Make your skin shine this summer


Prep your summer skin with these tips from skin experts

Hydrafacial or hydradermabrasion is the best procedure to start summer skincare. It combines the elements of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration in one treatment – and is a non-invasive and non-irritating procedure. It takes care of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, clogged and enlarged pores, oily skin, acne and hyper pigmentation.

Peels removes dead cells from your skin. A chemical peel involves the use of acid solution, alpha hydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid, or phenol. It smoothens the texture of the skin and will help in removing the wrinkles and skin pigmentation. Peels also reduce visible spots or stretch marks. NOTE: It’s always good to do a peel three weeks from a big day – as any irritation has time to settle down.

Start laser hair reduction now to enjoy a fuzz-free summer. Laser treatments should start six months prior to any big day that you have coming up.

Dermal fillers help if the skin is sagging and also target wrinkles on the lower eyelids, cheek and around the nose. This makes the skin more youthful, bright and radiant. In addition, there are also non-invasive radio-frequency treatments that can bring new collagen formation on the face.

Routine cleansing and toning is the best skincare advice ever. The skin needs to shed the layers of makeup and feel clean and fresh, at the end of the day. Tip: Start using a skincare cream containing vitamin C.

Often the most talked about yet ignored fact for skincare is the regular use of sunscreen. Dab on some sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping out. You can mix it with your regular moisturiser or with a foundation too.
