Believe it or not, summer is right around the corner which means it’s time to prep your skin for the warmer weather (AKA shorts season!). Whether your summer plans include trips to the beach, long hikes in the foothills or sticking to air-conditioned locales only, follow these tips to help prep your skin to look its best this summer:
Prep: Using an exfoliant such as Therapeutics Body Exfoliant will help smooth and polish your skin with powerful Bamboo Stem Extract. By lifting away dead skin cells you are cleaning the follicle and helping prevent rough, bumpy skin. It’s a great product to use before shaving to prevent razor burn, especially when followed with Therapeutic Body Cream.
Condition: Keep your skin hydrated with Cyto-luxe Body Lotion. Not only will this moisturizer hydrate your skin with powerful active ingredients, but it will help promote collagen production and help reduce the appearance of body wrinkles. It’s the perfect way to help soften and tone your skin for summer.
Protect: Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is crucial all year round but absolutely essential in summer months. When spending time directly in the sun, always wear a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection. Applying a liberal amount of Oil Free SPF 40+ before sun exposure will help keep your skin protected. Plus, nourishing hydrators and antioxidants help fortify and moisturize your skin as an added bonus!
