So now that we are halfway through the summer and it seems to be on fast forward it may be time to start thinking about the fall. Now I know that everyone is using their physical non-absorbing broad-spectrum sun protection every day, however, there will be other things that our skin will need after a wonderful summer.
Number one is hydration.
So everyone knows the value of wearing your sun protection for your skin’s health but did you know that exposing your skin even once without sun protection can increase your skins TEWL (transepidermal water loss) which is a fancy way of describing your skins barrier and ability to maintain healthy hydration levels. Lack of hydration can cause sensitivity in the skin so it is important to rehydrate and improve barrier function. One way that you can do this is to schedule a treatment with your AlumierMD pro for the new Aqua Infusion treatment. It has a host of ingredients that help rehydrate the skin and minimize the TEWL.
Now if you are too busy enjoying the social life of summer to have a treatment to take the time to see your AlumierMD pro to have a home care routine customized to your skins unique needs. They will be able to match your lifestyle and skin concerns to the correct routine.
You may also want to invest in using the Alumience AGE especially if you live in a major urban center. The smog in summer generally becomes worse and the unique serum with not only provide antioxidant support, help prevent glycation but most importantly for the summer provide a biomimetic shield to help particulate matter (pollution). This worn daily will help protect your delicate skin.
As most skin care professionals will tell you prevention is always the best when it comes to your skin. Summer can be a wonderful time to be out and about and our social calendars definitely feel a little more full. If you feel like your skin has changed or does not feel the same when it is warmer take the time to reach out to your AlumierMD professional. They would be more than happy to help you understand how the summer, heat and the pollution are affecting your skin. It will be most definitely time well spent.
