Summer is coming back with a bang! We can’t wait to break out of our winter scarves and coats, to let the Sun kiss our skin again. A potential problem though is that human skin is very sensitive, and the blazing summer Sun can make the matters worse. Skin plays a very important role in our body, personality and beauty, so it makes sense that we do what we can to avoid potential skin issues before they occur.

If we take care of some essentials, then we can achieve a glowing and shiny skin perfectly suited to the summer Sun. A radiant skin increases our outward beauty and who doesn’t want to look beautiful. Follow these tips to preserve yourself from the damaging effects of the Sun whilst getting a lustrous skin that you will love.

Tip 1: Chemical Peeling

The chemical peel is also known as chemexfoliation and it can be considered as one of the best ways to achieve glowing skin. The method is simply to use a chemical to hasten skin exfoliation while stimulating new skin generation and restoration. This newly restored skin will appear even in skin tone and with minimal wrinkles.

Doctors Note: It is essential to take care of your new skin as it will be temporarily sensitive and Sun sensitive.

Chemical peels are normally conducted on the face, neck or hands. This method will reduce both fine lines and deeper wrinkles caused by Sun damage or aging.
We also use chemical peels to treat dark pigmentation spots, acne and acne scars when appropriate. This 1st tip will create that glowing skin you are dreaming of, but it would better to complete your chemical treatments before the height of summer simply due to skin sensitivity.

Tip 2: Hyaluronic acid skin rejuvenation

You might have come across hyaluronic acid in the beauty world as it plays a vital role rejuvenating and hydrating the skin.

In this treatment, minute amounts of hyaluronic acid are injected into the skin with multiple injections, to raise the skin’s hyaluronic acid content. Creating a bank of HA within the skin is not dissimilar to taking a spare water bottle on a hike. It acts as a hydro-reserve within the skin allowing the skin to function optimally. This means elastic, fresh and vibrant skin that is associated with youth.

A HA Skin Rejuvenation treatments takes roughly 60 minutes to complete, downtime is minimal and the results will last the entire summer. This is the perfect all natural treatment and every single client gains immediate benefit from undergoing the treatment.

Doctors Note: ensure that you use daily Sunblock to minimize skin dehydration from the Sun, and don’t forget to reapply.

Tip 3: Exfoliating cleanser

To give your skin a youthful appearance, it is very important to cleanse daily and pamper it regularly. Exfoliating your skin will improve your complexion by naturally removing the dead skin cells. This is the best way to get the glowing skin this summer as it cleanses deeply and clear pores whilst giving rejuvenating results to your skin. Exfoliation is the method of eliminating the top layer of dead, epidermal skin cells that dull the external surface of the skin to expose a fresh and bright skin.

Doctors Note: There are physical and chemical exfoliation cleanser products on the market. Make an appointment to discus what would world best for your skin, and on your holidays.

Tip 4: Daily Moisturiser with Sunblock

Moisturising your face is one way to look and feel younger as daily moisturiser application will keep your skin soft, supple and hydrated. It is often a good idea to apply moisturiser twice a day.
The ideal time to moisturise is after the shower as your skin will be moist which will help in the absorption of the lotion. Before applying the moisturiser, cleanse your face thoroughly then apply gently using a circular motion. This application method will help the moisturiser reach the pores and repair underlying skin issues. By using the right moisturiser and using it daily, you will see great benefits over time.
Doctors Note: To achieve better results, use a moisturiser that is specifically made for the face, containing Sunblock protection up to SPF 15 or higher.

Today there are numerous products on the market that offer active ingredients including retinol and Hyaluronic Acid. It is my best advice to use the most researched product available to your budget. Make an appointment to discuss your homecare regime.
