“Although one blistering burn when you are young can double your chances of developing skin cancer as an adult, sun damage is cumulative throughout your life. By age eighteen, you’ve acquired only 23% of your lifetime dose of UVA. Therefore, most of the damage has not been done. So, no excuses Always protect yourself from harmful UV radiation.”DermRF

“The outside humidity, not how much water you consume, determines how dry you are. Contrary to a popular myth perpetuated by bottled water companies, downing excessive fluids is not the best way to keep skin from drying out. In fact, by over-hydrating, you will flush essential vitamins and electrolytes out of your bloodstream. You need only ninety-one ounces of fluids a day, which you can easily obtain from both food and beverages. Trust your body’s natural signal: thirst. Only serve dehydration will cause your skin to dry out.”DermRF

  • Avoid long, hot showers: they actually draw moisture out of your skin and make you itchy. Instead, go for tepid, quick showes. Apply a heavy moisturizer regularly after bathing or showering while skin is still damp o seal in extra moisture.
  • If you soak in a warm bath, we recommend using bath oil.
  • Use a loofah sponge or a body micro=dermabrasion product regularly with warm water to boost circulation and remove dead skin cells.
  • Use products containing humectants such as sodium hyalurante, glycolic acid, and glycerin to attract water to skin and hold onto moisture.
  • Keep humidity in your home at about 50% or use a humidifier.

  • Use a clay-based cleansing mask weekly to unclog pores and help prevent blemishes.
  • Heat and humidity increase oil production. Apply oil-free moisturizer only to areas of the face that feel dry and tight.
  • Your sunscreen comes off with your sweat, so reapply it often. Mineral sunscreens containing zinc oxide can have a mattifying effect and may work better for oily skin.
  • Carry oil- blotting papers to refresh your face throughout the day.
  • Avoid strong hydroxy acids or other ingredients that are more likely to sting skin in hot, humid environments.

  • Slather on extra moisturizer in the morning and at night.
  • UV radiation increases 10%-12% for every 3,000 fee of elevation, so even if you can’t see the sun, apply sunscreen with antioxidants to protect your skin.
  • Don’t forget to protect your lips as well. The sun can be relentless at higher altitudes, especially in states such as Colorado, where the sun shines more than three hundred days a year.
