Beat the Summer Skin!

Protect your skin during the summer — don’t get caught in those harmful UV rays unprotected!

Isn’t it crazy how our skincare priorities change through the years? Think about how you cared for your skin at age 10, 20, 30 … and specifically when it comes to the summer sun.

Let’s see here — at age 10, I am pretty sure I was in a one-piece bathing suit with a large hole cut out of the front and back (as close to a two-piece as I was allowed), slathered in SPF 50 under Mom’s watchful eye, with an occasional sunburn due to frequent dips in the ocean or pool.

Age 20, slathering products the consistency of vegetable oil all over my skin, and devouring Cosmo. Trying my best not to burn but to get as brown as a Hershey bar.

Age 30, comparing labels in the drugstore about which sunscreen had the highest SPF, non-comedegenic, paraben free, alcohol free, gluten free … okay, so maybe they don’t make gluten-free sunblock, but I bet it’d sell. 🙂 Wide-brimmed hats. Spray tans. Lecturing 20-somethings about the dangers of sun-worshipping and tanning beds.


Prevent and Protect

Go ahead and invest in a good sunblock. And toss them yearly before they start losing all of their SPF power, leaving you a surprised red lobster! I love the Balshi Sun protection with ULTRA Sunscreen. Balshi Skincare’s anti-aging sunscreen, ULTRA has added ingredients such as Green tea and Vitamin B3 that not only protect the skin but also treat the sun damage we have already caused. So how great is one product that can protect and give added benefits as to moisturize and protect against free radical damage. We all know that SPF is important, even in winter and on cloudy days!



There are some products that I really love to combat the summer sun’s effects. First of all, I can’t speak highly enough for Balshi’s ENERGIZE. Energize is a high potency, oil-free, Vitamin-C serum that works to improve skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation. It contains Acerola Fruit Extract, one of the richest sources of Vitamin C and L-Ascorbic Acid the original source of Vitamin C. These combined ingredients act as an intense collagen booster to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging caused by increased sun exposure over the years.



Another Balshi Skincare product that is a MUST HAVE is NOURISH. Nourish is your essential age-defying moisturizer. This product is so very important for not only hydration using a high concentration of Hyaluronic acid but also includes added ingredients for soothing the skin and giving it back that tall glass of water look. Reduce fine lines and improve your skin’s overall texture and glow with NOURISH. With essential and natural ingredients, this will be your go-to moisturizer for daily replenishment and repair.
