How to Take Care of Fair Skin

skin rejuvenation treatments San Francisco, CA

Just like your DNA, it can seem like your skin color is just as rare. Ranging from fair to dark, your skin tone can vary considerably from your family— making you look more like strangers than relatives. If you have exceptionally fair skin, it’s important to know how to properly take care of it and protect it from the sun. From wearing sunscreen to choosing skin care products for sensitive skin, this article will list a few suggestions. Read on to learn more.

Wear Sunscreen

Fair skin means one thing: you are more likely to burn than others. If you are the type of person who doesn’t tan and looks like a tomato for the majority of summer, you are certainly not alone. The one thing that every person with fair skin should be aware of is that sunscreen is a real lifesaver. Get into the habit of wearing a daily moisturizer with a sunscreen in it so that you don’t get any type of sun damage– even by doing something simple like riding in the car.

Wear More Layers

If your friends and family members can get away with only wearing a few layers when they’re out in the sun all day long without having a fear of getting burned, you certainly can’t relate. One of the best ways— other than sunscreen— for you to shield your skin from the sun’s damaging rays is to wear more layers. Remember that the more your skin is covered up by clothes, the better.

Choose Sensitive Skin Products

Fair skin doesn’t always equate to sensitive skin, but for the most part that is the common consensus. When shopping for skincare products for your skin, try to buy products that are designed for individuals with sensitive skin— these will be more gentle and won’t irritate or damage your skin.

Having fair skin can seem like a blessing and a curse. By understanding how to take care of your fair skin, however, it can feel much more like a blessing. If you have fair skin and would like to learn more about how you can take better care of it, contact the experts at SKIN Medical Spa today and schedule a consultation.
