Dangers of Summer

Fun is not in the sun for your skin. Why? Sunlight gives off UV rays, which damage skin and progress aging. This causes:

  • Wrinkles: UV rays break down collagen, the protein that holds cells together. This breakage causes wrinkles to form.
  • Sunspots: When sunlight damages skin, melanin is produced. Melanin is the pigment that darkens and “tans” skin. Sunspots form when melanin is repeatedly produced, a sign of damage.
  • Sunburn: Sunburn occurs when UV rays penetrate deep into skin, killing live cells. Skin becomes red and warm because blood rushes to the burn to replenish dead cells. Over time, burns can damage DNA which may cause cancer, research shows.

Dr. Perricone skin care suggests guarding skin from these harmful damages. Read on for Dr. Perricone skin care ideas for protecting skin.

How to Protect Skin with Dr. Perricone Skin Care

If you still want to have fun in the sun, make sure your skin is protected. Follow these easy Dr. Perricone skin care tips for protection:

  • Wear a big floppy hat and sunglasses.
  • Pick a spot in the shade during your next trip to the pool.
  • Pack a big umbrella to sit under at the beach.
  • Apply sunscreen such as More than Moisture SPF 30 every day before stepping out of the house.

After a long day outside, Dr. Perricone skin care suggests moisturizing and drinking plenty of water. As you age, skin cells are less able to hold moisturizers and are therefore easily dehydrated. Moisturized cells are healthier and better able to protect skin.

Healthy Summer Alternatives

The staple of summertime is a healthy glow—the keyword being healthy. If you want a tan complexion, check out Dr. Perricone skin care No Sun Tanner. This healthy self tanner gives skin a tan appearance without the harmful sun. In fact, it has benefits such as DMAE and Cocoa Butter to moisturize and keep skin young.

  1. I am trying to decide between using Obagi or Perricone skin care products. I am 58 years of age and want to look my best. Everyone tells me I do not look my age. I have a dear friend who is the same age as I am and she has being using Dr. Perricone’s products and is happy with the results. My dermatologist highly recommends Obagi.

  2. I am learning alot about the dangers of chemical suncreens and how they can cause not only havoc on the skin more so when in contact with the actual sun rays but also, internally being abosorbed into the body. That being said, many companies are using mainly Zinc ( which I approve of) and other ‘mineral’ blocks, and are hyping them as ‘micro-encapsulated’, into smaller particals. I am told through much research now that these are very dangerous as well, as the smaller the partical the more they travel ‘into’ the skin and cause clogging and absorption into the bloodstream. I’d love to hear how Dr Perricone prevents and deters this in his products or where to research this on your site.
    Thank you for being a pioneer in your field and in caring for and healing the woe’s of all of our skin’s…..

  3. I have used many high-end products (Skinceuticals, Obagi) and would like to try Perricone products to see the difference on my face. Please let me know what you have for a face that has been kept in excellent shape but is now starting to age. I am 60 and have no deep wrinkles due to fillers and botox.

    Thank you,

  4. I would love to become a product tester for Perricone. I have heard so much about this brand, but unfortunately, the price does not fit into my budget.
