Summer Skin Care Repertoire: 8 Products You Need

by Yasmine Djerradine

We suddenly find ourselves in the middle of summer. For many of us this means much time spent outdoors in the sun and heat. Whether we are running errands, sitting on the beach, barbecuing, hiking or just day dreaming, it is important to protect ourselves from the elements during the day, and then nourish our skin later in the evening. Here are some of my favorite products to keep you covered from head to toe all summer long.

Best Summer Skin Care Products For Face

Institut Esthederm Cellular Water: Great for a quick spray if you’re on the beach, out for a walk or simply enjoying the outdoors. Cellular Water rehydrates the skin and restores its vital energy.

Mio Skincare Clean Slate Workout Swipes & URSA Major Essential Face Wipes: Both of these are organic and great for men and women on the go. They not only rid the face (and the rest of the body) of grime, but also tone the skin; whether you are traveling, après gym or getting off the subway particularly schvitzy.

Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23: An anti-aging, light daily moisturizer with all the sun protection you need rolled up in one product. It is perfect for summer and is dermatologically formulated and tested, making it well suited for all skin types.

Institut Esthederm Time Technology Cream: A light, revitalizing moisturizer, perfect for traveling. It contains algae extract that detoxifies and promotes microcirculation. This fresh cream contains a subtle, shimmery glow, so even with the faintest hint of a tan you won’t need to wear much makeup. It is perfect for going out on a summer evening.

Cosmetics 27 Baume 27: Great as an après sun moisturizer. It is cooling and calming, especially after a day outdoors or in the sun. This balm is particularly well suited as a restorative and reparative nighttime face cream. It quite literally slows down the oxidation or aging process as it protects against free radicals, one of the main causes of aging. Don’t forget to massage into your décolleté as well.

Best Summer Skin Care Products For Eyes

B. Kamins Laboratories Eye Cream: Formulated with Epishere — BlueTM Technology, which consists of heat activated tiny blue capsules of anti-oxidant — this lightweight under eye cream is perfect for use day and night during the summer months. Great under makeup or on its own.

Best Summer Skin Care Products For Body


Remember that the body is just as much in need of care as the face. When you return from a day in the sun, the body requires moisture and rehydration.

Institut Esthederm Sun Care Oil SPF 25: Don’t be fooled by the SPF 25 label, this is akin to an SPF of 30. It is not only high-tech sun care that stimulates your skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun but can also be used year-round as a hydrating body oil. It is the best sun care protection on the market and smells divine. Can also be used an SPF hair oil.

Mio Skincare Get Waisted Sculpted Body Shaper: The combination of caffeine, aloe leaf juice, oat protein and other active ingredients help tighten, smooth, de-bloat and discourage fat deposits by increasing lipolysis, the breakdown of fat. Combine this with regular exercise and healthy eating and you will see results!
