In case you haven’t already guessed, the title of this blog is referring to sunscreen. While it’s not “magic,” sunscreen is—without a doubt—THE most powerful beauty aid ever invented, shielding your skin from the fierce destructive force of the sun! Did you know that the sun, not genetics, time, or gravity, is responsible for about 90 percent of your skin’s aging?
Here’s a primer on getting your complexion back in tip-top shape. The good news is that it’s never too late to enjoy amazing skin. You can achieve a radiant, youthful glow at every age. Here’s how:
1. Commit to wearing sunscreen 365 days a year, rain or shine.
Your first step is deciding to embrace wearing SPF as a lifestyle choice. It should be included in your skin care, makeup, however you can get it. The goal is to never leave the house without your sunscreen on.
2. Reduce existing sun damage with laser skin renewal.
You have many options for undoing the damage already done. Remember laying out on tin foil with baby oil slathered all over you? You can actually diminish those damaged skin cells with periodic laser treatments, which stimulate your skin’s natural healing response to grow healthy and vibrant new skin. BBL photofacials are a non-invasive, minimal-downtime option that blanket your skin in potent light to reverse a wide range of sun damage, including age spots, brown spots, freckles, redness, melasma, small veins, broken capillaries, and more. Halo is an intense skin resurfacing treatment that literally removes damaged skin to trigger a fresh, healthier layer. The best thing about these laser treatments is that they improve the look of your skin, so you’re not only doing your skin a favor by reducing sun damage, you’re also enhancing your appearance!
3. Maintain your glow.
Continue doing your part by applying sunscreen daily and scheduling “maintenance” BBLs to keep building upon your results. The more you do these treatments, the better your skin looks!
