Prep Your Skin for Summer

After months of cold, dry weather, it’s time to showcase your summer best! Check out the tips below from our team to get your skin in perfect shape for the warm summer months and show off that healthy glow!

First things first – exfoliation.
In order to let your summer glow shine through, we need to slough off dry, dead skin cells. Be sure to choose a scrub that is perfect for your skin – if your skin is sensitive or especially dry, you may need a gentler scrub. Be sure to target your legs, hands, arms, feet – and anywhere else that is going to be on display this summer! Regular exfoliation will keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.

Get sun-kissed… without the sun!
Nothing says summer more than a golden glow. Save your skin by treating yourself to an airbrush tan, the safest and most natural way to get bronzed skin. And bonus – you’ll start the season off with bronzed skin, versus waiting until mid-July! Be sure to prep skin before a spray tan by exfoliating and moisturizing all over.

Switch Up Your Routine
Your skincare routine, that is! The sweaty days of summer can make your skin more prone to breakouts. Ditch heavy winter moisturizers and cut back on multi-step product layering. Look for cleansers and moisturizers that will hydrate while also providing a breathable barrier to the skin: silicones, squalene and glycerin are your go-to ingredients. For makeup, look for products that can do some double duty on your skin, like BB creams that contain a moisturizer, foundation and SPF-in-one. Need help finding the right products?

Reverse Damage
More UV exposure means deeper wrinkles and extra brown spots. Many dermatologists suggest getting monthly spa treatments – think microdermabrasion facials – to achieve great summer skin. Nothing beats a professional facial for getting your skin extra clean and removing dead skin cells that clog pores and leave skin looking dull. View our facial and skincare treatments here
