As the weather gets warmer, we are venturing into the sun (safely), finding more to do outdoors and looking forward to summer vacation and trips. Now more than ever, it is important to continue your DAILY use of a broad-spectrum suncreen, antioxidants, lightnening ingredients, and if you are acne-prone, antibacterial ingredients to maintain a healthy, even complexion.
When you travel remember to decant your skin care products into more portable, TSA-compliant sizes. Many of the clinical skin care formulations you use are available in 2 week trial sizes that you can place in your carry-on.
Many of the common skin conditions will worsen as the temperatures rise. Summer is the season for “problem skin”, whether you have acne, hyperpigmentation or rosacea. Heat, UV exposure and humidity conspire to stimulate breakouts, flare rosacea and worsen skin discoloration/melasma. Heat, humidity and inflammation due to UV exposure lead to a dehydrated skin surface, which traps oil and bacteria. These three factors also increases salt-containing perspiration which acts as an irritant that can worsen breakouts.
As with your hair, nail and dental care, it is important to continue daily skin care and go in for your maintenance appointments with your skin care specialist regularly to keep your skin healthy and problem free through the summer season.
SkinMD has highly effective, results-oriented, summer friendly skin treatments that address break-out prone skin, dull, impacted skin as well as hyperpigmentation and visible signs of aging. SkinMD summer treatments provide our patients with improved skin tone and texture, with little to no visible post-procedure exfoliation.
