5 Ways to Prep Your Skin for Summer

Summer is almost here, and as eager as we are to soak up as much sun as we can, our skin needs a little extra protection before we do so. The #1 thing you can do for your skin–not only in the summer but year-round–is protecting it from the sun. Too much sun exposure can cause a variety of unwanted skin changes including hyperpigmentation and early aging. At Ooh La La, we have the treatments you need to set your skin up for success this summer.

Here are our top 5 ways to get your summer glow on while keeping your skin’s health in mind:

  1. Readdress Your Skincare Regimen

Make sure protecting your skin is part of your daily routine. We carry a variety of products designed to make this quick and easy without overhauling the routine that is already working for you. Colorescience has many non-chemical products that are SPF 30 and greater to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Who wouldn’t love makeup that is healthy for your skin and protects you from sun damage?! Even Up by Colorescience is the absolute BEST product to use in the summer because it’s a 3-in-1 by protecting, correcting and evening out skin. The Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen is the ultimate friend to your skin and is so easy to carry with you all day to reapply SPF. You can schedule an appointment to learn more about these products and even try them on!

  1. Face Forward with Facials

The sun is one of the biggest causes of aging skin. A little rejuvenation will go a long way towards fighting the effects and getting your skin back to a great place. We love our DiamondGlow and chemical peels for this! DiamondGlow simultaneously exfoliates, extracts and treats your skin, infusing skin with SkinMedica’s pro-infusion serums. Chemical peels work by accelerating skin exfoliation and refresh your skin and improve your skin’s tone, texture, and overall appearance. We offer a range of different strength chemical peels to address different levels of skin imperfections.

  1. Smooth It Out with BOTOX

Squinting into the sun can cause frown lines, crow’s feet and deep forehead wrinkles. BOTOX is a great, quick treatment to address those areas and prevent them from becoming deeper.

  1. Refresh with Laser Genesis

Speaking of fine lines, Laser Genesis addresses those along with acne scars, uneven skin texture, rosacea and redness and sagging skin. Our Laser Genesis treatment is a fantastic noninvasive, relaxing option for targeting these conditions.

  1. Make it Even More Powerful with Microneedling

Microneedling is the perfect quick, versatile treatment option for busy summer schedules. It addresses a variety of skin issues including hyperpigmentation, scars, sun damage and stretch marks. It kickstarts your collagen production, making your skin look and act younger. And the microchannels it creates allow your skincare products to penetrate at a deeper level, so they become even more effective. We love combining our microneedling treatments with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to further amplify the natural healing process and promote quick recovery.

Our Ooh La La healthy aging and wellness experts can help you find the perfect skincare products and treatments to set you up for success this season. Schedule an appointment, so we can start your customized summer skin routine today! Give us a call at (618) 288-9117.
