The weather in Southern California is great year-round, but the summer season ushers in a wave of barbecues, beach days and other social events that put your skin in the spotlight. SILK, A Medical Spa wants to help you look and feel your best under the summer sun. Here, we offer our best skin care tips for summer.
Sunscreen Is a Non-Negotiable
Approximately 90 percent of all visible age markers are a result of sun damage. Not only can sunscreen minimize the chance of premature aging, one study published in Dermatologic Surgery found that it may actually reverse the signs of aging!
Here is what to know about sunscreen:
- Apply broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher about 15 to 20 minutes prior to stepping outside.
- Wear sunscreen whenever outdoors, even during cloudy, overcast weather.
- Apply sunscreen on all exposed body areas, including the neck, hands and ears.
- Reapply at least every two hours or as often as directed on the instructions of the sunscreen label.
Additional sun care tips include wearing wraparound sunglasses with 100 percent UV ray protection, as well as broad-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts and other protective clothing.
Invest in Medical-Grade Skin Care Products
Investing in the right skin care products can help keep your skin glowing and radiant all summer long. At SILK, we offer an array of high-quality medical-grade products, including the SENTÉ skin care line. SENTÉ products, including cleansers, exfoliators, serums and sunscreens, consist of nourishing nutrients and anti-aging properties proven to cleanse, protect and rejuvenate imperfect skin.
Treat Sun Damage with a Non-Surgical Treatment
If you are already seeing signs of sun damage and aging, we recommend coming into our office for a non-surgical skin treatment. Among our most popular treatments for treating sun damage are facial peels, which can be adjusted to your specific needs and skin type. Another popular treatment in our office is Skinfinity RF, a sophisticated skin resurfacing system designed to treat wrinkles and lines, and tighten loose skin. It uses precise radiofrequency energy to gently heat the underlying tissues of the dermis, triggering the body’s collagen regeneration process. The result is healthier and younger-looking skin. Skinfinity RF is safe for all skin types and is highly customizable.
