Jill Caruso’s Hacks To Perfect Summer Skin
We know it’s been cloudy, but the sun’s gotta come out one day, and when it does, who better to keep our skin healthy than a renowned beauty pro? Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Jill Caruso is sharing with us her top five hacks to keeping our skin gorgeous – inside and out – all summer long.
1. Use SPF Daily
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.
- EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44
- SkinMedica Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35
2. Pucker Up Those 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
- SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
- Colorscience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35
3. Embrace Botox
It 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 Your SPF
Reapply SPF without messing your makeup! Carry a brush-on mineral SPF, which is easy to use and super convenient.
- 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.
