As the days grow longer and temperatures rise, it's the perfect time to refresh your skincare routine and embrace the radiant summer glow. At The A'esthetic Skin Studio, we understand that transitioning into the summer months requires special attention to your skin’s needs. Here are some expert tips to ensure your skin stays healthy, hydrated, and protected all summer long.

1. Step Up Your Sun Protection

Sunscreen is important year-round; however, as it starts to get warmer and we spend more time outside enjoying the sun, it’s even more crucial. One of the most vital steps in your summer skincare routine is to increase your sun protection. Even on cloudy days, harmful UV rays can penetrate the skin, causing damage and accelerating the aging process. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. We recommend iS Clinical’s Eclipse SPF 50 or GlyMed Plus’ Hydrating Protection Gel SPF 30. Apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating. In addition to your SPF, opt for wearing a hat for extra protection!

2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Warmer weather and increased outdoor activities can lead to dehydrated skin. To keep your skin looking plump and fresh, incorporate a hydrating serum into your routine. Hydrinity’s Restorative HA Serum is an excellent choice, providing intense hydration and supporting your skin's natural barrier function. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated from the inside out.

3. Lighten Up Your Moisturizer

As temperatures rise, you might find that your heavy winter creams feel too occlusive. Transition to a lighter moisturizer that still provides ample hydration without feeling too heavy. We carry a range of lightweight, yet nourishing options that can be tailored to your specific skin type:

- Dry Skin: iS Clinical’s Reparative Moisture Emulsion or Skin Better’s Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment.

- Normal Skin: iS Clinical’s Moisturizing Complex or Skin Better’s Hydration Boosting Cream.

- Oily Skin: GlyMed Plus’ Oxygen Cream or Comfort Cream.

4. Incorporate Antioxidants

Summer is the perfect time to boost your skin’s defense against environmental damage with antioxidants. Products like iS Clinical’s Pro-Heal Serum Advance+ or Skin Better’s Alto Advanced Defense and Repair Serum contain powerful antioxidants that protect against free radicals and repair damage, helping to maintain a youthful and glowing complexion.

5. Exfoliate Wisely

Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and can enhance the absorption of your skincare products. However, it’s essential to exfoliate wisely to avoid over-exfoliating, which can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Opt for gentle exfoliants like iS Clinical’s Active Peel or GlyMed Plus’ Radiant Serum, and limit your exfoliation to 2-3 times per week.

6. Professional Treatments for a Summer Glow

At The A'esthetic Skin Studio, we offer a variety of professional treatments to help you achieve and maintain beautiful skin throughout the summer. Consider treatments like:

- Facials: Customized facials can deeply cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant.

- Chemical Peels: These can help improve skin texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Although traditional chemical peels require downtime and no sun exposure, we offer The BioRePeel, which is safe year-round (while still being diligent with SPF application)!

- JetPeel: A non-invasive treatment that uses jet technology to exfoliate the skin and infuse serums for deep hydration and rejuvenation.

7. Don’t Forget Your Lips

Lips are often neglected when it comes to sun protection. Use a lip balm with SPF to prevent sunburn and keep your lips hydrated!

8. Ah, The Great Outdoors

Sunburns are sometimes unavoidable, despite our best efforts. When they happen, it's important to treat them promptly to heal the skin and soothe any discomfort. We recommend iS Clinical's Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque and Youth Body Serum. Both are excellent post-sun-exposure products that contain aloe vera, known for its soothing properties to reduce inflammation and redness.

Summer also brings its fair share of bug bites, which can be incredibly itchy and inconvenient. But don't worry! You can heal and minimize the itchiness with Hale Derma Spray and GlyMed Plus' Comfort Cream. Hale Derma is antiseptic and helps cleanse the area, while Comfort Cream soothes the itch effectively.

Transitioning into summer doesn’t have to be challenging with the right skincare routine and professional treatments. At The A'esthetic Skin Studio, we are dedicated to helping you achieve your best skin yet. Visit us and let our experts guide you through the perfect summer skincare regimen.
