While you’re making long-overdue plans with family and friends this summer, we want to remind you to take great care of your skin, too! You may feel like you already have your daily skincare regimen figured out, but did you know that your skin needs different kinds of care as the seasons change?
We proudly provide medical-grade skincare because it has been clinically proven to deliver optimal results. When you schedule a personal consultation with us, we will work closely with you to evaluate your skin type and concerns and recommend the best products and regimen for you.
Here’s how you can achieve healthy, happy skin this summer while supporting our local female-owned and operated practice!
Protect and perfect with medical-grade sunscreen.
When you protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen, your skin cells are free to do what skin cells do best: perfect your skin by clearing away damaged skin cells and stimulating the growth of healthy, vibrant skin cells. When your skin is left unprotected from sun damage and environmental pollutants, your skin cells are forced into stress mode, trying to repair all the damage as it’s being done. Give your skin a break by applying medical-grade sunscreen every day of the year, rain or shine! We recommend applying protective skincare products such as:
• Alastin® HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36
● SkinMedica Essential Defense
● Image PREVENTION+ Daily Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 30
With these kinds of products, your skin cells are able to relax and focus on perfecting your skin instead of repairing damage, resulting in radiant, healthier skin.
In addition to medical-grade products, there are many simple ways to protect your skin on a daily basis! Block damaging UV rays and help your skin look healthier and younger for years to come by:
● Wearing a large brim hat
● Minimizing sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., when the sun is strongest
● Sitting under an umbrella
● Reapplying sunblock every two to three hours (set a reminder on your phone if it helps!)
Now is the time to invest in your skin by taking great care of it, both at home and by visiting AVIE! for the highest quality care and products! Call us today at (703) 870-3844 or request a consultation online to learn more and get started.
