Although the summer is coming to an end, one lasting effect of the season is sun damage. While many have certainly worked hard to keep up on the sunscreen protection, more than likely, premature skin damage did occur.
“Despite our best intentions for a solar defense, the sun and its rays are very strong,” said a spokesperson from Skin Care Heaven an e-commerce and skin research center based in San Diego. “So as soon as we are able, it’s really important to get started on an end of summer skin recovery routine.”
Ultraviolet radiation from the sun has two culprits which jumpstart skin damage: UVA and UVB.
“UVA rays typically cause wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots,” said the spokesperson. “UVB rays burn the skin.”
However, there are steps to help reverse the damage the sun caused over the last few months.
Skin Care Heaven’s top “end of summer” products in the anti-aging product category include:
DermaEarth Natural Anti-Aging Starter Set: Using natural ingredients and proven peptides, this product line helps diminish wrinkles, fine lines, and improves even skin tone. The set consists of DermaEarth SugarBerry Skin Resurfacing Cleanser, DermaEarth EnLighten Cell Brightening Serum and DermaEarth Peptidal Cell Activating Serum.
Vivite Core System Kit by Allergan: This kit includes a cleanser, antioxidant serum, revitalizing eye cream and evening cream. The system helps buff away dead skin cells, hydrates and protects it with antioxidants.
Obagi C-Clarifying Serum: A potent serum blend of 4 percent hydroquinone, vitamin C and L-ascorbic acid. This product helps even out skin tone and protects.
Obagi Nu-Derm Blender: A hydroquinone formula which targets skin at the cellular level and aids in hyper-pigmentation.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: A gentle exfoliator, this product prepares the skin for anti-aging treatments including wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
“Before starting any new skin care regimen, it’s important to speak with skin care professionals to make sure the right system used is right for your skin,” said the spokesperson, adding how Skin Care Heaven has a team of professionals on hand.
And although summer is nearly over, always remember, to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen all year round for maximum protection.
