Temperatures are rising, the sun is shining, and you’re reaching for your new sundress and sandals. But before you run out the door, you want to make sure that your skin is looking beautiful and fresh. Angela Justus, aesthetician and skincare expert from Paradise Valley Skin Klinic, tells us how to get flawless, sun-kissed skin.
1. Use natural, gentle skincare products.
Look for mild, non-detergent and fragrance-free cleansers. Scan the product labels to see if they contain natural ingredients such as cucumber, aloe, green tea extract or tea tree oil. Using these types of products will give you a clear and healthy complexion without irritating skin. We like Bliss Rose Gold Rescue Cleanser Gentle Foaming Face Wash with rose flower water and willow park. For the price, it’s a great choice for soothing summer skin.
2. Track down a daily moisturizer or foundation with SPF.
Your daily moisturizer, foundation or CC cream should not only hydrate your skin, but also protect it from the sun’s harmful rays. Look for a moisturizer that is at least SPF15. IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+ is one of our faves because it provides coverage, protection and a boost of hydrating serums.
3. Use a gentle exfoliator twice a week.
This will slough away dead skin cells to reveal a fresh and glowing face. Another way to achieve gorgeous skin is by eating fresh fruits and vegetables that are not only delicious, but are great for improving your skin condition. Even better, they not only give you flawless skin, but they get you bikini-ready as well! In addition to drinking lots of water, try incorporating berries, carrots, and mangoes into your diet. A simple, inexpensive choice is Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Exfoliating Daily Facial Scrub.
There are lots of simple tips and tricks to achieve a flawless face for summer. Make sure to use gentle products that contain natural ingredients, always choose a moisturizer that contains SPF, exfoliate regularly, and try to incorporate fruits and veggies into your diet. These easy tweaks will leave you looking fresh, healthy, and glowing just in time for the summer months!
