Summer Skincare Must-Haves: Expert Picks for Glowing Skin

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, but it's also important to protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays. Here, Alex Echeverri, licensed aesthetician and founder of John and Ginger, shares her expert picks to keep your skin healthy, glowing, and summer-ready:

1. Sun Protection Made Easy: Dermalogica Porescreen SPF40

Summer Essential: Beat the summer sun with Dermalogica Porescreen SPF40 – a lightweight, sheer sunscreen perfect for daily wear. This oil-free formula provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, the key to preventing premature aging and sun damage. Plus, the blurring effect minimizes the appearance of pores for a flawless, summer-ready complexion.

Alex says: "I love this lightweight formula! It blurs imperfections perfectly when you want a no-makeup makeup look, making it ideal for those carefree summer days."

2. Summer Skin Savior: Medik8 C-Tetra

Summer Skin Boost: For a summer skin boost, I recommend Medik8 C-Tetra. As a licensed aesthetician, I've seen firsthand the impact of sun exposure on skin barrier health. This vitamin C serum nourishes and brightens, while also protecting against future damage.

Alex says: "My pigmentation has noticeably faded since incorporating Medik8 C-Tetra into my routine. It's a fantastic product to help your skin recover from sun damage and achieve a radiant summer glow."

3. Effortless Summer Glow: Sienna X Express Q10 Self Tan Tinted Mousse 200ml

Get that Beach Babe Look: Get a gorgeous, natural-looking tan quickly and easily with Sienna X Express Q10 Self Tan Tinted Mousse 200ml. This fast-acting formula allows you to achieve a beautiful summer glow in just a few hours, without the commitment of overnight application.

Salon Expertise: We use Sienna X spray tans in our salon, and this at-home version delivers similar professional results. Achieve that beach babe look from the comfort of your own home!

4. Summer Eye Looks: Eye Of Horus Eye Pencils

Effortless Eye Drama: For effortless summer eye looks, I love the versatility of Eye Of Horus Eye Pencils. The paraben-free, creamy formula allows for easy application and long-lasting wear, perfect for creating sultry or dramatic looks that last all day long.

Alex says: "These pencils are a must-have for summer! They come in a variety of shades, so you can create endless eye looks, from a subtle daytime smoky eye to a dramatic evening look."

5. Bonus Pick: Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask

Summer Skin SOS: One of our favourite masks at the salon, used by all of us when we want to get radiant-looking skin quickly, is the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask. This mask restores stressed and damaged skin, making it the perfect remedy for dull, dry, dehydrated, lackluster, and photo-damaged skin – all common concerns after a day of summer fun.

With these expert picks and a little extra TLC, your skin will be glowing and healthy all summer long! Don't forget to visit our website to learn more about these products and explore our full range of summer skincare essentials.
