Summer Skincare Switch Up

What Products Patients Should Keep, Add, Trade or Toss

All informed beauty experts know that a season change means a skincare routine change for your patients. With summer just around the corner, we’re sharing our thoughts on which skincare products to instruct patients to keep in their routine, add to their routine, trade out for the season, or toss all together.

Cleanser

Instruct your patients to trade out their hydrating cleanser for a less hydrating foaming or gel cleanser. Dry winter months are behind us, so they can move on to a lighter cleanser. They should look for one that has antibacterial ingredients, like NanoSilver, to help avoid any breakouts from summer sweat and environmental pollutants, which tend to be heavier in the warmer months.

 Toner

Patients should keep toner in their daily skincare routine. In summer, just as in the other seasons, skin needs a  “helper” to normalize pH levels and prepare it to receive corrective actives from targeted treatment products. Instruct your patients to continue toning morning and night after cleansing, using a gel toner to ensure ocular safety.  And they should go easy on the misting sprays as typically, those contain mostly water, which only dehydrates skin further.

Facial Serum

We recommended patients keep or trade out their facial serum, depending on what serum they are currently using. If the facial serum treats multiple skin concerns, like our Cell Revive Serum Complete, then patients can continue using it throughout all the seasons. However, if your patient tends to experience increased sun damage, such as sunspots and hyperpigmentation during summer months, recommend they switch out their winter serum for a Brightening Serum to help keep skin tone even and their complexion glowing.

Eye Serum

Recommend patients keep their eye serum year round. The eyes are the first place to show aging (along with the hands!) – via wrinkles, dark circles, crow’s feet and puffiness – and eye serums and creams are specifically formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes. Instruct your patients to look for a complete formulation that addresses all aspects of eye care to erase the signs of aging without endangering the fragile, sensitive skin of the orbital eye area.

Moisturizer

Patients should be instructed to trade out their heavier winter moisturizer for a lighter summer one. Using a moisturizer that is too hydrating during the hot summer months can make skin feel sticky or slimy, and can contribute to unsightly breakouts.  Have your patients switch to a lighter moisturizer or lotion that lightly hydrates skin and absorbs easily.

SPF

Toss. Yes we said toss! The start of summer is the perfect time to recommend that your patients toss their old sunscreens and buy new ones. Sunscreen shelf life varies depending on its ingredients. Have your patients check the date stamped on the packaging, instructing them to toss any products where the expiration date is hard to read, or if it’s been open for a year or more. For optimal sun protection as well as texture, sterility and stability, recommend they only use sunscreen prior to its expiration date as well.

Mask

We recommended patients keep up with their weekly masking, even during warmer months. In addition, if their skin is on the oilier side, during the summer months they may want to increase the number of times they use it to two or three times per week. Instruct your patients to look for a mask that contains natural and organic ingredients to keep skin healthy while exfoliating and deep-cleaning skin.

Scrub

Recommend your patients add a gentle, natural scrub to their skincare routine if they haven’t been using one already. Time spent at the beach, pool or lake can make skin dry and dirtier than usual. Scrubs can gently slough off that top layer of dead skin and reveal the healthy glow while helping to clear pores of dirt and debris, staving off breakouts.

The Facts On Sunscreen Safety

Not All Sunscreens Are Created Equal

As a professional in the aesthetics community, you already that not all sunscreens are created equal. In fact, some can be downright harmful to your skin and health. With summer in full swing, we’re sizing up sunscreens and taking a look at what should and should not be in them. Read on for our healthy and safe sunscreen recommendations.

A Safe Sunscreen Should…

  • Be all natural and formulated with mineral sunscreens, such as Zinc Oxide. Zinc Oxide is one of the safest ingredients for protecting the skin against harmful UV rays that can penetrate the skin and damage tissue. It is also effective in healing the skin and is an excellent astringent.
  • Be broad spectrum. This means that it protects the skin against both UVA and UVB rays. Both UVA and UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, with UVA rays being the ones that can get down into the underlying layers of skin causing wrinkling, aging and sometimes skin cancer.
  • Be a lotion, not a spray. Spray sunscreens pose an inhalation risk and may not provide a thick and even coating on the skin. So forego the convenience in favor of skin health and pick a lotion sunscreen.
  • Do more than just protect your skin from the sun. A good sunscreen is multifunctional with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection as well as being anti-inflammatory, hydrating and delivering anti-aging benefits.

 A Safe Sunscreen Should NOT…

  • Be formulated with Oxybenzone is an endocrine disruptor, which can affect the nervous system. It has also been linked to cancer in some laboratory studies. And it reported to cause the release of free-radicals when exposed to the sun.
  • Have a sky-high SPF value. Chose a sunscreen with an SPF, or sunburn protection factor, of around 30. Higher SPF values don’t necessarily offer greater protection against UV-related skin damage. Recently the FDA determined that high SPF claims may be “inherently misleading” and proposed to cap SPF values at 50+. However, the rule has not been finalized yet.
  • Contain retinol palmitate, or Vitamin A. This antioxidant combats skin again, however may scientists say that it can trigger the development of skin tumors and lesions when used on skin the presence of sunlight.
  • Be formulated with harmful chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, PEG’s (polyethylene glycols), propylene Glycol, phenoxyethanol, or SLS/SLES.

