While Summer is time for fun in the sun, it can also be a season of skin damage if you’re not careful. As temperatures rise and we spend more time outdoors, it’s important to prep the skin for the months ahead. In this post, we’ll share four tips on how to get Summer-ready skin. 


  1. Exfoliate 

Exfoliating is an essential step in preparing your skin for Summer. By removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, your skin will look and feel smoother. Exfoliating can also help prevent ingrown hairs and improve the effectiveness of your other skincare products. Choose one that’s gentle enough for your skin type (over-exfoliation can lead to irritation).  Consider Perfect Glycolic Treatments 15% and Mint Facial Polish. Our Glycolic Treatments are formulated with glycolic acid and skin conditioners to deeply exfoliate dull skin and promote cell turnover. Mint Facial Polish is a deeply exfoliating scrub that effectively removes impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin refreshed and radiant. Its highly concentrated formula gently detoxifies the skin while preventing over-drying for a brighter, younger-looking complexion. 


  1. Moisturize 

Hot temperatures and the sun can dehydrate skin, leading to dryness, flakiness, and even premature aging. AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+ not only provides broad-spectrum sun protection, but hyaluronic & lactic acids and vitamins E & B5 deeply moisturize and reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Sensitive Skin Moisturizer is an excellent choice for those with delicate skin.  It’s lightweight and enriched with vitamins A and E, to replenish moisture and nourish the skin. Liposomes help restore skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Our Omega 3 Facial Crème is a potent plant-based facial cream that effectively nourishes and heals the skin, thanks to its rich combination of omega 3 ingredients, plant-based lipids, shea butter and antioxidants. This cream also reduces redness and inflammation while shielding the skin against environmental damage. 



  1. Protect 

To protect the skin, it’s essential to apply sunscreen every day and not just at the beach or pool. The sun’s UV rays can damage the skin even on cloudy days so use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least SPF.  Be sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours, or more frequently if you’re swimming or sweating. We recommend Triple Duty Plus Sunscreen SPF 35+, a 100% all-physical, mineral sunscreen that provides powerful protection and a sheer tint for an even glow. Sheer Physical Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a high-performance, mineral-based sunscreen that provides complete coverage against UVA and UVB rays. With its lightweight, hyaluronic acid-infused formula, Sheer Physical not only protects the skin, it also keeps it looking healthy and supple. Its water-resistant formula ensures makes it ideal for outdoor activities. 


  1. Correct 

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect skin from damage from UV rays and other environmental stressors. It also helps brighten the skin, reduce the appearance hyperpigmentation, and promote collagen production. Incorporating vitamin C into your skincare routine will give your skin a boost this summer. CE Serum is formulated with vitamins C & E and ferulic acid to protect the skin against environmental damage, reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, and leave the skin looking bright and fresh.
