Summer is in full swing here in NYC, and while we’re certainly loving the warm weather, there’s someone who might not be so happy - your skin. While we’re happy to be shedding layers and embracing the salt air, summertime can lead to changes in your skin, from more oil and buildup to dehydration and sun damage. Luckily, your favorite beauty experts at BeautyFix Medspa know the secrets to enjoying your summer and keeping your skin healthy and refreshed. And because we love ya, we’re sharing our TOP 5 tips below (we know, that’s why we’re your fave ;) )
This gentle yet powerful chemical peel is #1 on our list for many reasons. The SkinFix: VI Peel works to remove the top layer of dead skin, revealing new, youthful skin underneath. It’s a treatment we recommend here in our clinics as a first step, as it enhances the results of other treatments. The peeling process isn’t too harsh, so you won’t subject your skin to damage in the harsh sun, but it still removes built-up debris and clogged pores. Combine this treatment with our SkinFix: Series, a combination of six skin treatments for soft and supple skin that is always refreshed and ready for a summer of adventure!
Wear Your SPF
Hopefully we don’t have to be the one to break this to you, but SPF should be a part of your everyday routine. However, a good sunscreen can be the most beneficial thing you do for your skin all summer. SPF can prevent early signs of aging, skin cancer, and other forms of skin damage that are difficult to correct. Our favorite brand here at BeautyFix clinics is skinbetter - they’re oil free, offer broad-spectrum protection and some even have a tinted option, so you can wear less makeup and let your skin breathe! They also act as a moisturizer, so you can use less products and avoid drying out your skin with sunscreen. Use it last in your routine to ensure you get the best protection possible.
Sunscreen is important, and it’s likely you will be sweating more during these months. Both serve key functions, however, they’ll definitely clog your pores and make your skin feel heavy and oily. Combat that by upping your exfoliating game: you’ll reduce chances of acne and keep your skin feeling fresh, but it’s important you don’t overdo it. Too much exfoliation can chafe and chap your skin, which definitely isn’t a fun feeling in the heat. This is especially true if you’ve gotten a sunburn, as exfoliation will damage the skin further before it’s had a chance to heal. Our experts say that exfoliating with a gentle scrub once or twice a week will give you the benefits without leaving your skin rough and cracked.
When it comes to keeping your skin luminous in the summer, there’s no better treatment than SkinFix: Hydrafacial. The three-step routine first exfoliates your skin, then uses its signature Vortex Fusion to extract dirt and debris from your pores, and finishes with infusing your newly-clean skin with vitamins and nutrients custom to your skin needs. And of course, who could forget the signature hydration? Beat the heat and moisturize to the max with this water-ful facial. Plus, Hydrafacial is safe for all skin types, tones and textures, and with no downtime or healing process, it’s perfect for your jam-packed summer plans.
Get Your Whole Body Involved
Be honest, when you were reading these tips, did you think we meant just your face? Think big picture, babe! Your skin is your largest organ, and make sure you don’t miss any of it. Sunscreen is a must for all areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun, and that exfoliation doesn’t stop at your neckline. We love sugar scrubs to help exfoliate your whole body and alleviate sweat. As for our treatments, show your booty some love with BootyFix: Hydrafacial and BootyFix: DSE Peel + Microneedling to make sure your bikini body matches your beautiful face!
