What a beautiful summer we are having in Minnesota! If you are like us here at Midsota MedSpa, you like to be outside and enjoy the summer sun. Careful though, all that sun can take a toll on your skin. Here are three of our favorite summer approved tips to ensure that your skin stays healthy and beautiful all season long.
Keep Your Skin Well-Protected
By now, you are sure to know the importance of sunscreen! While we cannot stress enough the importance of applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen every morning, there are other things that you can do to protect your skin as well. Keep the sun off of your face by wearing a wide-brimmed sunhat. More than just shading your face, a sun hat also protects easily forgotten areas like the top of the head, ears, and neck. You can also protect your skin from the inside out by drinking lots of water to ensure that you are keeping yourself and your skin well hydrated.
Don’t Forget About Your Eyes
Sun protection is likely not the first thing that comes to mind when you are choosing your stylish summer shades. However, with the right sunglasses you can ward off Botox® for another year or two by protecting the delicate skin around the eyes. Wearing sunglasses keep us from squinting in the sun’s bright light, thus preventing crow’s feet from developing. Another tip! Look for sunglasses that offer UV protection to further keep sun damage at bay.
Treatments like Microneedling with PRP can also keep the skin around your eyes looking its best. By encouraging new collagen production, Microneedlingthickens and plumps the thin skin around the eyes. The addition of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)only enhances these results as PRP is full of skin-healthy growth factors, which promotes cell growth, tissue repair, and furthers collagen stores.
Choose Sun-Safe Treatments
While some cosmetic treatments require that you keep out of the sun and are thus best performed during the grayer months, others can be performed year round at Midsota MedSpa. Along with microneedling with PRP, Microdermabrasion is another summertime favorite. Microdermabrasion uses a specialized wand to gently buff away dull, damaged, and dead skin cells—making it the perfect treatment to get rid of built-up sun damage. New and healthy skin cells will exude a refreshed and rejuvenated summer glow.
