June 21st has passed, which means the time for summer fun in the sun is finally here. While you may already be beach-body ready, the current condition of your skin may be another story. Although the natural aging process and sun exposure usually have the most impact on the appearance of your skin, they aren’t the only aspects to be concerned with.
Your skin cells are constantly dying no matter what season of the year it is. Exfoliating your skin once or twice a week helps remove dead cells and allows healthier cells to come to the surface for a more rejuvenated appearance.
The great weather that Southern California offers means there are plenty of opportunities to lounge poolside or take a trip to the beach. Whether you choose shaving, waxing, or lasering, it’s best to wear loose clothing to prevent ingrown hairs. As an added helper, you can use products that contain glycolic acid to keep irritation bumps from forming.
Having acne on your body is no better than your face, especially when your body is more exposed during summer. While a combination of exfoliating and using a cleanser that contains benzoyl peroxide works best for most people, a blue light laser may work best if you have sensitive skin or severe acne.
