Sun Damage from Summer – What To Do Now
Now’s a good time to take stock of any sun damage accrued over the summer.
If you’re in your 20s or 30s, consider a series of microdermabrasion or light peels to help your skin slough off those damaged cells faster. Add your Vitamin A product back in at night (Retinol/Renova/Retin A/tretinoin, etc), if you stopped it for the summer.
If you’re 40+ you may need more, like a photorejuvenation treatment or series (light laser cousin called an IPL) to remove the brown spots. This also removes redness and enlarged blood vessels. Or, a Fraxel laser if you really got a lot of sun.
