Simple Summer Skincare Tips

by Suzanne M. Harvey


Summer is in full swing, and our routines have gone out of the window. But isn’t that what summer is all about? But we still want to take care of our skin. And with the extra time we are spending in the sun, we need to show our skin extra love. You will see the effort pay off now and, in the future, when you are loving your skin, and you don’t hit the fall with extra wrinkles and damage from the sun. Wondering what you can do to take care of your skin this summer? Use these simple summer skincare tips and products for your best summer skin.

Tip #1 – Sunscreen Every Day

Sun protection is a must. The sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause you to look older than you are. Nobody wants that! Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily – even on cloudy days. Want to save time & money? Choose a moisturizer with SPF to combine steps. Try Redefine Triple Defense Lotion for a lightweight option for daily moisture.

Tip #2 – Hydration


One of the best things you can do for your skin all year long is drink plenty of water. Getting plenty of water throughout the day will keep your skin hydrated from within. Hydrated skin has a beautiful natural glow and hydrated skin acts and looks younger! Hello gorgeous.

Tip #3 – Simplify Cleansing

Opt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser for the summer. Look for one that removes dirt and sweat without stripping your skin’s natural oils. Consider Recharge 3-in-1 Super Cleanser for gentle cleansing that removes make-up, dirt, oil and sweat.

Tip #4 – Moisturize Regularly

Your skin needs to be moisturized each day. For the summer months, look for a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer that suits your skin type. Looking for a moisturizer specifically for your skin concern? Check out my top favorites here

Tip #5 – Eye Care

The delicate skin around your eyes needs extra care this summer. Add an eye cream to target puffiness and dark circles (Bright Eye Complex – Bonus tips – Keep it in the fridge for a cool, refreshing feeling.

Tip # 6 – Exfoliate Weekly

To help those younger, fresher skin cells come to the surface, incorporate a gentle exfoliation once a week. This will help to remove dead skin cells and keep your complexion bright and glowing. Use a gentle exfoliator like Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.

Tip #7 – Use Multitasking Products

Summer is the perfect time to layer in a multitasker to boost the benefits of all your other products. Look for products that offer multiple benefits like the anti-aging powerhouse serum Total RF Serum, targeting all the major signs of aging like fine lines and uneven tone, or a tinted moisturizer with SPF for the perfect finish to your daytime look (hello, Radiant Defense).

Tip #8 – Protect Your Lips


Sometimes it’s easy to forget that our lips are skin too and they are in need of care too. Your lips need moisture and SPF sun protection. Use a lip product that protects with SPF to prevent sunburn and keep your lips moisturized. Bonus if it is tinted! Create the perfect finished look that protects, plumps and moisturizes with RF Plumping Lip Oil.

Tip #9 – Your Nighttime Routine.

Maybe you’re like me and your nighttime routine needs an update (or you need to start one today). Now’s the time to set a simple nighttime skincare routine with a gentle cleanser and a richer moisturizer to help repair and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep. 

As you enjoy the longer days and warm sunshine, don’t forget to take care of your skin. Then in the fall you will love what you see in the mirror.
