Spring is over and the heat of the summer months are here. With so much going on during this time of the year, it’s totally understandable that a few things slip your mind. Below, we share five skin care tips (along with product recommendations, such as our best moisturizers for every skin type), to help you achieve glowing skin for the activities you have planned this season.
SKIN CARE TIP #1: ASSESS YOUR SKIN SITUATION
Take inventory of your complexion so that you can start a tailored skin care routine. Whether you have dark circles, large pores, or something else you’d like to address, look for skin care products that can help minimize the appearance of these imperfections.
SKIN CARE TIP #2: ADD A PEEL PAD TO YOUR NIGHTLY BEAUTY ROUTINE
Don’t let dull skin get you down! Use a peel pad to help resurface dull, uneven skin tone and rough texture. Plus, multi-ply textured pads physically exfoliate dead skin cells. Immediately, skin will look brighter, clarified, and more radiant, while skin tone will look more even with continued use over time. Smooth a pad gently over cleansed skin—just make sure to apply a moisturizer with SPF 30 or so. Take other sun protection measures including limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially between the peak hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.), seeking shade, and throwing on a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
SKIN CARE TIP #3: PERK UP YOUR EYES
The last thing you want is for your eye area to look drab right? So, add an eye cream to your daily skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Eye Treatment is a luxurious, lightweight cream formulated with hyaluronic acid, caffeine, and Pro-Xylane™ to help reduce the look of under-eye bags, wrinkles, and puffiness. Plus, the cooling applicator feels so good! Massage the eye cream gently around your eye area until fully absorbed, morning and night.
SKIN CARE TIP #4: EXFOLIATE FROM HEAD TO TOE
Exfoliation is the process of sloughing dead skin cells off the surface of your skin and it’s a great idea to incorporate this into your regular skin care routine since this buildup can lead to dullness. Reach for a face scrub, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, which gently exfoliates for glowing, baby-soft skin. And don’t forget to use it on your lips, too. For the skin below your jawline, gently massage a body scrub in circular motions over your body, paying particular attention to areas that tend to be on the dry side, like your knees, elbows, and feet.
SKIN CARE TIP #5: MOISTURIZE MORNING AND NIGHT
Your skin care routine isn’t complete without moisturizer. Apply your face lotion of choice to damp skin to help lock in hydration. Choose one that suits your skin type. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/ Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. If you’re looking to squeeze in a little anti-aging action before you’re wed, try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro Retinol & Centella Asiaticainstead. This lightweight cream helps hydrate, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, firm skin, and resist other visible signs of aging. ◆
