Summer is in full swing which means you’re going to want to protect your skin! Our skin care products are designed to shield your skin against the sun and environmental aggressors for a healthy-looking glow. We thought we’d share 5 skin care tips to shield and nourish your skin while beating the summer heat!

1. Sun Block

Sun protection is a must have while exploring the outdoors. Try using a moisturizer on your face and neck that is formulated with SPF. The e.l.f. SPF 50 Skin Shielding Moisturizer provides long lasting protection against the sun while simultaneously nourishing and moisturizing your skin.

2. Cleansing

After a long day in the sun, we recommend following a revitalizing skin cleansing routine. Before bed, wipe away makeup with a soft cotton ball or cleansing cloths. Then, using the e.l.f. Dual Defense Cleansing Facial Brush gently lather and cleanse the face. The e.l.f. Hydrating Water Cleansing Cloths can easily be carried in your purse and are a great way to cleanse and hydrate your skin after a beach day!


3. Exfoliation

While cleansing the skin is an important component to your daily skincare regimen, exfoliating is a great way to purify your skin. Use a gentle scrub to exfoliate your skin after you washed your face and neck. The e.l.f. Exfoliating Scrub gently polishes away dead skin cells for healthy looking skin. Or, try the e.l.f.’s Gentle Peeling Exfoliant cleanser that gently removes dead skin for a naturally radiant glow.

4. Moisturizing

Once you have thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated your face, it is time to moisturize! Use the e.l.f. Moisturizing Sleeping Mask to help keep your skin nourished and moisturized overnight for refreshed skin. For day time use, try using e.l.f.’s Daily Hydration Moisturizer SPF 15 that locks in moisture for nourished skin.

5. Protect and Heal

Before stepping out in the sun, apply the e.l.f.’s Vitamin C Pollution Prevention Serum to get an added layer of protection. The e.l.f. Massaging Over Night Recovery Cream works wonders! Gently massage the skin to diminish the effects of day time exposure to environmental pollutants. Packed with all kinds of nutrients, the rollerball applicator massages the skin to allow for more absorption of moisture overnight.
