5 Reasons to Consider SkinCeuticals for Sun Damage

5 Reasons to Consider SkinCeuticals for Sun Damage

Ultraviolet (UV) light is the component of sunlight that’s roughest on your skin. In Texas, the amount of UV peaks around the summer solstice in late June, so the cooler months are the perfect time to consider treatment for the cumulative effects of sun damage on your skin. 

UV light accelerates the factors that cause your skin to show the characteristic signs of getting older, a process called photoaging. In Southlake, Granbury, and the surrounding areas of Texas, look to the aesthetics team at Radiance Wellness MediSpa for help in reversing the signs of skin aging. 

Dr. Carrie L. Morris and her team proudly offer medical-grade products from SkinCeuticals, a full-featured and customizable line of skin care solutions to help repair and reverse the effects that UV light has on your skin.  

Signs of photoaging

Perhaps the best-known effect of photoaging is sun spots, clumps of skin pigment that form dark spots in response to excess UV exposure. Also called age spots and liver spots, freckles are another form of the same condition. These changes in skin pigmentation break up the smooth appearance of youthful-looking skin. 

However, this is far from the only aging process that UV light encourages. You can develop spider veins on your cheeks, chest, and nose as well as overall red flushing, again leading to uneven blotches that create spotty skin tone. 

Your skin’s texture can also suffer. Often a result of dryness, skin gets rough as UV light begins to transform the middle layers of your skin. That’s right. Components of UV light penetrate your skin and cause photoaging below the surface. 

Collagen and elastin tissue in the middle layer suffer. In turn, your skin loses elasticity. It can no longer support skin on the outer layers, and you see fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. 

5 reasons to try SkinCeuticals for sun damage

One of the advantages of the SkinCeuticals line is how its products directly attack the effects of photoaging as well as offer up a terrific preventive treatment to limit future sun damage.

1. Sunscreens

SkinCeuticals delivers with everyday broad spectrum sunscreens that block the UV light responsible for sun damage. There are formulations for every skin type with sun protection factors (SPF) of 30 and 50. There’s no better way to start your skin care day. 

2. Retinol products

You see retinol crop up again and again in skin care circles because it offers a multifaceted approach to combat key photoaging markers. 

Sun spots form through the action of an enzyme that drives pigment activity, and retinol inhibits its effects. At the same time, retinol prevents the collection of melanin in your skin’s top layers. This powerful skin ally also speeds the natural exfoliation effect that drives out dark skin cells. 

3. Skin brightening

Just like other body systems, your skin’s metabolism slows with time and with the effects of sun damage, resulting in dull grayish skin tone. There’s a wide range of SkinCeuticals products that add to your skin’s brightness. 

4. Exfoliators

Look to the extended range of SkinCeuticals exfoliating products that go beyond the benefits of retinol. Exfoliating stimulates natural skin revitalization, turning over some of the effects of UV exposure. 

5. SkinCeuticals and in-office treatments

SkinCeuticals products pair well with Hydrafacial MD and chemical peels aimed at banishing signs of photoaging. Hydrafacial includes a customized nourishment step, and there’s a SkinCeuticals formulation that’s right for you. 

The broad scope of SkinCeuticals products means you’ll need a skin care professional to help you through all of the possibilities. Schedule your consultation at the nearest Radiance Wellness MediSpa by phone or online, and let us show you all SkinCeuticals has to offer.
