Top Summer Skin Care Tips

Skin Care routines change just as the seasons.

Summer not only brings sunshine and longer days but also a unique set of challenges for our skin. From sun damage to heat-induced oiliness, our skin battles these elements daily. At Skin CoLAB our Licensed Aestheticians will help guide you through the treatments and products that are a perfect match for the season.

Our #1 SCL Summer Skin Care Essential: SPF The importance of sun protection cannot be overstated, especially during summer. While sun exposure is critical for Vitamin D synthesis, excessive sun exposure can lead to harmful effects such as sunburn, premature aging, and, in the worst cases, skin cancer. Hence, your summer skin care routine must begin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen, preferably SPF 30 or higher. Not only should you apply it when you plan to spend time outdoors, but it should also be part of your daily routine, even on cloudy days as UV rays can penetrate clouds. Additionally, reapply every two hours when outdoors for prolonged periods. Don't forget those commonly missed spots: the back of your neck, ears, and tops of your feet.

#2 Summer Skincare Must Have: Hydration While summer might make your skin oilier, it doesn't mean you should skip moisturizing. Instead, switch to a lighter, water-based moisturizer that won't clog pores. It's vital to maintain your skin's hydration levels to keep it soft and supple, paving the way for that ideal summer glow. Another essential component of skin hydration is drinking plenty of water. Hydrating from the inside out flushes toxins from your body and helps maintain a healthy complexion. To boost hydration, consider incorporating water-rich fruits and vegetables into your diet, such as watermelon, cucumbers, and strawberries.

#3 Summer Skin Care Pro Tip: Regular Aesthetician Visits While at-home skin care is essential, regular aesthetician visits can be game-changing. These professionals possess extensive knowledge and tools to address specific skin concerns and help maintain your skin's optimal health. Deep cleansing facials can combat the oiliness and clogged pores prevalent in summer, while hydrating treatments restore moisture balance. Chemical peels can address sun-damaged skin, reducing hyperpigmentation and promoting an even skin tone. Skin CoLAB medical grade Hydrafacial treatments provide a smoother, brighter complexion. Regular treatments help to promote cell turnover and collagen production, critical for maintaining skin elasticity and achieving that radiant summer glow.

#4 Summer Skin Care Essential: Antioxidants Alongside SPF, antioxidants are your best defense against harmful environmental stressors. Ingredients like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, help to combat free radicals caused by sun exposure, reducing inflammation and preventing collagen breakdown. Our favorite antioxidant pick is Alto Advanced Defense & Repair. Shop our favorite products here.

Summer Skin Summary: While protecting your skin and getting regular treatments are vital steps towards achieving a perfect summer glow, remember that it's more than skin-deep. A balanced diet, regular exercise, adequate sleep, and stress management also contribute to your skin health. All these elements combined promote a healthy, radiant complexion that exudes a summer glow. Summer skincare is a balance between protecting against the season's unique challenges and nurturing your skin's health. Not sure what products are right for your summer skin? That is ok!
