9 Products To Balance And Repair Dry Summer Skin
Unprotected sun exposure is one of the biggest problems the skin faces. Skin can develop unwanted dark spots, dehydration and sagginess after exposure. Here are the best products that will improve the skin’s look of elasticity and hydration.
1. Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30
Sun exposure plays one of the biggest roles in aging our complexions. It’s also responsible for increasing our risk of skin cancer. UV rays penetrate deep into the skin’s layers, exposing otherwise healthy skin to damaging free radicals. To decrease these risks, you should recommend a sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher. The Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30 defends the skin from UV rays and is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes, so sweating and swimming is not a problem!
2. Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque
Research shows that Vitamins C and E are important for sun exposure recovery. Both Vitamins C and E visibly diminish the look of wrinkles, fine lines and an uneven skin texture associated with time in the sun. The Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque is rich in these vitamins and antioxidants to help improve the appearance of skin elasticity, while citrus fruit oils tone and refresh the skin.
3. Coconut Milk Cleanser
Created to comfort dryness, the Coconut Milk Cleanser is the perfect choice for a Client’s next tropical vacation. It is formulated for dry or irritated skin and has a cream base that deeply nourishes and moisturizes skin dehydrated by the sun, all while washing away makeup and other impurities. Look forward to a very gentle cleanse thanks to a formulation consisting of calendula oil, coconut oil and coconut milk.
4. Stone Crop Hydrating Mist
Just use a spritz of the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist to tone after cleansing, or soothe and freshen the face after a day in the heat. This multi-tasking skin saver is made of stone crop juice, spring water and salicylic acid. You’ll find this formula a refreshing skin care essential that will leave skin looking vibrant and feeling cool.

5. Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum
The potent Vitamin C in the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum is boosted by botanically-derived ferulic acid. Skin will feel brighter and more plumped while the avocado moisturizes and hydrates the skin. Citrus fruit oils (from lemon and grapefruit) tone and refresh the skin while Vitamin C helps to protect skin against visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Leafy greens (kale, spinach and broccoli sprouts) are rich in antioxidants that help improve the appearance of skin elasticity and hydration.
This serum even grabbed the attention of actress Katherine Heigl: “This is another multi tasking product that helps plump … I put a few drops in my palm and apply it to my face while it’s still damp from toner.”
6. Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil
The Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil delivers an added boost of Vitamins C and E to help the skin appear firmer with more elasticity. Suitable for all skin types, this non-irritating, non-greasy facial oil nourishes the skin with rosehip oil, seabuckthorn oil, rosemary leaf extract and milk thistle.
