Summer is here and so is the time to refresh your look and your skincare with medical-grade products available right here in College Station! We bet you — like most of us — have some dusty bottles of old products in your bathroom that you tried months or even years ago and then decided weren’t right for you. This month, you can bring those old products to us during a personal skin care consultation, and you’ll receive 10% off any products purchased in our office that day! Finishing your spring cleaning AND refreshing your skin care routine? That sounds like a win-win to us.
Before you start clearing out your shelves, here are few reasons why it’s important to refresh your skin care regimen:
Expired products don’t help anymore.
It’s important to check the expiration dates on your products, especially ones you don’t use very often. Expired products will, at best, be less effective or ineffective, and at worst may cause skin irritation or other negative reactions, depending on the ingredients. It’s always best to throw away expired products — after all, they can no longer help your skin. This month, it’s best to bring those products with you to your consultation!
Your skin needs can change over time.
Just because you had oily skin as a teen and young adult, doesn’t mean your skin will be that way forever. The same can be said for any other common skin types, like dry or combination. When you notice that your skin no longer seems to be benefitting from the products you use, it may be time for a professional skin care consultation to determine how your skin has changed, and what kinds of products are best for your skin now.
Skin needs change with the seasons.
As we stroll into summertime, it’s good to remember that you may not need the heavy moisturizers you needed to keep your skin from drying out all winter. A lighter formula can likely help you achieve the same results without a shiny or greasy appearance in the heat and humidity of summer. And although we always recommend wearing SPF 30 or higher sunscreen year-round, regularly wearing and reapplying your SPF becomes even more important in the summer months, when more of your skin is likely exposed to direct sunlight.
Concerned that wearing sunscreen every day will leave your skin feeling greasy or lead to acne breakouts? That’s a common problem with drugstore sunscreen brands, but we’re here to let you know you can invest in medical-grade sunscreens that can actually ENHANCE the health and appearance of your skin, rather than hinder it. Our results-driven formulas are designed to work with your skin type, so you can enjoy optimal protection from damaging UV rays while also improving oiliness, dryness, signs of aging and more.