Stemology Skincare offers a suite of sun care products including Cell Renew SunVeil™ Complete OneTint™ Moisturizer SPF 17, a multifunctional, 3-in-1 formula that delivers deep hydration to skin, while Full Spectrum SPF 17 defends against harmful UVA/UVB rays, and Cell Renew EnviroExpose Repair and Restore Crème, a revolutionary formula featuring a unique blend of cell nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents that has clinically proven ingredients to reduce skin inflammation by 31%*.

Help Your Clients Stop Summer Sunburn

Smarter Choices This Summer for Healthier Skin

 You’ve seen it time and time again in you spa or medical practice. For many clients, summer sun can lead to summer sunburn. And while wearing a broad-spectrum SPF is a no-brainer to help prevent sun damage; healthy skin this summer (and all year round) is not just about putting on sunscreen! It’s also about stopping inflammation.

Inflammation is a stress reaction of the immune system for any reason – from sunburns to an infection. And it is also a key culprit scientists are studying for its involvement in everything from obesity to heart disease to depression. Help your clients learn that preventing sunburn is more than just putting on sunscreen with these inflammation-fighting tips.

Mind What You Eat

What you put into your body is as important as what you put on your body when it comes to preventing and fighting inflammation. Incorporate some of these super-foods into your diet this summer to help protect your body from inflammation.

  • Broccoli a Vitamin C powerhouse and a good source of calcium
  • Hemp Oil and other omega-3 fatty acids also contain gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) to further fight inflammation. Remember to look for the unrefined organic oils.
  • Tart Cherries reduce inflammation ten times better than aspirin!
  • Spinach contains plenty of carotenoids, one kind of inflammation-reducing antioxidant.
  • Pineapple contains bromelain, an antioxidant that boosts your immunity naturally.

Incorporate a Healthy Lifestyle

To truly prevent inflammation as much as possible, you’ll need to take action and change aspects of your lifestyle too.

  • Exercise Regularly, at least two and a half hours of moderate exercise each week has been shown to lower markers of inflammation by at least 12 percent.
  • Get a Massage. Research suggests that a 45-minute massage can lower your levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
  • Take Supplements, such as vitamin D and fish oil. In the lab, vitamin D shows a significant anti-inflammatory effect on cells. Fish Oil has been shown to decrease the need for anti-inflammatory drugs in some patients.

Be Conscious Of What You Put On Your Skin

  • Reduce your exposure to toxins by using natural products, especially in your skin care. When your immune system encounters foreign substances – including environmental toxins – it can react by creating inflammation.
  • Look for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients in your products that will help reduce and prevent free-radical damage, which can lead to inflammation.
  • Utilize the latest innovations in skincare, like stem cell technology, which has a clinically proven record of successful skin rejuvenation, from burn victims to fine lines and wrinkles.

Here Comes The Sun

Do You Know Sunscreen Fact from Fiction?

Contributed By: Dr. Hal Simeroth

We all know that excessive sun exposure can be bad for our skin and our health. But, there are many myths surrounding sunscreen and sun exposure that continue to linger. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, each year more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States, and the sun’s UV rays cause more than 90% of those. Test your summer sun knowledge with our Sunscreen Fact or Fiction quiz.

 

Fact or Fiction: Most of the skin damage we associate with aging – wrinkles, discoloration, sagging – is UV related and can be prevented.

Fact! According to a recent study, up to 80% of skin aging can be blamed on UV ray exposure.

 

Fact or Fiction: A few sunburns over a lifetime won’t hurt you.

Fiction! Even one, single sunburn can increase your risk of developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. And suffering five or more sunburns doubles your lifetime risk!

 

Fact or Fiction: You should apply sunscreen 30 minutes before you go outside.

Fact! Apply at least one ounce of sunscreen to your body at least 30 minutes prior to going outside. Then reapply every two hours, after swimming and after excessive sweating. If you are planning on being outdoors more than usual, use a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

 

Fact or Fiction: If you get out of the sun when you skin starts to turn red, you should be okay.

Fiction! Act quickly at the first sign of skin reddening. Get out of the sun and start treatment. Sunburns can take up to six hours for symptoms to develop. Blisters can develop hours or even days after a particularly bad sunburn. So if you’re seeing red, chances are it will only get worse.

 

Fact or Fiction: Flu-like symptoms can be signs of sunburn.

Fact! Flu-like symptoms, such as fever, chills, nausea, headache and weakness, can all be caused by sunburn. These symptoms can appear within a few hours or a few days after sunburn occurs.

 

Fact or Fiction: There isn’t a medicine that can help your sunburn heal.

Fiction! Take a dose of ibuprofen at the first sign of sunburn and keep it up for the next 48 hours. This will reduce swelling and redness, and may even prevent some long-term skin damage.

 

Fact or Fiction: Peeling skin is your body’s way of attempting to rid itself of damaged cells.

Fact! Peeling and itching are some of the last signs of sunburn and your body’s way to rid itself of sun-damaged cells. Reduce the urge to scratch and pick at skin. It will only make the healing process take longer and could permanently scar your skin.

 

Your best strategy for saving your skin is prevention, attention and action (PAA). What are you doing to prepare for the summer sun? Tell us in the comments.
