Say Good-Bye to the Summer Sun’s Harmful Effects With SkinPen™!

by

The summer is almost here, and it will be time to kiss the days of sun-kissed frolicking and tanning goodbye for now. We know that you’ve enjoyed your time in the sun, whether you were outside gardening, exercising, or simply soaking up some rays on the porch or at the beach with friends. But how has your skin fared in light of the summertime sunshine?

While there are many benefits of receiving some exposure to sunshine including a boost in Vitamin D and endorphins, there are quite a few harmful aspects that our skin is absorbing. Short-term effects include the development of freckles and rashes, sunburns, reddening pain, and, in severe cases, blistering and 2nd degree burns. On the long-term scale, exposure to the sun and its ultraviolet rays can accelerate skin aging, making it look dry, dull, wrinkled, and loose. You can also develop age spots on your skin, and the changes that occur in the skin cells could possibly lead to skin cancer.

If you’re experiencing any short-term or long-term effects from the sun this summer and wish for your skin to look impeccable for the upcoming fall season, there’s help! We provide SkinPen™ treatments to help make your skin look naturally luminous and youthful!
