6 tips to protect your skin while having fun in the sun

6 ways to protect your skin while having fun in the sunLiving in western Colorado, with our 300+ days of sunshine, call on us to get outside and play.  Whether it’s a lazy float down the river, biking our amazing trails, or simply soaking up the sun by the pool, being outside is part of living here.   Here are 6 simple tips to help you live your life and love your skin at the same time!

  1. Wear a wide-brimmed hat.  Protecting your face and neck are essential for glowing skin.  Your facial skin is very sensitive and too much sun exposure will show in all the wrong ways.
  2. Wear a light-weight, long sleeve shirt.  Our poor arms seem to take the brunt of the sun.  Most of us go outside with a hat and something covering our shoulders, but we neglect to protect our arms and hands!  Choose a UV fabric designed for summer wear which will keep you cool while protecting your skin.
  3. Apply sunscreen the right way. Yes, it’s true.  Not all sunscreen is created equal, and often times, even good sunscreen isn’t applied correctly to provide optimal coverage. One shot glass full of spf is what is recommended for your body. Spray on SPF does not saturate the outer part of the skin, be sure to spray and rub in. #ISClinical Solar Eclipse 50 is what I recommend.  Contact me to order this wonderful product! When choosing an SPF only choose these ingredients: Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide for full UVA/UVB protection. We now know that chemical based SPF are damaging our coral reefs, so be mindful and do not choose any chemical based SPF.
  4. Be aware of glare. Wearing a hat won’t protect your skin from glare.  This is especially important when you are on the river or skiing.  If your playing on a reflective surface, pull double duty; wear sunscreen and a hat!
  5. Drink plenty of water.  Being hydrated won’t keep you from getting sunburned, but your skin needs hydration, especially when you are outside working up a sweat in the hot sun!
  6. Schedule a Custom-ized Zensation Facial.  This facial is individually customized to suit your current skin conditions and is sure to keep you skin looking fantastic, moisturized and radiant.  Book your facial today! Your skin will thank you. Or check out all my services to choose the right one for you.

 

Clogged Pores – What do I do?

Help I have clogged pores, what do I do?

This is a common question that I hear from every client with #acne. What is the best way to deal with blackheads and whiteheads?

First we must control the dead-cell accumulation and clear the follicle out. It is important that we do this together, this treatment requires at home care and an acne control facial.

Extractions are a necessary process in your treatment as well as salicylic, AHAS and enzymes in the form of peels. These help to loosen the dead cells on the skin’s surface which ease the extraction process.  The use of these and other solutions help to liquefy the solid oil accumulations in the pores and break up the masses thus improving the extraction process.

At home care is carefully monitored to make sure you are not excessively over drying your skin. There is a fine balance to finding the right products to use and many times we alternate them with active/resting products. Daily home care is the real key to  acne management and the application of mild AHAS, BHAS. Certain serums that I recommend also calm the skin and reduce the bacteria load.

Many times you will find that the clogged pores start loosening up and the count of whiteheads and blackheads is reduced. However, this is the time to continue treatment for long term success.

Fun fact: Rose essential oil has the highest known vibrational frequency, which is why they’re so powerfully purifying and healing for our mind and body. Among all the flowers in the world, Rose has the oldest history with fossilized remains estimated to be over 35 million years old.

Attitude is Everything

 ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING

We hear about this all of our lives but what can assist you in feeling better about body mind and spirit? How to be healthy-looking.

Eat healthy, choose nutritional food that builds your cell health. Good food is regenerating.

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Be sure to include fiber and protein.

Drink to hydrate.  Infuse your filtered water with herbs, fruits and vegetables. It makes water taste so much better and you will want more of it throughout the day. Don’t reach for sweet drinks or high fat coffees.

Get moving. Walk up that flight of stairs or around the block from your parked car. But better yet, set aside 30 minutes outside by yourself to balance and walk with a purpose. This is lovely way  to regenerate yourself during your lunch break.

Be merry. Remember to have positive self talk. Look in the mirror and say “I love ME” You are an amazing gift to all of those around you. Self love is the first step in learning to be happy and share that happiness with others.

Rest! Your body needs rest to be healthy. If you constantly feel tired, it might be your body telling you to re-charge your batteries. Sleep a minimum of 6 hours and enjoy good nutrition.

Commit to your self. This is the first step in changing your attitude.

What is an AHA, BHA or Retinol

Learning more about what AHA, BHA or Retinols

AHA  stands for alpha hydroxy acid. Acids in this category are: Lactic, glycolic, citric and malic are the most widely used AHAS. These acids offer many benefits to the skin which include improving the skin with hydration, reduction of P. acnes bacteria, reduction of dead skin cells (hyperkeratinization) inhibition of dark spots (Melasma or hyperpigmentation) and collagen stimulation .

Beta hydroxy acid BHA is mostly salicylic acid. The same thing found in common aspirin. It has the ability to dissolve clogged pores in the follicles and will help reduce the occurrence of acne breakouts. It is also is anti-inflammatory.

Retinoids are all forms of vitamin A: retinoic acid, retinaldehyde and retinol being the most commonly used #retinol. Retinol is used at home and will help improve the skin health. It is best combined in well formulated creams and will boost collagen production and improve skin discoloration.

Skin Protection and Why We Need SPF

UV Radiation is the primary cause of free radicals in the skin. You have two types that you should be concerned about UVA/UVB.

The UVB rays stand for BURN, you will feel these rays. Unfortunately, one of the most damaging rays UVA you don’t feel. UVA can penetrate through clouds or glass. Riding in your car or sitting by a sunny window will give you damage that you won’t feel. Thus is why most people have more sun damage on the left side of their face, it is exposed next to the window while driving. UVA rays are present year round. You will not see the damage from these rays for several years. They also penetrate the skin 30-40 times deeper than UVB rays.

How do we protect our skin from this type of damage? Choose IS Clinical SPF 50, it is a broad spectrum SPF that protects against UVA/UVB rays. This formula is oil free and vitamin E enriched making it a perfect solution for all skin types especially oily/acne skin.

Be sure to apply your SPF 30 minutes before you go out and saturate your outer part of your skin the epidermis.

Why Use Active or Resting Products for your Skin Care Routine

Why would you use an active skin care product vs a resting or calming product?

The heart of #sanitas skin care is tested and proven skincare routines lies in the concept of “exercise and rest”. Sanitas skin care utilize alpha hydroxy acids to encourage skin renewal and strengthen the skin’s barrier. As the skin grows stronger, Sanitas products graduate in intensity and continue to elevate results to prevent your progress from stalling.

How do we rest the skin?

A resting phase and strengthening phase are both necessary to build continuous skin strength. On resting days, exercising products are eliminated and only pH neutral products are used to keep the skin’s barrier intact Limiting the use of exercising products to 3-4 days per week allows the skin to recover and regenerate.

How do we nourish the skin?

Just like the rest of your body, your skin needs daily nourishment to strengthen and remain healthy.  By following a program of exercise and rest, the skin is optimally primed to maximize the utilization of topical and internal nutrients the Sanitas collection features biogenic nutrition for topical use and three targeted supplements for internal support.

Please contact Jo Ann at Skin Deep Clinical Skin Care and Laser Center to schedule your consultation. Learn more about #sanitas skin care and how to optimize your skin care routine.
