Spring has sprung and summer is almost here! This is a wonderful time of year here on the gulf coast, full of fun and exciting activities. From boating to beaching everyone will be spending lots of time outside creating lasting memories. One memory no one wants to create is the dreaded sun burn and later, the visible sun damage, wrinkling, and brown discoloration that will be left behind. There are several ways to protect your skin in order to have a beautiful complexion and healthy glow all year round. Kick-start your skin care regimen and get prepared for summer!
The most important product to have and use all year is sunscreen. This is by far the most vital component of any successful skin care regimen. Sunscreen should contain zinc and have an SPF number of 30 or higher. It is important to reapply sunscreen throughout the day, especially when spending long hours outdoors, swimming, or sweating. Our Clear Medspa carries a variety of sunscreens, including creams, sprays and powder. We even have sunscreen designed specifically for people with sensitive skin. It is also important to wear protective clothing when outdoors. Wide brim hats, long sleeve shirts, and sunglasses are an easy, convenient way to cover and protect your skin.
Another great product to add to your regimen is a topical lightener to help prevent and fade brown pigment or discoloration. SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 and Obagi Clear are great options and will result in a brighter and more even skin tone.
Lastly, consider scheduling a facial to help exfoliate and hydrate your sun-drenched skin. A Hydrafacial is a treatment that infuses long-lasting serums to leave your skin hydrated, refreshed, and glowing. You can repeat the Hydrafacial every 4 weeks and with regular treatments, you will see improvement in fine lines, brown spots, acne, and pore size. There is no downtime and no need for sun avoidance making this an ideal treatment for summer!
Make this summer an unforgettable one, but not at the cost of your skin. Call today or stop by our Clear Medspa for a complimentary skin care consultation.
