Summer is almost here, and it’s the perfect time to switch up your skincare! A few tips to help you get ready...
Throw away all expired makeup and skincare products. Yes, it might be painful to get rid of some of your favorites, but if it looks old, toss it! Quality product chemistry and formulations are essential, but even the best products won't last forever, and you don't want to use products with bacteria build-up.
Clean and sanitize all of your products. 70% isopropyl alcohol is an excellent tool for keeping your products clean and protecting against unwanted viruses and bacteria – a simple mist or wipe, and it will evaporate away quickly.
Refresh your skincare regimen with light and fresh skincare and makeup products. Especially in the summer, you want to make sure to be using products that are light and allow your skin to breathe. Replace whatever you threw away in Step 1 with new products, and you’ll be ready for a fantastic summer.
Summer must-haves include:
Hyaluronic Acid - Keeps skin hydrated and supple while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles. I love Sorella Apothecary's Main Squeeze Hydrating Serum for optimal hydration and strengthening your skin! This ultra-hydrating, lightweight serum also contains Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, this powerful ingredient reduces inflammation and restores the skin’s natural barrier to harmful pollutants, making skin look and feel refreshed and revived.
Vitamin C - Helps treat uneven skin tone and fine lines by producing collagen and elastin, preventing premature aging in the skin. Lira Clinical's Pro Lite Serum and C15 Intense Booster complement one another, correcting existing damage (pigmentation) and defending your skin for the future.
SPF - Protects the skin by blocking the sun’s UVA/UVB rays, helping prevent pigmentation changes and photodamage, sunburn and ultimately skin cancer. Whether you prefer a matte, hydrating, sheer, or a tinted SPF, my Tizo sunscreen line has anything you want and everything you need for the ultimate sun protection. It is also Reef Friendly! ❤🐟
One Last Favorite... Sorella Apothecary's Facial in a Bottle helps improve dark spots and keeps those fine lines away. This azelaic serum uses a plant-based retinol alternative, bakuchoil, to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and breakouts overnight. It is a great summer alternative to your nightly retinol routine.
Now you're ready for summer! Remember, don't forget your hat and sunglasses, and remember SPF is your BFF😎...
