Summer Essentials at Apotheke

June 25, 2018

Summer is here! In San Diego we pretty much experience summer year around but with weddings, vacations, and frequent beach trips in full swing here are a few essentials for summer glowing skin. 


You might not know this, but the way most sunscreens work—because they are chemically based—is by being ABSORBED into your body. Depending on your degree of inner beauty hippie, this may bother you a little, a lot, or not at all. The chemicals protect you by absorbing the sun's rays. Some of the ingredient names you may see on labels include avobenzone, oxybenzone, Mexoryl SX and SL, octocrylene, homosalate and octisalate.

Mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, don't get absorbed into your body at all. They sit on top of your skin and REFLECT the sun's rays. There are two ingredients you'll see, usually in combination: zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. I only retail and use mineral sunscreens in my skin care studio. 


TIZO Mineral Sunscreen is suitable for all skin types and comes in a variety of textures. I have something for everyone! Whether your skin is oily or dry, you like dewy or matte, or prefer tinted over sheer; TIZO has got it covered. It also comes in water resistant for my frequent beach lovers or for my outdoor athletes. Ask me for a free sample.


Lira Clinical  BB Creme 

An all-in-one beauty revolution, Lira Clinical BB Cremes can be used as your daily moisturizer, SPF 30 sun protection and full coverage flawless foundation. Full of anti-aging ingredients Lira BB Cremes are also anti-inflammatory and healing!

I use this everyday!! and love the glow it gives my skin. I currently carry the colors Tint and Sienna (which are for Light to Medium Skin Tones). Ask to try the next time your in!


Summer Treatments


Mask while you Wax

I now offer the option to mask with your routine waxing sessions! 

ToGoSpa Collagen Eye Masks provide cooling relief for headaches, allergies, late nights or fatigue. These collagen eye pads moisturize, plump, and add nutrients to the delicate under-eye zone, creating a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. They take just 15-20 minutes to work and are an additional $7 to add to your wax session. You can book the Mask while you Wax along with your wax appointment on my booking site.
