The products you use during summer months will largely depend on your skin type.
For this blog, we'll focus on two ingredients/products that all skin types should be incorporating into their summer routines.
First up, you guessed it... SPF.
Not all SPF is created equal though, so we urge you that if you haven't found an SPF product you love or just even tolerate wearing, PLEASE do not give up.
UV radiation is cumulative and we know it causes skin cancers + the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
Broad-spectrum SPF 15+ should be reapplied every 2 hours and worn anywhere that UV rays can reach. (ie. if you work indoors near a large window)
At Corrective Skincare LA, we currently carry 2 SPF options: Coola's White Tea SPF 50 & Peter Thomas Roths' All-Day Moisture Defense SPF 30.
The second product type everyone should be incorporating into their routines is antioxidant care.
Antioxidants work as free-radical fighters within our body & skin tissue. Free radicals are caused by things like smoke, pollution, and even UV rays.
Without going into too much detail about chemistry + molecules, free radicals cause damage to our cells. Antioxidants help to prevent and reduce this damage.
One of the most studied antioxidants in skincare is Vitamin C.
Think of it like eating an orange for health + wellness, but specifically for your face.
Vitamin C when applied topically has SO MANY benefits including improved skin tone & texture + reduced hyperpigmentation.
Antioxidant care also works synergistically with SPF for better skin protection. This is why we recommend applying your antioxidant product(s) prior to your SPF in the morning.
Corrective Skincare's Vitamin C Complex Serum is perfect for the summer + all year round.
This powerful but gentle antioxidant serum has a mildly hydrating formula & contains Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Ascorbic Acid, Glycerin & Green Tea Extract (also an antioxidant!).
It's suitable for all skin types, including blemish-prone & sensitive.
All CSLA skincare products can be purchased through our website.
