Summer is quickly approaching and it is time to switch up our skin care routine. Here are the top 4 things we recommend you do in order to prepare your beautiful skin for the change of seasons.
- If you always wanted laser hair removal, winter and spring are the best seasons to do it. Because laser hair removal must be done over a course of several treatments to achieve desired results, it may be preferable to have it done before we tend to show a little more skin during the summer months. In addition, it is essential to avoid the sun 48 hours after a laser hair removal treatment. For certain parts of the body, this is obviously more difficult to do in the summer. Therefore, make sure to plan your laser treatments accordingly.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! You are what you eat (and drink!). Proper hydration from food and water makes a huge difference in the look and appearance of your skin. Summer’s heat can cause us to become less hydrated so it is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day. A lesser known fact is that a diet consisting of healthy essential fatty acids is also necessary in order for our skin to look properly hydrated. This is because our skin is lipophilic (attracted to fatty acids). Therefore, in addition to drinking plenty of liquids, make sure to include healthy fats like nuts, seed, avocados and oily fish into your daily diet.
- Cellulite is an extremely common and normal condition that a majority of women have. However, if you are unhappy with your cellulite, now is the time to get a little extra help. Because there are different contributing factors to the appearance of cellulite, there are also different remedies to cellulite. These include message (to help circulation and lymphatic drainage), ingestion of collagen peptides (to regain collagen), diet and exercise ( to reduce the amount of fat pushing against the connective tissue and to help tighten the skin in the butt and thigh region), and increased water intake (to help with circulation and skin elasticity). If one has tried these different cellulite remedies and is still not seeing desired results, liposuction may be a very effective treatment for cellulite. This is due to the fact that the number one contributor to cellulite is due to the presence of fat in the butt and thigh region. Cavi-lipo is especially effective in eliminating cellulite and it is completely non-invasive. It works by breaking down fat cells, liquifying them and thereby eliminating the type of fat that leads to the appearance of cellulite. Give it a try before the summer!
- Last, but definitely not least, wear your sunscreen! Now is the time to find a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ (one suitable for your face and one suitable for your body.) Healthwise, applying sunscreen is an essential step in order to prevent the sun’s harmful rays which cause skin cancer. From an aesthetic point of view, it is incredibly important to apply a broad spectrum SPF 30+ in order to prevent the most prevalent signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and loss of elasticity. Make sure you reapply sunscreen through out the day (according to your sunscreens directions, usually very 2-6 hours), after sweating and/or water activities, and even if it is cloudy or you are indoors.
