By Dee Dee Jarvis, MedCOSMETIC™ –
With our mild winter now coming to an end and the sun finally starting to shine again, it’s time
to start thinking about what you can do to prepare your skin for summer. Over winter, your skin has to endure harsh conditions, like cold and dryness, which can lead to premature aging. Taking steps to prepare your skin for summer can help prevent more serious damage in response to the summer sun and keep it looking healthy and radiant.
The Importance of Exfoliation
One of the most commonly overlooked aspects of skin care is exfoliation. Although it must not be performed excessively, exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, making your own skin look and feel healthier. Once you have properly exfoliated your skin (2-3 times a week), this will now allow your skin care products to work more efficiently by being able to penetrate deeper into the skin now that all of the dry dead skin cells have been removed. Consult with a MedCOSMETIC™ Aesthetician to properly choose the appropriate exfoliant for your skin type.
Exposing Skin to the Sun
Slowly For those who know me, this is a very hot topic for me (no pun intended)! If I lived in a perfect world, everyone would have beautiful ivory skin all year long. Did you know that 80% of skin aging comes from the sun? Now having said that, I know most of us love to be out in the sun and this is not possible. So, with that being said, if you must tan, let’s do it in the best possible way we can. The goal is to avoid pale winter skin from being suddenly damaged the first time you spend all day in the sun. Start with a sunscreen with a spf of 25 or higher and uva/uvb protection. Limit sun exposure to 2-3 hours while reapplying your sunscreen every 1 1/2 to 2 hours (this is key)!
Hydration for Healing and Rejuvenation
Remember that hydration is the most vital component to your skin care regimen, not only for healing and rejuvenation, but also for preventing later damage when it is exposed to sun and dry conditions. Taking steps now to help prepare your skin for summer and maintaining it properly are the best ways to have radiant, healthy skin.
Laser Treatments Remove Sun and Age Spots
One last thing that can keep us out of our swimsuits and covered up are age spots and sun spots. Remember these spots can easily be removed with a few “no downtime” affordable laser treatments at MedCOSMETIC™. Think of it as “photoshopping” your body!
