Top 4 Summer Skincare Essentials

By Carina Bonasera | July 20, 2018 | Style & Beauty

Warm temperatures and long, gorgeous days make it easy to forget that summer is no friend to your skin. We’ve gathered some of the hottest items of the season so that you can stay cool — in every sense of the word.

Sunscreen You’ll Be Excited to Wear


Bâton de Soleil, Kindred Skincare Co., $38,

Sunscreen doesn’t have to be synonymous with streaky, chemical-infused goop. With all-organic ingredients and a solid-stick form, Kindred’s Bâton de Soleil is as elegant as it is easy to apply.

A Daily Moisturizer That Doubles As Sun Protection


DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant 24H-Moisture Creme Oil-Free SPF 25, Estée Lauder, $54,

By now, we’ve all heard that moisturizer and sunscreen are daily necessities— regardless of the weather. Look to Estée Lauder’s DayWear Multi-Protection moisturizer for a daily-wear that shields your skin from sun damage while also hydrating and reducing fine lines.

Allies of Skin Overnight Mask


1A Overnight Mask, Allies of Skin, $109,

This vegan overnight face mask is powerful yet lightweight. It can boost your skin’s immunity, erase imperfections, reverse sun damage, and even reduce acne - all while you sleep.

Burn-relieving Balm


After-Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe, Clinique, $25,

Although you should be careful, no one is perfect (especially when it comes to reapplying). Luckily, Clinique has you covered with its After Sun Rescue Balm. It contains aloe and is oil-free, fragrance-free, and non-acnegenic, so your skin can repair itself without unpleasant side effects.
