Summer’s on its way. Is your skin ready? During the summer women tend to scale back on their makeup and enjoy their natural beauty, but for those of us with problem skin, the thought of going au naturel can be stressful. Summer also means more time in the sun which brings its own unique concerns for your skin. How can you keep your skin healthy and gorgeous this summer? Come on in and see us for personalized advice (and maybe a laser treatment) and keep reading for a few essential summer skincare tips.
Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen
Are you stocked up on sunscreen? Regular sunscreen use is important year round, but summer’s an excellent time to recommit yourself to better practices if you’re falling short. Dr. Chang recommends wearing sunscreen daily (at least SPF 15). Most people don’t wear enough sunscreen; in order to work effectively you need at least a nickel sized dollop for your face alone and about a shot glass worth for your body. Reapply often when you’re spending time lounging by the pool.
Smooth and Perfect
Wrinkles and acne scars really show up without makeup. Summer is a great time to address these problems so you can enjoy smoother, more beautiful skin. Dermal fillers are an easy, non-surgical tool to instantly enhance the face. We offer a variety of fillers to address your specific skin concerns. Bellafill is a great choice if you have acne scars. Try Juvederm Voluma for a subtle lift in the middle face. Juvederm can instantly perk up your lips or even out wrinkles around the face.
Many dermal fillers work instantly so you won’t have to wait months to enjoy the results. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and you can head right back to life after treatment with no downtime. You may have a bit of redness or swelling, but this can be covered with makeup and typically fades quickly.
Improve the Quality of Your Products
Do you wish you could improve the quality of your skin without having to change your routine? One simple way to make your skin look and feel better is to change the products you use. High quality skin care products, like the ZO line offered at Beatitude, can really make a difference in your skin. You’ll do the same things you already do (cleanse, tone, moisturize, etc.), but will see clinical level results. You don’t have to complicate your skincare regimen to see better results; just change the products that you’re using.
Is your skin ready for summer? If not, head on in to Beatitude and make a few changes. You can enjoy gorgeous skin this summer and beyond.
