Everything I’m Using for Glowy, Hydrated Skin This Summer

Don’t let your complexion take a beating.

As of today, it is *officially* summer, which means I am one very happy Leo. There’s nothing I enjoy more than spending lazy afternoons by the pool or at the beach, soaking in the sunshine and splashing around in the water. Unfortunately, that means my skin takes a beating from salt, chlorine, and of course, the focus of my main love/hate relationship, the sun. Dark spots, uneven texture, dehydration, clogged pores—take your pick of skin ailments, because they’ll all emerge in the months ahead. But like any other season that requires you to give your skin some extra attention (looking at you, winter), there’s a whole bevy of products that cater to your complexion’s warm-weather needs. Take a cue from my skin-care playbook with these 12 products, and enjoy glowing, hydrated skin until fall.

Melanie Simon Skincare Serum C, $200

Yes, this serum is on the pricier side, but fading dark spots is number one on my list of summer skin priorities. Also, it contains an unprecedented 15 percent vitamin C and is a stabilized formula, which means it won’t break down and become ineffective as fast as other products. Since it’s oil-based, you need to let it completely dry before applying any other products. I usually use it on the weekends when I can take my time with my morning routine.
