Summer Time Skin Care Essentials at The Parkside Spa
As the temperatures rise, it's crucial to adapt your skincare routines to keep your complexion healthy and radiant—and more importantly, protect from sun damage. We recommend taking a holistic approach to your skin this summer, with a focus on high-quality ingredients, sun-protecting products and hydrating treatments. Let’s walk through three simple ways to care for your skin this summer!
Choose Ingredients Wisely
Vitamin C is an important part of your diet, but beyond that, this powerhouse ingredient can do a lot to enhance your complexion. Wondering how vitamin C helps your skin?
When applied topically, Vitamin C can support your skin’s natural collagen production, brighten your complexion by reducing redness from environmental stress, even skin tone by targeting dark spots, neutralize free radicals, and prevent premature aging while visibly smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. And, when used as a base under sunscreen, it helps boost sun protection. Needless to say, vitamin C is one of the best ingredients to incorporate into your summertime skincare routine.
Protect your skin with the right products
When you think of summer skin care products, sunscreen is likely the first thing to come to mind—and rightfully so! SPF is a MUST in the summer months (and is recommended to use daily, year-round). Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from! Our team at The Parkside Spa is happy to walk you through our skincare selection and help you choose the ideal sunscreen for your skin type.
And you know we love vitamin C this time of year! Boost your summertime skin care routine with a vitamin C serum. We recommend Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum—a perfect pairing with their Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer with SPF 40.
Aside from protecting your skin from the sun, hydration is key to any skincare routine. Look for ultra-hydrating, nourishing ingredients like the Eminence Organics Marine Flower collection. Consider adding a refreshing toner into your routine to add additional hydration and prep your skin for suncare products—we love the Lime Refresh Tonique from Eminence!
