I spend most of the summer outdoors (I'm writing this sitting on the cottage porch) so I asked the experts at Aesthetic Specialty Centre to recommend the smartest products for my summer beach bag. I'm loving them all!
1. Colorescience brush-on SPF, powered by EnviroScreen™ Technology, this all-powerful, all-mineral skin shield provides total protection in one convenient, on-the-go application—alone or over makeup. UVB protection rating: SPF 50, water-resistant (80 minutes)
2. Colorescience Lip Gloss – Because beach doesn't mean blah.
3. Skin Medica – TNS Eye Repair – TNS Eye Repair® not only includes TNS® to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and texture, but it also contains peptides in addition to vitamins A, C and E to help support the skin around the eyes. My 26-year-old daughter has extra sensitive skin around her eyes and found this oh-so-soothing.
4. Skin Medica – Total Defense & Repair Tinted SPF – Total Defense + Repair is more than a sunscreen; it’s a rejuvenating superscreen, powered by SOL-IR™Advanced Antioxidant Complex. Traditional broad-spectrum sunscreens only protect against UVA and UVB. Goes on smooth and provides a polished face all day long.
5. Skin Medica – AHA/BHA Cleanser – This elegantly formulated exfoliating cleanser gently scrubs away dead skin, improving the appearance of skin tone and texture. Smells so nice, too.
6. Skin Medica – Lytera – Formulated to address even the most stubborn discoloration, regardless of skin type or genetic makeup. Improvements seen in as early as two weeks with progressively dramatic results at 12 weeks and beyond. While I can't totally erase my years in the sun, this helps!
7. Skin Medica – Retinol - .05 – Enhances skin tone, texture, resiliency. Diminishes appearance of fine lines, coarse wrinkles. Enhances skin tone, texture. Icing on the cake.
