Recover from Sun Damage with These Skin Care Options

It’s been a hot and sunny summer in Northern Indiana which means that many of us have spent a significant amount of time in the sun! Spending time outdoors and getting a little bit of natural vitamin D is a wonderful thing. But if you forgot the sunscreen a few times or just spent a little too much time in the sun, your skin could be suffering from sun damage.

This is especially true if it’s your habit to forget the sunscreen or to expose your skin to hours of sunlight at a time over the last several years. You may be noticing your skin suffering the consequences. Don’t worry! It is not too late to do something about that sun damage!

Here is what you do:

Develop better habits.

We do not recommend hiding from the sunshine! But being wise about your sun exposure is important. Make sure to use a high quality sun screen every time you are in the sun. One of our favorite options is the Daily Brightening UV Defense Sunscreen from SkinCeuticals. This particular sunscreen does an excellent job of protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. But it does so much more. While it protects your skin, it also works to even out the discoloration caused from past sun damage! And to top it all off, it moisturizes your skin. For even stronger protection for your face, consider the Physical Fusion UV Defense with SPF 50.

Treat your skin well

There are a variety of ways to take good care of your skin and recover from sun damage. Here are a couple of our favorites:

  • Visit the SkinCare Spa. The Chadwell SkinCare Spa offers several excellent services. Come in for a peel like our newest Pigment Balancing Peel or the most powerful Advanced Peel. You could choose to receive a facial that typically includes toning and exfoliating and moisturizer, leaving your face smoother, brighter, and more even.
  • Use proven products. SkinCeuticals is a line of scientifically backed skin care products that Dr. Chadwell’s office carries. You will find an entire line of sunscreens that will meet your skin’s needs.
