Summer is sadly coming to a close. Although one of our favorite seasons, summer poses a number of challenges for your skin (and overall health) that are often overlooked. If you’ve had a summer filled with sunshine, drinks, and swimming– and your skin shows it– then keep reading for our best tips to revitalize dry, blotchy skin.

It goes without saying that you need to apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays. In addition to accelerating the aging process and dehydrating your skin, the sun also increases your risk of developing skin cancer. A powerful sunscreen is a must during the summer season– and year round. We highly recommend our Triple Duty Plus Sunscreen SPF 35+. It’s a 100% all-physical mineral formulation with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Additionally, it offers vitamin C, vitamin E, thioctic acid and a sheer tint for even-toned, glowing skin.

To repair sun-damaged skin after a long, hot summer, use a serum that includes collagen-promoting ingredients. Our CE Serum includes vitamins E & C to improve the signs of aging and photodamage, along with ferulic acid for enhanced antioxidant benefits. Be sure to use CE Serum in the morning and evening.

The sun dehydrates your skin so be sure to use a powerful moisturizer to replenish the skin and restore hydration. Omega 3 Nourishing Facial Crème is an ideal moisturizer. This plant-based crème combines powerful omega-3 ingredients with lipids, shea butter, and antioxidants to nourish and help heal the skin.

Our final recommendation is to use a treatment that increases cell turnover to repair your end-of-summer skin. For this, we suggest Perfect Glycolic Treatment 15% each evening, because the best time to repair your skin is while you sleep. This treatment blends glycolic acid, aloe vera, bisabolol and a special blend of algae and mugwort extracts to soothe irritated skin and gently exfoliate. It’s the perfect product to use if you’re ready to start correcting summer damaged skin!
