The Road to Healthy Summer Skin

The Road to Healthy Summer Skin

Cleanser and toners and sunscreens, oh my! Did Dorothy feel overwhelmed by all the skincare choices when she went shopping, too? There are lots of skincare products on the road to healthy skin, but it can be confusing to know which ones to pick. And we should keep in mind that the hot and humid summer weather causes many of us to sweat even more than usual, so our skincare must deal with our extra sweaty skin, too. 

Let’s talk about what you need to do to make your skin look its best. The essentials for skincare are: cleansing, hydrating and protecting your skin. Morning and night routines are similar, but sunscreen is a necessary part of the morning routine, while a skin repair treatment is an all-important part of the night routine. 

Let’s get into the details of your summer skincare, so you can have a routine that leaves your skin glowing.

Morning routine 

Cleanse - Every routine starts with cleansing the skin. During the night, dead skin cells, sebum and sweat can build up on the skin. Wash your face with  PURIFY ME to cleanse your skin. It contains hamamelis, which clears skin and calms redness, and shea butter, which moisturizes without clogging pores.


Balance skin’s pH - Normal skin has a pH of 4.7 and water has a pH of 7. The skin’s acidic pH inhibits the growth of bacteria and maintains the optimal environment in which skin’s natural flora can thrive. It is strange to think that water can disrupt your skin’s pH, but it can. If skin’s pH is disturbed, it can become dry and more susceptible to infections. After cleansing, mist your face with  REFRESH ME. It contains rose oil, which helps to balance the skin, and ylang-ylang extract, which helps balance the skin’s oil production. Toning skin also prepares it for serums, so they sink deeper and have a greater impact.    

If skin’s pH is disturbed, it can become dry and more susceptible to infections. After cleansing, mist your face with REFRESH ME to balance skin. 


Defend and brighten skin - As you lead an active lifestyle outdoors, especially in July and August, you are exposed to environmental pollution and UV rays continually. These factors cause free radicals to come in contact with your skin. Unfortunately, free radicals break down collagen and elastin, leading to premature wrinkles. Apply  C ME after toning your skin. The Vitamin C in  C ME is an antioxidant that prevents, protects and repairs damage caused by free radicals. In addition, it brightens skin and evens skin tone and texture.


Moisturize and protect skin - The summer is all about playing at the beach, swimming in the pool and enjoying outdoor fun. But, being outdoors leaves your skin exposed to harmful UV rays. As the final step in your morning routine, apply  PROTECT ME, a broad-spectrum SPF 30, to shield your skin from sun damage.  PROTECT ME is sweat-proof, so it will not drip off when you are sweating or sting your eyes. It sinks into skin quickly and will not leave a white film on your face. Additionally,  PROTECT ME contains tocopherol, which  improves your skin’s water-binding capacity and hydrates the skin.

Night routine

Remove makeup and environmental grime - After an active day, your skin is covered in makeup, dead skin cells, sweat and excess sebum. Use  CLEANSE ME, our foaming micellar water, to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin. It contains rose flower oil, which has antimicrobial properties, and hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates skin.


Deep clean - Use  PURIFY ME to get an even deeper clean and remove any leftover impurities in your pores. The natural jojoba beads in  PURIFY ME gently exfoliate your skin, while argan leaf extract and aloe vera soothe inflamed skin.


Tone skin - As we discussed before, normal skin has a pH of 4.7, but sweat has a pH of 6.3. Mathematically, the difference might not seem like much, but if you have been sweating all day in the summer heat, this difference can disrupt the “acid mantle,” a thin barrier on the surface of your skin that helps maintain its slight acidic state. Toner balances skin’s pH and gently refreshes the skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. After cleansing, mist your face with  REFRESH ME. The formula contains hyaluronic acid, which hydrates skin, and argan leaf extract and watermelon extract; both promote collagen production, making your skin look firmer and more youthful.


Nourish skin - Active days in the sun deplete skin of water, vitamins and minerals. It is essential that you nourish your skin after a long, active day, so it will maintain its healthy glow. After balancing your skin, apply  REVIVE ME. It contains Argania Active Complex, which deeply hydrates skin and reduces wrinkles, and sterols, which replenish lost minerals and vitamins.


Moisturize and enhance skin rejuvenation - Night is when skin goes into “repair” mode. Apply  RECOVER ME to help your skin repair itself as efficiently as possible.  RECOVER ME restores your skin barrier, fights skin damage and smooths wrinkles while you sleep. It contains niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, which hydrate skin, Copper Tripeptide-1, which improves skin’s firmness and reduces wrinkles, and Argania Active Complex, which both fights breakouts and signs of aging. 

RECOVER ME restores your skin barrier, fights skin damage and smooths wrinkles while you sleep.
