A wide brim hat, full frame sunglasses and a broad spectrum, antioxidant fortified sunscreen are a must for summer healthy skin. There are additional things you can do throughout the summer to stay on track with your skin rejuvenation regimen, and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.
Reapplication is Key
No woman wants to go through the hassle of washing their face and reapply makeup every time we need to reapply sunscreen. We recommend touching up your sunscreen with Colorescience mineral sunscreen, that contains SPF 30 sheer coverage and protection, in a portable retractable brush. #alwaysreapply
Treat Your Skin From Within
Rich in antioxidants, and able to deliver hydration to skin for radiant complexion, cantaloupe is the melon of choice fro summer healthy skin. We also like watermelon and citrus, berries, tomatoes and nuts salad for their skin health benefits.
Keep The Face
Keep a bottle of face mist chilled in your cooler when you are at the beach, on your hike or off on a picnic. At SkinMD, we recommend Mystic Hydrating Treatment, Purifying Toner, or the Clarifying or Hydrating Setting Mists. Ask your SkinMD skin expert which mist is best for you.
Easy On the Eyes
Sun, sea, sand and air travel in summer. These exposures can take their toll on the fragile skin around the eyes. Use regency revitalizing Eye Cream. It has a light texture and contains next generation growth factors, peptides, powerful antioxidants and superior moisturizing agents to prevent and even reverse fine lines and wrinkles. It also reduces puffiness and the appearance of dark under-eye circles.
Summer Skin Pigmentation Care
In summer, the dark pigment splotches of melasma and “sun spots” darken in appearance. We recommend that in addition to your AM antioxidant cream and broad spectrum sunscreen use, continue using a pigment control cream nightly. Ask Dr. Balogun for the best recommendations for you.
Noninvasive skin treatments during the summer will also help significantly to keep pigment from reaccumulating in your skin
hands have thinner skin and are constantly exposed to UV rays and water, making them susceptible to wrinkling and pigmentation. Use a half pump of your C25 cream on the back of your hands, followed by your sunscreen lotion, to protect and hydrate.
Don’t Forget Your Lips!
UV rays are drying to delicate lip tissue. Keep your lips hydrated and luscious with CityLips Advanced Formula with hyaluronic acid plumping spheres and collagen peptides. Apply along with EltaMD moisturizing lip balm with SPF 31.
Summer heat and humidity can increase breakouts. Use your Clarisonic brush to cleanse skin thoroughly and traumatically in AM and PM. For oily, breakout-prone skin, we love Epionce Purifying Toner to help reduce surface bacteria and control excess oil. Reduce bumps and calm inflammation from breakouts with a custom acne facial treatment every 3-4 weeks during the summer to keep skin healthy, or let us recommend an on-the-go treatment you can take with you on your travels.
With these tips, you can enjoy your summer and keep your skin healthy, youthful and radiant all summer long.
