DO exfoliate gently to decongest and enhance the way your skincare works for you. Summer sun is dehydrating which can actually compromise the way your body is designed to protect you from its damaging rays. The right kind of exfoliation will enhance your skin’s barrier function while also readying it for medical-grade skincare ingredients that keep you well defended.
Hydrate with light moisturizing gels and serums that leave the skin feeling supple, not sticky. Most of us need to rethink our lotions and potions in the summer to avoid feeling like an oil-stick and subsequently becoming congested. Even dry skins that revel in the warm and humid weather may benefit from a lighter formulation. Some of our office favorites are: SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier, SkinMedica HA5 and MDRejuvena Pore Perfecting Complex.
- Apply antioxidant serums daily to protect your skin from the season’s stronger UVA/UVB/Infrared rays and more concentrated air pollution and also nightly to repair and restore while you sleep. Try SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Gel, SkinCeuticals Resveratrol BE, or SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
- Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher every morning and reapply every 2-3 hours during the day into the early evening. Remember your neck, chest, ears, back, shoulders, arms, and legs. If applying SPF to your body daily seems cumbersome, use a moisturizing formula before you get dressed in the morning in place of your regular lotion and be sure to have a travel tube in your purse for when you’re on the go. It’s worth it! We lovePCASkin Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 and Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 50.
Drink plenty of water and eat your fruits and vegetables. Not only is your skin likely to become dehydrated in the sun, but so is the rest of you! Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily and infuse it with lemons, herbs and fruit to activate its potency and absorption. For the best defense, take Heliocare every day.
