Just because you may not be beachbound doesn't mean you can't get prepped for your best summer skin. Even though most of us are summering in place, we can still enjoy the warm, balmy air, which is perfect for morning pick-ups or after-dinner strolls with the pooch.
Summer is a time of laid-back ease, and though we've all been stressed of late, we’re bringing the heat with some tips to help you enjoy the (self-care) sunshine.
To get ready and set for the season, check out some of our recommends on getting summer strong right now:
If you WFH, chances are you may not be hydrating from home. Don't forget to drink water in between zoom calls to keep from getting dehydrated. And since summer is upon us, fix a big pitcher of water with slices of something citrusy to give your H20 a bit of zest or make some sun tea on your sill.
As for hydrating tired skin, try our Re-Quench Water Cream Hyaluronic + Electrolyte Moisturizer. Don’t let the lightweight gel texture fool you – it’s clinically proven to rebalance moisture on your face in just one use without any oils.
Don't get the summer scaries. Keep on practicing social distancing, and don't forget to wear a mask. Cute masks are having a moment, but they also serve a purpose. We are all desperate to be outside sipping something sparkly with our friends but stay strong and healthy by being smart.
Also, don't forget about your SPF, protection from the sun is essential even with limited time outdoors, but it also helps fight damage from blue light as we all continue to overdo our screen time. We love Full Screen™ Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Clear Finish for a natural, barely-there approach to full-coverage protection. Prefer a mineral sunscreen? We’ve got you covered with our Full Screen™ Broad Spectrum SPF 30 100% Mineral Vanishing Tint to defend and nourish skin daily.
We all could use a boost right now. Make time for an extra Facetime with friends and family, take time to read a new book (or even just a magazine), or check out a week's worth of recipes from the NY Times to give your taste buds a treat. The key to resilience and strength is staying the course and making time for all the loveliness that matters in life.
And give your skin barrier a boost with our SD Advanced™ PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate. Why not focus on building a better skin barrier this summer to keep your skin strong, healthy, and youthful?
We don't know if you feel the same way, but exercising has been our numero uno way to not only deal with stress but to stay strong, both physically and mentally. And yes, summer does require a bit of skin to show, so why not shape up with any number of amazing workouts streaming online these days? We currently love Corepower Yoga's amazing sculpt class and Isaac Boot's Torch'd, the insanely challenging dance/yoga workout favored by celebs like Lisa Rinna. Dance like you mean it, and in the privacy of your own home, so who cares how silly you look?
And to tighten up your skincare, consider Peptight™ Tightening & Brightening Face Serum.
It's a peptide-powered way to tighten and brighten your skin, and the yellow packaging is a good perk me up for your medicine cabinet. Think sunshine in a bottle.
Staying cool can mean a lot of things – from keeping the A/C going to taking cold showers, we dig a summer cool down. And speaking of cool, don't let stress take the good vibes out of your summer fun. Take aforementioned long walks when you can, visit a favorite farm stand for some fresh seasonal fare, and embrace what summer is all about, by keeping cool, calm, and carrying on.
One of our favorite cooling products is our Hyaluronic Tripeptide Gel-Cream for Eyes.
The dual-phase, swirled texture reminds us of soft serve on the boardwalk. The cooling gel phase soothes while the nourishing cream phase hydrates tired eyes, protects against blue light exposure, and helps with dark circles and puffiness while minimizing the look of lines.
Another soothing cooler perfect for summer is our Supergreens Soother™ Cooling Gel Mask, a cocktail of fresh-pressed supergreeens to detoxify and soothe your skin while cooling and refreshing. Like a gorgeous green juice for your skin.
Summer game, strong.
