Everyone knows the basics of skincare, things like wash your face in the morning and before bed and to use a moisturizer, regardless of your age. When youth is on your side, you tend to not worry so much about your skin, but as the years pass by, we start paying more attention. We start to see new and different moles, sunspots, and uneven skin tone. If you have more spots than a zebra, listen up! There are a few ways to combat this. First off, always use sunscreen, even on a cloudy day. I use Sente, which is an awesome sunscreen that doesn’t clog my pores and isn’t heavy on my skin, and it even has a light bronzer in it. Sunscreen is the single most important tip for skincare. Also, a hydroquinone cream can be useful to even out some of the dark spots. I always suggest Retinol as well, which doesn’t do much for pigment changes, but is great for fine lines that are also acquired from sun exposure.
If you finish this summer and hyperpigmentation or “spots” on your skin, come in and see us for a spot peel by Dermaceutic. This peel basically has zero down time and is super effective, which is a rare combination. Regardless of how your skin looks now or at the end of summer, remember to always wear your sunscreen!
