Soothing Sun-Kissed Skin

How to assess and treat skin with sun damage

 

Sun damage can occur at any time of the year, even in Winter, a fact that surprises most clients. Many people toss their sunscreen under the bathroom sink as soon as the temperature drops lower than 50 degrees. With Summer right around the corner, you may be noticing more clients coming in with concerns of discoloration, dryness, freckles, uneven skin tone, or fine lines, which are all common signs of sun damage.
