Over Exposure The Summer Sun
Summer’s here everyone and whether you are a fan of it or not the fact remains you are being exposed! Natural Sunlight does stimulate the production of vitamin D but more times than not we become over exposed to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays and end up with sun damaged skin. You don’t have to spend time at the beach or doing outdoor activities to be over exposed. Daily commutes and running errands can also cause skin damage if you are not protected!
Protection is a Must!
Taking care of your skin, the largest body organ and protecting it at all times is key!
With solar flares being at it’s peak in 2013 it seems wise to take extra precaution and be more aware of our actions. I always make sure before I head out in the mornings to apply a high spf suncreen lotion such as NIA’s Sun Damage Prevention SPF 30 to my face, neck, hands and shoulders. I usually use an over the counter brand sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for my arms and legs or feet depending specifically on my attire for that day. Sometimes reapplying your spf lotion throughout the day is necessary if you are going to be outdoors for extended periods.
Visible Unwanted Damage
Your daily skin care regimen is a very crucial routine that will eventually reap the results of what you sow! Being in my late 30′s with combination skin and in the past have experienced the pitfalls of not keeping up with only the best care for my skin. Sun spots, wrinkles, loss of skin elacticity and uneven skin tone are all unwanted but natural results of the aging and sun damage process.
My personal skincare solution
In the past few years after receiving 3 ViPeel treatments to reduce scars and gain collagen production and adding NIA 24 skincare products into my daily regimen I have been very pleased with the results. I am also much more dedicated to staying on top of taking better care of my skin. The ViPeel treatments reveal skin that looks and feels smoother with a more even tone and is actually healthier than before. After 8 days following the ViPeel treatment I always resume my skincare regimen with NIA Gentle Cleansing Cream and Intensive Recovery Complex to ensure optimal skin elasticity with a radiant glow and tone balance. I also like to maintain my optimum skin health using NIA 24 Pro-Niacin Skin Strengthening Complex and Eye Repair Cream. Protecting my skin daily with SPF is how I prevent further damage and visible signs of hyperpigmentation. Just to note: a healthy diet and lifestyle with lots of water drinking is a personal plus for me!
