As a non-surgical clinic in Vancouver specializing in medical aesthetics, Dr. Rozmin Kamani and her team advocate wearing sunscreen daily to help prevent sunburn, skin cancer, and premature ageing.

Essential Summer Skin Care Tips from an Aesthetic Doctor

Fresh, glowing skin is a summer mood. However, the reality is that the hot weather and extra humidity often mean special skin care. Without taking care of skin, clogged pores, sunburn, and dark spots are just a few potential outcomes.

Fortunately, creating a good routine for summertime skin care isn’t difficult. As an aesthetic doctor in Vancouver, Dr. Kamani has been helping patients with skin care for over 20 years. Here are just five essential tips for healthy summer skin.

“The weather is warming up, and the added sun means it’s time to refresh your skin care routine,” says Dr. Roz Kamani. “As most people know, the sun can cause premature ageing. The skin contains a pigment called melanin and too much sun causes more to be produced. This is why we tan. This can also lead to an uneven tone and freckling, along with the redness and oiliness that is the summertime standard for some people.”


Refresh Your Skincare Routine For Spring

“After a harsh winter, your skincare regiment may need a bit of a pick me up,” says Dr. Roz Kamani, who specializes in professional Medical Aesthetic treatments and services.

“As the seasons change, environmental stress is often clearly reflected on the skin. People change their clothes, shoes, and makeup in the spring, but curiously enough many people stick with the same skin care routine, and this really doesn’t make sense,” says Dr. Kamani.


Prepping Your Skin for Fall

A slight tingling sensation, dryness, and flaking—most people have no problem determining when fall has arrived, because they can feel it on their skin. As the weather changes from warm and balmy to cool and crisp, skin irritation is often tangible, particularly if it’s already recovering from sun damage. For mature skin, this can mean spots, tightness, lines, and itching.

There are three primary factors that age the skin—stress, sun, and pollution. Most people are great at remembering their sunscreen during the bright days of summer, but if you’re serious about skincare, it’s important to wear sunscreen year round.


Skin Care For Any Age: Part Four, 50s

Nourish, hydrate, and restore
Once you’re over 50, your skin demands more attention. With changes in hormone levels, the skin becomes thinner and dryer. This is the time when self-management becomes paramount and using the correct products to nourish, hydrate, and restore elasticity has to become part of your regular routine for Anti-Aging.


Skin Care For Any Age: Part Three, 40s

Slower cell turnover and loss of moisture
In your 40s, you begin to notice that your skin is not as “buoyant” due to early loss of collagen. More fine lines and wrinkles start to show up. To combat slower cell turnover and loss of moisture, a corrective and preventative program of skin care is both important and desirable.
The “gold standard” for the treatment of laxity of the skin at this stage is Retin A. In SkinCeuticals, the two formulations, Retinol 0.5 and 1.0 are the perfect start. How does Retin A work? To put it simply, it stimulates your collagen and helps with exfoliation.

Early signs of aging
If you are in your 30s, you are likely experiencing hormonal changes which will affect your skin. This can lead to acne breakouts. In addition, some fine wrinkles and lines may start to appear as your collagen production cannot keep up with its breakdown, especially if you are a sun-worshipper or are outdoors a lot for work or recreation. In other words, early signs of aging start to occur no matter what!


Skin Care For Any Age: Part One, 20s

What the doctor ordered. Our skin changes with every decade we age. It is also our body’s largest organ. The younger we are, the faster our cells multiply. In our 20s the skin looks glowy and fresh, but the quick turnover of cells can very easily clog the pores, leading to acne and oiliness. What products do you use for each decade? Dr. Roz Kamani is a big fan of SkinCeuticals …let’s see what the doctor ordered!. “This is a wonderful and elegant line that uses quality ingredients,” says Dr. Kamani, founder of the Kitsilano Skin Care Clinic. “It’s well tolerated by all skin types.”
