Sun protection for your skin health and have fun this summer.

Sun Protection is VitalSummer is the best time of year in Australia. Swimming, camping, boating and fishing are a few activities that come to mind as a must in our sun loving culture. But alone with these fun activities come the damage that our intense sun can bring. So it is important to keep hydrated and wear sun protection.


The #1 cause of pre-mature aging in Australia is sun exposure. Many have the misconception that if they do not sun bathe they will not get sun damage. It is the multiple small periods of exposure that causes the bulk of sun damage in the skin due to a lack of sun protection.


Make it your goal this summer to protect your skin with adequate SPF and sun safe clothing.


Enjoy the fun summer has to offer, but sun protection is vital. Follow these simple skin health rules to prevent sun damage today.


#1 Wear a moisturizer with SPF every day, arms and hands too.

You will get longer lasting protection from a moisturizing sun screen than you will from sun screen alone. The reason you ask. A dehydrated skin will burn faster.


#2 Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

This may sound weird but dry, dead skin on the surface will only prevent your moisturizing sun screen from penetrating the surface and ultimately will lead to irritated and sun damaged skin.


#3 Visit your skin therapist monthly for an antioxidant peel and LED treatment.

The sun will deplete your skin of vital sun protecting antioxidants, natural moisturizing factor and severely imbalance your melanin production. The only way to counteract this is to have a professional antioxidant peel and LED treatment facial to restore your antioxidant levels and balance your skins natural anti aging & hydration functions. If you live in Brisbane come visit our Wavell Heights skin clinic for a Synergy Awakening LED facial. This concentrated antioxidant facial treatment will strip the skin of unwanted dry, dead skin cells, restore skin function balance, super charge your skins anti aging functions and help to turn back the clock on sun induced aging.
