The summer months in Boise are hot, happening and DRY! The increased water loss from the body can not only lead to dehydration, but can cause skin to feel irritated, red and parched. In addition to keeping hydrated by drinking plenty of water, get a leg up on maintaining your healthiest skin this summer by requesting an appointment at Boise Dermatology & Medspa to get an effective treatment plan from Dr. Brooks. For tips on keeping your skin healthy, protected and hydrated in the dry Boise summer, read on.
Take Your Vitamins
While eating plenty of high-antioxidant fruits and vegetables can help you keep hydrated and healthy, you can go a step further by applying nature’s goodness topically to your skin. Our choice Vitamin C serum for skin, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic® with 15% L-ascorbic Acid, delivers advanced environmental protection. This serum also improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, addresses loss of firmness, and brightens the skin’s complexion. It’s been clinically proven to reduce combined oxidative damage from free radicals generated by UV, ozone, and diesel exhaust by up to 41%! This paraben-free product, ideal for normal, dry, and sensitive skin types, is one you’ll want to have in your arsenal this summer!
As your skin fights to breathe through the dry heat this summer, you’ll want to give it some help. SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier (H.A.) is a multi-functional corrective serum to help amplify the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. The result? Visible improvement in the appearance of skin’s firmness, smoothness, and plumpness. Hyaluronic Acid also has antioxidant properties that allow it to act as a shield against free radicals like pollution and other environmental irritants. It’s also great for soothing sunburned skin, restoring your skin’s natural moisture while acting as a barrier against any further damage. Talk about a practical addition to your summer facial regimen!
Lipids are your skin’s natural fats and play an essential role in maintaining the strength of the skin’s protective barrier, which holds moisture, protects the skin from damage, keeps out impurities, and facilitates the skin’s natural repair process. During the summer, skin is more susceptible to lipid depletion, compromising its natural protective barrier, resulting in visible signs of accelerated aging as skin loses its ability to effectively self-repair. SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti-aging cream that will refill cellular lipids and nourish dry skin. It contains the first 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant ratio to help restore the skin’s external barrier and support natural self-repair, while potently nourishing aging skin for improvement in the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance. You can get this amazing product (a $128 value) with the purchase of CE Ferulic and H.A. Intensifier!*
