More than just SPF tips for your Summer Skin Care
Ladies, I have a gift for you this May- the start of our summer season… We all know that we should take good care of our skin and protect it from the summer sunshine. “Do not go out between 10 am and 2 pm when the rays are the most damaging…” and “ Be sure to reapply your sunscreen every few hours…” are a couple of rules ingrained in our minds, right?
But, did you know this? (Here’s the gift part… FYI)
Use lip balm that have at least SPF 15. (Do not use gloss with shine because it can act as a magnifying glass!)
Sunscreen pads are awesome for application of sunscreen on your face, hairline, ears and neck. (I had NO IDEA these existed… )
Try extra layering with your sunscreen. For example, BEFORE applying your sunscreen, have you thought about applying a Vitamin C serum or one with green tea extract for antioxidant power?. THEN, apply your first layer of sunscreen (at least SPF 30). When reapplying, try a powder sunscreen such as Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF45 ($30) so you don’t get “extra shiny.”
Hydration, hydration, hydration. Try serums that help provide hydration for your skin. All the skin lines carry them and do provide that extra to keep your skin supple and soft.
Night time masks are a great way to soothe the skin after an afternoon at the pool or at the beach.
*** Don’t forget to check the expiration dates on your lotions and to apply 20 minutes before you go outside.***
I was just happy to put the correct SPF sunscreen on my skin and NOW we all have the knowledge to use powder, balms, masks, and serums… wow!!! Now, we have more in our beauty bag to help us continue having healthy, young looking skin! Woo-hoo!!!

"I can not begin to express how having Dr. Marcantel as our doctor shaped our entire prenatal care and delivery experience for both children. He has a magical way about his care - patient, soothing, empathetic, humorous, focused, and professional. He had this way of making me feel like I was his only patient. His responses to my questions were thoughtful and his use of analogies and storytelling made the abundance of information all so easy to understand! I received excellent care from the other 3 doctors in the office as well; each had his/her own unique way of taking great care of me, even after my delivery with my second child. As I reflect on that glorious time, I will always smile fondly on the amazing experience I had with your team in the office and in the hospital!"
