The Products You Need in Your Summer Skin Care Repertoire
We find ourselves suddenly in the middle of the summer. For many of us this means much time spent outdoors in the sun and heat. Whether we are running errands, sitting on the beach, barbecuing, hiking or just day dreaming, it is important to protect ourselves from the elements during the day, and then nourish our skin later in the evening.
Here are some of my favorite products to keep you covered from face to toe all summer long.
Best Summer Skin Care Products For Face
- Institut Esthederm Cellular Water: Great for a quick spray if you’re on the beach, out for a walk or simply enjoying the outdoors. Cellular Water rehydrates the skin and restores its vital energy.
- Heaven Skincare Ella Jane Celebrity Skin Wipes & URSA Major Essential Face Wipes: Both of these are organic and great for men and women on the go. They not only rid the face (and the rest of the body) of grime, but also tone the skin; whether you are traveling, après gym or getting off the subway particularly schvitzy.
- Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23: An anti-aging, light daily moisturizer with all the sun protection you need rolled up in one product. It is perfect for summer and is dermatologically formulated and tested, making it well suited for all skin types.
- Institut Esthederm Time Technology Cream: A light, revitalizing moisturizer, perfect for the summer and/or traveling. It contains algae extract that detoxifies and promotes microcirculation. This fresh cream contains a subtle, shimmery glow, so even with the faintest hint of a tan you won’t need to wear much makeup. It is perfect for going out on a summer evening.
- Juvena Pure Lifting Peeling Powder: This cleanser is the perfect at-home mini facial. It contains bamboo particles that give your face a stellar non-abrasive clean. This cleanser is especially good in summer if you have been in the sun all day and/or layering on SPF, which can clog pores.
- Cosmetics 27 Baume 27: Great as an après sun moisturizer. It is cooling and calming, especially after a day outdoors or in the sun. During the summer, this balm is particularly well suited as a restorative and reparative nighttime face cream. It quite literally slows down the oxidation or aging process as it protects against free radicals, one of the main causes of aging. Don’t forget to massage into your décolleté as well.
Best Summer Skin Care Products For Eyes
- Cosmetics 27 Eyes 27: Containing nanomolecules, this lightweight under eye cream is perfect for use day and night during the summer. Great under makeup or on its own.
Best Summer Skin Care Products For Body
Remember that the body is just as much in need of care as the face. When you return from a day in the sun, the body requires moisture and rehydration.
- Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm is an all-in-one intensive anti-aging moisturizer for the entire body. It deeply nourishes and calms dehydrated skin.
- If you prefer body oil, look no further than Heaven Skincare Cellulite and Firming Oil. Its essential oils make it a great après sun product, soothing and calming the skin.
