How To Keep Your Skin Freckle Free During Spring Break
- Posted on: May 15 2017
As a trend that’s big in makeup right now, having an almost photoshopped look isn’t necessarily going anywhere anytime soon. By applying a lot of foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, and contour, celebrities like The Kardashians and Jenners are making this trend a big hit. However, if you have lighter skin and tons of freckles, it may be harder to get this photoshopped look. Luckily, with the help of the doctors at Allure Skin and Laser, you can get rid of your freckles and have that almost photoshopped look without as much makeup. Read on to learn more.
Intense Pulse Light or IPL, is a treatment that can be used for a variety of things such as pigmentation, veins, and sun damage. This treatment uses light over different wavelengths to target the pigment in your freckles called melanin. Over several treatments and once the melanin has been broken down, your freckles will go away— leaving you with that nearly photoshopped complexion you want.
Whether or not you decide to get IPL this spring, the best preventative method you take to ensure that you don’t get any more freckles is to wear sunscreen. Sunscreen acts as a barrier between your skin and the sun but needs to be applied multiple times throughout the day if you are going to be spending your spring break at the pool or beach. When shopping for a sunscreen, look for some that contain zinc oxide. Zinc oxide itself helps with preventing sunburns and protecting your skin from neoplasias or basal cell carcinoma.
Wear a Big Hat
Another great way to shield your skin from getting more freckles is to wear a large brimmed hat. And the great new is that this type of hat is in style right now— a win-win for your freckle situation. A large brimmed hat will cover every angle of your face that can be exposed to the sun and leave you with freckles.
It can sometimes seem impossible to be completely freckle-free but by getting IPL, wearing sunscreen and a large brimmed hat, you can hopefully not only get rid of your freckles, but prevent your skin from getting more.
