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.

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.

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.

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.

There is a direct difference between day cream and night cream. While both do moisturize, day creams offer protection against free radicals and night creams provide the skin an opportunity to rejuvenate and repair.
Although night creams is a term regularly used it’s also important to point out that there are evening serums that work their magic, too.
Skin Care Heaven based in the coastal town of Encinitas in San Diego offers both a spa and research center. They’ve handpicked their favorite skin care treatments for nighttime.
“Skin care science has made it possible for night creams to do more than just moisturize,” said Skin Care’s Heaven spokesperson. “Their role is so important in anti-aging and it’s also been reported by professionals that the skin repairs itself faster during the evening than it does during the day. Cellular activity generally occurs between 2 am and 5 am.”
This is why the right night cream or serum is so important.
The top picks for evening treatment are:
“Kinerase Ultimate Night Moisurizer works for eight hours,” said the spokesperson, adding how it minimizes wrinkles and fine lines. “And the kinetin in this product, which is a plant derived molecule that hydrates, embellishes your skin with better moisture, tone and texture.”
Also on the list, the Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum is a combination of potent anti-aging peptides and oils to help renew skin. Users have seen a marked improvement with the following:
• Lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum can be used alone or with a moisturizer.
“Another great pick is RevaleSkin Night Cream with one percent coffee berry extract,” said the spokesperson. She continued, “This special antioxidant extract has been clinically proven to battle the effects of free radical damage which helps create smoother and more gorgeous skin.”
Other ingredient highlights are vitamin E, and grapefruit extract, which gently exfoliates dead skin cells for a more youthful glow.
Last but not least in the lineup is DermaEarth Peptidal Activating Serum. While this product can be used both morning and night, skin care professionals are noticing the great effects it has while one sleeps.
“DermaEarth Peptidal Cell Activating Serum is an advanced anti-aging product with Botulinum toxin-inspired activity; and, it strengthens the skin’s antioxidant shield and helps inhibit glycation to protect your collagen for younger looking skin.”
Users of DermaEarth also notice improvement with less wrinkles and age spots.
A nighttime skin care routine is equally important as a daytime regimen. The right night treatment can reverse the signs if aging and uncover youthful radiance.
