6 ways you can care for your skin this summer: Part 2

Summer is on the horizon, and we're just as excited to get out in the sun as you are. However, it's important to understand the strains this season puts on your skin and how to treat them. In part one of this series, we talked about wearing sunscreen, carefully removing hair and hydrating your skin. In part two, we'll discuss the final three ways you can better care for your skin this summer.

1. Treat your acne
Summer sweat, dirt and oils can get locked in your pores and cause breakouts. Treat your acne proactively by developing a skincare routine that clears your skin of pesky build ups. Look specifically for oil-free products, as Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Yale School of Medicine, told Allure magazine.

If you're already dealing with some annoying breakouts, Skin & Cosmetic Solutions offers the Omnilux Acne Treatment, a procedure that uses certain wavelengths of light to combat acne and the bacteria that causes it.

2. Cover up
The best way to guarantee that you won't get exposed to harmful sun rays is by covering up your body. Of course, wearing a lot of layers in the hot summer sun isn't ideal, so cover up strategically. For example, you can wear wide-brimmed hats at the beach that protect your face and some other parts of your body.

3. Take care of existing sun damage
If you've already experienced some sun damage, and have signs of it like wrinkles and age spots, you can still work to repair your skin. At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we offer a laser skin resurfacing treatment which can reverse the effects of excessive sun exposure, aging, pollutants and other factors.
