10 Ways to Cut Down Photo-damage this Summer As the temperature heats up this summer, it’s a perfect time to step up your skincare routine to fight against photo-damage .

10 Ways to Cut Down Photo-damage this Summer:

10 Ways to Cut Down Photo-damage this Summer ALWAYS wear a sunscreen SPF 30 or above. Look for broad-spectrum, yet lightweight products such as Elta MD UV 46 or La Roche Posay’s Ultralight Fluide 45 so it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin as the weather gets warmer. Talk to your dermatologist about starting a topical retinoid skincare product, as studies shows it can reverse early signs of photoaging , boost collagen production, and diminish fine lines. Reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 hours. It sounds tough but it’s easy with a product like the Colorescience Sunforgettable Power Brush . Eat a diet rich in antioxidants: fresh berries, tomatoes, broccoli, and goji berries to reduce oxidative stress induced by UV exposure. Boost your skincare regimen with a vitamin C products, which will not only protect against UV damage, but brighten your overall complexion as well. My favorites include Skinceutical’s C E Ferrulic or Skinmedica’s C and E complex. www.thederminstitute.com

10 Ways to Cut Down Photo-damage this Summer When engaging in heavy outdoor activities, consider an oral supplement like Heliocare, which have concentrated antioxidant activity to boost your “internal SPF” and decrease your risk of getting sunburned. If you have little ones younger than six months old, sunscreen is not safe on their delicate skin. Consider alternatives like sun protective clothing. K&J Sunprotective clothing will keep your little ones safe and fashionable! Chill out in the shade. Avoid doing heavy outdoor activities when the sun is strongest, between the hours of 10-3pm. Buy a pair of fabulous sunglasses. They not only look cool, but protect the eyes from UV damage. Check the expiration date on your sunscreen … Last year’s might be expired. Don’t keep it in the car the heat can breakdown the ingredients that are sun-protective. Apply a golf-ball size amount about 20 minutes before heading outdoors. www.thederminstitute.com
