The heat you are feeling is from infrared photons. The type of photons that damages skin is mainly ultraviolet photons, which are much higher in energy than that of IR photons. Your skin may become pink from the heat but actual damage is unlikely at such lower energy for IR photons. In other words, you are not going to get a suntan. dont worry about it.

Are tanning beds bad for your skin? I have heard about the cancer fears but what about premature aging etc?

Ultra violet radiation (from either the sun or from tanning beds) can cause skin cell damage. That damage can lead to premature aging such as; wrinkles, brown spots, lax skin etc. Tanning salons may tell you otherwise but tanning beds really can mess up your skin.

Can eyes be damaged by over exposure to sun UV rays?

: Yes. People are very aware of the danger of UV rays on our skin etc but not everyone realizes that our eyes are also at risk. If your eyes are overexposed to sun rays, you might get a condition called photokeratitis. It's a bit like sunburn of the eye and can cause:

- Red eyes

- Gritty feeling in the eyes

- Extreme sensitivity to light

- Rarely - long term damage

I have using eterna 27 since I was 19 years old and am now 45, in the last year using the night creme I am waking up with my face bright red like a chemical burn. I stopped using it for a while and then...

hormones change as you get older and also your skin can become sensitized (particularly due to sundamage, collagen breakdown, skin thinning etc.) I would say stop using the product as irritating your skin further will cause more damage. Start taking vitamins such as vitamin C, Omega 3 and a multivitamin (also go to and find 'skin vitality collagen support' or 'skin defense' they have a whole range of vitamins that support the skin). You can also start using a facial oil such as la sultan **** pear oil which will help to heal your skin as well. I hope this helps.

Hi Today I started using the Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense for Face SPF 50 face on my nose and around my mouth area is burning and feeling sensitive...I work under intense Florescent...

Hello Dear
Stop Stop using that cream. Your skin is getting sensitive and if you do not stop using it it will cause rashes and red lines on your face. The product doesnot suits you.
Wash your face and do icing for ten mins.
hope it will work

Do I need to use an eye cream? Can my facial moisturizer work under and around my eyes just as well?

All Hormeta moisturizers can be used around the eyes. However, the skin around the eye area is a lot different than the rest of the face. There are no oil glands there, so skin tends to get dry and wrinkled. Also, the skin of the eye area is much thinner and can't absorb heavier products. A separate eye cream should be used to solve specific problems around the eye such as fine lines and dark circles.

Why is it important to wear sunglasses?

Here are five reasons you should absolutely wear sunglasses:1.Avoiding sunburn. It is possible to sunburn your eyes, resulting in redness, irritation, and a gritty feeling similar to sand in the eyes. Ouch!
2.Maintaining long-term eye health. Overexposure to UV rays can lead to cataracts and glaucoma. Choose sunglasses that screen out 75 to 90 percent of light and block at least 95 percent of UVA and 99 percent UVB radiation. Wearing a hat doesn't hurt either.
For three more reasons to get shady, read more.

3.Preventing wrinkles. Sunglasses keep you from squinting, and squinting can increase the wrinkles around your eyes .
4.Avoiding skin cancer. Sunglasses shield you from potential skin cancer of the eyelids. Just remember, the sun is even stronger in early morning and late afternoon.
5.Looking cool. Do you really need another reason?
