It can be a daily challenge to avoid the sun, but for skin experts like @radiantskinandwellness, combating the effects of sun damage is a major part of her daily skin care routine because she has a history of melasma. Even if you "stay out of the sun," UV damage still affects your skin impacting the texture, color and tone. It’s very common for women to have hormonal or genetic pigmentation that flares up during stress, sun exposure, or inflammation. The #EnlightenPeel is a great "rescue" peel that is safe for all skin tones and works to lighten the sun damage and improve fine lines and wrinkles. Because the peel has numerous active ingredients that suppress the skin's production of pigment, rather than burning the skin surface, it can be used on all skin types and improves discoloration rapidly. Hydroquinone and retinol work simultaneously to lighten the skin and provide deep exfoliation over the course of 5-10 days for a brighter skin tone, softening fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pore size and overall improving texture. If you have melasma or skin discoloration, also applying topical antioxidants like a Vitamin C will prevent free-radical damage from the environment and sun and also help improve texture and tone. In our practice, we combine lightening and exfoliation peels with low-density lasers like skin @ClearandBrilliantCAD @clearandbrilliant_au or fractional radiofrequency like @venusviva and microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for even more rapid improvement.
