Switching It Up For Summer!


Hello and welcome to the Trillium Creek Dermatology blog. My name is Heather Funk, MBA and I am Co-Owner of HH Science found at all of our Trillium Creek Dermatology locations.

Finally – summer is here! Changing seasons not only means a change in weather, but also a change in your skin care routines. From moisturizers to make-up and hair care, in today’s blog, I will share the top summer skin and hair tips that keep you looking and feeling your best all summer long.

Tip #1

Protect your skin from the inside out with an internal and external sunscreen.  Choose a chemical free SPF 50+ or higher to protect your skin safely from both UVA and UVB Rays.  UVA Rays penetrate deep into the skin, which can eventually cause long-term skin damage aging and wrinkles. UVB Rays are more superficial, and are what cause sunburn. Both of these play a role in developing skin cancers. When choosing a sunscreen, look for Zinc oxide and Titanium Dioxide which are chemical- free natural sun blocks that provide a complete block against the sun versus chemical sunscreens that still allow light to filter through the skin.  Our HH Science SPF 50+ sun blocks provide chemical free protection and anti-aging treatments to keep your skin protected and youthful. You can find any of these sunscreen products at any of our HH Science Boutiques, located at all of the Trillium Creek Dermatology locations.

You can also protect yourself from the inside out by pairing your chemical free sunblock with our HH Science Daily Defense Vitamins.  These oral supplements provide internal protection from UVA/UVB rays which gives you an extra boost of protection.

Tip #2

Choose a mineral based make-up to add another layer of chemical free SPF protection.  Titanium dioxide is one of the key essential ingredients in mineral make-up. Titanium dioxide is a natural UV protectant and adds another layer of sun protection!  Mineral make-up is also the healthiest for your skin as it sits on the skin’s surface and lets your skin shine! Our HH Science Mineral Make-Up Line is tolerated by even the most sensitive skin types as it does not irritate the skin or clog the pores.  It truly is an extension of your skin care regimen.

Tip #3

Lighten up your daily moisturizer.  With the humidity levels increasing, natural sebum (oil production) levels rise- so you may find that your skin stays more hydrated on its own.  So, the summer is a great time to switch from a cream-based moisturizer to a lighter weight lotion or serum. For example- if you are using our best-selling HH Science Green Tea Cream you can switch to our HH Science Green Tea Serum which contains the same ingredients in a lighter base!

Tip #4

Protect your Hair from the Summer Sun!

Does your hair care regimen have a natural UV protectant in it?  Does it hydrate, strengthen and repair?

Detox your hair on a weekly basis in the summer to keep your locks healthy and shiny!  Our best-selling HH Science Detox My Hair repair line is made for this time of year as it removes chlorine, product build up, and protects the hair with a natural SPF.

Tip #5

Fake it, not Bake It!

Look like you just got back from a tropical vacation all summer long with our robust line of best-selling self-tanning products and HH Science mineral make-up line.  Your skin will thank you later. A suntan only lasts a couple weeks but the damage sticks with you forever. So, get that glow easily everyday with self-tanners, bronzers and luminizers that highlight your healthy skin!
