Post-Summer Skin Recovery: Your Ultimate Guide to Reviving that Sun-Kissed Glow

Summer has been a blast, hasn’t it? But now that the sun is taking a bit of a breather, it’s time to give our skin the TLC it deserves after all that summer fun. We’re talking about soothing sunburn, banishing those stubborn dark spots, and giving your skin a big gulp of hydration. Lucky for you, here at GMA Clinic we’re here to spill the beans on how to get your post-summer skin back on track, and we promise, it’s a breeze.

The Sunburn SOS

Let’s kick things off with everyone’s not-so-favorite guest, sunburn. Whether you forgot to reapply sunscreen or just lost track of time enjoying your outdoor activities, sunburn can happen to the best of us. Here’s how to make peace with your rosy-red, sun-damaged skin:

    • Be Gentle & Keep It CoolOpt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser that nourishes your skin while cleansing away impurities, without stripping away the skin’s natural barrier. It may also be helpful to apply aloe vera gel to keep the skin nice and cool. Hot showers? Not a good idea! 
    • Hydrate Like It’s Your Job: Sunburn is a thirsty beast. Use a serum infused with low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid, as it attracts and retains moisture, keeping your skin plump and supple. For an extra boost, treat yourself to a weekly hydrating mask to replace dull-looking skin with a healthier, more vibrant glow. And of course, drink plenty of water to heal your skin from the inside out. 
    • Sun Safety: Promise your sunburned skin a break from the sun. In addition to a broad-spectrum sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and long sleeves should also be your best friends.

Vanquishing Hyperpigmentation

Those little souvenirs called hyperpigmentation can be a real buzzkill. But fear not, we’ve got some tricks up our sleeves to help you bid them farewell:

  • Mandelic Acid Brightenining Peels:

    The Mandelic Acid Brightening Peel is a gentle, yet powerful alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) based peel treatment derived from bitter almonds. The Peel’s micro-exfoliating properties help to accelerate cellular turnover, lift surface impurities, and remove superficial pigment. In other words, it works to reset and renew the skin by eliminating sun-damaged and older skin cells, and replaces them with newer, healthier skin cells. 

  • Picosure Pro:
    • Say hello to the new & powerful technology of Picosure Pro (a level up from the famous Picosure treatments). PicoSure Pro is a powerful laser that delivers 755nm energy in picoseconds for treatment of pigmentation and skin revitalization. As the latest revolution in pico-second technology, it removes unwanted pigment, wrinkles, acne scars, pores and tattoos with a much higher success rate compared to traditional lasers. 

    The energy delivery is so rapid that it spares the skin from high thermal damage, leading to a safer and more effective treatment with minimal to no downtime.

  • Target Hyperpigmentation with Supercharged SkincareLook for products that contain ingredients like vitamin C, azelaic acid, niacinamide (vitamin B3), kojic acid and arbutin, as they help to inhibit irregular melanin production, brighten your complexion, and fade discolouration. Consistency is key when it comes to skincare. Give them time to work their magic. Want some recommendations? Take a look at this Hyperpigmentation’s Enemy Kit!

Rebuild the Skin’s Barrier & Hydrate the Skin

After months of intense sun exposure, weakened skin barrier and dehydration is often the primary concern for post-summer skin. Here’s how we can help:

 

    • Hollywood Facial: Let us start by telling you 1 Hollywood Facial = 40 regular facials. Why? All thanks to more effective penetration. This treatment uses patented technologies to infuse a customized blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and other essential nutrients deeply into the skin where they are needed most for optimal skin health. The Hollywood Facial works to regulate the skin’s functions, strengthen skin barrier, and treat a host of skin concerns.
    • Hydraglow Facial: Imagine a spa day for your face! HydraGlow cleanses, exfoliates, and gives your skin a drink with hydrating serums, leaving you with a glow that says, “I just spent a month on a tropical island.” Better yet, this facial is pregnancy & breastfeeding friendly for those of you who are going to be a mom or just welcomed an additional member to your family. 
    • Dermal Fillers: Struggling with the loss of facial volume due to sun exposure? Dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid can plump and hydrate your skin from the inside out. Take a look at our GMA 3D Harmony treatment at our clinic to learn more about our customized approach towards injectable treatments.
    • DIY Hydration: Keep the love going at home with a top-notch moisturizer and plenty of H2O. Here’s what we recommend: 

Keeping the Glow Going

Once you’ve pampered your post-summer skin, it’s all about keeping the love alive:

 

  • Sunscreen Savvy: Sunscreen should be your ride-or-die. Make it a daily habit to protect your skin from future sun mischief.
  • Healthy Habits: Eating right, staying active, and getting your beauty sleep are secret weapons for glowing skin.
  • Skincare Self-Care: Stick to a skincare routine that’s as unique as you are. Cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize regularly, and don’t be afraid to switch things up when the seasons change.
