Summer vacation is here. And while it’s time for fun in the sun, keeping our skin nourished is extremely important.
Skin Care Heaven, a skin care store and skin research center based in San Diego, is serving up a summer vacation checklist to help make sure everyone’s skin stays healthy and gorgeous.
“Even though summer vacation is a time to relax, one thing we cannot relax on is our skin care regimen because we have to protect it from premature aging from the sun and keep it well hydrated,” the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said. “There are core products we don’t want to forget when we are traveling.”
This suitcase list includes:
“One really popular must-have for your getaway is the mini travel size Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar which buffs away dull skin for a more glowing and silky look in those summertime fashions,” she said. “This bar is also clinically proven to help with stretch marks and cellulite.”
For those who aren’t committed to a skin care manufacturer, summer vacation is a great time to pick up a travel skin care set. Not only is it light to pack, but it gives you the opportunity to test a new skin care regimen for a fraction of the cost.
“If you are flying to your destination, don’t forget to keep your lip balm, moisturizer and lotion on hand since air travel will dehydrate your skin,” she said. “And be sure you meet those carry-on 3.4 ounce TSA rules so you aren’t forced to leave your favorite products at the security checkpoint.”
With the right skin care arsenal, summer skin will look luminous and radiant.

With warmer temperatures on the horizon, it’s time to bare those arms and legs with summertime fashion. Here are some body skin care tips to help keep skin looking healthy and gorgeous all summer long.
Dry Skin Treatment
Body exfoliation will give skin the jumpstart it needs.
The Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar is considered the first body microdermabrasion at home program.
“This soap bar lathers quickly while it gently removes dead skin cells which will help leave your skin toned and luminous,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven based in San Diego. “It also works hard to treat ingrown hairs, cellulite and stretch marks.”
Another way to exfoliate while showering or bathing is with Le Edge. Its stainless steel blade is an all natural exfoliating and gentle tool. It removes dead skin, dirt, debris and other impurities.
Another great body treatment is a sugar scrub exfoliator.
“One of our favorites is the Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub which has coconut oils and flower extracts in its ingredients to help soften and nourish the skin,” she said. “It gently exfoliates the skin with natural alpha-hydroxys which will leave your skin hydrated and rejuvenated.”
Treating Dry Feet
“Using the dry skin tips as mentioned before such as the Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar, Le Edge, and Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub are great treatments,” said the spokesperson. “If your feet need a bit more attention, at night, you can soak them in Epsom salts and warm water for about 10 minutes; afterward, you can use our favorite products for a deeper exfoliation.”
Hydrating The Skin
Some popular choices include:
“While you are hydrating your body, don’t forget to do your hands, too,” she said.
Other Quick Tips
• Use a non-soap cleanser to prevent skin dehydration
Following these simple steps will lead to gorgeous and radiant summer skin.

With the summer months just around the corner, many are trying to get their body swimsuit ready. And one thing on the list to take care of is those stretch marks.
There are a couple reasons why women may have these white colored streaks on their thighs, belly, hips, breasts, upper arms and even the lower back. One is post pregnancy and the other is significant weight loss.
“A stretch mark occurs when there is a breakdown in the dermis which can also be referred to as a fracture of the dermis, as well,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven based in Carlsbad. “A stretch mark indicates that our skin has become fatigued when it was stretched during a weight gain or pregnancy and is having a hard time returning to its original shape and length.”
While there are many products on the market for stretch mark treatments, Skin Care Heaven has voted on their favorite ones to help rejuvenate the skin.
The first is called Lierac Phytolastil Gel.
“This topical is widely used in Europe and is known for treating and preventing stretch marks during pregnancy with a bio-element formula,” she said. “Lierac uses natural bio-nutrients like ivy, horsetail, and alchemlia to jumpstart a fibro-blast synthesis which helps fade stretch marks at a clinical level.”
Another product which can be used alone or in adjunct with the Lierac Phytolastil Gel is the Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar. Skin care professionals are also calling it the first easy-to-use body microdermabrasion at-home program.
The soap bar lathers quickly while it buffs away dead skin cells which leave skin toned and luminous.
“The Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar is also clinically proven to treat ingrown hairs, stretch marks, cellulite, and eczema,” the spokesperson shared.
While choosing the best stretch mark treatments, other preventative tips include:
• Maintain a healthy weight
Before starting any stretch mark therapy, especially when pregnant, it’s always advised to speak with your health care professional.
Here’s to summer filled with beautiful and healthy looking skin.

A new generation of skin care is embracing not only innovative science and technology, but also paraben-free products. A group of conscious consumers are now looking for healthy skin care substitutes.

