Our lead aesthetician Serena, (@_skinbyserena) is giving us 5 MUST HAVES this summer for hydrated, glowing skin. Shop her recommendations online or in person. Healthy skin is only a professional regimen away!


There‘s so many cleansers out there, but if you’re new to skincare just make you sure you start with a gentle one. A cleanser shouldn’t leave your skin feeling dry, tight, or uncomfortable. You’ll know you have a gentle cleanser when you can perform a double cleanse without any irritation. You should be cleansing everyday, morning and night.

Hydrating toner mists are a simple, but effective product I recommend to everyone in the summer. These toners can have their own unique benefits, but they all provide a boost of refreshing hydration. (If you get the Cucumber Hydration Toner then its just the best smell ever!) Hydrating toners are a product that all skin types can benefit from!

Can‘t forget about our antioxidants! They say you are what you eat and in this case it’s what you eat and put on your face! Professional, antioxidant-rich serums deliver amazing results and are key in preventative and corrective treatments. Use in the morning after you tone and before moisturizing. We’re proud to carry a variety of antioxidant serums for every skin type and need so there’s no excuse to not wear one!

You would be surprised how many people actually don’t wear moisturizer. Lack of moisture can lead to dry, itchy, and irritated skin. Some people on the other hand, use the wrong moisturizer for their skin type and can suffer from clogged pores, irritation, & excessive oils. Wherever you find yourself, just know it is possible to find balance in your products. No skin routine is complete without a good moisturizer. Schedule a consultation if you’re not sure which one may be best for you.

Last, but not least. The one everyone hates to hear, and pretends to do… SUNSCREEN! Please, please, please wear your SPF ladies & gentlemen. If you’re going to do anything to take care of your skin start with protecting it. I can’t stress how important it is. It is a MUST if you’re getting facial treatments. It’s a MUST if you care about your appearance and how you age. And it is a MUST if you care about your overall health, because girl, skin cancer is not to be taken lightly. Did you know 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70? Yikes. I recommend a stand alone spf of 30 or higher. Proper sunscreens should also be broad-spectrum to protect your skin from both UVA & UVB rays. So no, your moisturizer or foundation with spf 15 is not enough. You can pick up a decent sunscreen almost anywhere, but if you’re picky with your sunscreen like most, try one of my favorites below. I promise they will not disappoint. Proper application is every morning after moisturizer and reapply every 2 hours. (yes even if you “don’t go outside” 🙂
