Why Antioxidants are a summer must!

Skin Care Products in Boston, MA

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!
