Diving Into Summer Skin

Looking for the best skin care for summer? Well you’ve come to the right place! Summer has arrived, and you know what that means, time for basking in the sun, water sports and baseball games. This means, more chances of sun burns, oily skin, clogged pores and dehydrated skin from all the harsh UV rays. We understand  everyone wants  the perfect glow, like Tahitian royalty, but there is no better time  to fill your beach bag with the best summer skin care out there.

With summer fully packed with longer days and activities we will talk about for years, it is important that we learn how to properly repair all the damage done. These are the 7 doses of skin care products that will boost and recharge your skin all summer!

7 Must have Skin Care Products for summer

  1. First up Cleanser

Combat the oil from sun exposure with a foaming cleanser. Try Using - EltaMD Foaming Facial Cleanser. Rinse away all the daily elements with gentle oil-free cleanser, infused with a blend of enzymes and amino acids, great for gently removing dirt, makeup and oil out of pores. It leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed! Safe for all skin types. Make sure to cleanse the skin twice daily for best results.

  1. Exfoliate

It is vital to exfoliate 2-3 times a week to  unclog pores from impurities.

By exfoliating you speed up your cell turn over, giving your skin the ability to heal properly, which then aids in better product penetration. Skin  feels smoother and has a healthier appearance. Try Using - NeoStrata Skin Active Exfoliating Wash: Allow this gentle exfoliate to hydrate and balance your skin, infused with aloe, chamomile, cucumber and rosemary extracts that leaves your skin smooth and texture free.

  1. Repair It.

Serums being the smallest molecule can penetrate deeper into to the skin to create actual change within the skin. Since exposure to UV rays can alter our DNA and ultimately cause cell death and skin cancer, it is important to have a daily dose of vitamin enriched serums as a part of our skin care routine. Try using - GlyMed Plus Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant great for restoring youthfulness back to the skin. It helps lighten and repair skin from free radial damage. This specific product works wonders on sunburned damaged skin.

  1. Heal Time.

Even though we like to believe we listen and constantly apply and re-apply our sun screen, sun happens. The best advice for inflamed skin is to use a cooling mask after being exposed to the sun; this help slows down the process of sun induced erythema (sunburn).

Try Using - Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque. This mask soothes tired and inflamed skin after a long day at the beach. With ingredients such as Aloe Vera and chamomile, your skin feels less irritated and fully hydrated. Bonus less lightly to peel!


Do you ever feel like you need a pick me up throughout the day? Try using - Peter Thomas Roth Aloe Tonic Mist. Use on freshly washed skin to wipe away access dirt and oil and give your skin an added hydration boost. You can spray this product throughout the day when skin needs to feel revived. Key ingredients are aloe vera, vitamin E and micellized vitamin A.

  1. Moisturize that Face

It is imperative to use moisturizer in the summer, even know the weather is not as chilly as the cold winter months. Summer sun dehydrates our skin’s natural moisture levels creating TEWL (Trans epidermal water loss) leaving the skin dull and lifeless. Moisturize twice daily with a light weight daily moisturizer to hydrate and combat the oil. Try using - Tu'eL Daily Protect Oil Free Moisturizer: This oil-free moisturizer slows down oil protection, while fighting off bacteria. Main ingredients aregreen tea, cucumber and vitamin E, truly the miracle trio to help fight off age damaging effects caused by the sun.

  1. Body Care

How often do you anti-age below the neck? That’s what I thought.Did you know this can lead to sagging skin, eczema flare ups as well as cause cellulite to appear sooner? The main cause of aging skin is lack of moisture.  Try using - Phytomer Soothing, Moisturizing After-Sun Milk. Skin appears soft and nourished when used daily. Maintain the moisture levels in your skin and combat irritated or dehydrated areas affected by the sun. This product is wonderful for locking in moisture. Main ingredients are Algae Extract, Shea Butter, Amino Acids and glycerin.
