Florida Summer Skin Care Tips

Jun 30, 2016 10:32PM

Just as seasons change, so should our skin care routines. Florida summers are hot and muggy, the UV rays are off-the-charts, and we frequent both salt water and swimming pools. So, here are some tips to keep your skin healthy: 

Exfoliate: During the summer, exfoliate with an at-home scrub or masque twice a week. Schedule a Microdermabrasion or Dermaplane treatment once a month. Sloughing away loose or dead cells helps the skin absorb moisturizer. Also, shower body scrubs twice a week provide softness and glow.  

Hydrate: It’s especially important to drink enough water during this humid season. 6-8 glasses a day will keep your skin hydrated and vibrant.  

SPF: The suns rays break down collagen in the skin, so avoid looking leathery with a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with at least SPF 30. It’s also important to remember to reapply throughout the day, and protect your lips too with SPF 30+ protective balm.  

Nourish: Use products that protect, nourish, hydrate and replenish the skin. Professional products offer the highest concentration and quality of effective ingredients. Choose products that contain antioxidants like vitamin C and E which help prevent and reverse photo-damage, caffeine and silybin which reduce UV DNA damage, and plant-derived stem cells which yield anti-inflammatory/anti-aging properties. 

 Finally, for healthy summertime skin, visit Four Pillars for a facial treatment and to learn more about our professional PCA Skin[Symbol], Image skincare and Aloette[Symbol] skin care products. We can help you begin the skin regeneration process for that essential glow!
