Exclusive Giveaway | Skin Care Products for a Fresh Summer Look

As the weather warms up and your exposure to the sun undoubtedly increases, consider stepping up your skin care regimen with increased diligence and a few new luxury skin care products. Wondering what the secret is to enjoying the joys of sunny weather without wrecking havoc on your precious skin? Read on!

According to Dr. Melanie D. Palm, Director of Art of Skin in Solana Beach, CA, “Great summer skin starts with three foundations: a strong sunscreen, a good anti-oxidant serum or cream for morning, and a rejuvenative product for evening. Summer skin usually only requires a light moisturizer, and be sure to select one with at least SPF 30.”

During the summer months it’s advisable to switch out your facial cleanser to one that’s clarifying and refreshing. Murad’s Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser instantly awakens skin, leaving it revitalized, radiant and smelling delicious. This foam cleanser is gentle, non-irritating and gets the job done—ridding sweaty summer skin of makeup and impurities in one fell swoop.

Once your skin is cleansed, pay special attention to anti-aging efforts. According to Cecilia Wong of Cecilia Wong Skincare, most aging occurs during the summer months, so stay hydrated and always tote sunglasses for added protection while outdoors. Smooth on an ultra-hydrating eye cream, like her own Firming Black Currant Eye Cream, to combat fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Bursting with natural ingredients like raspberry seed oil, (a natural SPF and antioxidant), black currant seed oil, and elderberry, the cream will hydrate and soothe the under-eye area while promoting circulation.

At night, give your skin an added boost of TLC with Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15. This miracle worker is scientifically proven to boost collagen products, smooth skin texture and dramatically brighten the skin—in as few as seven days. Apply in the evening following cleansing and before moisturizing for awe-inspiring results including firmer, tighter, more supple skin, reversed signs of aging and a glowing, radiant more even-toned complexion.

I love Sun Putty. My skin looks great since I've been using it for 8 weeks. It is great for daily skin care and SPF 30 sun protection. http://www.sunputty.com http://www.sunputty.com/sunputty_online_store/index.php

I use foundation and face lotion that contains some type of SPF. I also make sure if I'm going to be in the sun for a long time that I wear a hat.

You know I have a couple of summer skin care tips, number 1--stay hydrated. Drinks lots of water, not tea or soda but good old H2O. Number 2-depending on the occassion wear some type of hat or cap that will shade your face and number 3-this may sound strange, but always carry a small umbrella. When you pop it open, it provides some much needed shade from the very hot sun.

Vitamin E. I always use Vitamin E, whether it is Oil or just Vitamin E cream. It makes skin really soft. I can also mix sun screen with it.

I like the advice you gave about switching cleansers for the summer- I've never thought of that! I would love the opportunity to win the sunscreen. On June 30th, I was with my husband and 8 month old baby in the car when we were struck by a semi truck who ran a red light. I was the only one that was hurt, thankfully, but had to have lots of glass removed from my face and broke an ocular bone. The doctor that stitched me up said that my best bet for the scars to heal and not stay red is for me to continually stay covered in a high SPF sunscreen. I would love this opportunity to give this one a shot! Thank you.

I like to mix a dab of neosporin into lotion. It's prefect for healing dry or sunburnt skin.

to help keep hair color from fading in the summer from the pool, heat, and sun use a leave-in conditioner and or spray with UV protection to help boost color protection. and of course hats always help!
