For those prone to uneven skin tone due to UV damage, summer drawing nearer can mean worry. Many put in lots of effort to clear the appearance of discoloration on their skin throughout the fall and winter, only to see it resurface as the temperatures rise and they inevitably spend more time on outdoor activities. With some minor adjustments to habits and regimen, this cycle does not have to repeat itself.
It is important to remember that heat, not only UV exposure, can stimulate skin damage. Although it can be difficult to avoid getting overheated during the summer months, especially in humid climates, it is wise to avoid extended or frequent overheating. Outdoor activities during the hours of 10am and 4pm should be minimized, and wearing wide-brimmed hats, protective clothing and staying in the shade can help to suppress unwanted pigment deposit.
The daily use of broad-spectrum sun protection is a must for everyone, but imperative for keeping UV damage to a minimum. In addition to continuing with your regular use of the brighteners in Pigment Gel® and Brightening Therapy® with TrueTone, adding Perfecting Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to your regimen boosts your skin’s ability to suppress uneven skin. This revolutionary broad-spectrum sun protection product contains a blend of bearberry, licorice root extract, kojic acid, mulberry root extract and lactic acid that work synergistically to inhibit and interrupt this process. Additionally, the inclusion of caffeine and silybin from milk thistle gives skin powerful protection against free radical damage and the formation of sunburn cells.
