LADY LAKE —The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension in Lake County presents “Nourish Your Skin,” a free class offered on July 27 from 1- 2:30 p.m. at Lady Lake Public Library, 225 W. Guava Street, Lady Lake.
The program will discuss keeping skin healthy from the inside out. Topics include proper nutrition, environmental influences, staying hydrated, choosing sunscreens and skin cancer self-checks.
“Skin is our largest organ and serves as a protective barrier to help prevent harmful substances from entering the body,” said Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent Julie England, who will be leading the program. “There is more to taking care of your skin than just sun protection, and participants of this class will learn ways to keep their skin looking and feeling its best by taking care of it from the inside, as well as protecting it from environmental factors.”
