         We all dress for the weather. But to really protect yourself from the weather, most forget about one thing: your skin.

         All area’s climate can affect the skin all over your body. It can cause acne breakouts to itchy dry patches. Extremes in weather, both hot and cold, can exacerbate some existing skin conditions or even cause new ones.

         No matter the weather, skin should always be a main concern. Exposure to sunlight is one of the major causes of wrinkles and premature aging, as well as, skin cancer.

         Protect your skin. Wear sunscreen each and every day!

    Lytera is a skin brightening agent that is a part of the Skin Medica Family of skin care products. It can help with brown spots and discoloration of the skin. It has been newly formulated without retinal but it just as patent to reduce hyperpigmentation. Lytera 2.0 now contains a blend of antioxidants, peptides and plant acids. In a study, compared to hydroquinone (a skin bleaching agent) the new Lytera 2.0 demonstrated results comparable to hydroquinone in reducing pigmentation. Any skin type and tone can use Lytera because there is no retinal, no hydroquinone, no parabens, and is fragrance free. Also, it is great to add to any current regimen or treatment to help boost results.

    Did you know that regular use of sunscreen at any age reduces the incidence of all skin cancers and decreases the incidence of squamous cell cancer by a whopping 40%. Surprisingly in the United States only 30% of women and 15% of men use sunscreen regularly and 39% of American households have never purchase sunscreen.

    Each year we treat more than 1000 skin cancers in our office mostly on patients who readily admit to not wearing sunscreen. Sunscreens are also proven to prevent brown spots and wrinkles so why not get into the habit, reduce your risk of getting skin cancer and keeps looking good while doing it.

    Environmental skin aging resulting in wrinkles, irregular pigment spots and sagging has long been attributed to excessive sun exposure but new evidence shows that airborne particulate matter and noxious gases in air pollution are also damaging to exposed human skin. 
    The World Health Organization has declared that air pollution (outdoor and indoor) is the largest single environmental health risk and most of it comes from fuel combustion. Studies regarding effects on cardiovascular and pulmonary systems looked at exposure to traffic related particle emissions and this prompted researchers to also look at effects on the skin.
    They found that women living within 100 yards of a busy road had more facial brown spots and wrinkling than women living further away from traffic. Similar findings were found in Chinese woman cooking indoors with solid fuels and we have also known for a long time that tobacco smoke causes wrinkles by degrading collagen.
    Fortunately advances in sunscreen technology are keeping pace with these new findings. Better sunscreens have long incorporated physical blockers like zinc and titanium dioxide to protect against environmental pollutants and now the best sunscreens contain potent antioxidants as well.
    Products like SkinMedica Total Defense and Repair protect us from both ultraviolet light and airborne pollutants with zinc oxide and also contain potent antioxidants to help repair aging skin.
    If you want to maximize your home both skin protection and skin repair schedule a consultation with our esthetician today.
