Summer Skin Must Do

Posted in Skin Care

Summer is coming! Summer approaching is so exciting, but just like we have to take care of our skin in the winter months we must do the same in summer months. Whether you’re on the beach, watering your garden, or just walking outside you will be exposing your skin to the sun rays.

SPF -The sun has the ability to cause sagging, wrinkles, thickening, uneven pigmentation, skin cancer, and more. These side effects will make us look older to say the least, so we MUST protect our skin with SPF every day!

Our Favorite Summer SPF

  • Obagi-Sun Shield- With an SPF of 50 this SPF combines UVB absorption and UVA protection in a matte finish. The bonus about this product is it’s hypoallergenic, doesn’t cause acne, and dermatologist tested!
  • Circadia -Light Day Sunscreen-This sunscreen is loaded with antioxidants, humectants, and soothing ingredients while providing UV and environmental protection.

Cleanser- You also want to make sure you are using the appropriate cleanser for your skin. Using the correct cleanser for your skin will help treat any skin issues you may be having, as well as remove the dead skin cells off your face. You can get away with using the same cleanser all year round, unless your skin tends to get dryer or oilier in the summer.

Our Favorite Summer Cleansers

  • Oily Skin- Circadia -Honey Cleanser- This cleanser is great because it cleanses and exfoliates at the same time. It’s great for absorbing excess oil!
  • Dry Skin-Circadia – Amandola Milk Cleanser – The ingredients in this cleanser such as; vitamins, oat and wheat gluten, and natural essences of plants help retain moisture!

Antioxidants- Antioxidant Serums are another summer must. Antioxidants will protect your skin from “free-radical damage and aid in skin protection. Exposure to UV Rays creates “free-radical” damage, therefore it is very important to use your antioxidant in the summer months.

Our Favorite Antioxidant Serums

  • Skin Ceuticals- Phloretin CF Gel – This antioxidant provides environmental protection against “free radical” damage. It will also help even skin tone for a firmer, brighter complexion. It is light in texture so it will not feel too heavy on the skin.

Moisturizer-While you may not want to wear a moisturizer in the summer months because it is already hot outside it is important you do. You can always opt for a light moisturizer so it doesn’t feel as heavy on the skin.

Our Favorite Summer Moisturizer

  • Comfort Zone- Hydramemory Fluid- This fluid will give you a 24 hr protection while lying light on the skin. It is very hydrating and contains hyaluronic acid which helps bind moisture to the skin.

We carry all the products listed at our spa. While the sun is amazing we can’t neglect our beautiful skin in the summer that is when it needs protecting the most!
