Jamie, one of our premier aestheticians and skin care specialists, wants you to keep that youthful glow all summer long. Here are some of her tried and true skincare essentials that help her look ah-mazing all summer long:
Sunscreen – by far, the most basic, yet, essential of them all. When selecting a sunscreen, Jamie advises her clients to examine the label and look for key phrases, such as “broad-spectrum, protecting against both UVA and UVB rays, and “water-resistant,” ensuring protection while you’re swimming or sweating in the hot summer sun. Always opt for an SPF of 30 or higher. Elta MD is Jamie’s favorite, which she describes as “very light and leaves you with a seriously glowing sheen.”
BOTOX – one of the best treatments any time of the year. Jamie especially loves it for the Mid-Atlantic summer months because it requires little to no downtime. Treatments typically take 15 to 30 minutes and you’ll notice results within a week of the treatment. You’ll look refreshed and ready to tackle that crazy summer schedule!
SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum – one of the few skincare products that truly gives you makeup-optional skin. Full of skin-regenerating peptides and antioxidants, this unique formula will not only protect your skin from future damage but also help to heal past damage. The TNS Essential Serum is a beauty game-changer.
SkinMedica Lytera – a fantastic, non-hydroquinone, brightening lotion to correct surface pigmentation with alpha-hydroxy acid. This powerful lotion keeps your unwanted brown spots and splotches at bay as the summer sun tries to coax them out.
HydraFacial – to help tackle dull, dry skin and blemishes. HydraFacial super serums are made with nourishing ingredients that create an instantly gratifying glow.
Latisse – long lashes make a HUGE impact on your appearance, adding that youthful pop to your eyes. Within weeks, you’ll see a significant improvement in the length and thickness of your lashes.
Clarisonic – to clear away all the dirt, sweat, oils and extra sunscreen that summer brings. Clarisonic brushes clean the skin six times better than hands alone and allow for better penetration of products applied after use. Clairsonic helps your skin feel fresh and clean all summer long.
