Summer's Best Glow-getters
July, 2020 - Issue #190

From healthy hair to dewy complexions, this summer's hottest trends are all about achieving that natural, effortless glow. Expect to see more barely-there makeup looks, multitasking skin care technology and high-quality hair care botanicals. Summer is looking up now that the local experts we adore are - finally! - back to help us get our glow back.

No-makeup Makeup for a Sunkissed Glow
Summer is for bronzed cheekbones and that natural "I just came from the beach" glow. Here's how to adjust your skin care routine to achieve that fresh, dewy look. To help protect your skin from the sun's damaging rays, as well as free radicals, start with a Vitamin C serum. This pivotal antioxidant supports the skin's natural regeneration process by repairing damaged cells and evening out skin tone. Next, apply a daily SPF 30 or higher with your moisturizer.
Another great option for glowing skin is regular exfoliation, at least two times a week, to give your skin a natural healthy glow. After exfoliating, your skin will need some replenishing. If you're tired of clay masks, try a sheet mask either at night or before applying your makeup. Many sheet masks can target specific concerns such as redness or dehydrated skin.
Now your skin is prepped and ready for makeup. For a light finish, opt for a tinted moisturizer or mineral makeup in lieu of a cream foundation, which feels heavier on the skin. Finish with a primer setting spray to give your makeup a more "refreshed" glow. As always, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep. The best medicine is always to take care of your skin from within!

Reverse Sun Damage & Restore Radiance with the Fraxel Dual Laser
Laser treatments have been a revolutionary tool in the skin care world, giving patients an option that lightens hyperpigmentation and reverses wrinkles without the downtime of a surgical procedure. While each laser treatment has a different set of targeted results, the Fraxel Dual laser is a powerful option for sun spots, age spots and uneven tone. Plus most patients see the results they're looking for after only one, painless session! A standard Fraxel Dual laser session starts with an application of numbing cream to the treatment area. After the cream has had enough time to become effective, the laser is applied to the skin, creating tiny channels and triggering a reparative process within the skin. Treatments take about 15 minutes, and for the next 4-5 days, the skin will retain a sandpaper-like feel until it gradually sloughs off - revealing brighter, smoother skin. The Fraxel Dual laser is an easy, painless way to treat: acne scars, surgical scars, periorbital wrinkles, irregular texture, enlarged pores, sun spots, age spots and precancerous lesions.

High-quality Hair Care Ingredients that Revive
Summer's holy grail hair products are all about texture and shine this year, and that gorgeous look is powered by formulations with high-quality ingredients and scents that smell so good you can leave the perfume at home. MARE Mediterranean Sea Mist contains rice seed extract to add volume and strengthen hair, while algae extract thickens strands, enhances shine and protects from environmental damages. With vanilla, bergamot, lemon and almond, this addicting spray will instantly transport you to the shores of Southern Italy with every mist. For added hydration, EVER Recovery Oil combines rich Marula oil, sustainably derived Squalane and rare Crambe Abyssinica to create an ultra luxurious formulation that seals the cuticle, repairs split ends, delivers damage-repairing nutrients, reduces thermal damage and enhances shine. Both products are part of the REVERIE summer line and are available at Sephora, as well as at Garrett Markenson Coiffure.

A Custom Prescription for your Perfect Skin
With the development of different laser technologies for skin rejuvenation, there's plenty of targeted solutions to choose from, whether you want to reduce the appearance of acne scars or help prevent cancer. But the best results, according to Board-certified Dr. Justin Heller, are seen when different laser treatments are combined to address the individual skin concerns of each patient. "I'm commonly asked, 'What's the right laser treatment for me?' explains Dr. Heller. "By choosing the lasers that are right for each skin type - and using them together in one treatment plan - we're able to restore the rested, healthy you of 5-10 years ago." The menu of Signature Laser Rejuvenations at Heller Plastic Surgery can produce a wide range of results. For example, Renuvion, CO2 and Erbium lasers have significant age-reversing effects: smoothing the skin, tightening the skin, correcting hyperpigmentation and helping prevent cancer. In comparison, an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment helps fight acne, reduce pore size and even skin tone. Additionally, lasers can erase unwanted dark spots and blood vessels while restoring skin's natural shimmer, texture and tone. "Everyone's skin concerns and desires are different, so finding that perfect combination produces astounding, long-lasting results," Dr. Heller explains.
