If the skin is not cared for, the aging process will become noticeable at a much earlier age than usual. To keep skin looking and feeling young, we need to put a little bit of work into it. How do we do that? Laser skin treatments and the use of quality products are great solutions.

A majority of the damage to our skin throughout the years comes from the sun. Even on cloudy and rainy days, the sun is giving off ultraviolet rays that affect the skin. You don’t need to get a sunburn to have sun damage.

Sun damage adds dark spots and wrinkles to your skin. Up to 80% of the aging of your skin is the result of environmental damage.


Use a quality sunscreen such as Elta and Obagi sunblocks. These sunscreens offer broad-spectrum protection and can block the UV rays from touching your skin. Those with lighter skin will want to look for higher SPF sunblocks to keep their skin from burning.

Unlike makeup, it is difficult to tell when sunscreen wears off until it is too late and you are already sunburned. Regularly applying sunscreen will keep it fresh and active.

Laser Skin Treatment

Getting rid of existing damage to your skin will help reduce the overall amount of visible damage. Laser skin treatment can help restore natural beauty to the face without needing chemicals and other harsh ingredients.

These treatments can also be used to keep skin from aging prematurely. Lasers use the power of light to work with the skin, and they can have a lot of benefits without causing damage.

Chemical Free Skin Care

Taking care of your skin is essential. While many people use over-the-counter skincare products, it is recommended to use medical grade products, such as the type sold at BodyLase. It is important not to use products that have chemicals or harsh ingredients since these also can damage the skin and cause it to age. Medical grade skin care products on the market will help to keep your skin looking young.

Skincare takes some time, but the long-term benefits are worth it. If the damage is already done, laser skin treatments can give you a second chance at looking young and healthy again.
