Summer skin prep

Blue Mercury shares must-have products for the hot months ahead.

Spring has sprung and vacay season will be here before you can say “another margarita, please.”  We chatted with the team from Blue Mercury about their favorite skincare and makeup products to help you look your freshest all season long.

What products are customers asking about right now? 

Definitely self-tanners and bronzers.  They want the sun-kissed look without baking in the sun or using a tanning bed. And of course, protecting the skin with a high-quality SPF is a must when you are outside.

BM loves:

TanTowels have a cult following. They’re virtually goof-proof to apply and give great coverage.

Bobbi Brown Matte Bronzer is a best seller and stays all day.

SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense 50  No dreaded white cast or greasy feel with this SPF, plus it’s perfect to wear under makeup.

Shisheido Ultimate Sun Protection Spray 50  So easy to spray away at the beach or pool.

What are some potential skin issues during the summer months?

Dry winter skin can become oily in the summer, so it’s important to exfoliate regularly to rid the pores of excess oil and residue and to enable the rest of your skincare products to do their job. Age spots can be more noticeable, so a good vitamin C / antioxidant serum is also crucial.

BM loves:

m-61 Vitablast C Serum – This vegan serum by Blue Mercury Founder, Marla Malcom Beck, is chock-full of vitamins C and E and gallic acid with zero parabens and synthetic fragrances.

Natura Bisse Glyco Extreme Peel – Pricey, but the results are totally worth it. The peel lifts dead skin cells and instantly firms and rejuvenates.
