In honor of my friends’ upcoming trip to Vegas, I thought I would share my recommendation for anti-aging during the summer in a hot climate… And what product I loaded them up with to make their trip as skin-safe as possible.
It turns out that infrared radiation will absolutely zap your collagen and put your skin into a free-radical frenzy, creating damage. Read about that in another post I wrote, here.
A new, important factor in everyday skin protection, IR-protection is *of course* especially important when you’re planning a vacay. Infrared manifests itself as heat on the skin, so you could imagine the havoc that hanging out poolside in Vegas could create.
Here’s what I loaded them up with for their suitcases (also in mine when I was there in May for the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery meetings!):
SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair SPF 34 Tinted (also available without tint)
…is my absolute summer go-to superscreen. It features:
- A cosmetically-elegant, easy-to use and wear consistency: creamy, but not greasy
- A semi-matte finish offers light, complexion-flattering coverage
- Tons of specially-formulated antioxidants for both UV and IR protection
Remember, it’s important to protect from UV and IR on a daily basis, not just when you’re sitting poolside.
So give it a try this summer, don’t forget to reapply, and until next time: stay fabulous, my friends!
