Dermalogica Summer Skincare Essentials

Bees are buzzing, students are out of school, and the sun is shining, which means it’s time to break out this season’s Little White Dress and have some fun. Just don’t forget to wear your SPF!

As you stock your beach bag with a great book, sunglasses and hat, we have the expert tips you’ll need to keep skin healthy and smooth all summer long.

Exfoliate for a clear, smooth canvas

“Exfoliation helps remove possible precancerous cells before they become dangerous,” said Annet King, Director of Global Education for Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. Just one blistering sunburn can double your risk of melanoma.

For the face, try Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant. The rice-powder-based enzymatic exfoliant rids skin of dead cells and is gentle enough for daily use. Among dozens of editors and makeup artists, celebs Ashley Greene and Thandie Newton have also proclaimed their love for this product. It’s no wonder why it’s our top selling product all year round

Can I just tell you how amazing this stuff is? It's a product that you foam up in your hands, but pours out like a powder, something I've never experienced before. It exfoliates perfectly and leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. It can get a bit messy if you're not careful, so apply after you wash your face, once a day. It's not rough or drying on your skin, just pure perfection. One of the reasons I'm so in love with Dermalogica is their products can be used on ultra sensitive skin. This is my #1 MUST HAVE from Dermalogica, if you're going to purchase one thing from their site.

The price might drive you away at $50 for a 2.6 ounce, but if you're suffering from issues such as discoloration, blotchiness or rosacia, this might be what you've been waiting for. I would mostly recommend the Micro Exfoliant for people with redness or dry patches. Pick it up here on their site.

Need a quick-and-easy dose of SPF on-the-go? Try Solar Defense Wipes, pre-moistened towlettes that allow you to swipe on SPF 15 to the face or body as easy as 1-2-3.

If you’re planning a camping trip this summer, don’t forget to pack your Barrier Repair! This silicone based moisturizer melts flawlessly into skin, but also doubles as a soothing treatment for bug bites.

Calm over-exposed, irritated skin

After just a short time in the sunlight, skin can become red and inflamed, indicating a stripping of barrier lipids. To prevent further damage, apply a cooling balm, like After Sun Repair, at the first sign of over-exposure. And if you’re like the thousands of Americans who rely on waxing to keep their skin hair-free, the product also doubles as a soothing post-waxing treatment.

For a night out after a day at the beach, UltraCalming Redness Relief is a must for replenishing hydration, reducing redness, and protecting against further environmental assaults with SPF. The green tint goes on sheer, counteracting your skin’s redness caused by the sun, sand and heat
