Top 4 Ways to Prep Your Skin for Summer

Top 4 Ways to Prep Your Skin for Summer

Summer may seem like a ways away right now, but it is never too early to prepare. Taking good care of your skin during the winter and spring will help your skin be prepared for summer's extra sun exposure. If you want to make sure your skin looks its best this summer, there are a few things you need to do before exposing it to the sun.


1. Protect your skin year round

Protect your skin year round by using sunscreen every day no matter what the weather or season. The first step should be finding sunscreen that protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays as well as infrared radiation (IR). IR can cause premature aging of the skin because it penetrates deep into the layers of our skin's tissue.


2. Keep your skin clean and refreshed

Facials can help hydrate your skin and reduce any redness or inflammation caused by acne breakouts. Prepare for summer with a facial using an exfoliating acid like glycolic or salicylic, which help give your skin that healthy glow everyone is after!


3. Stimulate collagen production

Microneedling treatments stimulate collagen production which helps with wrinkles and aging signs like fine lines or dark spots on your face. The technique may help reduce lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone (including persistent melasma), tighten skin, and fade scars and stretch marks.


4. Stay hydrated and moisturize

Stay hydrated and drink water throughout the day to keep your skin moisturized and plump. Drinking more than enough water can also help reduce puffiness in certain areas of your face like under the eyes, which is often a sign of dehydration. Using a moisturizer specifically for your skin type in conjunction with microdermabrasion procedures will keep you skin hydrated and glowing.

Bonus tip! Always keep up with any dermal fillers year round, regardless of season. You will achieve the best results and be able to use less fillers, when you schedule at the recommended intervals by your aesthetics professional.

Summer may seem far away but with these easy steps you will be better prepared when it arrives. Take a look at all of the medical spa services and treatments we provide here at our Prince Frederick clinic to keep you looking, and feeling, your best year round.