Keeping on track with skin care goals can be a challenge when traveling. Not only is sticking to a routine a challenge, but if air travel is part of the getaway, the rules for carry-on items can make things more difficult.
Skin Care Heaven, a leading online skin care store and research center based in San Diego offered some tips can make this task a breeze.
“Spring travel is a season where we don’t want to lose sight of our skin care regimen because it’s recovering from the wintertime damage of dehydrated skin,” the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said. “There are core products that we don’t want to skimp out on so we can keep our skin healthy and looking great while we are away.”
Travel skin care sets, the spokesperson said, are a great choice because most meet the carry-on TSA requirement of 3.4 ounces or less.
“And travel skin care sets really give you the opportunity to try a new skin care regimen for a fraction of the cost,” she said.
On the flipside, if someone already likes the current products they are using, they can pack the following must-haves:
“If the above products come in larger than 3.4 ounces than you need to figure out if you want to transfer a portion in travel containers for your carry-on or just put them in your checked-in luggage,” she said. “Many choose to put these skin care essentials in their carry-on just in case their luggage gets lost.”
For longer flights, the spokesperson said, it’s best to keep the lip balm, moisturizer and lotion on hand since these air travel times can be skin dehydrator moments. “If you already have dry skin, you’ll want to keep on top of it by hydrating while in flight,” she said.
Since flight regulations may regularly change, the best rule of thumb is to visit http://www.tsa.gov/ to ensure those skin care items can be cleared through TSA.

Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. The warmer weather is inviting more outdoor activity which means it’s more important than ever to apply sunscreen.
While sunscreens come in an array of sun protection factor numbers and consistency for different skin care types, they are now adding color to the ingredients. Skin Care Heaven, a skin research center and e-shopping hub based in Encinitas, has picked their favorite tinted sunscreens for this summer.
“Sunscreen has come a long way being that most are featherweight, oil-free and colorless,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “But they’ve come even farther because while they deliver solar protection some offer a tinted color to give us a sun-kissed look.”
This combination is growing really popular, said the spokesperson. While this summer sunscreen trend makes headway, Skin Care Heaven picked a couple tinted sunscreens which have received excellent feedback.
On the list is Dermaquest Skin Therapy ZinClear SPF 30 in Tan. “This Dermaquest product offers excellent coverage for various types of skin needs,” she said. “A physical and broad spectrum sunscreen, zinc oxide is part of its top ingredients which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.”
While offering a good solar defense, it also has antioxidants to help fight free-radicals which can spur premature aging.
Next on the list is EltaMD Skincare UV Physical SPF 41 Tinted Sunscreen.
“This chemical-free sunscreen offers an impressive SPF protection and is ideal for sensitive skin,” said the spokesperson.
Its natural mineral ingredients include zinc oxide and titanium oxide.
Like other sunscreens on the market, this tinted gem is water resistant, paraben-free and oil-free; and, it glides on silky smooth.
“These tinted sunscreens are so versatile that they can be applied by itself or underneath makeup,” she said. “The best part of all is that they will give you a healthy looking glow and keep your skin safe.”

The weather is warming up which means we all need to be more mindful of daily sunscreen. Picking the right sunscreen is important to protect your skin from cancer and premature aging, but what’s even more important is what types of products are out there.
And Skin Care Heaven has the information that you need in making the right choices.
Sunscreen has come a long way. They are now featherweight, non-greasy, and come in fragrance and paraben-free. Also, some of these sunscreen manufacturers offer an anti-aging and a skin recovery enhancement in its ingredients.
A full top inventory list can be found here.
A couple of these picks include Nia 24 Sun Damage Protection SPF 30 and Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 30 .
Remember, broad spectrum formulas (UVA and UVB protection) are important as well as these other ingredient options:
There is a flurry of skin safety tips when applying sunscreen. The most valuable is how sunscreen should be applied 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. And don’t be frugal with it – reports show we do not apply enough to protect our bodies.
Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours. And after a swim or perspiring, do reapply immediately.
And before diving into some outdoor playtime, do check the product expiration date to ensure optimum skin protection.
Despite how powerful a product may be it is still always wise to find shade to give skin a break, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for extra anti-aging care.

A new season is here which means it’s time to spring into new makeup colors and shades.
During the fall and winter months, the popular colors leaned toward darker, dramatic eyes and lips. Now, it’s time to lighten those shades especially during the day.
“This spring season is all about having a more natural tone which really enhances your beauty at another level,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “For starters, during the daytime, go ahead and put away that heavy foundation and use a tinted moisturizer instead.”
Skin Care Heaven, based in San Diego, is the leading destination for top skin care products and offers an onsite spa and skin care research center.
Tinted moisturizers have a wonderful way of hydrating the skin with a hint of color.
“Look for a tinted moisturizer like Revision Intellishade because it has an SPF of 45,” she said. “While this product conceals because of the tint, it protects and corrects your skin on an anti-aging level because of enhanced peptides.”
Tinted moisturizers offer a beautiful, glowing bare facial canvas.
While plums and wines were great hues for the lips during the fall and winter months, the warmer, spring trend is inviting pinks and lighter shades.
“During the day, a lip gloss is excellent,” she said. The spokesperson continued, “Our favorite lip gloss is made by Jane Iredale because it adds a gorgeous coat of shine while the mint and ginger ingredients naturally plump your lips.”
The spokesperson pointed out the must have colors this season are tourmaline, cotton candy, pink candy and neutral.
In the evenings, though, a lipstick is normally worn and the color can be a darker.
In fact, during Fashion Week 2013, a few models did have a deeper lip color leaning more toward crimson which added a great “after five” touch.
Makeup professionals are also telling women to use brown mascara during the day and switch to black for the evening time.
As for the upper eye lids, natural and neutral tone colors are the pick this season. “Again, the mineral makeup Jane Iredale line has a favorite called Glo Eye Shadow Trio in Sandstone which offers the perfect blend of color to highlight your eyes naturally.”
This spring season, it’s all about having that subtle natural look with a splash of color to highlight your best feature.
