Protect your skin this summer

Summer has arrived, bringing sunny days and high temperatures. It’s an ideal time to enjoy the outdoors, but it’s also crucial to protect our skin from the harmful effects of the sun. At Clínica Escoda, we want to help you keep your skin healthy and radiant throughout the summer season. That’s why we present to you three essential options to protect your skin this summer.

 

1) With sunscreen

Solar radiation is composed of different wavelengths, including UVA and UVB rays, visible light, and infrared radiation (IR). It has beneficial effects on health, such as vitamin D synthesis, but it can also cause visible damage, such as premature skin aging, spots, and sunburn.

To prevent this damage, it is crucial to protect our skin with sunscreen.

We should apply sunscreen all year round, even on cloudy days. Remember that radiation penetrates clouds and reflects off various surfaces like snow, sand, and water. It can even penetrate the water to a certain extent, affecting us. It is important to apply a sufficient amount to cover all exposed areas and to reapply regularly.

The sunscreen should be suitable for each skin type and selected based on various factors, such as the person’s phototype (the lower the phototype, the greater the need for protection), the intensity of the light, or its reflection on surfaces like snow, water, sand, or altitude, for example. 

Regular and proper application of sunscreen creates a barrier that protects our skin from the harmful effects of the sun, helping to keep it in optimal condition.

At Clínica Escoda, we recommend ColoreScience products. These mineral sunscreens offer buildable coverage that adapts to your skin tone with a semi-matte finish. Their formula provides complete protection against UVA/UVB rays, blue light, pollution, and infrared radiation. Additionally, they are enriched with advanced antioxidants and nourishing and hydrating ingredients, ensuring long-term healthy skin.

2) With vitamins

2.1 Directly to the skin

Mesotherapy treatments with vitamins, such as Skin Vital or Eyelid Vital, are ideal for preparing the skin for summer. These treatments are designed to revitalize and rejuvenate tired and dull skin by injecting a cocktail of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other essential components. This mixture protects the skin from oxidative stress, promotes cell renewal, and improves skin radiance, giving it a fresh and rejuvenated appearance.

At Clínica Escoda, one of the products we use for this treatment is the well-known “New Cellular Treatment Factor” (NCTF) by Filorga. NCTF is a polyrevitalizing solution used in mesotherapy that contains over 50 active ingredients. These include hyaluronic acid (5 mg/ml), which provides deep hydration and improves skin elasticity, along with a cocktail of 12 vitamins, 23 amino acids, 6 minerals, 6 nucleic acids, and 6 coenzymes. Among the vitamins it contains, we highlight vitamin A, important for cell renewal; vitamin B2 (riboflavin), which contributes to skin repair and maintenance; vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), which stimulates collagen production; vitamin B12 (cobalamin), which regenerates cells; and vitamin C, among many others, which protects against oxidative damage. Additionally, it contains amino acids, essential for protein synthesis and tissue regeneration, and minerals and trace elements like magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium, zinc, and copper. These elements boast antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and regenerative properties, which strengthen the skin barrier, improve cell regeneration, and help maintain the firmness and elasticity of the skin that we lose over the years.

Both Skin Vital and Eyelid Vital are treatments that combat the signs of aging, improve hydration, promote cell regeneration, and protect the skin against oxidative damage, providing a younger and healthier appearance.

2.2 For the whole body: injected intravenously

Vitamin drips involve the intravenous (IV) injection of vitamins or “vitamin drips,” minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Unlike oral supplements, this technique promises almost immediate and complete absorption of the nutrients. Drip injections are an effective solution to ensure that the body receives the vitamins and minerals it needs.

They can be used effectively to boost energy and reduce fatigue, strengthen the immune system, improve hydration, promote skin health, support recovery after exercise, and help detoxify the body, among other therapeutic indications.

3) With cosmetics

First, it is essential to prepare the skin with double cleansing. For this, we recommend Endor Technologies products: the cleansing milk and the exfoliating mousse. The combination of these two products provides a thorough and deep skin cleansing, removing impurities and providing a gentle exfoliating action that prepares the skin for subsequent treatment. By removing oil and makeup residues, it allows for better absorption of the active ingredients applied afterward.

Next, we must protect our skin with the use of cosmetics, specifically with vitamin C antioxidant serums.

At Clínica Escoda, we recommend three SkinCeuticals serums for this summer.

3.1 CE Ferulic

A serum containing 15% pure vitamin C, designed to neutralize free radicals induced by UVA/UVB rays, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3), which can cause visible signs of premature aging.

This serum offers numerous benefits: it provides advanced environmental protection, improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness, and brightens the skin.

It should be applied in the morning after the cleansing routine.

3.2 Phloretin CF

A daily-use antioxidant serum with 10% pure vitamin C that provides advanced environmental protection

It offers enhanced protection against atmospheric skin aging, improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and uneven tone.

It should be applied in the morning on dry skin.

3.3 Silymarin CF

A powerful antioxidant serum with Vitamin C, specifically formulated for oily and acne-prone skin. It provides advanced environmental protection, helps improve visible signs of aging, minimizes pores, reduces excess oil, smooths skin texture, and reduces wrinkles.

Remember, keeping your skin hydrated is essential during the summer.

To determine the ideal facial routine for you and which antioxidant serum to use, you can analyze your skin with one of our experts through a skin diagnosis. This can be done both online and in person.

By following these recommendations, you will keep your skin protected throughout the summer. At Clínica Escoda, we are here to help you find the best products and treatments tailored to your needs. Enjoy an unforgettable summer!
