Summer is the season for fun, sun and enjoying the great outdoors. However, all that time spent outside can take a toll on your skin. The summer sun can cause damage, dehydration and premature aging, leaving your skin dull, dry and wrinkled. That's why taking extra care of your skin during summer is crucial.
We've got you covered! At Aesthetic Envy, we know how important it is to care for your skin during summer. In this guide, we'll share our top tips for protecting and nourishing your skin during the summer and our favorite treatments and products to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
But First, Why?
Keeping your skin healthy all summer offers several benefits, including increased self-confidence and self-esteem. It can help prevent skin problems and aging effects that often arise from sun exposure. And ensuring the safety of your skin in the summertime can motivate you to spend more time outside enjoying the beautiful weather.

Remember to take care of the skin on the rest of your body as well! Here are the ways in which each of these procedures can do your skin some good this summer:
treatments can help to contour and shape the body, making it an excellent option for getting ready for swimsuit season. They can reduce unwanted fat in specific areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, or arms.

treatments, such as Viora®, combine RF energy and vacuum therapy to stimulate the body's natural regeneration process and trigger lipolysis to reduce fat cell volume in your abdomen, hips, waist, under the chin, jowls, arms and inner and outer thighs.
treatments use lasers to break up the ink, allowing the body to eliminate the particles over time naturally. This can be an excellent option for those with a tattoo that they no longer want to show off in summer clothing.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
To safeguard your skin from the sun, be sure to take precautionary measures when heading outdoors.
Use broad-spectrum sunscreen generously
: Make sure your sunblock has an SPF of no less than 30, and reapply every two hours when spending ample time outdoors.
Avoid prolonged periods in the sun
: Consider wearing a UV-blocking hat and sunglasses to shield your face and eyes and keep cool in the shade during the hottest times of the day.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
The summer heat can leave your skin feeling dry and dehydrated, so drinking plenty of H20 and using a good moisturizer is essential. Look for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that won't clog your pores, and apply it daily after you cleanse your skin.

Exfoliate Old Cells Away
Exfoliating your skin removes dead skin cells and reveals smoother, healthier-looking skin. Just be careful not to overdo it since too much exfoliation can irritate your skin and leave it more vulnerable to the sun. Try using a gentle exfoliating scrub once a week, or consider a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment at our med spa for a deeper exfoliation.
AE Brightening Glow Pads
This non-drug cosmetic formula incorporates botanical ingredients that improve skin tone and protective antioxidants that brighten and soothe the skin.
Take Care of Your Lips
When it comes to summer skincare, it's easy to forget about our lips. But, they can get dry, cracked and sunburned, too. And they deserve special treatment.
To keep soft lips all summer long, here are some tips:
Use an SPF lip balm
: Your lips also need protection from UV rays. Apply a lip balm that contains SPF 30 or higher to keep your lips safe.
Avoid licking your lips
: Licking them can make your lips dry and chapped, as the saliva can evaporate quickly and leave your lips feeling even more parched. Instead, reach for a lip balm when your lips are feeling dry and apply regularly.
: A moisturizing lip balm throughout the day keeps your lips hydrated and prevents them from drying or cracking.
AE Envy My Lips
