“The weather is warming up, and the added sun means it’s time to refresh your skin care routine,” says Dr. Roz Kamani. “As most people know, the sun can cause premature ageing. The skin contains a pigment called melanin and too much sun causes more to be produced. This is why we tan. This can also lead to an uneven tone and freckling, along with the redness and oiliness that is the summertime standard for some people.”
SUMMER SKIN CARE PRODUCTS FOR VANCOUVER, BC
One of the simplest solutions to keep skin beautiful 365 days a year is to use weather appropriate products. In the summer, that means products containing liberal doses of SPF protection, along with antioxidants like resveratrol, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, lycopene, and many others. The point is to repair accumulated damage and increase future resistance.
- Anti-Inflammation – By increasing circulation and cell metabolism, antioxidants such as alpha lipoic acid can reduce inflammation and promote a more even skin tone, as well as help keep acne and wrinkles at bay.
- Firming – Certain antioxidants like Coenzyme Q-10 can enhance firmness and even out skin tone.
- Wrinkling – While skin care won’t get rid of wrinkles, antioxidants like vitamin C + E can help plump out the skin, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, so skin appears smoother and more youthful.
Antioxidants protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. The right products can work wonders for the health and appearance of your skin, but that means considering your skin type and then selecting the products that best address your specific concerns.
From calming inflamed skin to tightening and toning, antioxidants offer great benefits. Let Dr. Kamani analyze your skin and then provide the right product for you. These breakthrough formations can neutralize free radical damage and repair the visible effects of age-accelerated skin.
