Summertime outdoor activities and increased travel demand means more exposure to the sun. Now is the perfect time to establish a daily skin care routine that can help keep you safe in the hot seasonal months.
We crafted a summer skin checklist that's easy to follow every morning for a flawless, hydrating look:
Start with washing your face!
Applying a good cleanser should be an important start to your day, effectively eliminating the dirt, oil, and pollutants that can build up on your skin. Elon Daily Facial Cleanser is for daily use. Both green tea and cucumber extract provide skin soothing properties and hydration.
This is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine!
Toning balances the PH levels in your skin, treats blemishes, and minimizes pores and discoloration. It also gives you an extra scrub, ridding any leftover dirt and makeup. We love this alcohol free rose petal toner by Thayers. It works well for most skin types!
*Pro tip- many toners use alcohol in their products that can cause skin irritation or dehydration. Avoid this ingredient for longterm healthy skin.
Daily moisturizing acts as a barrier for your skin and helps to prevent environmental damage.
Our Vitamin C Moisturizer is a great lightweight formula that minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging properties that brightens your skin and boosts collagen production for a youthful, healthier face.
After a long winter, we’re anxious to get outdoors, but it’s important to consider skin safety.
Lather up with an SPF of at least 30+.
This level of protection will prevent harmful UV rays – the culprit directly responsible for early aging. Sweat and water can diminish sunscreen protection. Therefore, it’s important to reapply following swimming or extraneous outdoor activities. There are lots of good sunscreen options available but if you will be traveling this summer to a tropical area make sure to go with a reef-safe sunscreen to protect our oceans.
*Pro tip: Wear a cute wide-brim hat to protect your hair, scalp, and shoulders.
