Your skin is your body’s first line of defense, under constant assault from the elements with ultraviolet rays, free-radicals, and pollutants. Isn’t it time you protected it with the appropriate armor? From sunscreen to medspa maintenance treatments, the skin needs all the help it can get! Since May is Skin Cancer Awareness month, it’s the perfect time to share some of our favorite skin care tips for maintaining healthy, vibrant skin all year long:
•Be Vigilant about Sunscreen.
Sometimes spending hours out in the sun is unavoidable. Days at the beach, vacations with family and friends, or hours tending our garden can leave us vulnerable to a bombardment of UV rays. That’s where medical-grade skincare products loaded with SPF come in. Lather them on and reapply frequently to help block damage from harmful UVA and UVB light.
•Hang Out in the Shade.
We know—that’s easier said than done when we live so close to the beach! Vitamin D is important, but your skin only needs a little sun to get enough. About ten minutes in the sun each day should do the trick, depending on your skin tone. For the rest of the time, you can help keep your skin safe by hanging out in the shade and applying an SPF.
•Rejuvenate Your Skin.
We all have days when we forget SPF, resulting in visible sun damage on our skin. Combat that damage with a MicroLaserPeel® or Halo® laser treatment, which can help exfoliate and repair sun-damaged skin for a younger appearance. Regular MicroLaserPeel or Halo treatments can keep your skin healthy and vibrant.
