The Best Summer Skincare Routine

May is Melanoma Awareness Month, so at Tips, we wanted to share our step-by-step guide on achieving a safe summer glow with you. This is your reminder to wear your SPF daily, even when it’s cloudy and when you’re indoors. The minimum we recommend is SPF 30 to help protect your skin, so be sure to add it to your morning routine. And remember to reapply every two hours when outside or sooner when swimming or sweating.


We want to help you achieve your summer glow, so we’ve developed a step-by-step routine with everything you read here available online or at our salons.

Step 1 - Cleansing

Start with a double cleanse using our Dermalogica Pre Cleanse. It’s the perfect oil cleanser to use during your nighttime routine to remove oil build-up, dirt, SPF, makeup and pollution from the skin. This oil skin cleanser will help lock that moisture and nourish your skin. Add a small drop to the tips of your fingers and massage the skin cleaner onto your dry skin in a circular motion, add water to emulsify and rinse.




Step 1 Part 2

Double cleanse with the Clinical Cleansing Complex. We love this skin cleanser because it’s great for all skin types. This cleanser will give you a deep clean with mild exfoliation while being oh-so gentle for your skin.




Step 2 - Exfoliating

Use the Daily Microfoliant as a gentle but effective exfoliant. This exfoliant will leave your skin brighter and softer while preparing your skin for improved absorption when applying your serums and moisturizers. What we love most is this exfoliant is gentle around the eyes and can be used daily.






We also love the Rapid Reveal Peel as an alternative. It’s an at-home peel system with no downtime. It will help bring out new and firmer skin while leaving your skin feeling smooth and bright. As a bonus, this at-home peel will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend speaking with one of our specialists before using it with other exfoliating products.



Step 3 - Serums

Super Serum Advance+ is to be used during your morning skincare routine. It’s a powerful vitamin C serum that targets wrinkles and dark spots while brightening your skin and helps protect against damaging sun rays.


During your nighttime skincare routine, we recommend Active Serum. It works wonders for breakouts and overall congestion of your skin. It will treat and soften any scarring while also actively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will thank you for being so smooth and soft with visibly smaller pores. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend speaking with a skin therapist before using it.




Step 4 - Eye Cream

It’s essential to give the eyes some attention too! At Tips, we are obsessed with the Youth Eye Complex. This incredible eye cream will smooth and illuminate your eyes while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This eye cream can be used in both your morning and nighttime skincare routine.





Step 5 - Moisturizer

We love a lightweight and intensely hydrating skin moisturizer. It’s why we chose the Reparative Moisture Emulsion. Makeup artists are obsessed with this moisturizer because of its reparative moisture emulsion, making it a go-to product when prepping the skin. This skin moisturizer has powerful antioxidants and peptides to help protect the skin against aging while simultaneously reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin's best friend will leave it looking and feeling dewy, which is something we can get behind.




We also love Dynamic Skin Recovery because it’s a great 2-in-1 moisturizer and SPF combination. It’s medium weight and will absorb into your skin quickly. This SPF moisturizer will improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.



Step 6 - SPF

Eclipse SPF50 will absorb quickly and leave a weightless finish. This SPF will protect your skin from sun damage while preventing your skin from aging and skin cancer. It’s a great option to use every day with its water-resistant formula, so be sure to pack this one in your beach bag. Your skin will never go thirsty with extra hydration from this SPF.


At Tips Nail Bar + Beauty, we offer several skincare services that will complement your day and nighttime skincare routines. We offer customized skin care treatments that will be designed specifically for you to address any needs or concerns. We recommend speaking to a skin therapist first so they can do a thorough assessment of your current routine and then make any necessary adjustments. Creating a personalized experience and skincare routine is important since not everyone’s skin is the same.
