The Rx: summer skin care tips

July 12, 2011

Summer Skin Care TipsHere are a few tips on protecting your skin and maintaining summer's healthy glow. A light moisturizer with sunscreen will hold its effectiveness for only 2 hours. Do not rely on this approach for prolonged sun exposure. Better to choose a true sunblock or sunscreen in addition to your moisturizer such as Citrix Antioxidant Sunscreen. Polyphenols, the active ingredients in green tea extract are potent antioxidants that neutralize damaging free radicals caused by sun exposure. Recent studies indicate these compounds may reverse early skin cancers. Use Replenix green tea extract on a daily basis to protect your skin from environmental damage and to give it a healthy glow. Bug Repellents containing DEET should not be reapplied too frequently because DEET levels can build up. I suggest avoiding sunscreens containing bug repellent because sunscreens do need to be reapplied frequently. Clothing is the best protection from the sun. Remember, wear a hat to protect your scalp even if you have a full head of hair. Self tanners and bronzers are excellent choices to get a tan look without harmful sun exposure. Be sure to apply these products smoothly with the edges of your fingers to avoid streaks and other irregularities. Always wash your hands after application to avoid tan palms! Keep in mind that the tan you get from these products will not protect your skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure and you should still always apply sunscreen or sunblock.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND SKIN REJUVENATION: HEAT SHOCK PROTEINS (“HSPs”)

HSPs are an important component of treatment strategies to address the effects of the aging process and reduce signs of maturing skin. HSPs occur when skin is subjected to heat and responds to the small injuries resulting from the heat by repairing itself and restoring its connective tissue. Many treatments at MGMD Dermatology utilize this process, yielding skin rejuvenation including improvement in fine lines, skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
