The sun is shining high and temperatures are rising, summer has finally arrived! Our minds may be ready for sandals, shorts, stylish swim wear, and sleeve-less shirts but your skin may still be lacking a summer glow. This summer, don’t let the sunny weather catch you unprepared and show off your Summer Ready Skin.
Humidity and heat are modifying factors for your daily skin regimen. If you use a creamy cleanser, summer is a great time to switch to a foamy face wash that will wash off excess oil, dirt, and sunscreen. Introducing active ingredients such as glycolic acid or polyhydroxy acids as in NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash stimulate cell renewal, give you a gentle exfoliation, and enhance your skin texture.
Using a light daily moisturizer containing SPF of 30 or more will give your skin much needed moisture and combat the drying effects of chlorine, salt water, and tap water. A hydrating serum and a vitamin C lotion like Revision 30% Vitamin C Lotion in combination with a sheer sunscreen may be enough for daily element exposure.
Medical chemical peels are an easy way to rejuvenate, reduce dark spots, promote collagen production, hydrate, and improve the overall look and feel of your skin. At ProDerm Image – Cosmetic Dermatology we offer a variety of medical grade peels: lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acid, or a combination of various chemicals depending on the patient’s individual needs
