3 Summer Skin Prep Tricks We’re Loving

Let’s be honest: Winter can be harsh, especially on our skin. And a new season is a new reason to level up your skincare game and grab that healthy summer glow. Not sure where or how to start your seasonal transition? Our Lead Clinical Aesthetician Aaron has three great tips to get you started on the road to your best summer skin ever:

 

1. Integrate an SPF of 45+ into your daily routine: “If you haven’t been using sunscreen all winter long (tsk, tsk!) it’s time to get back into the habit. I always recommend an SPF 45 for maximum coverage against the sun’s harmful rays. Apply it as the last step of your morning routine, 30 minutes before sun exposure and reapply after 2 hours — especially after heavy sweating or swimming. And please don’t rely on the SPF in your makeup — it’s not enough, my dears.”

 

2. Speaking of your routine, it’s time for a refresh: “As the seasons change, so should your skincare routine and products. For the summer months, reach for a lighter moisturizer, ditch the rich creams and lotions for face and body, and add a Vitamin C antioxidant like SkinBetter Science Alto Advanced Defense and Repair Serum. I also suggest lightly exfoliating your skin 1-2 times per week to remove dead skin cells and address hyperpigmentation.”

 

Pro tip: “Want to add some color and still protect your skin from the sun? The A360 staff — and SO many of our clients — love a tinted moisturizer like Revision Skincare Intellishade, which has an SPF 45 and will give you that perfect amount of sheer color for summer.”

 

3. And don’t skip your skin treatments: “Skin treatments are vital to transitioning your skin to a new season. Going from the harsh elements of winter to the warmth of summer, you need to properly prepare and repair your skin with treatments like The Saltfacial, our new 360° Signature Treatment, or microneedling to address texture and tone. But definitely consult with Suzy or me regarding the best treatments to prevent, maintain, repair and/or enhance your skin all year long.”
