Summer is in full swing and so is the blazing sun that we all love so much! Boat rides and barbecues demand we protect our skin – here’s our foolproof way to maintain your radiant youthful complexion while enjoying all that the summer has to offer whether at home or in the office!
Prevent icky summer breakouts by following these easy steps:
Step 1: Cleanse your skin! Reboot with Revision Brightening Wash (http://www.revisionskincare.com) which helps exfoliate dead skin cells, brightens the skin with Vitamin C and has antioxidant benefits that will get your skin glowing!
Step 2: Mask Time! Sit back and Relax with May Lindstrom’s (maylindstrom.com) amazing Problem Solver Correcting Masque! Antioxidant rich in raw cacao and healing bamboo charcoal, your tired skin cells will get back to circulating! This mask helps detoxify and open up your pores – it also smells delicious enough to eat!
Step 3: Protection! Now that we’ve cleansed and purified we have to protect ourselves from the sun’s glares! A non-comedogenic sunscreen like Revision Intellishade (SPF 45) (www.revisionskincare.com) shields and moisturizes your skin while also giving coverage – this revitalizing sunscreen comes tinted with a mineral base that helps blend and minimize pores!
Depending on your skin needs there are a variety of solutions to keep your skin safe. Our favorite summer time services are below!
Cleaning the skin is of utmost importance! Extractions and steaming help unclog your pores and allow your skin to breathe! Combined with a salicylic peel (which helps slough off all dead skin, leaving behind a smooth beautiful complexion) your skin is ready for the next step! MAX 7 LED Light (link to my site) therapy helps your skin to purify, reduces any redness left behind and relaxes you as pores and sun damage begin to minimize.
You must remember to take care of yourself both inside and out! Negative dietary habits can have an unpleasant reaction with your skin. Keeping an eye on intake of alcohol along with dairy, wheat and sugar is incredibly important! Both dairy and sugar cause spikes in certain pimple producing hormones. Awaken your diet with antioxidant rich greens like spinach and kale while replenishing with water and green tea!
Enjoy summer & take back your health!

But how do you get that radiant glow?
As time ticks by and we age, the process of cell regeneration starts to slow down. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of your skin, it can leave skin looking rough, dull and dry. To restore that youthful glow you must exfoliate!
Exfoliation removes the layer of dead skin cells that have built up over time and allows fresh new cells to breathe. It’s an easy addition to your beauty routine that can turn your skin into a work of art!
Exfoliation helps prevent acne, it helps remove hyperpigmentation and old acne scars, it helps with product penetration and it also treats dull skin, leaving you glowing and dewy. When done monthly, it rids you of toxins and begins to restore the normal cell turnover rate which keeps your skin fresh and plump!
The Silkpeel treatment silmultaneously infuses serums into your skin as it sloughs off old dead skin cells. These infused serums detoxify and hydrate the fresh young cells below. Dermaplanning exfoliates the epidermis along with any bothersome peach fuzz, leaving behind skin as soft as a baby’s bottom.
In conjunction to these monthly spa treatments, you can also safely exfoliate while at home two to three times a week! A scrub we are currently loving is May Lindstrom’s Clean Dirt. An energizing blend of cleansing clays (like Moroccan rhassoul, cinnamon & turmeric), lifts impurities while a surge of Vitamin C encourages cellular rejuvenation and increased blood flow. If you’ve been looking for the answer to healthy and radiant skin, exfoliation is the answer. Taking good care of your skin is your right – put your best face forward and get that summer glow without the sun!
