You’ve seen the look. You may have had it yourself. That look that says, “I just got back from vacation.” It’s a look that is relaxed and refreshed, happy and content – a post-vacation glow from spending days (or weeks) having fun in the sun. But you don’t need to hop on a plane or head to a tropical island to get glowing, healthy-looking skin. There are easy and quick ways to do so right here.
If you want to give your skin a summertime vacation glow year-round, keep these three simple tips in mind:
- Wear Sunscreen
Just the smell of sunscreen makes us think of vacation. But don’t leave the sunscreen behind when you come home. You may not be relaxing on the beach as much as you do during the summer, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be out in the sun a lot of the time. Sunscreen can be just as indispensable in the winter as it is in the summer.
Sunscreen, properly applied, is critical to defending yourself against skin damage, wrinkles and brown spots – and, of course, more serious conditions like skin cancer. Use broad-spectrum sunscreens (protect from UV-A and UV-B rays) with an SPF of 30 or higher that are water resistant and always apply before you head outdoors. Just one ounce of sunscreen that fills the palm of your hand effectively shields all exposed areas on the average human body.
- Use Moisturizer
The colder and drier air, heavy winds and indoor heating that we live with during winter dehydrate your epidermis, causing the outer layer to crack. Using a heavy-duty moisturizer will continue your fight against fine lines and wrinkles while keeping skin smooth despite the dry air. For the face, neck and chest area, use an anti-aging heavy moisturizer that adds hydration and fights wrinkles.
- Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is a safe, noninvasive procedure that uses high-energy pulses of light to reduce the visibility of lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging while tightening and lifting the skin for a younger and fuller appearance. It is effective at addressing brown spots, sun damage, rosacea, and dark circles among many other facial imperfections.
