Winter is the perfect time to think about not only keeping your skin hydrated, but to combat all that summer lovin’. Changing up your skincare routine seasonally will help transition your skin from the hot weather and sun’s aggressive rays to more soothing cleansers and moisturizers that beat the cold. Pair these with targeted treatments that reduce the pigmentation sun can cause and stimulate collagen, and you’ll improve the overall look, texture and health of your skin.
How is Sun Damage Caused?
Over time, exposure to UVA and UVB rays depletes our collagen stores, causing skin to look “weathered”. This premature aging of the skin, or rather, a “breakdown” of our skin’s DNA, results in uneven pigmentation, loss of elasticity, and change in skin texture. Increased sun exposure also mean increased risk of skin cancer.
How To Rejuvenate Sun-Damaged Skin
Sciton Forever Young BBL Treatment
This FDA-approved, innovative light treatment penetrates and heats the outer layers of the skin. The generated heat is absorbed by the targeted areas, thereby eliminating the effects of sun damage such as fine vessels and excessive melanin. New collagen production is stimulated for rejuvenated skin.
Micro Laser Peels
Reveal your inner glow with a professional peel, designed to shed dead skin cells and stimulate new collagen production in a “resurfacing effect”. Existing pigmentation will be reduced, pore size diminished, and skin will appear thicker, tighter, and younger.
Your At-Home Skin Care Routine for Sun-Damaged Skin
- EXFOLIATE well to stimulate skin cell-turnover and resurface the skin for a healthier and even complexion.
- LIGHTEN AND BRIGHTEN the skin by using a topical antioxidant, like Vitamin C. This serum protects your skin from photo damage while helping to lighten existing pigmentation. Choose a cream-based Vitamin C to prevent it from oxidizing when coming in contact with oxygen.
- PROTECT your skin with a sunblock that contains zinc or titanium.
