3 Tips to get a Safe and Healthy Summer Glow

Protect and pamper your skin

May is Skin Cancer Awareness month and The Laser & Skin Surgery Center strives to highlight effective skin care products that will not only protect your skin during the sunny months of summer, but have it looking youthful and ready to take on the beach. The Laser & Skin Surgery Center offers antioxidants to combat aging skin and to prevent sun damage, as well as Jane Iredale’s cosmetic line that is designed to nourish and enhance your skin during these sun-filled days.

You don’t need to be afraid of the sun’s damaging rays or let your skin build up sun damage from over exposure this year. Investing in your skin by investing in protective and beautifying topicals is one of the best ways to pamper, and care for, yourself during these sunny months.

Tip 1: Repair skin with Antioxidants

Antioxidant creams and serums are an excellent way to start your skin renewal. Free radicals accumulate in the skin from aging and environmental factors (like sun exposure) and can become detrimental to the skin.

Antioxidants, like Vitamin C and E, neutralize free radicals by sacrificing their own electrons to prevent free radicals from stealing them from your tissue. Cleveland board- certified dermatologist Dr. Diwan recommends applying antioxidants twice a day for optimal anti-aging and skin-protecting treatment.

It’s amazing how a few minutes a day can completely rework the chemical balance in the skin and truly create the balance required for youthful, beautiful skin.

Tip 2: Get a safe tan

Many are under the impression that having a coveted tan comes at a price. This is true if you get that tan in an unsafe manner. Tanning bed use and laying out in the sun can result in premature wrinkles, sun damage, and a much higher risk for skin cancers.

However, make-up options are not only less time consuming, but they can also give that same summer glow without the harmful side effects. Jane Iredale’s Tantasia Self Tanner and Bronzer  (with green tea antioxidant) is an excellent alternative for achieving your natural looking tan by application of a safe and protective cosmetic on your skin.

Tip 3: Protect your skin from the sun

Jane Iredale also offers the Powder ME SPF 30 sunscreen powder that can be easily applied over makeup. Anyone who’s used sunscreen over make up has dealt with the messy, and makeup smearing effect it has, making it very tempting to just skip the protection next time around. With the light Powder ME SPF 30, you simply add the tinted powder over your makeup—no mess and no headache. You can go about your day feeling confident that not only will your makeup look fantastic throughout the day, but you are also reinforcing protection against the sun’s harsh rays.

Bonus! Combat skin cancer and reverse sun damage

For those already impacted by sun damage, Dr. Diwan is ready to partner with you to help you be proactive about your skin’s health. She offers skin cancer screenings to help diagnose skin cancer, as well as minimally invasive laser treatments to reverse the cosmetic effects of sun damage.

The Laser & Skin Surgery Center team wants you to have safe and fun outdoor adventures this year. By putting your skin’s health first, you can ensure that your glow will be both beautiful and healthy.
