Top 5 tips to keep you looking your best in the summer and beyond!

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and while most everyone is ready to embrace the warm weather, it’s important to remember that the sun’s rays can reak havoc on your skin, with both short term and long term results. Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Jill Caruso is sharing her top five tips to keep you looking your best in the summer and beyond, along with her favorite products* that will help keep your skin in top condition!


1.     Use SPF every day - There is good reason you get this advice over and over again.  This is a non-negotiable for healthy skin. Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful UVA/UVB rays is mandatory for skin health and anti-aging.
Jill’s Picks:
    EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44

    SkinMedica Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35


2.     Don't forget your lips! - This delicate area is often forgotten, but the lips require sun protection and hydration.  Lips are just as susceptible to sun damage as the rest of the face. Lips tend to get dried out so when not in the sun make sure to hydrate them
Jill’s Picks:
    SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator

    Colorscience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35


3.     Botox helps prevent wrinkles... and sweat! - By temporarily paralyzing muscles, you are able to prevent future wrinkles. This is especially important around the "crow's feet" area in the summer, when we tend to squint more in the sun.  Botox is also used for hyperhidrosis, so you can prevent excess sweat on the forehead, as well as and sweaty armpits! 

4.     Reapply SPF without messing your makeup! - Carry a brush-on mineral SPF, which is easy to use and super convenient. 
Jill’s Picks:
    Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50

    Avène High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50


5.     Use nightly fading cream - Dark spots tend to appear more in the summer when the skin is being constantly exposed to the sun.
Jill’s Picks:
     Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

     SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum
