Freckles from Sun Damage

You know the importance of a good sunscreen, you know how to apply and use the sunscreen….but what happens that one time you forgot this      summer, and you ended up with sunburn?  Or you just got a “tan” not even a burn (i.e. tan = skin damage)

Unfortunately, sun damage isn’t only skin-deep. And your skin has a very long memory when it comes to sun exposure.  The UV radiation from  the sun can change the actual DNA of your skin cells and cause lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and even cancer.   Here are some tips to minimize the   long term damage and even help repair your skin:

1)      MOST important:  Burn no more.  Protect yourself.  This is always the best way to stop accumulated damage.   Use a good sunscreen  faithfully every day, year round, even on cloudy days.  Be especially vigilant on days that you will be outdoors.  If you are around water or direct sun, reapply your sunscreen periodically.  Our sunscreen is the best broad spectrum sunscreen on the market today.  To maximize the sunscreen’s protection, apply it 30 minutes before exposure.

2)      To smooth out your skin, and get rid of those dead skin cells that accumulate, Exfoliate with a good chemical exfoliator, like the A-Cute Derm rejuvenating lotion.  An non-buffered glycolic acid.  Call or email to find the right strength for your skin.  Bear in mind, that you must use a sunscreen in conjunction with any glycolic acid to protect your skin.

3)      If you find you have acquired brown spots, use a good skin bleach like the Pro-C Skin Lightening Crème.  An extremely effective formulation combining AHA’s  Salicylic Acid, Hydroquinone, Bearberry and Kojic Acid.  It goes in deep to  get to the root of the discoloration.  This works much better than Hydroquinone “only” formulations.

4)      Arm your skin with antioxidants and vitamins.   We have a number of products that will heal your skin and actually can reverse some sun damage. Topping the list is the A-Cute Derm Grape Seed Serum.  This natural antioxidant has the highest bio-availability in the industry.  It enhances dermal Vitamin A performance and reduces the premature destruction of Vitamin C.  It also stabilizes collagen and elastin while protecting dermal connective tissue.  It will repair damage from the sun.

We hope you have a lot of “fun in the sun” this summer.  Just remember to practice “safe sun” and protect your skin every day to look and feel your best year round.
