When June comes rolling in, “summer time and the livin’ is easy” always seems like an ideal motto to live by. Unfortunately, they roll out just as quickly after Labor Day leaving “what was once a cute, careless sun-kissed look,” dry, uneven, and heaven forbid, leather-like skin! OY!
Give your skin a little post-summer rehab with the below beauty essentials that will alleviate skin issues associated with sun damage. Simply apply as needed to carry on summer’s radiance throughout the year!
Problem: Sun Spots
Solution: Cosmedicine Triple-P
This revolutionary skin-saver serves as a daily vitamin for our most visible attribute—the skin. Decades of research led the Cosmedicine team to reveal the perfect formulation to effectively reverse the harmful visual effects of environmental damage, lessening the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles while brightening and illuminating skin’s overall complexion.
In clinical tests, study participants experienced 60% increase in protection against free-radical damage (as compared to beta-carotene) after using Triple-P for eight weeks.

Problem: Nasty, Peeling Skin
Solution: VENeffect Micro Exfoliant
Though you may plan to give your skin a breather from makeup in the summer, sometimes a bit of foundation is needed to cover up unwanted blemishes and redness. Caked-on makeup mixed with sweat from extreme temps can lead to an even worse situation – clogged pores and acne.
Once or twice a week, gently exfoliate skin to remove dead skin cells with VENeffect’s Micro Exfoliant. Ultra-fine microdermabrasion transforms dull skin to a smoother, more luminous complexion while infusing plant-based anti-aging technology.
