A "Care Free"

Jun 14, 2018 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

Summer time can give us visions of “carefree” days at the beach, tennis court, or even sitting in the stands.  Summer is a vital time to continue to be vigilant with your sun protection.   Even though we all desire those “carefree” days, we should not forget to apply our sunscreen, as well as remember to reapply it!  Here are a few more tips to help you get through these hot summer days.


If you are suffering from dry skin, it can mean you may be missing natural oils that help keep your skin hydrated and healthy.


Quick Fix- Morning and night use a hydrating lotion or creams.  Make sure to check your label for desirable ingredients such as glycerin, ceramides, or hyaluronic acid.  You may also want to consider adding a spray for refreshment or hydration. If you have normal to combination skin types, it does not necessarily mean you should neglect it.  Even the most balanced complexions need maintenance. 


Quick Fix- In the mornings try adding little drops of BB (Beauty Base) on top of your SPF.  The Beauty Base is likely to have a highlighter or illuminating serum in it that will give your skin the appearance of a “dewy glow.” If you have an oilier skin type make sure not to dry out your skin; dryness may lead to possible breakouts or to sensitive areas.


Quick Fix- Try adding an alcohol-free toner before you apply your moisturizer.  You can also consider trying an oil-free moisturizer, topped off with a mattifying spray to help neutralize any shiny areas!



These tips can be an easy addition to anyone’s summer schedule.  Plan ahead to fully enjoy those “toasty” days here in Dallas!  Schedule an appointment at our Dallas office to analyze your skin, review your current skin care regimen, customize a special skin care program tailored to your skin, and take care of all your skin care needs.
