Summer is a prime time when skin can easily be damaged causing fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation to surface. This is mostly due to the increased amount of sun exposure. We want you to have a safe, sun-damage free summer and have outlined our top skincare tips to consider before heading outdoors!
Apply SPF Religiously
Right when you wake up apply SPF 30+. Then when you are outside, reapply every one to two hours. Pay close attention to the eye area. Skin is very thin in this area causing collagen and elastin to breakdown and SPF, a pair of shades can offer added protection from the sun.
Practice Sun Safety
Getting Vitamin D is healthy, but the sun is incredibly harmful causing skin cancer and sun damage. Skin cancer is serious and sun damage leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation. I won’t tell you to refrain from the sun, but be smart while you are in the sun. A hat, sunglasses and sun umbrella are non-negotiable.
Make your Skincare Routine a Priority
A Vitamin C Serum, like our Ultimate Antioxidant C Boost Serum, should be applied immediately after you cleanse the skin. L-Ascorbic Acid is the active form of Vitamin C and protects against free radicals and the sun. It is an added boost to your SPF protection.
Maintain your anti-aging treatment plan with sun safe treatment
Hold off on IPL and Laser treatments during the summer months as the sun can have adverse effects on skin when receiving light-based therapies. As an alternative, opt for treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma Injections, and lighter peels like our No Peel Peel which will keep skin looking healthy and refreshed.
Overall, be safe, have fun this summer, and schedule your appointment at The Clinic to learn how to maintain your beautiful skin this summer.
