Summer Skincare Switches

If you can’t tell by the rising temperature outside, summer is officially in full swing. We’re sweating it out in our Dallas headquarters, but wherever you are, there are probably some seasonal changes that need to be made to your skincare routine to keep up with the heat and increased sun exposure.

Trade your Sheer Renewal Cream for the Daily Defense SPF25
You should wear sunscreen every day of the year, but the nice warm weather probably means that you’re spending more time outside during the summer. So it’s especially important to protect your skin from the sun. In the morning, skip your normal daily dose of Sheer Renewal Cream (or whatever moisturizer you use in the mornings) and reach for the Daily Defense SPF25.

It’s a lightweight fluid that offers both UVA and UVB protection with a soft, matte finish. No embarrassing, pale white film here! It also contains a unique brightening complex that will enhance your complexion and promote radiance from within. Moisture, radiance, and SPF? We might consider making this trade year-round!

Trade your Extreme Recovery Cream for the Sheer Renewal Cream
You didn’t think I could just toss my beloved Sheer Renewal aside all summer, did you? During the summer with added sweat, heat, and salt water, I need a lightweight moisturizer in the evening.

Most months, I live for my Extreme Recovery Cream at night, but this season, I’m switching gears and reaching for my Sheer Renewal Cream. It’s got just enough hydration to keep me moisturized throughout the evening without adding a heavy layer. Think light, breathable, and oil-free for a perfect night’s sleep.

Trade your Age Renewal Super Serum for the Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum
As we age, we become more aware of how the sun is affecting our skin. If only I could tell my 20 year old self to put on a hat and put away the tanning oil! The Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum is just what we need to help turn back the clock on visible signs of sun damage.

Mandelic acid helps promote cellular turnover, which reveals brighter, more radiant skin. The Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum is great at reducing the appearance of sunspots and uneven skin tone due to over exposure to the sun. It also improves the skin’s texture and tone, which always seems to be an issue in the summer.
