Glycolic Acid Serum
Runners, cyclists and anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors are more likely to experience problems with discoloration and chapping. Wear sunscreen daily on exposed skin. A soothing facial can help hydrate the skin and calm redness and inflammation. And IPL Photofacial can be an excellent choice to help reduce existing brown spots, hyperpigmentation and restore a more even, youthful-looking complexion.
This non-invasive light-based treatment also encourages collagen production. To keep expression lines at bay, wear good sunglasses when exercising outdoors to prevent squinting, and try to stay aware of your facial expressions during workouts. Breakouts are also a common problem among athletes. Sweat creates a warm, moist environment for acne-causing bacteria to thrive. Dirt, oils, cosmetics and workout gear can trap moisture onto the skin, leading to breakouts on the face, shoulders, back and other areas.
Always remove makeup before you train ( but don’t forget the sunscreen!) and shower immediately after finishing a workout because running errands in sweaty workout clothes increases risk of developing skin rashes and infections as well as acne.
If you are a swimmer, there are many simple things you can do to offset the effects of Chlorine and keep your skin looking and feeling smooth. Don’t skip the pre-swim shower ( it helps reduce Chlorines drying effect on skin.) Drink plenty of water during the day to help your skin flush away pool chemicals and maintain its natural moisture. Lastly, apply a high-quality moisturizer after each swim.
Good sleep is essential for repairing, regenerating and restructuring the skin. The minimum sleep time recommended for adults is seven hours, but only 32 percent of adults achieve this. It is proven that the cell rejuvenation process takes place when your body is resting, suggesting that your skin’s luminosity is better post-rest. During the day when it’s light, our skin’s main job is to keep hydrated and protected. At night when it’s dark and we’re sleeping, the skin is genetically programmed to switch into recovery mode proving that beauty sleep is far more than just a marketing tag.
