Start Looking and Feeling Your Best for the Rest of the Year

If you’re anything like most Valley folks, then you’re well aware of how many of us down here spend days lounging by pools or taking weekend trips to South Padre Island. Being in the sun can be good for your skin as it’ll absorb plenty of Vitamin C, however, overexposure can cause issues that’ll require attention. Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center is here to help you keep your skin looking great for the rest of the year.

Skin will begin to show signs that it’s had its fare share of sunlight. If there are two things sunny days leave behind in their wake, they’re sunspot blemishes and maybe even a few wrinkles. Our Lifeline Skin Care products help reverse the damage of overexposure to the sun. Once the holidays roll around, your skin will be looking young and healthy!

If you do happen to notice wrinkles, dark spots, blemishes or fine lines, we also recommend glutathione injections, which offer a great and effective way of slowing the appearance of aging. Glutathione is a natural antioxidant that helps fight free radicals known to age your body. Additionally, these injections can help fight problems such as hyperpigmentation and can even improve the immune system.

Treat Your Face

Don’t forget that chemical peels such as scrubs, creams and other harmful products that contain glycolic acids and retinoid should definitely not be used if you spend a lot of time in the sun. These facial treatments can end up causing more harm than good. If you do happen to use them, make sure to protect your face with hats or SPF-rich creams. There are also antibiotics that can make you more susceptible to sunburn, such as tetracycline.

What is Mineral Makeup?

Mineral makeup won’t sweat off easily compared to regular foundation products since it has a light powder base. Some of these makeup lines even contain SPF protection in them for your skin. You can save more than a couple of extra bucks by doing a little digging around and reading labels. Most of these products have the same ingredients and are more affordable than the pricey brands at department stores.

You Are What You Eat

Never forget that as with everything else, your skin needs proper maintenance. Vitamins and minerals help skin stay healthy. Check out your local farmer’s market for some fresh fruits and vegetables, as they’re rich in antioxidants and protein. On top of that, eggs and fish can help stimulate collagen growth, which helps prevent wrinkles and promotes skin elasticity. Speaking of stimulating youthful growth, ask us about our SculpSure treatments, which help reduce fat and slim your appearance in no time without surgery!
