Summer Skin Care

As the hot summer months are nearing, you may be wondering how to keep your skin looking its best. Remember this…it’s much easier and cheaper to prevent than to correct! As you know, the number one rule during the summer months is sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. A good quality sunscreen is important. The sun’s harmful rays are the biggest contributor to extrinsic aging, so slather up! The sunscreens that I prefer come from two of the most highly regarded medical skincare lines on the market today


Not only do these sunscreens give your skin the utmost protection from the sun’s harmful rays. They also improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

You're going to be much more active in the summer so don't forget your home care! To achieve healthy and beautiful skin, you must at least perform the four basic skincare steps:

Cleanse Exfoliate Moisturize Protect

A client's daily home care and nutrition contribute the most to their skin’s overall health and appearance while aestheticians and dermatologists provide more intense treatments that advance your home care results. This is vital. What you do at home, will make or break the in-office visit.

There are many good skin care lines on the market today, and I have one or two products from a couple different lines, as well, but PCA is my go to and that's why I use them in my backbar. It's unlikely you'll find many skin care lines where you'll love every single product but PCA is always up to date and reformulating products to be the best that they can be, and educating their professionals so that we can be the best that we can be. Currently my home care from PCA consists of:

Facial wash - Gently removes impurities and makeup while leaving the skin hydrated, soothed and pH balanced. Total Strength Serum - this next generation peptide and epidermal growth factor minimizes fine lines and wrinkles while firming, tightening and strengthening aging skin EyeXcellence - A peptide formulation for the eye area that improves the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and fine lines around the eyes. ReBalance- A light moisturizer that hydrates, calms, and soothes normal to sensitive skin. Perfecting Protection - provides broad spectrum protection as well as well as antioxidants and ingredients to prevent discoloration. As a bonus it's zinc oxide formulation melts quickly into darker skin tones and is easily worn under makeup.

With the hot summer months nearing, you do need to be more careful with which types of treatments you receive. But don’t fret, PCA has developed summer friendly treatments. A light microdermabrasion or peel may keep your skin glowing but proper aftercare in the summer months is imperative. Never forget that healthy skin is beautiful skin. Stay out of the tanning bed, wear sunscreen, and provide your skin with the nutrition it needs to fight mother time.
