It’s time to lighten up on those heavy creams and incorporate barely there, but effective hydrating systems for the Summer. Why? Because your skin generally becomes more oily during the Summer and the need for heavy hydration is less necessary.
Lightweight anything during the warmer months is the key to happiness while managing significant temperature spikes and Elizabeth Arden’s PREVAGE® Hydrating Fluid ($119, elizabetharden.com) is the answer to your prayers. PREVAGE is by far one of the best moisturizing products your face will ever come in contact with because it feels like nothing’s there. Other benefits include no wait-to-absorb time and you can apply PREVAGE over an equally lightweight sunscreen like Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ Sunscreen.
As the heat index revs up you should also invest in a pair of sunglasses and an eye cream. Sunglasses are your defense against squinting, which as you know is a huge contributor to the forming of wrinkles around the eyes and an eye cream like Physician’s Formula Hydrating Eye Cream ($19.95, physiciansformulaskincare.com) will help you treat lines that have already settled in and any dark under eye circles you may have. The key to having healthy skin around your eyes is hydration, hydration, hydration and PF gives you that via a gel-cream formula that includes ingredients like Hydra Glucuronic Acid Complex - a scientific way of saying that it plumps and hydrates your skin to help you achieve just that.
