How to get your face summer-ready
Summer is here, and it’s time to put your best face forward. The winter months can be harsh on your skin, so there are many things you can do to improve your chances of showing off that fresh and healthy complexion. Skin care is a major concern for many individuals, especially during the spring and summer months, and are searching for ways to revive and rejuvenate their skin from aging.
There are many anti-aging products and non-surgical procedures to choose from to help reduce the unwanted signs of aging and prepare your skin for the outdoors during the warmer months.
Cold weather, diet, and sun exposure can contribute to the aging process. For some, it can be a challenge to get your skin back into shape. There are many solutions to getting your face sunshine-ready including botox, juvederm, the Neocutis skin care line, and a variety of facial treatments.
Botox Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical treatment for men and women to improve moderate to severe frown lines. Botox relaxes the facial muscles, which cause unwanted wrinkles and creases due to aging, gravity, sun exposure, or a result of facial muscle action. This prescription medicine is injected directly into the targeted muscles and used to temporarily improve fine lines and wrinkles. Ideal areas treated include the area between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. The advantages of botox are obvious, requiring no surgery and no recovery.
Juvederm is the smooth gel filler administered by your doctor to smooth away facial wrinkles around your mouth and nose instantly. Everyone ages differently and Juvederm may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, Juvederm is used to smooth-away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. Fortunately, with just one treatment, you get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
The popular Neocutis skin care line is known for its ability to achieve visible, lasting results while diminishing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles and healing damaged skin to provide a refreshed look.
We all know that it is essential to keep your skin protected from damaging UV rays, but applying an SPF and sunscreen isn’t enough to keep your skin clear of blotchy spots and wrinkles. It is important to take these preventive measures to maintain your flawless complexion. Remember to keep yourself hydrated, take your vitamins and carry sun block in your beach bags.
