As skin care therapists we still face the challenge of educating our clients that using an SPF is a must for any skin and should be used every day. Following treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels and skin rejuvenation the skin can become photosensitive, some drugs also have a photosensitising effect.Photosensitivity may produce a rash and can lead to pigmentation problems such as freckles and age spots.
Using an SPF on a daily basis will minimise the signs of ageing, hydrate and protect you from photosensitivity and should be incorporated into your daily regime. We love Dermalogica solar defence booster (SPF50) and Mesoestetic dermatological sun protection (SPF 50) Both products feel light and do not leave a chalky white film on the skin. So remember prevention is better than cure ……. Available at Beauty Haven
