Skin is your biggest fashion accessory during the hot, humid summer weather. Skimpy tees, sun dresses, shorts, mini’s, swimsuits and sandals expose more skin than at any time during the year. Feet and toes are set free too …but that’s a whole other blog. To keep your skin looking great all summer long, you’ve got to provide a little TLC.
#1 T: Take the ‘touch’ test by lightly running your hands over your shoulders and upper back,
the backs of your arms, the backs of your thighs, legs and over your feet. Remember these normally out-of-sight areas can be visible to others. Check for bumps, rough or scaly skin.
(If a mole, unusual growth or raised lesion is tender or painful to the touch, check in a mirror to see if it’s discolored or flaky… and if it looks suspicious see your dermatologist.)
#2 L: Layer a film of dermHA’s lactic acid exfoliating body gel on rough, scaly areas. The leave-in gel penetrates and helps to gently lift dead cells while smoothing skin on elbows, knees and feet. It also helps to unroofs and lighten blemishes on the shoulders, chest and back revealing a softer, smoother, clearer looking skin.
#3 C: Cleanse your skin morning and especially at night to remove dirt and grime as well as dead cells, sweat and oils that are naturally excreted every day.
Calm, cover and clothe sun stressed skin with a light film of dermHA’s Therapeutic crème. Therapeutic Crème is loaded with moisture soaked hyaluronic acid to keep skin soft and smooth; arnica, aloe and calendula to calm and lutein to help protect the skin from sundamage.
**Remember to use sunscreen on any area of the body that is exposed to direct sun. Reapply as necessary, especially on the face, earlobes, shoulders, arms back and chest.
