5 Tips to Keep Your Skin Glowing This Summer

Summer days spent enjoying the backyard or walking along the shores of Lake Michigan can be a real mood booster. Unfortunately, outdoor fun can also be a killer for your skin. The good news is there are steps you can take to keep your skin glowing all season long.

Dr. Karol Gutowski and Dr. Julia Kerolus provide a wide range of services — from facials and dermal fillers to skin care products — to help you look and feel your best.

Ways to keep skin glowing

There's no doubt that summer can do a number on the skin. Whether it's dehydration from the heat or damage from the sun, the net result can be dry and irritated skin. Here are some ways you can keep your skin looking luminous.

Facial

A facial deeply cleanses and hydrates your skin through a series of steps that include steam, exfoliation, massage, and a customized treatment plan using serums, creams, and masks. In addition to unclogging pores and removing layers of dead skin cells, a facial can improve circulation and skin tone and replenish nutrients.

Facials can also address problematic skin conditions like blackheads, acne, and rosacea.

Chemical peel

If you're looking to reverse sun damage to your skin or address other issues like freckles and dark spots, a chemical peel can help rejuvenate your facial skin. Chemicals placed on the skin cause a controlled burn that peels away layers of skin and stimulates your body’s natural healing response. The end result is smoother, brighter skin.

Microneedling

This minimally invasive procedure uses a specialized microneedling device to make tiny invisible perforations to the skin. As these micro wounds heal, your body releases growth factors and forms new tissue. Afterward, your skin is firmer and glowing.

Skin care products

Using the proper skin care products is another key to radiant skin. We offer a number of innovative state-of-the-art skin care solutions.

ZO® Skin Health employs unique delivery systems and exclusive formulations. Epionce® is a physician-strength skin care line based on hard science. Cutting-edge products from ALASTIN Skincare® can help ensure optimal procedure results and enhance your daily skin care regimen.

Healthy diet

Even your diet can affect your skin. Foods high in antioxidants — like berries, grapes, walnuts, and pecans — can help combat free radicals. Have them as a snack or part of a meal to help keep your skin healthy and glowing.

If your skin is looking dull and dry, we can help you return it to its natural, radiant state. Call our office today at 618-224-3347 to schedule a consultation to develop a treatment plan that's right for you.
