Undo Summer Skin Sins! 7 Skincare Secrets to Combat Sun Damage. FASHIONTRIBES BEAUTY BLOG

Beauty

To sail into fall with a glowing complexion, Cosmetic Aesthetic Expert Dr. Cheryl Perlis offers up these seven tips & tricks:

1. Exfoliate

  • Why? Get rid of dry, flaky, scaly skin & allow treatments to reach deep within the dermis.
  • How: At-home exfoliators work in a pinch, but a chemical peel or professional microdermabrasion session is more effective.
  • Must-haves: Retin A, Renova or Retinols   

2. Revitalize

  • Why? Replenishes dull, dry skin to its original glow.
  • How: One laser skin rejuvenation treatment with the Laser Genesis will spur collagen production while adding tautness and color. A photo facial will help damaged skin breathe and grow a healthy exterior.
  • Must-haves: Collagen and Elastin Gel by Clayton Shagal & Witch Hazel (refreshes skin, reduces pore size, removes makeup, reduces bags under the eyes and relieves sunburn)

3. Moisturize Face and Body

  • Why? Regular moisturizing prevents wrinkles and keeps skin firm and smooth.
  • How: Cut back on products with Vitamin A as they dry skin. Switch from lotions to creams for deeper replenishing. And remember: exfoliate the body before moisturizing.
  • Must-haves: Pond's Cold Cream - it moisturizes and cleanses at the same time.

4. De-Wrinkle

  • How: Eliminate the appearance of wrinkles with dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane - which remove lines & add volume. Botox also removes wrinkles and prevents them from developing further
  • Must-haves: Vaseline (as long as your skin isn't acne-prone or excessively oily)

5. Replenish Lips

  • How: Heal sun-damaged lips by applying balm several times per day, wax-based balms prevent sun damage while Vitamin E adds extra protection
  • Must haves: Skinceuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair

6. Hydrate

  • Why? Unless it's hydrated, skin cannot glow.
  • How: Drink half your weight in ounces of water as a bare minimum (eg. if you are 150 lbs make sure to drink at least 75 ounces per day as your baseline). However, if you exercise, sweat a lot or are a mouth breather, up your intake further

7. Take Vitamins

  • Why? Daily multivitamins keep the body protected against sickness. During the change of seasons, a cold or flu keeps skin from getting that healthy glow.
