For everyone who got to have some fun in the sun this weekend, we’re hoping you practiced responsible sun safety and stayed protected. If you didn’t, you’re likely facing the belated start to your workweek with an uncomfortable burn, which doesn’t make the return any easier. Luckily for you, Theraderm’s founder and CEO, Dr. James Beckman, has a great solution for eliminating those painful sunburn symptoms that will also restore skin to a healthy condition.
A sunburn is technically a form of injury. Any injury to the skin will stimulate an immune system response, causing symptoms of pain, swelling, redness and heat. To fight these symptoms, Dr. Beckman recommends using a lactic acid toner. He suggests this because L-Lactic acid is the primary regulator of the immune system. In Dr. Beckman’s experiences, the application of a lactic acid toner like Theraderm Fruit Acid Exfoliant to burned skin abruptly stops the inflammatory sequences of the immune system and prevents the associated symptoms. This has been observed in a variety of significant second degree burns, such as sunburns, thermal burns (touching a hot stove), laser treatments, and chemical peels.
It must be applied within four hours of the burn, but in most cases, when Fruit Acid Exfoliant was applied within 1-2 hours, the visible symptoms were reversed very quickly. One study on a client with severe sunburn showed a complete elimination of the appearance of redness within 24 hours. Pain will disappear, blisters do not form, and in 4-5 days there is no evidence of prior burn injury.
For best results, Dr. Beckman suggests following Fruit Acid Exfoliant with OPC Reparative Gel, which is the best antioxidant serum out there.
OPC Reparative Gel will soothe sun-damaged skin. It contains cold-pressed aloe barbadensis leaf extract, which calms, soothes and heals. This aloe-enriched serum is packed with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, a powerful humectant that attracts moisture to the skin. Furthermore, OPC Reparative Gel protects and assists the repair of collagen and elastin, which are necessary for a strong skin matrix.
Using these powerful products together will alleviate painful burn symptoms and leave you with healthy, great-looking skin. Visit Theraderm today to try them!
