Maintaining a “good” glow can be quite a challenge this time of year! From harsh UV rays to bug bites and brutal heat, your skin is bombarded by a constant onslaught of complexion offenders. To help you maintain radiant, healthy skin all year round, here are a few of my favorite pro secrets:
1. Use a physical, broad-spectrum SPF with antioxidants, which help to fend off damaging free-radicals, which prematurely age you by breaking down collagen. I offer a wide range of medical-grade sunscreens at Belle Marin, including formulas by Alastin Skincare®, Coola® Suncare, Environ®, and my personal brand, Belle Marin Rx. I’ll help you choose the brand that best suits your skin during your consultation.
2. Schedule a professional skin rejuvenation treatment.
The key is to remove damaged skin and stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. You can do this with a number of skin treatments. Microlaserpeel®, (also known as The Weekend Peel), or Chemical Peels, help to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin to reveal more even tone and smoother texture with little downtime. One of my all-time favorite complexion rescuers is the BBL™ photofacial. This non-invasive light treatment involves no downtime because it doesn’t break the skin. Instead, it stimulates deep within your dermis to improve pigmentation irregularities while also triggering collagen growth for months of improvements. We’ll work together to formulate the ideal skin treatment and regimen to meet your complexion’s unique needs.
3. Pamper your skin with a healthy lifestyle.
Diet really does affect your skin’s health. Are you eating plenty of fruits and veggies and staying hydrated? Are you exercising regularly and getting your heart rate up? These healthy lifestyle choices aren’t just good for your waistline and general health, they also boost your complexion big time by improving blood flow, reducing stress levels, and improving your overall emotional well-being—all of which do wonders for your skin to impart a natural, lit-from-within glow.
