It’s time for some Fourth of July celebrations, and yes, summer is officially here! So let’s talk about some summer skincare must-haves!
With the warm temperatures and bright sunshine around us, we can feel the vibes of summer finally hitting their stride! With rest, relaxation, fun, and sun just around the bend, don’t forget to practice good skincare and safe sun habits. Your summer skincare regimen doesn’t have to be complicated; it just has to be effective. And make sure your whole family is taking part as well. Whether you are heading out of town or staying local for your summer jaunts, get prepared and don’t forget to have your warm-weather skincare necessities at your fingertips.
A few of our favorite on-the-go skincare products are perfect for travel and easy to throw in your weekend bag! Here are a few of our favorites.
- Let’s start with sunscreen! We love Avene® Lite Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+, where its mineral formula and lasting moisturizing benefits make it Dr. Honet’s favorite for the face and body. We also just started carrying the Avene® Ultra Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion Spray SPF 50+, perfect for protecting your loved ones before heading outdoors. Another new Avene favorite is the Avene® Hydrating Sunscreen Balm SPF 50+. Not only is it conveniently packaged in a balm stick, its ideal formulation is also perfect to glide on your face before applying your summer makeup. The balm stick is great for the car or to stash in your purse for sun protection in a hurry or for a quick touchup. Also, remember to protect your lips, because this balm is perfect for them, too!
- Have you tried our new Arcona® Triad Pads yet? These pads are already an HDC staff favorite and are ideal for every skin type after cleansing for quick refreshing hydration before layering your other skincare products. They also smell heavenly! Remember, the Arcona line of skincare products are based in natural, enzymatic-based ingredients, antioxidants, plant lipids and extracts, marine plant extracts, essential oils, vitamins, and minerals. It is also a line that has been consistently focused on not including petrochemicals, binders, fillers, chemical stabilizers, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, perfumes, or dyes. Other amazing Arcona® Treatment Pads include the Tabula Rasa Pads if you are prone to break outs and the Solution Pads if your skin is more mature and needs an anti-aging boost. We love how these make our skin look and feel, but these Arcona Treatment Pads are also super convenient and pack easily for travel as well.
- A new addition to our retail offerings is the OC8® Professional Mattifying Gel, which is a must-try this summer to control that annoying shine and oil some of us get! This mattifying gel controls your shine for 8 hours and is especially effective for those of us prone to breakouts and active oil glands, especially when the summer heat doesn’t help. Use it under your moisturizer or as a primer before your makeup and keep the shine away.
- Another must-have for your beach bag is Restorsea™ PRO Lip Magic. This amazing lip treatment naturally exfoliates the dead skin layers on your lips through the power of salmon roe enzyme, revealing the plump, healthier layers, while providing hydration and subtle shine. Let Restorsea™ Lip Magic get your lips picture perfect for that summer selfie!
Come by the office and let us guide and help you with your summer skincare needs. You still have time to stock up for you and your family before heading out on your summer getaway!
We wish you a very happy July 4th! And of course, please don’t forget the sunscreen. Apply, reapply often, and reapply again. Have fun and stay safe in the sun.
Happy, Healthy Skin!
–Senada and Dr. H
