Memorial Day Weekend marks the kickoff of summer. That means now is the time to find out about medspa treatments and products that will allow you to enjoy a gorgeous summer tan without fear of damaging the skin and leaving it vulnerable to photo aging.
Your prevention and preparedness regimen should include the following:
Deep Cleansing Facial
This treatment starts with cleansing and steaming to detoxify the skin and facilitate the extraction of blackheads, thus leaving pores purified and revitalized. A masque fortified with exfoliating agents removes dead skin cells and stimulates the production of new cells replenished with elastin and collagen. Meanwhile, vitamin-and-mineral moisturizing agents nourish the skin and make it more resistant to damage from exposure to sun and environmental toxins.
Vitamin C Enzyme Peel
Incorporating a powerful dose of all-natural Vitamin C, this peel capitalizes on active organic enzymes to stimulate the rapid turnover of skin cells. The exfoliation of dead cells restores the epidermal layer of skin and reduces the appearance of sun damage, blemishes, wrinkles, acne scars and age spots. The result is brighter, tighter and more youthful-looking skin that will serve as a smooth, even-toned canvas for a glowing summer tan.
SkinCeuticals Serum 10 AOX
This product should be applied first thing in the morning to a freshly cleansed face. As a strong antioxidant, the product works well on any skin type, actively fighting the negative impact of free radicals, which cause the skin to show signs of aging and sun damage. Serum 10 AOX contains an advanced antioxidant technology known as “AOX+” but other active agents include ferulic acid and 10% pure vitamin C. Usage prepares the skin for a follow-up application of Sport UV, making the sunscreen 8 times more effective.
SkinCeuticals Sport UV Defense SPF 45
This broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with transparent zinc oxide should be used liberally before going in the sun. It has been tested under new FDA regulations and proven waterproof and sweat-proof. Nevertheless, it should be reapplied after extensive time in the water to ensure full protection. Sport UV Defense is non-comedogenic as well as PABA-free and Oxybenzone-free. Thus, you can sun yourself to a golden brown while protecting yourself from burning, freckling, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and sunspots.
