With the weather heating up, it’s time to take stock of your current skincare routine and adjust accordingly. Warm weather means time to up the SPF and cut back on the heavy creams. There’s a lot of information and misinformation out there, so we’re saving you the research: Here are our top 6 skin-expert approved picks to keep you protected and glowing throughout the season.
ZO Skin Health Smart Tone SPF 50
Straight from one of our licensed estheticians, Dana Broslovsky, the first product you need to incorporate this summer is sunscreen. Did you know 90% of skin damage is caused by harmful sun rays?
Protecting your skin against the UVA/B is imperative for healthy and happy skin. With a high SPF and ingredients that allow for a lightweight finish, ZO’s Skin Health Smart Tone SPF 50 is the perfect choice for your summer routine.
Skin Better Sunbetter SPF 68 Sunscreen Compact
If you’re looking for an SPF with benefits, our RN Alyssa D’Arcy recommends this chic compact that works as a primer while also protecting the skin. The innovative design and formula provides high sun protection in a tone-adapting, silky smooth compact that also adds a hint of color. This makes it perfect for layering and reapplying on the go.
Reminder: SPF reapplication is necessary every four hours for the best protection.
SkinMedica TNS Advanced Serum
When it comes to serums, their effectiveness varies. Our practice manager, Denise Stirling, has a favorite though: SkinMedica’s TNS A+ serum in an anti-aging powerhouse packed with antioxidants and peptides for a result that smoothes fine lines and tightens the skin. From the peptides to the growth factors, this serum will boost your collagen and elastin production in 12 weeks. As Denise says, “[This serum will give you an] aging in reverse kind of look.”
ZO Retinol Skin Brightener
There’s nothing quite like a refreshed face. Take a page from licensed esthetician, Brooke Legon’s book and add a daily dose of vitamin A to your skincare routine. This skin brightening formula works to rapidly brighten and even skin tone, combatting the appearance of new age spots and uneven color. “Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation doesn’t stop just because it’s summer,” Brooke explains.
ZO Brightalive Reimagined
If retinol is too much for your skin to handle, licensed esthetician, Alyssa Breault, recommends ZO’s Brightalive formula to increase luminosity, visibly improve skin clarity, and fade the appearance of dark spots.
The lack of retinol means you can utilize this formula during the daytime, making it a perfect choice to layer during the hot summer months.
ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish
Nurse injector Lindsey Nally knows there’s nothing quite like a post-sun shower. Make sure you’re making the most of your golden hour cleanse by properly exfoliating to help lift the sunscreen and sand from a full day in the sun. Lindsey loves ZO’s exfoliating polish: It works to remove dead skin cells, prevent clogged pores, and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. No makeup necessary.
