1. For daytime, layer a vitamin C serum underneath a moisturizer with a built-in broad-spectrum sunscreen. Broad spectrum means it protects against both UVA & UVB rays. A vitamin C serum enhances sunscreen because it's an antioxidant that helps fight free radical damage (such as from the sun).
2. Use at-home skin care products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids- especially Glycolic and Lactic Acid. Glycolic is a superstar ingredient that helps repair leathery, sun damaged skin since it has re-texturizing properties, while Lactic Acid helps lighten discolored skin due to the sun. You may also opt to invest in getting a professional chemical peel in Glycolic or Lactic Acid at your local reputable spa or salon.
3. Invest in at-home professional-grade skin care tools such as Microdermabrasion. It's a powerful tool that offers a higher level of exfoliation to help salvage sun damaged-skin to polish and resurface the skin, helping to deliver a re-texturized, smoother complexion.
Trophy Skin offers professional-grade at-home microdermabrasion devices that effectively exfoliate the skin to help your fight against sun damaged skin. They offer a range of microderm devices from standard to travel-sized for your convenience and the prices are very reasonable and will actually save you a lot of money compared to a series of microdermabrasion treatments at a spa or salon.
Remember to put these tips into practice all year round- not just during the summer months. By doing so, you will preserve your skin and dramatically slow down the aging process.
