Follow These Tips For a Radiant Summer Glow

Summer is back, and with it comes dull, lackluster skin. Between the heat, the dry weather, and the long hours in the sun, our skin can start to look and feel a little rough. We should think of our skin like a plant; in some seasons, it needs a bit more love and care than in others to keep it fresh and healthy. To help you reach your glowing summer skin goals, the skincare experts at Desert Med Aesthetic in Indian Wells, CA, compiled a list of tips and tricks to help you achieve that radiant summer glow for this summer and those to come.

1. Choose a Moisturizer With These Hydrated Ingredients

The first step to combating dry skin is to moisturize. Moisturizer helps combat transepidermal water loss by repairing the skin barrier at a deeper level. A compromised skin barrier is what leads to dry skin. When our skin is firm, it’s plumper and dewier. The following skincare ingredients that can help moisturize the skin include:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Ceramides
  • Glycerin
  • Squalane

At Desert Med Aesthetics, our skincare experts offer the most advanced technology in their skincare line with SkinCeuticals. Their top sellers are tailored to help you hydrate and protect your skin from early signs of aging caused by dry weather and the sun.

2. Please Exfoliate Responsibly

Gentle exfoliation is a must in any healthy skincare routine. By way of chemical exfoliators or physical scrubs, this process helps encourage cell turnover. Removing the dead skin cells causing our skin to look dull improves our skin’s texture and allows the other products in our skincare routine to penetrate deeper for optimal repair and a beautiful, healthy glow.

At Desert Med Aesthetics, we offer several methods to gently but effectively exfoliate your skin:

  • Dermaplaning– Dermaplaning uses a surgical-grade blade to gently remove the uppermost layer of cells and vellus hairs — also known as peach fuzz— from the surface of your skin. This treatment can be done within a thirty minutes session, and you’ll leave our office positively glowing.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are designed to improve the skin texture on the face and neck. During the treatments, a peel in the form of a gel will be applied to your skin. The peel will effectively exfoliate the dead and damaged layers away from the skin’s surface, revealing healthy new skin below the surface.

3. Treat Yourself to a Facial

A great way to hit the refresh button on our skin is to have a much-needed facial. The DiamondGlow facial is as luxurious as it sounds. Its 3-in-1 technology can effectively exfoliate dead skin cells and extra impurities away with a high-powered suction and infuse SkinMedica Pro-Infusion serums into the skin to treat and rejuvenate.
