Our skin requires the best protection in extreme weather. Summer heat and humidity can wreak havoc on it. Here are our editor´s skin-care picks that cover a variety of ages and needs.
SebaMed Liquid Face & Body Wash and Firming body lotion
Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash is dermatologist developed, ultra-mild, and recommended for sensitive skins. It gently deep-cleans pores without causing dryness or irritation as regular soap can. The Q10 Firming Body Lotion is enriched with shea butter, argan oil and barley grain wax to help firm up aging skin. As we age, our cell reproduction slows down giving way to looser skin.
Avalon Organics Wrinkle Therapy line
This cleansing oil loosens makeup and grime, then rinses away for soft, clean and conditioned skin. The moisturizing day cream locks in natural hydration and nutrients so skin feels smooth and healthy. Wrinkle Therapy pairs CoQ10, a natural fuel for cellular energy, and rosehip oil, rich in skin-replenishing lipids, vitamins and antioxidants, to counteract signs of aging.
Crepe Erase Intensive Body Repair Treatment
Crepe Erase is developed to help restore your skin’s youthful bounce, and provides all-day moisture for smooth skin. When paired with the Exfoliating Body Polish, it improves the look of crepey, sagging-looking skin. We especially liked the cream over the exfoliant.
Dermalogica Age Smart line
The Overnight Retinol Repair is an active 1% microencapsulated pure Retinol formula that helps accelerate skin renewal. A powerful bioactive peptide and antioxidant Vitamin C help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone and discoloration. Soothing Licorice Extract and customizable Buffer Cream reduce the risk of flaking or irritation as skin acclimates to Retinol. Formulated without artificial fragrances or colors.
Jurlique Nutri Define line
We absolutely love this anti-aging skincare line. Featuring Biosome5 technology Nutri-Define targets all the advanced signs of aging – including deep lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone. The entire line is gentle on the skin and the scent reminds of aromatherapy. We also love the people behind the brand: Dr Jürgen Klein, a biochemist, and his wife Ulrike, a botanist, who are passionate believers in the healing power of nature. They wanted to create a pure and natural skin care range combining the ancient arts of alchemy, herbal medicine and homeopathy to reconnect people to nature.
Marula Facial Renewal Essence
Facial Renewal Essence is a daily-use, anti-aging treatment, helping improve skin complexion within 60 days for a fresher, younger-looking appearance by enhancing skin’s natural cell renewal process. The scent of rosemary oil and orange peel oil is invigorating and pleasant. It is light enough to use in the summer but can be applied year-round.
Mary Kay Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask and Satin Hands Exfoliant
The charcoal mask unclogs pores, while rosemary and peppermint extracts stimulate the senses. Younger and oily skins will enjoy the application and benefits. The Satin Hands exfoliant is made with white tea and citrus, plus shea butter. Use it daily for really smooth, freshly scented hands.
ProactivMD line for acne
We have teens, and we also know that acne doesn’t always stop at the teen years! The easy-to-use ProactivMD system benefits from a benzoyl-peroxide free regimen which includes cleansing, toning, hydration, sun protection and the acne-fighting power of Adapalene, a prescription-strength retinoid that treats and prevents acne at the cellular level.
