Ah Summersurf. Sand. Sunscreen.

Skincare tips you can use right now

-Prevent skin damage
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. When it’s sunny. When it’s cloudy. In the morning and throughout the day. Sand, concrete, and water can reflect up to 85 percent of UV rays—meaning even if you’re wearing a hat or are sitting under an umbrella, you’re still exposed. You also need to apply it at least 30 minutes before going in the sun. This gives the sunscreen time to get into the skin and render the protection you need.

-Prevent acne breakouts
Look for sunscreen that’s oil free. Sheer doesn’t always mean it’s oil free. If you’re unsure of what sunscreen to use, be sure to call Noel at the Beauty Clinic and she can make some suggestions for you.

-“Oh no! I totally forgot and now have sun damage…” Fear not! If you already have age spots and dark patches, there’s good news.

Lytera 2.0 is effective, yet gentle enough to use during the summer months.

-Keep Fresh and Cool. Throughout the day we collect and spread bacteria all over our face, but even more so in the summer months when sweat traps that bacteria and we’re more prone to wiping it off with unwashed hands. Our Vitamin C Peptide Spray is an antioxidant mist that not only gives powerful antioxidant protection from free radical damage, it will keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.

-Don’t forget your hands! Often neglected, your hands can be a dead giveaway to your age. Be sure to use sunscreen on the backs of your hands.

-Use Self Tanner? Exfoliate the build-up first.
Self Tanners build up in your skin’s pores, and you need to exfoliate in order to remove it removes dead skin cells, debris and dirt. Not only will this give your self-tanner a blank canvas, but it will make your skin feel reenergized.
