We asked Mario Badescu beauty expert Nicole Darmanin about her tips for radiant skin during the summer months where, despite our best intentions, we’re getting to much sun, salt water, chlorine and drying heat.
“Skin takes center stage during the summer months so make sure yours looks healthy and vibrant. SPF is a must, along with cooling products to refresh, and lightweight moisturizers that keep skin soft and glowing from head to toe,” Nicole told us. ” Glowing skin is your best accessory!’
Towards that aim we put together these faves from Nicole’s arsenal:
1) Collagen Moisturizer (SPF 15): . Ultra-lightweight, daily moisture and moderate sun protection all-in-one. Collagen-rich formula protects skin from moisture loss and keeps skin smooth, plump and healthy without the use of heavy oils.
2) Self Tanning Lotion. Kinda self- explanatory, right? What we like about this particular product is that it’s a lightweight, oil-free self tanning lotion. Hydrate your skin and achieve a healthy, subtle glow within 2 hours of application. Safe and gentle for use on face. As always, best results when used after our face and body exfoliants.
3) After Sun Cooling gel: Okay, so you were playing volleyball and forgot to reapply your sunscreen. This cooling gel is enriched with aloe to soothe skin and reduce the sting and discomfort of a sun burn. This non-greasy, lightweight gel cools immediately upon contact.
4) Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater: A refreshing hydrating mist to use anywhere, anytime. Simply formulated with fragrant Herbal Extracts and Rosewater for a pleasant, pick me up for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin. Hint: we use ours during the day to keep our skin hydrated.
