Top 7 SkinMedica Summer Skin Care Tips

1. Exfoliate using SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser for clearer and smoother skin first thing in the morning. By removing dead, dulling skin you will prevent clogging and boost hydration from your moisturizers and serums. After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating tinted SPF moisturizer to protect your skin.

2. Hydrate your skin with a SkinMedica Calming Masque one to two times a week. Add a dollop of  SkinMedica TNS Serum underneath your moisturizer. Toners are also a refreshing moisturizer prep, evening out your skin porosity.

3. Drink Water as higher temperatures can lead to body dehydration, headaches and dizziness. Eight glasses of water daily will maintain critical moisture balance of your body and skin, and will also detoxify. You should increase intake to 3 glasses of water for every caffeinated beverage you consume to avoid the dehydrating effects of caffeine.

4. Apply Sunscreen. Most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should. Use one coin sized dollop for the face and three times more for your body. Apply SkinMedica Environmental Defense Sunscreen every 80 minutes and avoid the sun from mid-morning to late afternoon when possible.

5. Soothe sunburned skin with SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream in case you forgot the sunscreen. Sun damage continues hours after exposure.  UV radiation damages our DNA, and a bi-product of this damage are free radicals. While free radicals are also damaging, our cells have evolved mechanisms to cope and repair themselves with the help of antioxidants. However, improper repair of cells can lead to mutations or loss of genetic information that can cause premature aging, cancer, and genetic abnormalities.

6. Repair and treat sun damage. UV light causes photoaging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin and wrinkles, whether you have burned your skin or not. A tan may be a popular summer look, but it actually is a sign of damage. Bombard your skin with age-fighting antioxidants like SkinMedica GlyPro Antioxidant Serum to help reverse damage, and to further protect it from the aging effects of UV.

7. Feel comfortable and confident in your skin. Get smooth using Velashape III: one of the easiest ways to gradually eliminate those embarrassing lumps, dimples and cottage cheese appearance. VelaShape uses radiofrequency technology, infrared light energy, and massage techniques in order to smooth out dimpled skin. The heat and vacuum combination can increase the metabolism of energy in order to both shrink fat cells and stimulate the lymphatic drainage system within your body.
