Get Glowing Summer Skin
Prepping skin for summer means more than just relying on your trusty face wash; an effective skincare regimen includes multiple products and precise application, explains Teresa Stenzel, director of education at Bioelements. Here are her top tips to achieve a healthy, luminous complexion.
>> START WITH A CLEAN SLATE. Cleansers alone don't always unclog pores and wipe away dirt and oil, so your first task should be to remove any and all makeup.
>> TONE UP. Rehydrate and balance skin's texture with a simple swipe of toner. The saturation found in this essential product will help skin to absorb the active ingredients in products you'll apply next.
>> BE SMART WITH SERUMS. Now that your skin is prepped, apply a skin serum designed to target your biggest concern. If you have more than one skin concern, you can alternate, applying one during the day and the other at night.
>> MOISTURIZE AND PROTECT. Perhaps the most crucial step, hydrating skin while guarding it from the sun's harmful UV rays is imperative to a healthy appearance. Always apply a daily moisturizing sunscreen before leaving the house for optimal protection.
