6 Fixes for Summer-Ready Skin

Featured, Mobile Slider Featured, Your Health

If the idea of donning a summer swimsuit makes you recoil in fear, you may be dealing with less than glowing skin due to discoloration, spider veins, acne, a bumpy rash, or embarrassing scars.

Don’t be shy—take the advice of these professional dermatologists and get your skin ready for tank tops, mini-skirts, short-shorts, and bikinis with these six skin fixes…

1. Skin Discoloration

If the backs of your arms, or your neck, or chest look a little browner or redder than the rest of your visage, you may opt to cover up rather than embrace the tank top or scoop neck t-shirt. If you love to sunbathe, the thin skin on the sides of your neck could draw unflattering attention to an area stricken by years of sun damage, as well as alcohol consumption, and cigarette smoking. Just be sure to have any skin abnormalities checked out by a doctor to ensure you don’t have skin cancer.

Rather than wasting your money on so-called lightening creams, Washington-based dermatologist, Dr. Eliot Battle, recommends non-invasive laser skin resurfacing treatments administered by a dermatologist to banish discolored skin pigmentation, freckle spots, and redness that’s existed for more than a year. Light emitting device (LED) and factional laser treatments banish damaged skin cells caused by melanin overproduction and prevent further skin discoloration. You’ll also want to keep skin protected with a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or more) and cover exposed skin with dark clothing to avoid future sun damage.
