The View: Summer Skin Solutions Dr Doris Day
Dermatologist Dr Doris Day said that summer is a time when we want to wear the more revealing clothing, but we aren’t sure how to keep covered. Specifically, our flaws. Some women and men struggle with dry skin, cracked skin, cellulite and more skin problems that cause self-consciousness. She brought in her favorite products and solutions to get summer ready skin.
Dr Doris Day: Home Sunburn Remedies
Dr Doris said she sees the worst sunburns on cloudy days. People don’t follow the proper sunscreen rules and end up regretting it later in life.
You can get all kids of creams, powders, and mists to protect you from the sun. She like the powders because they can go on over makeup and provide a high SPF.
Heliocare Supplement Review
Also, Heliocare is a supplement you can take to give yourself sun protection from the inside out. It’s especially helpful for those allergic to sun and does not replace the need for a sunscreen. You still need to reapply at least an SPF 30 during the summer every few hours.
If you do get a sunburn, Dr Day recommends a bath with a cup of honey and a cup of milk to soothe the burn. Cortizone cream is also recommended.
Olay ProX Review: Dry Skin Summer Remedies
When you want to break out the flip flops and tank tops, but are self conscious about dry, flaky skin, these remedies are essential. Amlactin is full of ceramides and gently exfoliates the skin. It’s good for cracked heels or those red bumps you tend to get on your arms. Dr Doris Day said you can use this as a daily moisturizer, but also an exfoliator
The microdermabrasion kit from Olay ProX has exfoliating crystals make of baking soda. You use the cream and then use the microdermabrasion brush to clean and rejuvenate your skin.
Lumenis Review: Home Care for Ingrown Hair
To prevent getting ingrown hairs, Dr Doris Day said that getting a good razor with about five blades will really help. The best way she said to get rid of hair is to use a laser. The light shaver, or Lumenis, pulls the hair up into the device. It’s considered a permanent treatment and you get it done five times at one month intervals. It will take about 10 minutes to do a back, and 15 to do your arms. You may need touch ups every few years. The laser is painless.
Dr Doris Day: Cellulite Fixes
95% of women have cellulite and it doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, what size you are, you’ll probably get it or currently have cellulite. Thermage is a process that uses lasers and light to tighten the skin. You can ask your dermatologist about this. It will only last a few years and is a little uncomfortable.
Dr Doris Day: Summer Acne Solutions
For acne, Dr Day likes the Clarisonic cleaner. They new have an attachment that lets you do the back now and you can apply medicine to it. She also suggests talking to your dermatologist about doing chemical peels for severe acne scarring.
