Summertime is the perfect excuse to take a breather from your everyday stress.
But while you focus on some much-needed self-care this summer, one thing you can’t skip on is your skincare. Our skin is at risk from dangerous UV rays as soon as we head out in the sun – even on a cloudy day – and the damage can be life-lasting. Exposure to UV radiation produces free radicals that destroy collagen molecules, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots, and can damage the DNA in our skin cells, increasing our risk of cancer.
At Ooh La La, the motto we live by when it comes to skincare is “Prevent, Protect and Reverse.” By preventing damage with SPF-50 Superscreen products, protecting your skin with medical-grade products, and reversing the signs of aging with Ooh La La’s skin-renewing treatments, you can hold on to your youthful glow for many more summers to come.
Here are some great summertime treatments and products offered at Ooh La La:
If your skin feels dry and looks dull, DiamondGlow’s next-level skin rejuvenating technology can restore its natural radiance and even its tone and texture. The three-step process starts with a gentle exfoliation to remove damaged skin cells before deep cleaning your skin’s surface and pores. Once pores are open and receptive, the signature DiamondGlow wand infuses the skin with SkinMedica®’s nourishing Pro-Infusion serums that hydrate, plump and smooth your skin. Almost immediately, you’ll notice a dewier complexion, and over the next 72 hours, see continued improvements in fine lines, dryness and roughness.
Microneedling and PRP
Ninety percent of the visible signs of aging are caused by the sun’s rays, which break down the body’s levels of collagen – the protein that provides the foundation for firm, healthy skin. With microneedling performed by Ooh La La, tiny micro-channels are created in the skin, kick-starting its natural healing process and forcing it to produce more collagen. As collagen levels are restored, fine lines are filled in, pore sizes shrink, and dark spots lighten. The treatment is even more effective when PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is infused deep into the skin, putting your own healing cells’ rejuvenating skills to work to reverse the effects of sun damage.
Daily Skincare: LUMIVIVE®
Once you undergo one of Ooh La La’s skin-renewing treatments, your skin can better absorb and benefit from skincare products. And one of the best products to prevent damage and protect your skin is the two-step LUMIVIVE System from SkinMedica®.
The LUMIVIVE DAY Damage Defense Serum provides a barrier against UV rays during the day, while the LUMIVIVE Night Revitalize Repair Complex works overnight to recharge your skin cells. When used together, the system rehydrates dull, dry skin, improves its tone and texture, and restores a glowing, youthful appearance.
Daily Sun Protection: Colorescience Products
Our favorite, simple way to incorporate the RIGHT sunscreens into your daily routine is with our favorite products from Colorescience®. It’s a three-in-one makeup, skin care, and sun care product that works to not only protect, but treat and prevent sun damage, premature aging, redness, fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots.
