The best skincare to keep your cool this Independence Day.

When the mercury heads over 90, and you’re not in an air conditioned haven, looking and feeling your best this Independence Day could take a little planning and fine-tuning. At Macias Dermatology, we’re fortunate to have our pick of premium skincare products that leave skin looking fresh, calm and flawless. Lucky for you, we’ve decided to share our top skincare picks to help our Fresno and Central Valley patients beat the heat beautifully this Independence Day. Here’s your 4th of July beauty survival kit.

For a fresh face

IMAGE Ormedic Lip Complex. Think of this as a thirst quencher for your pout. This therapeutic lip treatment enhances the appearance and volume of lip contours with an ultra-hydrating, powerful polypeptide complex that adds up to 40% of moisture volume with repeated use. It’s a favorite amongst our staff to diminish fine lines and keep lips plump and smooth.

ZO Offects® Exfoliating Polish. We all long for the beautiful glow that microdermabrasion gives our skin. To achieve these results at home, we love this polish from ZO Offects®, which instantly reveals smoother skin texture and a healthy glow. Ultra-fine magnesium crystals exfoliate dead skin cells for a cleaner, smoother, and brighter complexion.

ZO C-Bright Vitamin C. To defend the skin against the harsh environmental triggers of the summer sun, we cannot do without this concentrated serum. Daily use will yield noticeably brighter skin while diminishing and preventing skin discolouration.

Regenica Renew SPF. Not only is the texture of this sunscreen light and refreshing, it also has hydrating and collagen-boosting benefits–just what every skincare buff needs!

Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 30 or 50. We love having this powder sunscreen brush handy to increase our sun-protection when paired with the Regenica Renew SPF. The chemical-free, water-resistant formula is a cinch to re-apply, and it’s perfect for protecting often-overlooked spots like the hairline, scalp and ears.

For a smooth and soft body

Holy City Salt Scrub. Chock-full of therapeutic minerals, this salt scrub moisturizes and polishes away dull and dry skin. Plus, it’s the perfect preparation step before the application of a self-tanning bronzer.

EltaMD UV Sport Broad-Spectrum SPF 50. This sunscreen is a must on hot days spent outdoors. It has a sweat-proof feature to help maintain SPF protection during sport and summer activities.
