If you know me, you know I ADORE the sun, and I basically LIVE in it when I’m home in Kelowna! Every time I step into the beautiful Project Skin MD South Granville location, I immediately feel rejuvinated and in good hands!!! I recently paid a visit to their Sun Event to learn more about sun damage and what I could do to reverse some of the damage the sun has done to my skin.
I’m sure you already know that skin cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in Canada. I know I’m guilty for feeling invincible to the sun, but I can’t stress how IMPORTANT it is to take care of your skin, and protect the ONLY skin you will ever have!!! Sunblocks and sunscreens are soooo important, and you should be wearing an SPF on your face every day, to protect from every day sun exposure.
In the summer, dullness and pigmentation are the most common skin complaints. For dullness, you may want to invest in a deep cleaning electronic brush to use multiple times a week, just to ensure your skin is extra clean before moisturizing!
For pigmentation, which is a direct result of skin damage, there are options to reverse the damage done!!! To help correct and prevent early signs of sun damage aging, Project Skin MD recommends either IPL Photorejuvination or Clear + Brilliant® Permea treatments. For more significant sun damage and signs of aging, treating your skin to a Fraxel® re:store DUAL treatment is best. This procedure got its start here in Vancouver, and it rids of the damaged cells to reveal more even, youthful and healthy skin! Pretty amazing if you ask me!!!!
To help my lovely readers with their skin damage and pigmentation, I have teamed up with Project Skin MD to give away a Pigment Balancing Masque, valued at $180, which will help control complicated pigmentation!!
