The sun is showing its beautiful self again and while you might feel tempted to rush outside and let those beautiful rays hit your skin, let’s chat for a couple of minutes about how to properly protect that skinvestment this spring and summer, you glowing goddess!!
Giving the sun a chance to dance on your skin is the quickest way to ruin all the forward progress you have made on your skin. This is why this tip is always No.1 on our list of necessary steps in your routine. Our recommendation is to use an SPF of 30 (or higher), making sure to apply it 30 minutes before sun exposure and every two hours afterward (no matter the SPF number). Doing this will keep your skin from unnecessary short and long term damage like hyperpigmentation, redness, broken capillaries, and even skin cancer.
Our all time favorite SPFs for that beautiful face are:
– Image Skincare Prevention + Daily Matte (SPF 32) OR Daily Hydration (SPF 50) – $54 each
– Eminence’s Tropical Vanilla Day Cream – $70
These products will ensure that your face and body are protected — helping you to enjoy beautiful, luminous skin all year long.
I know the summers (especially here in Wisconsin) quickly fill up with days at the beach, last minute barbeques or impromptu trips, but maintaining your appointment calendar with your aesthetician during the summer months keeps your skin in the best shape it can possibly be. I suggest booking out your skin treatments every 4-6 weeks to have those dates written on your calendar — this makes those dates an important priority and ensures your skin is being well taken care of.
Vitamin C is a powerhouse ingredient and one that should have a place on everyone’s shelf. Let me spill the tea on this one, your gorgeous skin goddess — Vitamin C not only brightens your skin tone, it is effective for balancing uneven skin tone, reducing skin texture, banishing hyperpigmentation, and honestly just giving your skin gorgeous breath and life. PLUS Vitamin C coupled with SPF keeps your skin well protected from UV rays and fights against a whole host of other free-radicals in your body — keeping that youthful glow around for a long, long time!
One of the best parts about summer is the wind down that it brings with it. The days are warm, the nights are long and filled with fun events, friends and family — and generally the world seems to be a brighter, happier place. Not only is this time good for your soul, but fully enjoying this season and allowing yourself to slow down will produce a glow from the inside out that can’t be matched.
Let’s enjoy the sun and maintain that perfect glow this season, you beautiful angel!
