Even though you are preparing to show more skin this month with summer here, don’t forget that the face and the eyes are the first thing people are going to look at! You’ll want to take the time to have your skin ready for action this summer with these tips focusing on clarity, smoothness and most of all — glow!
4 SUMMER SKIN TIPS
- EXFOLIATE – Exfoliation is crucial for your skin especially during the summer as it removes the dead skin cells and prevents backup, which then allows the moisturizers and water to hydrate your skin! You’ll want to exfoliate before applying a toner, moisturizer or any makeup and always add a cream with SPF afterward. We recommend the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliating Body Scrub!
- APPLICATION – Most people think once is enough when applying moisturizer and sunscreen to the skin. During the summer you definitely want to re-apply every two hours. There are many types of sunscreen out on the market based on skin conditions and sensitivities. We recommend Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF30 or Super Sensitive Shield SPF30.
- REPAIR AND TREAT – Should you run into problems with the sun burning your skin and notice brown spots, coarse skin, wrinkles, etc., you definitely will want to treat these as soon as possible. Load your skin with a hydrating skin cream that has age-fighting ingredients as these have collagen and will work to treat the burns or damage. We recommend the Dermalogica Power Rich line, Multi-Vitamin Power Recovery Masque, and MAP-15 Regenerator.
- HYDRATE – The easiest thing you can do all summer is hydrate your skin, drinking tons of water. You can also keep your skin hydrated with weekly masques and toner spritz. These will rejuvenate the pores and work alongside the moisturizer. We recommend Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist and Skin Hydrating Masque.
