maintaining healthy skin throughout the summer

With the dog days of summer in full-swing, maintaining results achieved during cooler months can be a challenge. Not only do many people choose to forgo their regular treatment appointments for long days in the heat and sun, the increase in heat and humidity also exacerbates many common skin conditions. To help keep skin healthy and beautiful throughout the summer, PCA SKIN® has assembled a group of highly effective, results-oriented treatment protocols appropriate for hotter weather.

Below is one of our treatments designed to soothe and re-hydrate normal to dry, combination and mature skin types. It will also help to minimize the damage and dehydration caused by increased environmental exposure. Please note that a 48-hour respite from any excessive heat exposure following any PCA SKIN professional treatment is recommended. In addition, daily use of a broad spectrum SPF of 30 or higher is strongly encouraged.

non-burning hydra-renewal treatment protocol

This treatment will not create any burning sensations and may be applied on anyone with any condition at any age; however, it may be too moisturizing for those with oily, breakout-prone skin. It is likely to cause some delayed flaking two to four days post-treatment.

Contraindications: pregnancy and lactation.

2. Nutrient Toner – Apply with a cotton pad. Allow the skin to dry.
