Hot Skin Care Tips for Summer

The Texas sun and air pollution wreak havoc on your skin during the summer months, so Gayle B. Wills, Medical Aesthetician at Dr. Connie Hiers Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, offers several tips to combat the harsh sun and to keep your skin glowing and healthy.

Always use sunblock with at least a SPF 40 or 50 on your face. The skin under your eyes is thin and delicate; therefore, it is beneficial to use a sunscreen specific to the under eye area to prevent sun damage and wrinkles.

I also recommend the following products for skin protection and coverage during the summer:
Obagi C or Skinceuticals C Serum – There are several patents on these two Vitamin C serums, and they will also help prevent skin cancer. Skinceuticals Under Eye SPF 50 – Protects the thin layer of skin under the eye against harmful sunrays.

Once a month, indulge in a Vitamin C Silk Peel Dermalinfusion Facial to keep your face looking smooth and vibrant all summer long. This quick non-invasive treatment infuses a Vitamin C serum of antioxidants directly on and below the surface of your skin. It removes dead skin, evens skin tone, stimulates collagen and increases circulation to brighten and smooth out the skin. This summer facial also includes a blueberry mask to hydrate and leave your skin, whether you have dry or oily skin, feeling like velvet.

Don’t let the summer sun “wear out” your skin. In addition to skincare, hats and SPF clothing can provide a comfortable and fashionable barrier of protection from the sun. Check your local sporting goods and outdoor stores for an assortment of sun protection clothing.

Keep your skin glowing and healthy this summer with these great tips!
