Can you feel it in the air? Summer is right around the corner! That means more time spent outside. Although we PREACH sun-safe skin care all year round, summer is definitely a HOT time of year for skin concerns to develop. Get ahead of the game by introducing some of our favourite sun-safe, free radical protecting products into your skin care routine. That way, by the time fall comes around, you'll already be steps ahead.
Here are our essential products we have going all year long.
1. SPF Moisturizer, Tint & Lip Balm
This is an obvious one. Despite what your aunt Sally tells you, YES you should be wearing an SPF year-round. It is especially important to be applying an SPF during the summer months because the heat of the sun and UV rays are strong in this season which could damage the skin cells.
We are LOVING the new Hydrating SPF 30 from Sorella Apothecary. This product provides both UVA/UVB protection and is water resistant up to 30 minutes. It has vitamin B5, which is known to repair the skin barrier, leaving your skin deeply moisturized. Psst...it's also an EXCELLENT makeup base.
Another all-star product from Sorella Apothecary. A tinted, broad spectrum SPF 50 that provides UVA/UVB protection. This product is hydrating and packed with powerful antioxidants that provide extra protection from pollution-induced free radicals.
Use the Tinted Dew Drops as the final step in your skin care routine (same as SPF).
*Available in four tints
One area we frequently forget is the lips, which deserve equal protection, especially since they are out in the open and exposed to damaging elements. Keep those lips healthy and hydrated by using a lip product containing SPF.
We carry Eminence's Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm everywhere we go! An all-natural SPF 15 that defends lips against harmful UV exposure while simultaneously relieving dryness and restoring softness.
2. Post-Sun Healers
We call this product Mother Nature's Polysporin. If you spend time outdoors in any season, we highly suggest adding the Repair Balm to your skin routine. Here's why:
It repairs dry skin
It reduces redness due to dryness
It replenishes moisture
Trust us when we say if your skin has the slightest irritation, the Repair Balm soothes it fast!
We call this product liquid gold. If you haven't heard of the Facial Recovery Oil from Eminence, consider this your introduction. A couple drops of this luxurious oil goes a long way to help relieve dryness in your skin from sun and water.
There's a reason it's an award winning, best seller!
Hot tip: Add a couple drops of Recovery Oil in your palm with a pea-size amount of Repair Balm to double-up on healing powers!
3. Citrus & Kale Serum
Vitamin C helps protect the skin from many issues, including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, dryness, and more!
We recommend applying this serum in the morning with your SPF to double-down on UV-protectant properties.
Go ahead and sit poolside. Take a plunge in a lake. Enjoy the awesomeness that is summer but always remember to protect your skin!
