Remember how your skin looked in the spring time? Dewy, smooth and as radiant as the blossoming plants and flowers blooming all around?

Then came the summer.

Long, hot days full of beach visits, park outings, boat trips and pool fun meant a lot of time in the sun. But, the more fun we had outdoors, the more our skin suffered as a result. The ultraviolet and infrared radiation, as well as pollution, wind, sand, and other environmental influences, all bombarded our skin leaving behind their negative effects.

 

These environmental triggers cause not only change the look of our skin, they cause actual changes deep below the surface as well. These  cellular and genetic changes in our skin increase pigmentation (melasma, blemishes, sun spots) and break down our collagen/elastin, which are an important part of our framework and support structural molecules in our skin. Loss of these structures lead our skin to turn rough in texture, sallow, and wrinkly. With increase in summer humidity, our oil production increases which causes dilation of pores and more acne breakouts in prone individuals.

So, if you’re anything like us at Precision Skin Institute in Davie, and looked in the mirror at the end of summer longing for the look of your spring time skin, don’t worry, we’re here to help.
