The weather is what draws a lot of people to life in the desert, but the strong summer sun can damage your skin. Keep reading for some tips that will help you get your skin ready for Tucson’s most extreme season:

Wear Sunscreen

Walking out of the house without sunscreen leaves your skin completely susceptible to sun damage and increases your risk for skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen whenever you go outside helps you prevent wrinkles and sunspots. It can also prevent you from developing melanoma or other forms of skin cancer. You should wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to keep your skin protected from dangerous UV rays.

Stay Hydrated

Even though Tucson has a dry heat, it is still important to keep your skin hydrated throughout the summer. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to ensure that your body stays hydrated. Drinking enough water is one of the easiest ways to keep your skin looking and feeling its best

Keep Covered

Give your skin even more protection from the sun by wearing clothing that covers large amounts of skin. If you are planning to spend a lot of time outside, you should wear a hat and sunglasses. Try to stay in the shade whenever possible to avoid direct exposure to UV rays.

Treat Sun Damaged Skin

If your skin is already showing signs of sun damage, the staff at the medical spa can help. Skin treatments like chemical peels, Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial Rejuvenation Treatment, and even regular facials can help you keep your skin in the best condition.
