Too much fun in the sun?
Steps for glowing skin
for back to school or work.
Mid August and most of us will soon be starting back to school or work. Time to be proactive with Pink Avenue Dermatologist Developed Skin Care to show off a clear, healthy complexion. Here are four tips to help you rescue overexposed, summer-damaged skin and prepare to get back to the office or classroom.
KEEP SKIN CLEAN AND BALANCED.
Irritated or over exposed to sun skin needs to be kept clean. Irritated, damaged skin if exposed to dead skin cells, impurities, dust and pollution from the environment can take longer to heal. It’s important to cleanse every day to keep skin refreshed and pores clear from irritants. Exfoliating with a gentle daily peel can also help by preventing dead cells from clogging pores.
Salicylic Clean Face & Body Wash: A cleansing micro-peel that purifies pores and removes impurities while restoring moisture with 1% extra virgin coconut oil. Perfect for skin with uneven skin tone or prone to oiliness, breakouts.
Chamomile Clean Facial Cleanser: A soothing and hydrating cleanser with panthenol, peptides, and chamomile and ginger essential oils. Recommended for all skin types.
Dual Action Toner Pads: An exfoliant that uses a combination of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids to penetrate pores, removing dead cells and impurities while calming with botanical extracts.
Clearing Solution - Our favourite quick-fix for acne, quickly purifying skin and helping to reduce swelling.
NOURISH YOUR SKIN WITH HELPFUL VITAMINS
A healthy dose of the right nutrients balances and helps the skin to recover from a summer of too much sun exposure. Vitamins are an important part of great skin care and benefit the skin in different ways.
- Vitamin F helps replace fatty acids for a healthier skin barrier
- Vitamins C, E are excellent antioxidants that promote and protect overall skin health
- Vitamin Bs are also great for keeping skin smooth, supple, hydrated.
Green Tea Antioxidant Serum for Vitamin E: This nutrient-packed serum with Green Tea, Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid is excellent for calming inflammation while soothing and protective.
Hydra Soothe Corrective Serum - Vitamin E & F Instantly repairs the skin barrier for better hydration, plus protective antioxidants, regenerative vitamins E and F.
Skin Glow C Complex Serum - Vitamin C - a high potency Multi-C elixir that drenches skin in an infusion of powerful skin illuminating antioxidants. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (stable Vitamin C) and the potent Kakadu Plum, Ferulic Acid, Vitamin E, Phloretin, Astaxanthin, counter acts with advanced skin defence and skin strengthening protection from photo-aging and enviro aggressors.
Vita C Peptide Spray - everyday before serum or cream for a moisturizing, protective infusion of Vitamin C.
- PROTECT WITH ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants, which include all the vitamins, are excellent skin nutrients because they protect from further damage from
- UV light, blue light
- environmental pollution
- indoor and outdoor environments
Reactive free radicals attack and damage the skin barrier. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals before they can cause any damage. Sensitive, irritated, and damaged skin need antioxidants to protect while the skin barrier recovers it’s health.
Pink Avenue Skin Care formulated with active antioxidant ingredient called Lipochroman® is the strongest antioxidant on the market today. Lipochroman® protects the skin against
- carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen free radicals.
I recommend these Lipochroman®-containing products:
Hydra Soothe Corrective Serum
Triple Benefits Face Cream
Lip Love PIumper
Ultra Replenishing SPF 40
PROMOTE HEALTHY HABITS
Beyond skincare, there are many practices you can follow to keep skin healthy and clear.
- A healthy diet can help keep skin nourished
- regular exercise
- getting enough sleep can lower stress levels and reduce breakouts
- Always, make sure you wear a sunscreen when outdoors, especially if your skin is already sensitive or damaged.
