This is the time for gorgeously healthy summer skin. Many women choose to wear less makeup (after all, it’s more convenient when lounging by the pool) and to let their natural beauty shine through. Although going au naturel has its perks, it also means that every imperfection shows. These tips will help you achieve healthy (and beautiful summer skin) so your skin can go bare with confidence.
Sunscreen: Rain, Shine, Always
Are you wearing sunscreen? You should be. Whatever the weather, whether you’re inside or out, you should wear sunscreen every day. Sunscreen is one of the best things you can do to protect your skin from premature aging. Sun damage leads to brown spots, wrinkles and, of course, skin cancer.
Choose a broad spectrum, SPF 15 or higher sunscreen for daily use and choose a higher SPF on days you’ll be in the sun. If you’re lounging by the pool, reapply often. Getting wet, toweling off and sweating can rub your sunscreen off. Apply more than you think you need; it takes about a nickel-sized dollop for the face alone and a shot glass worth for the body.
Even if you’re naturally blessed with gorgeous skin, everyone needs a pick-me-up once in a while. And if your skin isn’t perfect… well, you need this treatment even more. A skin rejuvenation treatment is a great way to even out skin tone, improve skin texture, and fade brown spots. These procedures are non-surgical, but still yield stunning results. If you want gorgeous summer skin, ask us about skin rejuvenation treatments.
Choose Your Products Wisely
If you’re picking up your skin care products at the grocery store, you might be missing on the skin boosting benefits of prescription grade products. These products are specially formulated to address specific skin concerns. The right products can really make a difference with your skin.
If you have a hard time knowing what products to choose (sensitive skin, combination skin, non-comedogenic… all the terminology can be confusing), ask us. We offer a range of prescription grade products from some of the best skin care lines available. We can recommend products for your specific skin concerns for more beautiful skin this summer and beyond.
After winter, we shed those extra layers and pack the coats away. Why not do the same for your skin? Exfoliation can remove the dead, outer layers of skin to let fresh skin shine through. You can DIY exfoliation at home (choose a gentle product or use a moist washcloth), but the best results come from a profession skin resurfacing treatment. Laser resurfacing can work deeply to fade scars, lighten dark spots, remove spider veins and more.
