Summer is here and as temperatures continue to soar, your skin may be in need of some extra TLC. Whether you want glowing skin, or to maintain good skin care habits, here are four excellent tips to get the most beautiful summer skin:
1. Antioxidants are Key!
Consuming and applying certain antioxidants, especially vitamin C, will actually boost your skin’s strength against the sun’s damaging rays. Apply a high-quality vitamin C serum daily and eat plenty of berries, beans, nuts, citrus and green veggies to add protection from the inside out.

2. Nourish Skin
If you have dry skin, the hot summer months can make it worse. A great way to boost your hydration levels is with regular hydrating facials that delivers moisture to the deeper layers of skin. You’ll notice a difference right away in the way your skin looks and feels. For every day, keep skin nourished and toned with a hydrating spray to activate your skin’s natural oils, which will improve dry skin over time.
