Summer Skin Survival

Dos and Dont's from a seasoned pro

By: Dorothy Foltz-Gray

If you have to embark on an 11 mile jungle trek in the dead of summer, it's handy to have a nurse along.  That's what Margaret Bobonich's teammates discovered during 2005's Survivor: Guatemala season, which found the dermatology nurse practitioner tending to dehydration, torn muscles and a poisonous barbed plant injury after her team won the grueling first challenge.

Ousted halfway through her season, Bobonich returns to Guatemala annually with nonprofit Refuge International and practices full-time at Cleveland's University Hospital, Case Medical Center.

You may not (hopefully) be lost in the wild this summer, but you should still protect your skin with Bobonich's tips. 

  • Do wear a hat and SPF 30 outdoors, and reapply every two hours.
  • Don't spend more than four hours in direct sun, even if you're protected.  Break it up with some shade time.  "The sun plays a big part in breaking down skin so that you get more wrinkles and dark spots," Bobonich says.
  • Don't use soap - especially the antibacterial kind - on your face and body.  Opt for a gentle cleanser. 
  • Do take cooler, shorter showers to help keep skin hydrated.
  • Do use petroleum jelly for wound and burn care.  "Hydrated wounds heal faster and better, and the jelly also prevents scarring," she says.  It's also a great, non-allergenic moisturizer.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Geo Thermal Heating and Cooling - Standard feature at Bailey Park 55+ Community in Benton, PA

Using geothermal heating and cooling is a great way to lower your home's operating costs and lessen your impact on the environment.  Geothermal systems leverage the fact that below about 10 feet, the Earth's temperature remains fairly constant from season to season, at about 50-56 F.  A reservoir of water in your geothermal well is used to help heat your home in the winter, and cool your home in the summer.  This simple system can save you 30-70% in heating costs and 20-50% in cooling costs.

You can also claim a tax credit for 30% of the cost of your geothermal heat pump.  Click here to read more about this federal tax incentive.

 Best of all, a geothermal heating and cooling system comes standard in all homes at Bailey Park.  That's just one of the reasons living at Bailey Park 55+ Community really is "A Wonderful Life".
