Summer sun and temperatures are beloved because they provide you with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors doing the things you love. However, the sun and temperatures come at a price and it is your skin that pays that price. Sun damage can lead to premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, marks, dry skin, and even skin cancer over time. The hottest season of the year requires careful thought for your skin even as you enjoy the heat and freedom of summer. But summer is almost over and you did not take care of you skin as good as you needed to, so now what? Here are 4 tips to get your skin back in shape!
- Exfoliate- By removing dry/dead skin cells, the surface of you face will instantly look healthy and glowing. Exfoliation also helps with many skin problems, and it also increases blood circulation.
- Hydrate- Hydration is an important part of maintaining a healthy and radiant complexion. Well-hydrated skin is plump and firm and feels smooth to the touch, thanks to the lipid-rich outermost layer of the epidermis having enough water to help flush out toxins and carry nutrients to your skin’s cells. A dehydrated complexion loses elasticity, feels rougher and can become flaky, itchy, red or even inflamed.

- Peel those dark spots– Chemical peel treatments are designed to refines, repair and rejuvenate the skin. These peels will drastically improve the skin’s texture, diminish fine lines, improve the skin clarity and enhance the skin’s overall appearance.

- Lift that saggy skin- Due to sun exposure and dehydration of the skin, it can lose elasticity. The sun’s powerful rays damage skin cells which, over time, increase the effects of aging. All that ultraviolet radiation that is soaked up by your skin is also breaking down collagen and elastin, which can lead to saggy skin and wrinkles.
