BE SAFE IN THE SUN!
Be sure to wear your sunscreen everyday especially during the WINTER months! The sun is still out and if your are partaking in great winter outdoor activities like skiing and snowboarding, the reflection off of the snow increasing your exposure to the sun's rays.
If you have sun damaged skin, have had skin cancers, and/or hyperpigmentation, remember the best sunscreen is a broad spectrum chemical block or a product with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide.
The majority of sunscreens protect against the UVB wavelength of light which is the one that burns the skin, leaving you exposed to a portion of UVA light that goes deeper into the skin and can cause cellular damage, collagen breakdown, and hyperpigmentation. This is the reason why you can wear a SPF30 and still get color. Most of the medical skincare products contain these key ingredients which I always recommend.
Below is a great site to check daily, they also have an interactive app that can be downloaded to smart phones to get a daily update of the UV index.
In addition to the right sunblock, be sure to wear an antioxidant such as Vitamin C serum which helps to fight off oxidative damage from the sun.
Continue doing your skin treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Many people tend to overlook the basic treatments when thinking about skin care. In my 20 years as a Dermatology Nurse, doing the basics are what will keep a skin youthful and healthy. And can be done on a maintenance basis throughout the year. During the summer months it is best to maintain the health of the skin, while in the fall and winter months we up treatment levels to stimulate skin and repair previous damage.
So plan to start on a regimen this winter that is repair oriented or continue if you are already following a medical skin care program. Reparative sequence of treatment is doing a microdermabrasion or chemical peel or combination of both once every 2 weeks for a series of at least five treatments. This stimulates and begins the natural repair effect that takes place in the skin. Don't forget to use your medical skin care products everyday to treat the cells of the skin while you are taking care of the outmost layer through in-office treatments!
I look forward to seeing you for a consult, treatment, or both!
