Let’s be honest, summer was a lot of fun! But, all the time you spent in the sun caused some skin damage you didn’t anticipate. We’re challenging you to fight back against your summer skin damage and give your complexion a brand new makeover for the upcoming seasons. Here are our top five ways to reverse your summer skin damage so you can reveal a beautiful, glowing complexion this fall!

1. Update Your Skincare Routine

Healthy-looking skin starts off with being exactly that – healthy. When it comes to treating your skin right, we encourage you to consider medical-grade skincare products. Unlike over-the-counter skincare products you may find at the drug store, medical-grade skincare products are made with the highest-quality ingredients to ensure your skin is getting the nourishment it needs at a molecular level. What makes medical-grade skincare even better is that it’s safe and effective for even the most sensitive skin! 

2. Invest in Laser Resurfacing Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing treatments are a great minimally-invasive way for you to get rid of your summer skin damage. Laser resurfacing treatments treat the outermost layers of skin by targeting the deeper layers of damage under the surface. If you’re thinking laser resurfacing treatments may be a little too extreme for you, consider an IPL Photofacial instead! This light therapy addresses age spots and hyperpigmentation without the downtime and recovery needed with traditional laser treatments.

3. Peel it Off with a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are a quick and easy way to exfoliate the outermost layers of your skin for a fully resurfaced and glowing complexion. Chemical peels work to slough off the surface of the skin, so you can reveal the bright and healthy new layer of skin underneath. Our light and medium-depth chemical peels are perfect for a short recovery period and dramatic results.

4. Exfoliate Damage Away with Microdermabrasion

Is your at-home skin scrub not doing enough for you? Consider a microdermabrasion treatment. This non-invasive medspa treatment uses abrasive crystals to smooth away imperfections in the skin and exfoliate your treated areas. Patients typically use microdermabrasion to treat their fine lines, enlarged pores, sun damage and uneven skin tone. With no downtime or recovery period, you’ll be glad you got one.

5. Nourish Your Body with Vitamins B and D

One of the easiest and best ways you can revitalize your skin is by nourishing your body from the inside-out. Making sure you take in the right vitamins and minerals can make all the difference in your skin. Remember to drink plenty of water and get in your vitamins B and D. You can find vitamin B in foods like carrots, yellow peppers and oranges, and vitamin D in foods like eggs, fish and cheese.

Summer must haves to keep your skin safe, healthy and radiant are our SkinCeuticals Antioxidants and Sunscreen. Changing out your skin care routine is crucial to making sure we are giving our skin everything it needs to keep it balanced. It is time to say GOOD BYE to heavy creams and retinols and HELLO to SPF & Antioxidant Serums!

We can’t always see the sun in New England but it is always there! We need to be making sure that we are doing everything for our skin that is going to help us looking young, bright and wrinkle free. The sun is the number one cause of denaturing collagen and two steps I recommend most to my patients are SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic or Phloretin C F antioxidant serums and always SkinCeuticals SPF 50 (tinted or non tinted)

Enjoy our beautiful sunny days of summer all season long without sunburns and sunspots. Using an antioxidant under your sunscreen is important because it will amplify your sunscreens ability to protect your skin. Creating a barrier around the skin cells that eats up the free radicals that harm the skin. I personally recommend these antioxidant serums because it is going to advance environmental protection against free radicals that will damage the skin induced by UVA, UVB & infrared radiation.

The next step is ALWAYS important 100% important whether it be spring, summer, fall or winter. Like I said, because we can’t see the sun does not mean that it isn’t there! Make sure you are always wearing a sunscreen with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Using an SPF every day will help to protect your skin from sun damage, discoloration in the skin & early signs of aging. 90% of visible aging comes from hours spent in the sun. Spare your skin tomorrow, wear your sunscreen today!
