Summer Skincare Rescue

Publication: Cheeky Chicago

You swear you applied sunscreen every 30 minutes but somehow your face is beet red. We have all been there. Redness, dryness and flaking from accidental sun exposure can be unsightly and quite painful. Not to mention the resulting hyperpigmentation/melasma which are commonly referred to as sun spots. For starters, Leah Chavie Skincare Boutiquesays when choosing an SPF, look for one that is “broad spectrum, provides UVA and UVB protection, and reapply. Applying once in the morning will not protect you all day.” For some much needed repair and restoration for sun damaged skin, try Leah Chavie’s 24-Karat Gold Collagen Wet Mask. The nourishing facial treatment will help to soothe, hydrate and restore the skin.

Wacky spa treatments

Snail secretion rejuvenator
Folks in Chile allegedly have their finger on the pulse when it comes to sunscreen trends—via a snail secretion rejuvenator. They say snail slime will not only revitalize the skin’s surface, but it also serves as a shield against pollution and UVA/UVB rays.
Local reaction
 Leah Chavie of Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique (2457 N Halsted St, 773-327-7051) isn’t impressed with the goopy regimen. “I understand people are always looking for the next big thing in skin care, but there [isn’t a need] for the fluff,” she says. “These wacky trends are just ways to get people’s money.”
Try instead
 The boutique offers an Intense Pulsed Light treatment ($250) that targets unsightly age and sun spots.
