To have great summer skin, we need to switch our skin care products from what we use in the winter months. For summertime, I recommend Aveda's Enbrightenment Skin Care
line. It has many different moisturizers for every skin type - dry or oily. It also has a correcting serum
that everyone should be using! The Enbrightenment line targets discoloration from sun damage that is perfect during the summer.
Along with the Enbrightenment products, I would use a facial sunscreen of at least SPF15-30. Aveda offers a fantastic tinted moisturizer
with SPF 15 that is friendly to the skin. Many of us will apply sunscreen once in the morning, but to be truly effective at blocking out damaging rays, sunscreen should be reapplied every 1-2 hours. To help with any issues that may arise from applying sunscreen to skin, I recommend a facial or two during these months.
Another secret to looking great in the bright summer sun is to keep up on your waxing! Humid air encourages the growth of facial hair (which we have plenty of here) so waxing appointments become even more essential. A HUGE factor in maintaining soft, supple summer skin is to eat seasonally! This is true year round, but especially in the summer. Opt for locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables. And if you choose to do only one of these things, the MOST IMPORTANT tip I can give anyone is to drink water, water, and lots of water!! Hydration is a key component in maintaining clear, beautiful skin from your face to your feet.
