Welcome summer and warm, sunny weather! If you're an outdoor enthusiast, this is your time. June brings us National Camping Month and National Great Outdoors Month! Whether you plan on hitting the trails for a back-country hiking adventure, or a laid-back overnight camping trip with the kids at a local state park, you’ll have to make some adjustments to your daily skin care regimen. Here are two of the best skin care products to pack in your bag for outdoor adventures, as well as how to store your products for optimal portability.
Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF 50
As always, the most vital product to keep on hand while spending time outside is sunscreen. All outdoor enthusiasts understand the importance of packing light, especially if your excursion involves hiking to and from your campsite. Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush with SPF 50 is a lightweight, powder sunscreen that provides long-lasting, broad spectrum sun protection. It has a water-resistant formula and features a built-in brush which you can simply sweep across your skin for instant sun protection. As an added bonus, the powder also provides sheer coverage to minimize fine lines and other flaws, so you’ll look and feel great on the trail.
Is Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance Plus
Out in the woods, you are especially susceptible to getting insect bites. In order to avoid scratching your bites and irritating your skin further, you will want to keep some relief on-hand for the inevitable. iS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance Plus is an antioxidant-rich serum that combines time-released vitamin C with a blend of botanicals to treat not only insect bites, but also acne, rosacea and contact dermatitis. The serum combines olive leaf extract with vitamin C to provide maximum antioxidant protection and health-promoting benefits and is ideal for sensitive and compromised skin types.
Pack for Portability
What about your cleanser, toner, moisturizer and other beauty products? While bringing travel size products is a great way to save precious space in your backpack, there are several other “hacks” for packing your toiletries. The HuffPost shared 15 of the best tips for packing toiletries, including storing skin care products in straws and using contact cases to hold liquid makeup. In addition, a hanging towel carrying case or attaching your travel-size products to a lanyard would be perfect for campground shower houses.
Wherever your summer adventures take you, we wish you happy trails and healthy skin! If you have any questions or concerns about taking your skin care to the great outdoors, feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our aestheticians at Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center.
