Hello everyone! My name is Mona Harb and as you can tell by my post count I am new to these forums. I am the owner of Lofty Salon and Wellness Center and I have worked with hair and skin for more than 35 years. I love writing and reading all about skin care, so I am looking forward to becoming part of the community.

Here's an excerpt from an article I wrote on skin care:

As part of owning my salon and wellness center, I have had to learn quite a lot about proper skin care. Summer can be one of the most difficult seasons to maintain healthy skin, especially considering you will probably be outside in hot and intense conditions. Going outside without the proper sunscreen, cremes, and lotions can leave your skin dry, brittle, and worst of all, damaged. Summer is the most common time for skin to get damaged, whether its damage from sunburns or damage from cracking and debris. So keep reading - this lens will provide you with some great tips, tricks, and products, that I have encountered over the years to get you through these hot summer months.
Pretty much, if anyone has any questions about summer skin care or the like, feel free to ask me on this thread. You can check out the rest of the article below:
