Summer fun and sun can take a toll on your skin but the right products and treatments can work wonders to counter balance the effects of too many UVA/UVB light rays.

Sun exposure can result in hyperpigmentation, patchy skin color or a blotchy complexion. Now is the perfect time of year to help pigmentation problems caused bye by sun damage with a regimen of professional peels.

Natural peeling agents (AHA's and BHA's, such as those contained in the Institut' DERMed Micro Lifting Peel) can help to slough off damaged skin cells and encourage an environment for new skin cells. Ingredients such as Ascorbic Acid -  a vitamin C designed to prevent skin discoloration and assist with boosting collagen production; Malic Acid -a alpha hydroxy acid that is naturally found in fruits such as apples and works as an exfoliant on the skin; Papain Enzymes - fruit enzymes from papaya, that are gentle yet effective exfoliants; and Salicylic acid that helps to shed the outer layer of dead skin cells as well as dissolve the oil that clogs pores. All of these ingredients also brighten and even the skin tone and texture.

Fall is the season for professional skin peels and you can continue your path to healthy skin at home with skin-brightening serums—Vital C Serum: a high potency L-ascorbic acid serum or Chromabright Serum: an alternative to hydroquinone fromulated with Chromanyl Palmitate to help fade dark discoloration.

Whether it's because you want to try before you buy or buy before you fly product kits in smaller sizes are a trend that is here to stay. Women are more mobile than ever placing smaller travel-size items in high demand.

Skin care products are becoming more conveniently sized because women want convenience when they are on the move. Favorite products in both large and small sizes mean one can be kept at home and one packed for travel so skin care regimens can be adhered to regardless of where you are spending the night.

On the go product favorites in smaller sizes for a purse, a vacation or work travel have fueled the trend but savvy consumers are also less willing to buy a larger size without trying a product first. Smaller versions of an unknown product are a safe bet when it comes to trying new things and less of an investment.

Institut DERMed top-selling travel-size treatment kits include everything you need for a complete treatment in a kit. Cleanse with the corrective Cleanser (2oz size); balance  with the correctiveToner (2oz); transform with a corrective Serum, Moisturize with an antioxidant complex; and exfoliate away dead skin cells with a Peel for a refined, youthful complexion.

Kits come in 4 categories covering any skin condition: Renewing for aging to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles; Brightening to even the skin tone for a revitalized, luminous complexion; Clarifying to help reduce the appearance of oily skin for a clean, clear complexion; Soothing to balance and calm sensitive skin.

Institut Dermed Summer Acne Acne breakouts occur when there is an excess of of dirt and oil clogging the pores. Clogged pores promote the proliferation of the bacteria responsible for pimples and  pustules. Summer heat and humidity can intensify oil production and things can get out of control quickly. We've got the perfect summer resolutions to help keep your acne prone skin clear of breakouts.

Topical serums such as Glycolic Serum formulated with Glycolic Acid - an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from fermented rhubarb and Sodium PCA - a non-comedogenic natural humectant and effective moisture-binding agent that preserves the natural moisturizing factor (NMF) of the skin or our Totarol Serum formulated with Totarol Extract - derived from the Totara Tree in New Zealand, used as a gentle alternative to benzoyl peroxide and Tea Tree Oil - also known as melaleuca help to control excess oil.  

An at home Spa treatment once a week of a Clarifying Peel formulated with Pumpkin Enzymes and L-Lactic Acid helps to exfoliate and decongest clogged pores. Follow with a Clarifying Mask formulated with Bio-Fense Probiatic® and Lichochalcone® to absorb oil and decongest pores, and your skin will remain clean and clear.

Don't forget it's very important to protect your skin from UV damage so apply sunblock daily, an application formulated with zinc oxide won't clog your pores.
