Caring for your skin during the summer can be a challenge. Busy schedules, long days, outdoor outings, and increased exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can be a recipe for disaster for your complexion.
Luckily, there are a number of products that can make caring for your skin easier in the summer – and year round.
Here are a few products we HIGHLY recommend when it comes to summertime skincare. You can find all of these products available for purchase in our online store!
Top Summer Skincare Products to Keep Your Skin Healthy
Here at Garcia Plastic & Hand Surgery, we’re big fans of SkinMedica products. Here are a few of our favorite SkinMedica products that we think are MUST HAVES for the summer!
1. Total Defense & Repair
Looking for sun protection and age defense all in one product? SkinMedica’s Total Defense & Repair is IT! Appropriate for all skin types, this product is a superscreen (more than just sunscreen) that protects your skin from UV rays and infrared rays while supporting the skin’s ability to restore itself.
Available in a variety of SPFs, SkinMedica’s Total Defense & Repair is water resistant, oil free and fragrance free. Learn more about this, and SkinMedica’s other Age Defense products, here.
2. Essential Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
Healthy summer skin starts with sunscreen! SkinMedica’s Essential Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreens are lightweight and gentle on skin. They won’t make your skin oily or greasy. Instead, they protect against damaging UVA and UVB rays without clogging your pores! With a hypoallergenic formula that’s oil and fragrance free, SkinMedica can help you take your sun protection to a new level.

3. Ultra Sheer Moisturizer
Summertime dry skin is a common problem. The summer heat and sun exposure can wreak havoc on your vulnerable skin, leaving you with dry, flaky patches that may make you self conscious about your complexion.
This summer, try something different! SkinMedica’s Ultra Sheer Moisturizer helps to hydrate your skin, leaving your face feeling moisturized and healthy! If you’re looking to improve the overall appearance of your skin, this lightweight moisturizer is for you.
4. Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum
Minimize the appearance of skin discolorations and dark spots and brighten your summer skin! With Lytera 2.0 you’ll see improvements in as little as two weeks, with more dramatic results occurring at 12 weeks and beyond.
Lytera 2.0 is an advanced formulation that works quickly and is appropriate for all skin types.
5. Facial Cleanser
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably tried a bunch of facial cleansers only to be disappointed. It’s tough to find a cleanser that does it all – but we finally have!
SkinMedica’s Facial Cleanser is a customer favorite. Appropriate for all skin types, this facial cleanser removes environmental pollutants, excess oil and makeup while hydrating and refreshing the skin. If you want to enjoy clear, healthy skin all summer long this is the cleanser for you!

5. Vitamin C&E Complex
While our summer skin care mantra is sunscreen, sunscreen, SUNSCREEN, Vitamin C is your other summer skincare BFF! Vitamin C helps block the effects of tyrosinase (the enzyme responsible for melanin production in the skin). It also reduces the oxidation of existing brown spots, preventing them from getting darker. Do you struggle more with acne or rosacea in the summer months? Vitamin C has potent anti-inflammatory properties making it the perfect add on to your skin care regimen this summer for a more gorgeous, even-toned complexion.
Appropriate for all skin types, our SkinMedica Vitamin C&E is applied before your daily moisturizer and sunscreen. If you want to prevent new, or worsening of brown sun spots this summer, use Vitamin C&E daily with our Lytera Pigment Correcting Serum, Total Defense & Repair, and evening Retinol! This combination of products is the ultimate in addressing hyperpigmentation during the warm, summer months.
