Summer Skin Care

imagesYou change your wardrobe come summer; it only makes sense to do the same with your skin care!  As our body acclimates to the climate change, it may be necessary to alter our skin care regiment to adjust to humidity, sun, and heat. Even the smallest switch-ups in your routine can make a difference with how your skin looks and feels.

CLEANSE.  For the face, try NeoStrata Foaming Cleanser, it gently exfoliates and removes all makeup and excess oils.  For the body, we recommend Green Envee Body Wash.  While some cleansers dry out the skin, this one actually  prevents dryness and flaking , enhances skin flexibility and  prevents premature aging.

TONE. If you’re starting to see  breakouts on your face and chest (typically a result of warmer weather), treat affected areas with either Neostrata Oil Control Gel or Image Clarifying Tonic.  Both will balance and clarify the skin by removing any excess oils/dirt.

EXFOLIATE.  For bright/smooth/soft skin, exfoliate the body  1-3 times a week. For the face we recommend trying Glo Brightening Polish, this gently removes any dead skin cells that have accumulated over time.   For the body, use Green Envee Body Scrub to polish the skin’s surface without disrupting its delicate balance.

MOISTURIZE. Sun exposure and temperature extremes (sweltering outdoors, then air conditioning once you’re inside) can leave skin tight and dry. Your usual lotion may feel a little too rich and heavy in the heat, so exchange it for a lighter formula. Try Image Hydrating Serum for the face and Green Envee’s Body Lotion for the body.  Both are non-greasy, lightweight, and absorbs easily into the skin.

SPF. You hear it time and time again for good reason!  Sunscreen will slow down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin and protect against discoloration of the skin.  Our recommendation is to use Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46 for the face and Elta MD UV SPF 45 Aero Spray for the body.

GET A SUNLESS TAN.  Instead of exposing yourself to damaging UV rays, get a spray tan!  We use top of the line Norvell products and our staff has advanced training, ensuring that you will leave with a flawless tan.  We also carry Norvell sunless tanning products for at home use to maintain your spray tan!

INDULGE. Come in once a month for a custom facial, or try a Microderm or (my favorite )Ultrasonic Facial.  We also recommend doing  a full body scrub with hydrating massage!   These are great ways to enhance all the work you’ve put into your new skin care regiment at home.  You can also check out our monthly specials throughout the summer.. we always customize our specials to the changing seasons!
