Rid Your Summer Sun Damaged Skin!
(Reuters Health) – Using sunscreen every day may help protect against aging skin, according to a new study from Australia.
Although the benefits of sunscreen are well know when it comes to preventing sunburns and lowering skin cancer risks, researchers said rigorous studies were lacking on how sunscreen use affects the signs of skin aging, or photoaging.

Did summer creep up on you this year? In many places, the cooler temperatures lasted a long time, and this may have made it difficult for some people to motivate themselves to get their “beach body” in shape. If you want a flat tummy and toned muscles before you hit the sand this summer, then here are a few tips to help you get in shape as quickly as possible.
Maximize your metabolism
If you are looking to lose a few more pounds before July or August gets here, then you should be focusing on your metabolism. How many calories you take in and burn between now and the dog days of summer will make all the difference. If you are exercising frequently, try to schedule your meals before or after a workout. This is beneficial because your body will either burn up the extra energy while you are at the gym, or it will continue to burn the food you consume as you come down from your fitness routine. Additionally, try to eat your biggest meals earlier in the day, rather than late at night. If you eat a lot right before you go to bed, your body will enter its “rest mode,” meaning it won’t be burning up those calories. However, if you eat a big breakfast or early lunch, you’ll have the whole day to expend energy.
Turn up your skin regimen
A slim waistline is the target for many, but others are worried more about making their skin look beautiful and youthful during the longest days of the year. It’s important to step up your skin routine, as you’ll likely be spending more time outside. Use plenty of suntan lotion and moisturizer to keep wrinkles at bay. You can also prevent facial lines by visiting a cosmetic surgeon for a Botox treatment. This aesthetic medicine works by “freezing” certain muscles that are responsible for the wrinkles that form around our mouths, brows or eyes.
It’s not too late for plastic surgery
Looking for something with longer-lasting results? It’s not too late to undergo a plastic surgery procedure if you are hoping to reveal your new look by the time beach season arrives. Many cosmetic surgery treatments such as hair transplantation, breast augmentation and liposuction require a few weeks of rest to get back in shape, which means you’ll still have time to enjoy the warmer weather once you’ve recovered.
This time of year, the media is chock full of skincare tips. The reminders to wear sunscreen whenever you go out can get a bit tiresome after a while, so let’s take a look at some of the healthy summer practices that may be overlooked in those everyday advice columns:
The driver’s danger
Road trips can be blissful when the weather is warm, but don’t make the common mistake of thinking that you’re protected from the sun while driving. Even if you ride with the windows up, you can be exposed to harmful UV radiation. Unless you want half of your face to look like it was made out of leather, be sure to bring along a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher when you hit the road this season. To keep it simple, reapply whenever you pull over for a rest stop or to fill up your tank, and you’ll be good to go.
Protect your peepers
It’s important to keep your skin protected, but the sun’s rays can also do damage to your eyes. Sunglasses aren’t only a fashion statement – they’re essential for your safety! This tip is particularly important for people who have light-colored eyes, but sunglasses can also protect the delicate skin around your lids. If you really want to be safe, invest in a pair of large sunglasses – aviator-style shades are quite popular – and you’ll ward off sun damage, freckles and puffiness around this part of your face. On top of that, forgoing sunglasses will leave you squinting in the bright summer sun more often, which means you’ll need to get a Botox treatment sooner rather than later to treat your inevitable crow’s feet.
Don’t sweat it
Moisturizer is your best friend in the winter, because the cool, dry air can cause your skin to flake. In the summer, however, you’ll likely be experiencing just the opposite – sweat and humidity will cause your skin to be saturated with oils that can lead to blemishes. Washing your face two or three times a day is recommended, and you should still apply a moisturizer with SPF afterward to keep your skin healthy. If you are already suffering from sun blemishes, consider paying a visit to your local aesthetic plastic surgeon’s office to schedule a microdermabrasion
