Check out Renowned Hispanic Dermatologist for AVEENO®, Dr. Francisco Flores essential summer skin care tips for Latinas:
·         Always Use a Moisturizer with Sunscreen – It is important to use daily sun protection. Not only will you be preventing the dreaded dark spots or hyperpigmentation, but also premature wrinkles, which are 90% sun induced.

·         Keep Your Neck and Chest Protected at All Times – We tend to miss these areas when applying sunscreen during the summer, and since the skin is thin on those areas, it is more susceptible to sun damage. Following are some great ways to quickly renew your skin after a day in the sun:

o   Clean and exfoliate your neck and chest to get rid of makeup, dirt and excess oil;
o   Buff your neck and chest with facial scrub once a week, and
o   Extend your daily application of sunscreen and face lotion down to these areas.

·         Revitalize Your Body – Chances are you are spending countless hours under the sun leaving you with very dry skin, even your feet from wearing flip flops! Pamper yourself by taking short, lukewarm showers while using a moisturizing cleanser that will help revive your skin. Rely on natural ingredients such as oat to help improve the health of your skin.

·         Treat Your Uneven Skin Tone – Sun damage can cause uneven skin tone and dark spots. Use a moisturizer with soy and sunblock to help even out skin tone. 

·         Drink Lots of Water – Keeping ourselves hydrated during the summer is of vital importance, therefore, drink lots of water and very frequently.  

For an ideal and thorough summer skin care routine, Dr. Flores recommends the following products:

AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Skin Brightening Daily Scrub - Contains soy extract and microbeads, and it is especially formulated to improve skin tone and texture for a more radiant skin.

AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Targeted Tone Corrector Combines ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex and Vitamin A, two effective ingredients to even skin tone and fade dark spots.

Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal, AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash cleanses and moisturizes for visibly healthy skin and it is gentle enough for sensitive skin.

 Using a lotion such as AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion that contains natural oatmeal will help you hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth.
