Beauty Expert Jill Caruso Shares Her Favorite Products & Secrets for Summer Beauty

Memorial Day is creeping up on us, and while most everyone is ready to embrace the warm weather (AKA hit the beaches and pools), it’s important to remember that sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin, with both short-term and long-term results. It’s important to be aware and proactive regarding sun exposure. The biggest problem is that skin cancer can show up at any time – and some have seen it occur 25 years later! Between the risk of skin cancer and the damage to the skin causing leather-like skin and hyperpigmentation related to sun exposure, it’s important that you use sunscreens daily– and reapply often.

Guest expert, Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Jill Caruso shares her top five tips to keep you looking your best in the summer and beyond, along with her favorite products* that will help keep your skin in top condition! *Jill is in no way affiliated or compensated by these brands

1. Use SPF every day
There is good reason you get this advice over and over again. This is non-negotiable for healthy skin. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays is mandatory for skin health and anti-aging.

Jill’s Picks:
* EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44


* SkinMedica Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35

2. Don’t forget your lips!
This delicate area is often forgotten, but the lips require sun protection and hydration. Lips are just as susceptible to sun damage as the rest of the face. Lips tend to get dried out so when not in the sun make sure to hydrate them

Jill’s Picks:


* SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator


* Colorscience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35


3. Botox helps prevent wrinkles… and sweat!
By temporarily paralyzing muscles, you are able to prevent future wrinkles. This is especially important around the “crow’s feet” area in the summer, when we tend to squint more in the sun. Botox is also used for hyperhidrosis, so you can prevent excess sweat on the forehead, as well as and sweaty armpits!

4. Reapply SPF without messing your makeup!
Carry a brush-on mineral SPF, which is easy to use and super convenient.

Jill’s Picks:


* Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50

* Avène High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50


5. Use nightly fading cream
Dark spots tend to appear more in the summer when the skin is being constantly exposed to the sun.

Jill’s Picks:
* Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector



* SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum
