End-of-Summer Skin Care Regimen - Canton, MA

Ahhh…summer in New England! Fun in the sun, whether you are at the beach or in the mountains. But, summer is not so fun for your skin. Whether you spent your summer out in the elements or keeping cool in the air conditioning, your skin took a beating.  Humidity can make our skin oilier. Air conditioners and central air units can dry out our skin. And, don’t forget the sun! Chances are, even if you were vigilant with sunscreen and covering up between the hours of 10 and 2, you have some sun damage. Sun damage = early aging and no one wants that.

Now that the summer is wrapping up, it’s time to start ramping up your skin care regimen.  At home, look for products to correct damage…Vitamin C to correct sun damage, exfoliating products such as alpha hydroxyl acids to clean out clogged pores, extra hydration for skin that is dry. Also, with the upcoming change in seasons, most people may need to adjust the products they use. Consider switching to products that are more hydrating for the upcoming cold months.

Most importantly, call Dream Spa Medical to meet with one of our skin care specialists for a free consultation on what facial and new fall skin care routine would be best to refresh your skin after a long summer of fun. The O2 Lift and Hydrafacial are fan favorites for refreshing the skin. We even offer laser treatments to remove unwanted pigment. You don’t have to say goodbye to the summer memories, just goodbye to the damage!
