Emerge Tulsa Explains the 5 Best Ways to Prevent Sunburn

Emerge Tulsa Botox Prevent Sunburn

Summer is here! Sun worshippers are heading to the lake, pool, and beach to lay out and soak in the rays. In today’s blog from Emerge Tulsa, we discuss the five best ways to prevent sunburn.

1. Sunscreen

Water-resistant sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher does the trick when you’re at the beach, swimming, or spending a lot of time outdoors. Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going outdoors, because it takes that long for your skin to absorb it. Apply at least 1 ounce to the exposed parts of your skin, including face, neck, ears, arms, legs, tops of your feet, and back, as much as possible. Reapply sunscreen after two hours for best results. Emerge Tulsa offers some fantastic products with SPF protection.

2. Clothing

Clothing offers a reliable way to keep sunburn away. If possible, wear long sleeves and long pants made of lightweight material in colors like white or beige. Consider clothing with UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) in the fabric. UPF of 50 or higher helps block up to 98% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. The staff at Emerge Tulsa can recommend UPF clothing for you.

3. Stay Indoors

Think about staying indoors during the part of the day when the sun’s rays are most intense — from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s probably still going to be hot from 4 to 8 p.m., so you have plenty of time to get out and enjoy the warm weather without as much exposure to the sun.

4. Seek Shade

Stay in the shade whenever possible. This is particularly true for kids, who are more vulnerable to the heat. Set up your picnic next to a large tree. Lay out a hammock between two palm trees at your tropical destination. Watch animals at the zoo from the comfort of a covered awning. Take an umbrella with you to the golf course in between shots.

5. Little Things

Don’t forget the little things to protect you from sunburn! Lip balm with sunscreen is crucial to protecting your lips. UVA/UVB sunglasses are a must, but make sure they cover all of your eyes to prevent bright sunlight from reaching your pupils. You can even get sunburn on a cloudy day, so you can also try these tips from Emerge Tulsa when it’s cloudy outside.

Spa Facials: How Does DiamondGlow Work?

DiamondGlow Spa Facial Emerge Tulsa

Our clients continue to ask us about Diamond Glow, the revolutionary skin treatment and spa facial. Is it a dermal infusion? Do patients undergo an injection? Today’s blog from Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa explains how DiamondGlow spa facial treatments work.

Who benefits from DiamondGlow?

DiamondGlow is a spa facial treatment using advanced technology to deliver nutrients to stressed skin. Candidates for this treatment include people with:

  • Mild wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Dry or dehydrated skin
  • Oily prone skin
  • Congestion
  • Rough skin texture
  • Acne
  • Large pores

How is DiamondGlow different from other spa facial treatments?

DiamondGlow does several things that many spa facials treatments simply can’t do. The system combines non-invasive exfoliation with products that deliver nutrients directly to the skin. It works without crystals or chemical exfoliants. Even better, DiamondGlow has specific treatments that provide the right products.

What happens during a DiamondGlow procedure?

Our team begins by selecting the serum infusion levels based on your skin type and serum chosen.  We guide the suction wand across your face using a horizontal or vertical motion, which can create a slight sensation of sanding across your face. It feels almost like a cat licking your face! The treatment is complete after two passes.

Three things happen at once. First, the exfoliant helps remove dry and damaged skin. Then a cleanser deep-cleans the skin’s surface and pores. Third, serums deliver professional-grade nutrients to the skin because it has a high receptivity level. DiamondGlow spa facials create plumpness, volume, hydration, tone, and texture all at once.

How long does a DiamondGlow session last?

DiamondGlow lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour per session. Our on-staff medical professionals oversee each procedure. For this reason, you cannot book DiamondGlow through our website.

How long before I see results from this spa facial?

Immediately after treatment, patients often report that skin appears smoother, plumper, and more hydrated. Long-term results may happen within a few weeks. Entire courses of treatment with DiamondGlow spa facials could run a few months. Each session lasts no more than an hour, and you can resume normal activities right after leaving our office.

Will I feel any pain?

You should experience little to no pain with a DiamondGlow spa facial. Your face may appear red or flushed after your treatment session. This is normal. The redness should go away quickly.

Spa Facials: Cold Weather Skin Care Tips

Spa Facial Cold Weather Tips Emerge Tulsa

Spa facials help rejuvenate your skin and achieve a natural glow at any time of year. Keeping your skin looking great during the winter can be a challenge, even with a facial to bring back your skin’s health. Today’s blog from Emerge Medical & Well Spa, where we do many types of spa facials, discusses some cold weather skincare tips to keep you looking and feeling your best.

Moisturize

The air is dryer during winter months. You probably also take hot baths and showers because the air feels cooler, even if you turn the heat up in your home. Higher-temperature water dries out your skin more than cool water. When you combine hot showers with more handwashing to avoid spreading germs, you get the perfect recipe for dry skin. Take advantage of your favorite moisturizer to keep your skin soft and supple during the winter. The spa facial experts at Emerge Tulsa can recommend products for you. 

Rely on Gentle Cleansers

Use gentle cleansers on your skin. Harsh products may strip moisture from your skin rather than preserve it. Cold weather means your skin needs all the help it can get! Do yourself a favor and use gentle products with natural ingredients or ones without fragrances. Spa facials can use gentle products on your skin to preserve its natural glow. 

Lower Your Air and Water Temperature

Hot temperatures for your indoor air and shower water dry out your skin more compared to cooler temperatures. Keep your air temperature lower and bundle up with a sweatshirt or sweater. Take warm showers rather than hot showers. Some of our spa facial regimens can help your skin recover from dryness, although we recommend less exfoliating during cold weather.

Use a Humidifier 

A humidifier can help your skin stay pliable in your home, whether you use a small model for a single room or invest in a whole-house humidifier. Humid air in the winter can also alleviate allergies or colds, in addition to being healthier for your skin! See how our spa facials can help relieve symptoms associated with dry air.

Eat Healthy

Much of your winter skincare routine comes from the outside, such as spa facials and gentle moisturizers. However, your skin’s health also comes from beneath the surface. Eat healthy foods that support your skin’s health, such as lean meats, nuts, and fish. Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables also help keep your skin feeling great, including cranberries, blueberries, pumpkin, pomegranate, and squash.
