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.”

“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.

While the weather is warming up outdoors, many are throwing on their summer fashion and realizing how they need to remedy their pale skin. For those planning a summer vacation, many dread the thought of slipping into a swimsuit looking so white.
Not to worry. This is where sunless tanning lotion can help.
“Sunless tanning lotion is a great tool we can all use as a springboard into the summer months,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce skin care store based in San Diego. “A quality lotion can look like a real suntan.”
The spokesperson pointed out that for those with sensitive skin issues, it’s best to get a sunless tanning lotion for the body, and then another, for the face. The top pick in this category at Skin Care Heaven is made by Sun Laboratories. Boasting an array of shades, this manufacturer offers Sun Laboratories Strictly Faces Self Tanning Cream and Sun Laboratories Self Tanning Lotion. Their mist self tanning products are also popular choices, too.
“It’s important to note that even with the best products, preparation and application is really important to get that perfect sun-kissed tan,” the spokesperson said.
Below are some easy-to-follow steps to get that look.
• Use a sugar body exfoliator to remove dry skin to prepare the body for sunless tanning
• Use a gentle facial exfoliator to prepare skin for sunless tanning
“When it comes to areas of the body which have wrinkles, such as the knees and elbows, be sure to apply a thin layer of sunless tanning lotion to avoid unnatural darkness in these zones,” said the spokesperson. “The best rule of thumb is to take your time with the application so it is done right.”
Self tanning cream can offer an overall healthy glow even before that first visit to the pool or beach.

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.
