As we head out of summer and enter fall in New York City, it’s time for our BeautyFix Experts to check-in: #SkinCheck. As much as we all love summer sun and fun, your skin and the sun aren’t friends. UV rays are able to penetrate the deepest layers of your skin, accelerating the aging process and increasing your risk for skin cancer. There is good news, though, and that’s that we have a fix for it! Since you can’t stay inside your whole life, here’s some Fixes to get back to your good ol’ glow.
Keep Up With the SPF!
Repeat after us: I will keep wearing my sunscreen even if it is not summer. Even if the sun seems like it’s going into hibernation and the fall clouds start to roll in, you can still be exposed to harmful UV rays, which can cause melanoma. SkinFact 101: You should be wearing sunscreen every day, no matter what the weather. Sunscreen doesn’t just protect against burns, it also prevents wrinkles and keeps your skin’s texture youthful and healthy. We recommend sunbetter SHEER SPF 70 Sunscreen Lotion from our friends at skinbetter. It’s oil free and can be worn under your makeup ( ‘cause it doubles as a primer! Whoa!)
Try Light Therapy
We know, we know: it seems counterintuitive to treat sun damage with more light exposure. BUT - hear us out. Tighten pores, boost collagen, and reduce sun spots with IPL, or Intense Pulse Light therapy, for your face or décolletage and Laser Genesis. IPL at BeautyFix inflicts the body’s natural healing response, which boosts collagen production to regenerate skin tissue and leave you with refreshed, smooth skin. (Link post of IPL on collarbones) Laser Genesis procedure helps to diminish redness and sun damage on the skin, erase fine lines and wrinkles, and boosts your collagen production for supple post-sun skin.
Keep Your Skin A-Peeling!
Sometimes your skin needs a hard reboot. After all, your skin’s been through a lot this summer - between burns, peeling, sweat and dried out skin, it’s high time for a total rejuvenation. Cue the chemical peels! Book a salon getaway to slough off the dead and dry layers of your skin that have overstayed their summer vacation. Chemical peels, especially the VI Peel, can help lessen hyperpigmentation and reduce sunspots.
Book a Fall Facial
As you unwind from your #hotgirlsummer activities, make some time to take care of your skin! If you’d like to bring a little allure into your autumn, you’ll love a date with DiamondGlow. Its diamond-tipped microdermabrasion tool is perfect for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation. You’ll be glowing again in no time! Another signature treatment, the Hydrafacial combines three important skin needs in just one 45 minute treatment. Exfoliation, extraction and hydration in under an hour? This water-ful facial will remove all of the old layers of skin and extract whatever’s been hanging out in your pores. Finally, Hydrafacial will replace those unwanted layers with, you guessed it, hydration! Ask for a special Booster during your treatment to address your specific skin concerns. We recommend one with retinol; even if you use one at home, prescription retinoids from estheticians are more effective. Retinol is a key ingredient to help smooth out rough, sun-damaged skin and help cell regrowth.
