Our primary mission at Skin Care Institute is helping you achieve your most beautiful skin. But guess what? You can’t have beautiful skin without healthy skin. So, how exactly do you get healthy skin?
Drum roll, please…
…Your first step is wearing sunscreen every day, rain or shine!
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, so it’s a fitting time to extoll the benefits of sunscreen because this simple tool dramatically reduces your risk of skin cancer. But if reducing your skin cancer risk doesn’t motivate you to wear sunscreen daily, maybe these tidbits will:
An estimated 90% of your skin’s aging is due to UV exposure, not age, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Translation: You have more control over your skin’s appearance than you may think. The good news is that it’s never too late to halt sun damage. Your first step is incorporating an SPF of at least 30 into your daily skin care routine. Our medical-grade brands, including SkinMedica®, Colorescience®, EltaMD®, Eminence Organic Skin Care, Latisse®, Mixture, Revision Skincare® and SkinCeuticals®, make it easy by offering several types of sunscreen to suit every possible skin type and condition imaginable. Whether you need a tinted and mattifying formula or a super hydrating serum, we’ll help you choose the perfect products that not only protect but also replenish and pamper your skin with peptides and protective antioxidants.
Sun damage is reversible.
If you’re doing everything you can now to avoid further sun damage but are bummed out because you can’t go back in a time machine to prevent the sunburns you got in grade school, cheer up! You CAN reverse sun damage with professional skin resurfacing treatments. Thanks to modern technology, we can remove damaged skin cells and trigger the growth of vibrant new collagen and elastin. Our skin rejuvenation treatments here at Skin Care Institute include Lumecca IPL photofacials, Clear and Brilliant®, Fraxel Dual Resurfacing and SkinMedica chemical peels.
Sunscreen helps your skin do what skin does best.
When your skin is busy healing itself from sun damage, it expends a whole lot of energy, making it appear tired and dull. Conversely, when you take care of your skin, sheltering it from the sun with regular sunscreen application, what you are essentially doing is conserving your skin’s vital energy and freeing it up to do other things, like creating new collagen and fending off free-radicals! So by protecting your skin’s health, you are simultaneously enhancing its beauty.
Here at Skin Care Institute, we are absolutely passionate about bringing out your best skin, and we can’t wait to help you do just that! To learn more about our skin rejuvenation treatments and products, please call 918.948.9639 or request a consultation online today!
