Summer Skincare: Sunscreens & Post-Sun Products

Avoiding sun damage is the key to maintaining skin health.

Just a heads up, we wrote this post in June 2021 so it might be outdated!

Avoid, Prevent, Keep It Simple

Avoiding sun damage is the key to maintaining skin health. During the summer, keep your skin care routine simple and prioritize preventing sun damage from occurring in the first place. Use physical barriers like hats, sunglasses and clothing to shield your skin from UV rays. Minimize your time in the sun from the late morning to early afternoon. Cleanse, moisturize and apply sunscreen every day.
