The summer heat notwithstanding, some of our best parties, outings and getaways are planned for the weekend. So, as you prepare to mesmerise your friends, someone special with your beauty, take a few steps to shed your old and tired skin.
Summer season takes quite a toll on our skin and if you don’t stay hydrated, wrinkles and acne can appear on your skin.
As we pile on cream over cream to protect our skin from the harmful rays of sun, it becomes a magnet for all the dirt and pollutants drifting in the air. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.
So, here is a list of some skin procedures you need to try to rejuvenate your summer-hit skin:
Visit a dermatologist to seek a medi facial that will suit your skin type and requirements. Medi-facials are not the usual facial massages that are offered in beauty salons and parlours. These are skin treatments offered at clinics under the supervision of skin doctors. Medi facials are special medical facials designed to treat specific skin conditions with their ingredients chosen according to the skin’s needs. A dermatologist will first examine your skin closely to understand the damage it has suffered and kind of repair it needs. A medi facial may have specifically anti acne properties or deep cleansing properties or anti-oxidants to improve skin’s appearance.
Do you know your body sheds skin as a matter of routine? Well, with time the upper layer of our skin cracks under the environmental pressure; the cells composing it die and cloud the upper dermis that is visible. Our skin sheds these dead cells and generate new every few weeks. However, as we age, skin’s ability to renew itself or the skin-cell turnover slows down. This means dead cells keep clinging to the skin for longer than they should, making the skin appear dull, dry, and lifeless. This also reduces the skin’s capacity to accept nutrients supplied to it topically. Hence, the importance of exfoliation. Exfoliation promotes the shedding of the skin’s dull, outer layer and with it the damage suffered by this layer, the fine lines and discoloration that reside there.
Visit a dermatologist this season to seek a good exfoliating treatment. Peels are among the most popular exfoliating and skin rejuvenation treatments.
Give Up Bad Habits
Excessive smoking, drinking and too much indulgence of fast food are habits you should say no to have glow and freshness on your skin. Smoking causes the breakdown of the skin, accelerating the process of skin ageing. Too much alcohol dehydrates the skin as it does to the body.
