30 Sep Peel Away Summertime Skin Damage!
Say goodbye to dry spotted skin and hello to brighter smoother skin!
With warm, longer summer weather and outdoor activities comes the possibility of more sun damage. Did you wear your Mineral Perfection SPF 30 sunscreen everyday? How about staying out of the sun during peak hours 10am – 4pm? If not, you may have gotten some skin damage the past few months. Some hard evidence may include new freckles, sun spots and a darker skin tone. There is also a chance for fine lines and thickening of the skin, especially if you spent time sunbathing.
First step: Meet with your skin care professional. An occasional check up with your dermatologist is important for maintaining healthy skin. A visit after the hot summer season is especially important, and your doctor can suggest a variety of treatments available to address sun damage.
Second step: Undo the damage. Once you’ve identified
any changes in your skin with your doctor, consider what treatments could help improve your skin. Common summer skin damage includes skin discoloration and fine lines. From home care treatments such as exfoliating or medical office treatments like a chemical peel, there are plenty of options to get your skin looking gorgeous again.
Here are some easy ways to help repair summer skin damage:
- Exfoliate Scrubbing away the old skin is an easy way to get rid of the damaged top layer. Make sure to exfoliate lightly one to two times a week. Be thorough but gentle, as doing this too often or exfoliating too harshly could harm your skin.
- Mask Treatments: Using moisturizers may help your skin on the outside, but to get deep within skin, try a good quality facial mask. Hydrated skin is essential for a youthful complexion.
- Diet: Because your skin cells renew every 28 days, you have a chance to improve the way your new skin cells are built by supplying them with the proper nutrients. A healthy diet including fresh fruits and vegetables helps feed your cells the vitamins they need. Eat all the veggies on your plate and drink plenty of water to give your skin a boost.
- Chemical exfoliation: Chemical peels are known to address a variety of skin issues. The Perfect Derma Peel is a medium depth peel that reduces hyper pigmentation and sun spots, softens fine lines, evens out skin tone and refines texture for a smoother, more youthful complexion. Peeling occurs for 2-4 days, with results in about one week. This is our premier anti aging product and is the perfect way to peel away the summer damage.
Finally, make sure to adjust your daily skincare routine for the changing weather. We may not get much weather change in Los Angeles, but you may want to pick up a heavier moisturizer to compensate for the dry skin caused by colder, windy weather. Also, evaluate if your makeup products are in need of any adjustments for the season.
