for the majority of skin cancers. A higher number means more protection. You should apply generous amounts of sunblock every 2 hours if you are out in the direct sun for a long period of time.

5.) Check your skin - Check your own skin for unusual changes, new growths or changes in skin color. If you notice any moles that have changed size, shape or color, contact your doctor right away. Skin cancer is most easily treated if found early.

Please share these top 5 sun smart tips for the summer to help have a safe and enjoyable season. And If you or someone you know is looking to buy a home this summer, please contact Lisa Bray today!

3 Wonderful Ways to Give Back to Your Mom

3 Wonderful Ways to Give Back to Your Mom

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and for those of you who are looking for the perfect gift, why not go the unconventional route this year by helping repair and improve her home? Here are 3 wonderful ways you can give back to your mom and her home for Mother’s Day.

1.) Plant a Garden: Rather than give the typical bouquet of flowers, plant her a garden she can fall in love with. You can plant a nice assortment of flowers in decorative containers and pots for the entry way or line the driveway and walkways with rows of budding beauties.

2.) Add some art: Has mom been complaining about her drab walls for years? You can’t go wrong with art, especially if it’s family pictures. Pick up some nice frames or some fun vintage style ones from a thrift store and add your best captured family memories. Bonus points if you hang them for her.

3.) Update the comfort zones: Update a living room with lovely accent pillows or a nice new slipcover for the sofa, or go above and beyond and get her a whole new bedding set for her room. Dressing up the spaces she spends the most time in comfort is a wonderfully considerate gift. Imagine her surprise to come home and see a refreshed new space to enjoy?

Can’t decide what to do for your mom and her home? Listen to her concerns about her space. If there’s a nagging home improvement task that’s been bugging her for a while like a broken mailbox, rusty light fixtures, or snags in the rug making those types of repairs are a heartwarming gift to her that shows that you care and that you listen.

No matter what you decide to do for your mom this Mother’s Day, if it comes from the heart she’ll love it regardless. Happy Mother’s Day!
