Summer is in full swing and chances are you have already spent your fair share of days soaking in the California sun. But whether you notice or not, too much exposure to the sun can cause harm to your skin, including sunburns, wrinkles and age spots. Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to reduce sun damage and restore your skin’s natural glow.
Exfoliate and Moisturize Every Morning
Too much sun dries and dulls the skin, but a good moisturizer and exfoliator can help reduce damage. Exfoliating daily eliminates dead skin cells and allows a new, healthy layer of skin to shine bright. A moisturizer with vitamin C hydrates and revitalizes the skin by erasing fine lines and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. Choose a moisturizer with SPF that you can apply before going outside.
Drink Plenty of Water
Remembering to stay hydrated throughout the day can go a long way towards keeping your skin looking young and bright. Water refreshes the skin by helping it release toxins and preventing it from looking dry or flaky. It’s recommended you drink six to eight glasses of water a day.
Restore Youth with Laser Treatment
Laser skin resurfacing has become an increasingly popular choice to rejuvenate the skin and reverse sun damage. Leading plastic surgeon Dr. Donald Hause of Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery uses a precise laser treatment to eliminate acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Concentrated pulsating beams are applied onto the skin to remove damaged and dead skin cells. The result is new, smoother, healthy-looking skin!
