June Weddings: Peels and MDA

  As the June wedding season approaches, don’t forget that microdermabrasion or light peels can be useful to refresh your skin for that important day. These treatments clean out pores and exfoliate dead skin so that the surface of your skin looks smoother (the glow factor).  It’s an affordable way to get a quick boost in your skin appearance!

Here’s what not to do though. Don’t peel/MDA if you are going to be in the sun a lot or have melasma. This time of year with all the UVA (summer solstice), these treatments could aggravate your melasma and make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
