In the heat of the summer season, it can feel overwhelming to know which skincare products to stick with or add to a summer skincare routine, especially here in St. Pete with so many outdoor activity options. It should go without saying that sun protection should be prioritized, but what else is important to have in your beauty bag for the season? Let’s dive right into our recommendations.
At Coco Med Spa in St. Pete, skincare is an essential part of getting the best out of the skincare services that you have here in the spa. It is a part of maintenance, additional treatment, and the overall preservation of your skin’s health. Therefore, we take it seriously and hope you will too!
Summer Skin Must-Haves
Although we’ve mentioned it, it bears repeating, sunscreen is a must. Two of our favorites include the Physical Fusion Sunscreen and Daily Brightening Sunscreen, both by Skinceuticals. Both of these sunscreens are safe for pregnancy as well.
You can never go wrong with a great cleanser and hydration alongside your other favorite treatments. It is common to switch cleansers and moisturizers from winter to summer to accommodate for more or less oil production, the desire for lighter formulas, and other skincare preferences. Don’t be afraid to ask us for personalized recommendations!
The regenerative power of platelets is a great defense against the effects of sun exposure. One powerhouse product that you should consider adding to your skincare routine is ( plated )™. This highly effective product is skyrocketing in popularity here at Coco Med Spa and for good reason. The topically applied product offers unparalleled anti-aging and rejuvenating results that fit well into any existing skincare routine.
Use With Caution
When it comes to fun in the sun, there are certain products and services you should use with care until the season changes. We recommend limiting actives like retinol that can cause more harm than good when combined with extra sun exposure.
It is also a good idea to avoid treatments like peels as they increase burn risk and pose an opportunity to create hyperpigmentation. Again, stay vigilant with your sunscreen if you’ve invested in this service during the cooler months. Your progress is important and new sun damage isn’t worth it.
At Coco Med Spa in St. Pete, we carry many professional-grade skincare products like Skinceuticals and Skinbetter Science, in the spa. We offer an even wider selection of these brands through our online retail option. Stop in to see us for a refresh of your summer skincare routine. We can’t wait to help you!
