Tips for Summer Skin Protection
Bright sunshine, blue skies, warm temperatures—summer is officially here! As you head outside to enjoy the pool, the beach, concerts and everything else summer has to offer, make sure you not only look good, but keep your skin looking good, too.
There’s nothing quite like building that beautiful summer glow, but summer can be hard on skin, especially our faces. Sweat, harsh sunscreens, sunburns and dehydration affect the quality of your skin, causing fine lines, sun damage and increase the signs of aging (yikes!).
Luckily Ella Bliss is here to help. We asked some of our expert estheticians which products from the Image Skincare line they recommend you use during the summer to protect your skin—along with regular Ella Bliss facials to keep skin looking and feeling its best, of course!
Clear Cell Salicylic Clarifying Tonic
Meccah from our Highland Ranch location swears by this tonic, especially for people with problem skin. “It’s super potent and you can see results with pimples and blackheads within a day of applying it. It also helps prevent blackheads and breakouts from coming back in those areas.” The tonic sweeps away dead skin cells and remove excess surface oil so skin stays shine-free—so important in the summer. Herbal extracts refresh and purify clogged pores and help calm irritated skin.
Iluma Intense Lightening Cleanser
For signs of sun damage, Kristina from our Denver beauty bar recommends the Iluma Intense Lightening Cleanser. This sulfate-free daily cleanser starts as a gel and then turns to a milky consistency, working actively to fade the appearance of discoloration, balance redness and produce a more even-toned complexion.
Vital C Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum
When combating summer dryness, Kimberly from Greenwood Village turns to the Vital C Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum. “It’s great if you are feeling really dry. Also, if you get a sunburn, it is healing and relieves some pain.” The serum is a veritable wake-up call for skin. Even better, it works for ALL skin types, softening the appearance of wrinkles, supporting collagen and protecting skin against damage.
