Skin Care Treatments to Prepare Your Skin for Summer

Exfoliate—Exfoliating is one of the best things you can do for your skin. By removing layers of dead skin cells, exfoliating can keep your skin rejuvenated all summer long, as long as you are consistent about exfoliating.
Don’t underestimate sunscreen—Sunscreen is one of the most important aspects of a skin care routine, especially in the summer months! At North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, we recommend the SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense SPF 30 or the Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35.
Try a chemical peel—One of the best Scottsdale skin care treatments for the summer is a chemical peel. A chemical peel will correct your skin tone and make your skin firmer. Chemical peels will also stimulate collagen production and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, especially those around the mouth and eyes.
Cut down on oils—In the summer, it is important to make sure that your products do not have an oil base. Look for products that say “sheer” or “light” to prevent against any unnecessary shine on your skin.
Increase your vitamin intake—Vitamin A is especially necessary in the summer to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol (vitamin A) will stimulate new collagen production, making your skin look younger and firmer for the summer!
