Warm Weather Skin Advice

As temperatures approach triple digits in New York City, many of our patients are asking what they can do to care for their skin during the balmy summer days.  The most important step to take for summer skin care is to be diligent with sun protection.  All patients should use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 of higher.  Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours or after swimming, whichever comes first. Dr. Schweiger notes that, "Sun protection is the number one thing to consider when it comes to skin care for summer months.  That said, even patients who routinely wear sunscreen need to practice good skincare practices during the summer months.  This means following a cleansing routine, combined with anti-aging products.  In-office treatments, such as Laser Hair Removal and Zeltiq CoolSculpting can help you to get your face and body summer-ready." During the summer months, it is important to cleanse with a gentle cleanser twice daily.  Patients can oily skin should use a cleanser formulated for acne-prone skin, such as one with salicylic acid.  While retinoids are helpful anti-aging tools year round, they make some people too sun sensitive during the summer months.  Retinoids stimulate the production of collagen and help to treat and prevent fine lines.  Patients who cannot tolerate retinoids during the summer months should use anti-oxidant creams.  Anti-oxidants block free radical damage, from the sun and pollution present during hot summer days, from breaking down healthy collagen.
