It is always hard to come back from the summer holidays and get back to work. But work isn’t the only thing on my mind- it’s time to get my skin ready for the fall. Our skin changes with the seasons and so should your skin care regimen. Post summer is the ideal time to lighten sun spots, soften rough skin and to aim to reverse sun damage.
Let’s look at some important facts when it comes to reversing sun damage. Sun exposure depletes collagen which functions to support our skin and is essential for skin firmness, elasticity and protection. Exposure to UVA and UVB rays promotes early ageing.
- Sun Damaged Skin
Home treatments such as glycolic acid creams and lotions can help diminish problems created by hyperpigmentation. Antioxidants are essential as their reserve has been depleted fighting off past UV exposure. MZ Skin Brighten & Perfect Vitamin C Serum works wonders to correct pigmentation problems. When damage is more extensive, it is time to seek professional help.
- Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
After the summer, skin can become rough and dull. Exfoliation helps reveal the smooth skin underneath and will help improve absorption of your skin products.
- Keep Wearing your Sunscreen
Sunscreen is important all year round. UVB rays from the sun cause visible changes in your skin causing you to tan and become red. In addition to this, harmful, unseen UVA rays cause damage and are responsible for ageing. This means even on cloudy and rainy days, our skin is exposed. Prevention is essential to all skin care regimens.
After drying out your skin from sun, sea and pools, it is imperative to help your skin recover with hydration. Give your skin a little boost with hydrating masks.
I am so excited to announce the launch of my new Instant Clarity Refining Radiance & Renewal mask this month. This deeply exfoliating and hydrating mask is perfect for treating sun damaged skin and brightening tired, dull skin.

I created this mask because of the constant struggle I face with pigmentation and dull skin. I get so many questions from friends, family, and patients, asking me what the solution is to this problem and I am so happy to finally share Radiance & Renewal with everyone. I hope you love it as much as I do!
