Summer is finally here – and that means putting your best face forward at all the parties, barbecues, and beachside soirees you’ll be attending!

Unfortunately, if your skin doesn’t look its best, it can be harder to hide those complexion woes during the summer months. Heavy makeup can look harsher under the sun – in some cases, makeup looks obviously out of place, especially when you are poolside or at the beach. After all, you’re not going to be applying foundation and concealer when you’re on a camping trip or swimming in the ocean!

That’s why it’s time to start investing in the best summer skincare treatments. Whether you want to eliminate hyperpigmentation or calm hormonal breakouts, here are the treatments you need to keep your skin happy and healthy:

  • Facials: Your skin is going to be exposed to plenty of sunshine and environmental pollutants – make sure it’s ready for a regular facial routine. From pore-opening oxygen facials to antioxidant-rich vitamin C facials, having a facial routine can add an extra boost to your normal skincare routine.
  • Microdermabrasion: If you suffer from hyperpigmentation, acne scars, enlarged pores, and other complexion issues, microdermabrasion can be an excellent solution for achieving clear, beautiful skin. Keep in mind that if you undergo microdermabrasion treatments, you’ll need to wear plenty of SPF after your treatment (you should wear SPF all the time anyway!).
  • Laser treatments: From laser hair removal to vein removal, laser treatments can clear your skin and help make you feel more confident in your shorts. There are a variety of laser treatments that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, from hyperpigmentation to facial rejuvenation.
