Jamie’s Summer Skincare Essentials

Summer is a wonderful time to go fresh-faced and makeup-free. Jamie, one of our premier aestheticians and skin care specialists, loves helping patients keep that youthful glow during the hotter months.

Whether you’re looking for soothing serums or a quick BOTOX® session, our Baltimore dermatology team has you covered. Here are some of Jamie’s tried and true skincare essentials that help her look ah-mazing all summer long.


Sunscreen is the most basic – yet essential – skincare item of them all. You want to ensure that you’re protected while swimming or sweating in the hot summer sun. When selecting a sunscreen, Jamie advises clients to examine the label and look for important key phrases, such as:

  • Broad-spectrum
  • Protecting against both UVA and UVB rays
  • Water-resistant

Always opt for an SPF of 30 or higher. Elta MD is Jamie’s personal favorite, which she describes as “very light, leaving you with a seriously glowing sheen.”


While BOTOX is a fantastic wrinkle-erasing treatment any time of year, Jamie especially loves it for the Mid-Atlantic summer months. Injection sessions require little to no downtime. That means less time in the office, and more time enjoying the summer sun!

BOTOX appointments take 15 to 30 minutes and begin showing results within a week of the treatment. You’ll look refreshed and ready to tackle that crazy summer schedule!

SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum

This soothing serum is one of the few skincare products that truly gives you makeup-optional skin. Full of skin-regenerating peptides and antioxidants, its unique formula will not only protect your skin from future damage, but also help to heal past imperfections. The TNS Essential Serum is a beauty game-changer — and one of Jamie’s favorites!

SkinMedica Lytera

This brightening lotion has a fantastic, non-hydroquinone formula that helps even out skin tone and support melanin balance. The alpha-hydroxy acid corrects surface pigmentation and works with all skin types. Keep your brown spots and splotches at bay as the summer sun tries to coax them out.


Tackle dull, dry skin and blemishes by giving your face a refreshing splash. HydraFacial super serums are made with nourishing ingredients (like antioxidants and peptides) that create an instantly gratifying glow.


Your skin isn’t the only thing that should be pampered this summer. Long lashes make a huge impact on your appearance and add a youthful pop to the eyes.

Within weeks after a Latisse treatment, you’ll see significant improvement in the length and thickness of your lashes. Don’t worry — you can now leave the waterproof mascara at home!


It’s important to clear away all the dirt, sweat, oils, and extra sunscreen that summer brings. Clarisonic brushes clean the skin 6 times better than hands alone, allowing for better penetration of products applied after use. Proper cleansing gives your face a soft, clear base. With Clarisonic, your skin can feel fresh and clean all summer long.

And there you have it! These are Jamie’s top tips for creating a fresh-faced, long-lashed look. All you need is a cute dress to be completely summer ready!
