During this time of the year, we all want to look our best. Here is a guide to how to have beautiful skin and look your best this summer:
1. Wear sunscreen. Sunscreen protects your skin from skin cancer and wrinkles. It’s easy to look your best with products that don’t clog your pores. Try these sunscreens I like: CeraVe AM, La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid, and Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+.
2. Sun protective clothing. Sunscreen is important but it’s not everything. Clothing with UPF is very helpful to prevent burns, especially during the mid-day sun. Hats, shirts, and shorts are available with UPF.
3. Get your skin ready for summer time fun. I often recommend to patients to have their skin checked before summer time. This way, if there are any precancerous lesions or abnormal moles, they can be removed and treated before possibly becoming cancerous during summer time sun exposure.
4. Have a little fun. New to botox/dysport or fillers? Never had a laser procedure? This is a great time to try it. Try it before your vacation and come back more “refreshed” than you would have otherwise. All your friends will think you had an amazing, uber relaxing time and not know your secret.
5. Have fun this summer!
