Q. During summer, I find that I lose my healthy glow. What can I do to keep my skin looking young and radiant all season long?
Dr. Linda Miles D. O. M. responds:
It’s true, the combination of summer sun exposure and aging can wreak havoc on your skin. First and foremost, nourishing and protecting skin from the sultry, summer sun and dry, warm air is essential for a healthy, radiant complexion. While this can be challenging during summer, antioxidants are here for your rescue.
Research shows applying topical antioxidants help protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays, can complement the use of your sunscreen and when applied after sun exposure, help skin recover more quickly. Not to mention their super-strength skin-nourishing and anti-aging benefits. For your go-to daytime SPF antioxidant-blend, reach for Age-Defying Moisturizer SPF 15 by award-winning derma e ®.
