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 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.
