Californians enjoy sunshine and moderate temperatures much of the year, but in the summer, that glorious weather simply multiplies. Most of us head to the beach or backyard pool to enjoy time under the sun with friends. While you are enjoying the many outdoor amenities of the season, give your skin a little extra TLC to ensure the summer elements do not take their toll on your appearance.
Warm temperatures can cause us to lose vital body fluids, which can lead to dehydration and dry, lifeless skin. Make sure your skin remains soft and supple throughout the season, by attacking the dryness problem on two different fronts. First, make sure you are drinking enough water daily to keep your entire body well hydrated. Second, incorporate a moisturizer into your daily beauty routine that has important hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid to lock moisture into the skin.
Exfoliation removes dead, dry skin cells on the skin’s surface that can dull your complexion. Exfoliation is a relatively simple process to perform at home, using skin care products specifically designed for this purpose. In addition to shedding lifeless outer skin cells, you will also effectively remove any sun damage on the surface of the skin that managed to make an appearance despite your best efforts. If more exfoliation is needed than your home regimen can handle, professional treatments are also available.
Protection is probably the most important step you can take for your skin throughout the summer months. A high quality sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 is a daily must this time of year. At Incredible Veins Skin & Body, we recommend professional products, like those offered by Epionce, to ensure the best protection. Apply sunscreen liberally and repeatedly throughout the day, particularly if you are going to be spending a significant amount of time outdoors.
Despite our best efforts, sun damage can sometimes occur. When it does, whether it is recent damage or harm from years ago, there are professional products and treatments that can help reverse the damage and rejuvenate your complexion. The professional team at Incredible Veins Skin & Body offers a number of effective skin rejuvenation treatments, which can be performed any time of year.
Summer is a favorite season for most Californians, with plenty of activities to enjoy in the beautiful natural environment of our state. Make sure your skin survives the season without damage by following these easy steps.
