REFRESH WITH A SUMMER SPA SESH
Summer is a wonderful time to refresh, reboot and reconnect with yourself and your ever-changing skin. You’ve stocked up on SPF, pulled all your cotton and linen clothes out from the depths of your closet, committed to hosting or attending a handful of friend and family functions and maybe started planning a weekend getaway—it’s a busy season! Between all the commitments and managing everyday life, it’s essential to remember that you (and your skin) also need some rest, downtime, and also a little indulgence! Here’s your head-to-toe skincare guide for a glowing summer complexion.
MAKE ROOM FOR “ME TIME”
Whether you’re carving out time for a bath or inviting a friend over for face masks and a movie, we’ve got some recs for maximizing the moment. We’re talking relaxation, self-connectedness and glowing skin. You know that carefree, healthy-looking post-spa glow? That comes not only from skincare but from the experience of using it as a means to refresh and brighten your day.
REMEMBER, SKINCARE IS PART OF WELLNESS
Your skincare routine can be more than just a regimen—it can be a ritual. In fact, it can be a sensational experience! Make your skincare station a haven and clear time (where you can) to soak up a moment for yourself.
GLOW FOR A SPA DAY
Treat your skin and your senses to skincare that makes you feel pampered and radiant. In case you didn’t know, OleHenriksen Skincare started in a Los Angeles spa. We believe that skincare should be a full-blown experience with touchable textures, scents that enliven your senses and efficacious ingredients that work to deliver a spa-worthy glow.
GET THE OLE GLOW WITH OUR SIGNATURE FACIAL
Okay so this is a summer spa session, right? You’ve likely been out-and-about, changing your environment as you. Going from sweat-inducing outdoor heat to drying indoor air conditioning can be stressful for skin. Exfoliating with Lemonade Scrub, targeting skincare with concentrated treatments and replenishing your skin with hydration are the best ways to keep your skin looking luminous and feeling balanced all summer long.
MOVE ON TO A MASK
We love using Cold Plunge Pore Mask, especially during summer months when you’re more prone to sweating and congested pores. Inspired by the cold plunge stage of the Scandinavian sauna cycle where you open your pores up with a steamy sauna and follow up with a cold plunge that makes your pores contract, this mask feels almost icy on your skin. This unique Kaolin and bentonite clay mask is formulated with lactic acid and salicylic acid. Lactic acidis a hydrating alpha hydroxy acid and salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that is generally beloved by people with acne or oily skin. Both acids help to loosen and lift impurities and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.
NEXT UP: THE HYDRAFACIAL
Now that you’ve sloughed off surface impurities via exfoliation and detoxified your pores, its time to cocoon your skin with hydration and nourishment. Barrier Booster Orange Ferment Essence replenishes skin nourishment with skin-loving orange stem cells and fermented orange peel extract, which are packed with amino acids, peptides, humectants and proteins for antioxidant enrichment. Barrier Booster also instantly plumps skin by doubling hydration with polyglutamic and hyaluronic acids.Want your post-spa glow to last? That’s where the vitamin C comes in. This luscious hydrating milky toner is made with a stable vitamin C derivative (ethyl ascorbic acid) that has superior antioxidant capacity. It helps brighten skin over time (17% brighter) and defends your skin from environmental aggressors like pollution.
FINALLY, STRENGTHEN YOUR SKIN
Finish your facial with intensive hydration that feels lightweight. Strength Trainer Peptide Boost Moisturizer helps strengthen the moisture barrier with skin-integral ingredients like ceramides, peptides, collagen, natural moisturizing factors and essential fatty acids (just to name a few). It also supplements skin with vitamins E, B12, niacinamide and panthenol for healthier-looking skin. This balm-to-gel moisturizer glides effortlessly over skin, feeling indulgent and non-greasy. Strength Trainer’s light and uplifting yuzu-like scent will leave you feeling calm, revitalized and pampered.
TAKE THE OLE GLOW FROM HEAD TO TOE
OLE’S FULL-BODY AT-HOME SPA TREATMENT
The skin on your body needs hydration just as much as the skin on your face—especially in finnicky summer weather. Staying hydrated all summer long doesn’t just mean drinking cucumber water or tequila sunrises (although, yum). Help your skin hold onto hydration with skin-compatible moisturizing ingredients that also support you in strengthening your skin barrier. Your moisture barrier doesn’t just exist on your face—it’s all over you! In fact, your skin is your body’s largest organ, helping protect you from the environment around you. Give it a little thanks for all the hard work and treating yourself to a spa-worthy exfoliating and replenishing body treatment.
FRESH FROM THE BATHS
Ever wish you could keep that shower-fresh radiance going for hours after bath time? You know the look: glowing, well-hydrated and supple skin that’s amplified by a relaxed aura. Your post-shower or bath ritual can help you extend and maintain that covetable healthy-looking glow. It all starts with smoothing the way to hydration. Now make that double hydration. New BeamCream Smoothing Body Moisturizer instantly delivers 2.6x hydration while smoothing and brightening skin. Within its airy, whipped meringue-like formula, BeamCream is packed with hard-working AHAs (glycolic and lactic acids), essential fatty acids, caffeine and rich oils and butters. It helps loosen and lift dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to improve texture and visibly reduce dark spots over time.
WRAP UP WITH SCANDINAVIAN BOTANICALS KNOWN FOR SKINCARE BENEFITS
Finish your summer spa day with New Firmly Yours Toning Dry Body Oil. This deliciously silky body oil is packed with peptides and a blend of antioxidant-rich Scandinavian botanical oils extracted from cloudberry, elderberry and black currant. Firmly Yoursis like a luxe spa body wrap treatment in a bottle, helping to lock in hydration, boost elasticity and visibly even skin tone. Its lightweight glide-on-easy texture is great for self-massage and absorbs quickly into the skin so you can reap the rewards of a body wrap without having to sit around and wait for the treatment to soak in. Firmly Yours’ bright, mood-elevating citrus scent helps you finish your at-home summer spa session on a high note.
