Summer Proof Your Skin

The harsh summer sun can take a toll on your skin - follow these tips to keep it healthy and radiant all summer long

HYDRATE

Hydrate your skin from the inside out by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep it moisturized and supple. Try infusing it with fresh ingredients like cucumbers, lemon, mint etc. to switch up the flavors and make it more enjoyable to drink.

Eating whole foods high in water content (like melons, peaches, oranges, tomatoes and celery to name a few) can also help boost your daily water intake.

Use hydrating serums, like our Hydra-Plump 2.5% Hyaluronic Serum, lightweight moisturizers, like our Advanced Daily Moisturizer, and even aloe vera, day and night to keep skin feeling refreshed.

PROTECT

Proper skincare means sunscreen is not just for your face! Sunscreen should be applied to any exposed skin, including areas that may be covered by clothing but still receive some sunlight, such as your chest, shoulders, the back of your hands and back of your neck.

Wear wide-brimmed hats and lip balms with SPF protection and be sure to reapply every 2 hours. Its also important to remember that even on cloudy or overcast days, UV rays can still penetrate through the clouds and cause damage to your skin, so sunscreen should be worn every day, regardless of the weather.

GLOW

This natural antioxidant helps protect the skin from free radical damage caused by UV radiation and environmental pollutants. It also helps to brighten and even out skin tone, boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It's best to apply a vitamin C serum, such as our Vitamin C30X Anti-Aging Serum in the morning, after cleansing and toning your skin but before applying your sunscreen and makeup. This will help ensure that your skin is protected throughout the day and that your vitamin C serum can work.

KEEP COOL

Cold skincare products can provide a soothing and refreshing sensation when applied to the skin, especially on hot and humid days. By keeping your products in the fridge, you can enjoy a more comfortable and calming experience while helping to reduce puffiness, redness, and inflammation.

Skincare products like our Age-Reverse Multi-Correct Eye Cream and Vitamin C & Turmeric Glow Gel Mask are formulated with cooling ingredients like aloe and cucumber, whose effectiveness and performance can be enhanced by storing them in a fridge.

Additionally, keeping these products in a cool, dark place, such as a fridge, can help preserve their potency and extend their shelf life as well as reducing bacteria growth. For a complete DIY spa-like experience, try putting cucumbers or tea bags steeped in cold water over your eyes while you relax in the shade.
