Tips for Keeping Your Skin Healthy and Protected During Summer

Your skin is incredible. Not only is it the largest organ of your body, but it also holds all of your internal organs safely. It’s also a protective barrier that helps regulate your temperature. But with all of these responsibilities, it’s also vulnerable to more than 3,000 skin conditions — many which can worsen during summer.

As you gear up for the warmer summer temperatures, keeping your skin healthy and protected from harmful UV rays is vital to having a beautiful complexion. Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start when accommodating West Palm, Florida’s triple-digital summers.

Whether you have a pre-existing skin condition you’d like to address or are just looking for an extra beauty boost, the skin care experts at L.A.Vinas M.D Plastic Surgery provide a variety of services to help give you radiant skin all summer long. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and protected:

Slather on SPF

You’ve heard the importance of wearing SPF from your mom and your dermatologist, too. And rightfully so — 90% of skin aging is due to the sun. 

Don’t rely solely on makeup that contains SPF, as these products only protect your skin from UVB rays. This leaves your face susceptible to harm from UVA rays, which cause more skin cancer and damage overall. 

Keep younger-looking skin for many years to come by applying VMD SPF 55 on all exposed skin. We’ll be happy to send you home with some the next time you stop in.

Get a HydraFacial®

Summer skin often means naked skin, especially when you hit the beach. Brown spots and wrinkles often become exposed whether you like it or not. Undergoing a HydraFacial can address these skin concerns while giving you a dewy fresh-faced look.

HydraFacial is an advanced four-part solution that goes above and beyond the traditional facial. In a single treatment, you’ll receive:

You’ll also be amazed at how much better your makeup and beauty products work after your HydraFacial. Your skin absorbs products more effectively, allowing foundation and powders to glide on more smoothly.

Use a lightweight moisturizer

Your skin is less dry in the summer, but that doesn’t mean you should skip the moisturizer altogether. It just means you should opt for a lightweight option. 

Finding the right moisturizer can address skin conditions that spike during hot weather, like rosacea. And if you have naturally oily skin, a lightweight moisturizer should still be used during these humid months because without it, your glands may ramp up oil production. Talk to one of our skin care technicians to find what summer moisturizer is best for you. 

Experience Icon IPL

Icon IPL uses pulsed light technology to diminish brown spots, rosacea, freckles, sunspots, and more. Get noticeably younger skin with this minimally invasive state-of-the-art technology that encourages your body’s natural healing system. The result is an even-toned, radiant complexion that may even allow you to ditch the concealer once and for all.  

Drink lots of water

One of the best ways to get beautiful skin is by staying hydrated. During the hot summer months, your body needs more water than you’re probably used to. Focus on consuming half your body weight in ounces of water. That means if you weigh 150 pounds, you should be drinking 75 ounces of water a day.
