Summer Skin Q & A

Easy answers to some of summer's most annoying skin problems!

Q.

My skin gets so oily in the summer. What can I do to control it?

A.
Beyond Belief ABH Products

Using a skin care regimen that includes alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids can make a difference in controlling oil under the skin's surface. Beyond Belief ABH Pore Refining Foaming Cleanser gives your skin a deep-down-clean start. Follow up with Beyond Belief ABH Shine Control Mattifying Toner. It is pH balanced to tighten and refine pores, and contains oil-absorbing mineral powder for a shine-free finish. Next, don't forget to apply sunscreen. Research shows that exposure to UV light stimulates oil production. Beyond Belief Vita C+ SPF 15 Sunscreen is a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that uses vitamins to clarify the skin as it protects skin from sun damage. To complete your shine-free skin care regimen, use Beyond Belief ABH Pore Refining Exfoliating Scrub several times a week and Beyond Belief ABH Pore Refining Clay Mask weekly.

Q.

What's the best way to prevent my lips from getting sunburned?

A.
Pucker Up MediLip Balm Stick SPF 30

Lips have little or no natural sun protection, so it's important to protect them from damaging sun rays. Pucker Up MediLip Lip Balm Stick SPF 30 includes cooling and soothing ingredients, as well as SPF 30 sunscreen. To keep lips protected, reapply sunscreen frequently, especially after eating, drinking, swimming, playing sports, and kissing!

Q.

Even when I wear sunscreen, my nose gets red! What's going on?

A.
Femme Couture Mineral Effects Mineral Makeup

Noses tend to be oily, so sunscreen doesn't stay on well. To disguise redness and prevent burning, top your sunscreen with Femme Couture Mineral Effects Mineral Makeup. This natural mineral powder will help set your sunscreen as it conceals flaws, minimizes pores, and adds its own natural sun protection.

Q.

Is there anything I can use to get rid of or at least soften tan lines?

A.
Tanwise Exfoliating Self Tan Remover

Whether it's from the sun or from a bottle, a tan goes away as your skin naturally sloughs off. You can accelerate the process and diminish tan lines by using an exfoliating scrub, such as Spa Touch Green Tea Mint Body Scrub with organic extracts and essential oils or Tanwise Exfoliating Self Tan Remover, which also removes stains caused by self-tanning products.

Q.

I tend to get ingrown hairs around the bikini line. How can I prevent this?

A.
GiGi No Bump Rx Treatment

GiGi No Bump Rx Treatment is formulated to help eliminate bumps and ingrown hairs resulting from waxing, shaving, and electrolysis.This formula is non-irritating and is specially formulated to soothe while rebuilding healthy, bump-free skin.
