4 Tips to Treating and Preventing Sun Damaged Skin

With summer quickly coming to an end you may start to notice a few tell tale signs of too much time in the sun. Protecting your skin can involve more than just slathering on that sunscreen but that doesn’t mean your daily sun protection routine has to be complicated.

  • The #1 way to protect your skin from the suns harmful rays is with the application of a full spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Be sure to reapply throughout the day. Especially if you’re outdoors and active!

  • Did you know that vitamin C can actually help protect the skin from UV rays as well? Vitamin C boosts the effectiveness of your sunscreen, so we urge you to apply a C serum daily underneath your sunscreen moisturizer.

  • Resurfacing your skin on a daily basis is a great way to gently exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells (these dead skin cells can also discolor the skins surface!) Daily resurfacing not only evens the skin tone, it helps combat aging and balances the skin’s pH for hydrated, healthy skin.

  • Visit your dermatologist on a regular basis. The skin is our body’s largest organ so its especially important to have it checked regularly for any serious signs of sun damage.
