Summer is a time for fun and spending more time outdoors! It’s also a great time to focus on overall skin health and restoration. Longer hours of sunlight and hot, dry, or humid weather can affect our skin differently than the colder, darker days of other seasons.
It is essential to protect your skin daily with high performance sunscreens to prevent today’s exposure from becoming tomorrow’s discolorations, fine lines, uneven tones, even skin cancers. But it’s also very important to repair the damage done in the days and years before.

Step One: Protect
Elta MD Pure SPF: This “old faithful” SPF is a dermatologist’s favorite. It is a PURE mineral sunscreen, non-irritating, and 80-minutes water resistant. Elta Pure is great for all ages and particularly good for sports, swimming, and beach time! We have almost never seen anyone get irritated or have a reaction to Elta Pure SPF!
Isdin Eryfotona Actinica: ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica SPF50 is also a Pure Dermatology favorite! This SPF contains DNA repair enzymes which means it not only protects, but reverses sun damage! It is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and is 40-minutes water resistant. Great for every day and for summer activities!Heliocare Ultra: Heliocare is a potent anti-oxidant which can clean up and prevent damage caused by sunlight. This over-the-counter supplement is derived from a tropical fern and has been used for over 25 years in dermatology. Heliocare helps reduce your chance of a sunburn when used in conjunction with a good SPF. Take one daily before hitting the beach, tennis courts, mountain, or any outdoor sporting event!
Step Two: Stay Comfortable
Avene Thermal Water spray – This unique French thermal water contains optimal mineral content which repairs the skin barrier and calms, soothes, softens and comforts skin. Throw this in your backpack or beach cooler for a cool, refreshing spritz when the sun is getting to you! It will naturally restore moisture and keep you comfortable!
Step Three: Protect
NEOVA SmartSkincare Body Repair Lotion – Studies have shown that sunlight can cause DNA damage for up to 6 hours after sun exposure. This is where Neova Body Repair Lotion comes in! This state of the art lotion contains DNA repair enzymes which actually reverse the mutations caused by sunlight that lead to pigment, loss of collagen, aging, and skin cancer. Use this lotion daily all year, but maybe apply an extra application or two after a beach or hiking day!
Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Mask: This intensely calming mask cools on contact, comforts skin sensitivity, and restores radiance. We love it: post work out, sun exposure, hot bath, post travel, post chlorine/salt water from swimming, and after wind exposoure. Keep it in your fridge for an extra cooling effect! You can rinse it off after 15 minutes, or leave it on!
Avene Ciclafate: Ever had a bug bite, blister, abrasion or some other sort of minor injury on vacation? Well, this is your one-stop-shop. This rich, protect cream contains post-biotic balanced thermal water and anti-inflammatory zinc and has been clinically proven to heal minor injuries 4x faster. Use it several times a day on any area of broken, irritated skin.
