There’s not much more I love than the summertime – playing in the water, soaking up the sun, drinking yummy drinks by the pool. Ahh… pure bliss. What I DO NOT love about summer? The number it does on my skin. As I’ve reached my mid-thirties, I have seen a big difference in my skin, and unfortunately, it’s not a good one (insert frowny face). Crows feet have started developing around my eyes; Acne that seems to come on this time of year thanks to the heat and sunscreen, and other pore-clogging products; I have a few smile lines, and last but certainly worst of all – the sun spots! Oh, the dreaded sun spots! I turn into a spotted leopard each year about this time, no matter how religious I’ve now become about keeping my face covered and protected from the sun. I don’t think my face even sees direct sunlight in the summer now. It just knows its that time of year so the spots just start showing up – out of nowhere!
I’m sure many of you understand exactly the kind of frustration I’m feeling. I dished out advice to a 10-year-old family friend this last week while boating as I handed her the sunscreen. “I wish my mom would’ve told me to wear sunscreen every day when I was growing up, but it was rarely ever mentioned, and now I’m paying the price. Look at my forehead!” – As I showed her a huge cluster of uneven freckles, stretching from the left temple all the way to the right.
Many of us spend a lot of money on fancy creams with lots of guarantees but still don’t always get the results we want. I think this is why in the last few years, I’ve become more obsessed with beauty devices and any tools that can mimic the expensive work (at a cheaper price) I could have done in a dermatologist’s office, to get the best possible results.
One of these fabulously innovative devices I’m currently loving is the Total Refresher by Michael Todd Beauty. This awesome NEW beauty tool is a 3-in-1 Derm Rejuvenation System, designed to target EVERY area of aging including the skin issues the sun can wreak havoc on this time of year!
The complete rejuvenating system works to smooth, remove, and also soothe rough texture, congested pores, enlarged pores, fine lines and…… sun spots! Woohoo! Thank Goodness!
By using the Total Refresher daily, you can expect to see a more radiant appearance, as well as a more healthy, and youthful glow too. AND it’s going to target those areas you could use a little extra help with, like those sun spots, enlarged pores, wrinkles, etc.
