How to Get “Event Ready” Skin

It's Event Season!

Spring and Summer bring so many exciting and life changing events: graduation, weddings, vacations, reunions, girls trips, and family get togethers.  Many people want their skin to look better for these events, but don't know where to start; fear not, we can help!

 Whether you are looking for a brighter, and more even complexion, want to clear up acne prone skin (we hear this from adult and teens alike), improve pigmentary disorders such as melasma or age spots, or just get back that healthy vibrant skin, that we used to have before all of the sun damage - at Save the Wave Skincare, we have got you covered!

Our first recommendation is to give yourself enough time to get the results you are looking for. Great skin does not happen overnight. Many skin concerns can take weeks to months to see the desired improvement. We can maintain healthy and beautiful skin for a lifetime with just a few simple steps.

All great skincare routines start with a great sunscreen. Look for a product that has at least an SPF 30.  All of our facial sunscreens have at least an SPF of 30, and are mineral based (zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide) - that means no chemical sunscreens which is better for you and the environment.  All of our tinted sunscreens also have iron oxide which provides the subtle tint but most importantly, is also protective against visible light  (VL), reducing VL transmission by 93-98%.  Because VL has biologic effects on the skin, including pigment darkening, redness, and oxidative stress, daily protection from visible light is key to healthy skin.  Photo-protection against visible light is particularly important for our customers who have skin of color, melasma, or any pigmentary concerns as VL can contribute to unwanted skin pigmentation. 

Next, we all can benefit from a topical antioxidant to our skin.  As noted above, ultraviolet light, visible light, and environmental pollutants, can significantly stress our skin, causing premature aging and unwanted pigmentary changes. The addition of our daily antioxidant 20% Topical Vitamin C with Vitamins B, E & Ferulic Acid is a must for your morning routine for the healthiest and most beautiful skin. 

Ok, we know how to protect our skin from daily sun and VL damage. Now what? 

Whatever your skin concern, Save the Wave Skincare has many products just for you. We will never try to sell you anything more than you need for your particular concerns.  Our philosophy has always been “simplified skin care” - all that you need and nothing that you don’t. 

If acne is a concern, whether you are a teen or a mature adult, we have our simple ClariFx Acne Regimen - effective yet gentle acne treatment for all skin types.  Our ClariFx products are designed to compliment one another, but can be used individually depending on your personal needs. 

Are pigment issues hounding you? Our Light & Bright Regimen includes a sunscreen of choice, our customer favorite topical 20% Vitamin C, and our Hydrating Retinol and Triple Action Whitening Serum.  Each product targets the specific causes of unwanted pigment to give you the most even and bright complexion.

Aging of the skin - fine lines, wrinkles, and textural changes.  We all can relate to that, especially those of us who may have had a bit too much fun in the sun (us included!). no worries - its never too late to have healthy great looking skin! Our Anti Aging Regimen includes (you guessed it) our customer favorite sunscreens and 20% Topical Vitamin C and our Hydrating Retinol, to boost collagen and improve the texture, tone and pigmentary changes of the skin.

Hey guys - we are talking to you too! Healthy and bright skin is not just for ladies. 

Our products are for every body and every skin type!  We have curated regimens just for you and your skin care needs. Check out our Men’s Regimen and Bearded Men’s Regimen.

And for the kiddos, we cannot stress enough the importance of at least daily photo protection for that young and delicate skin.  So much of our accumulated UV and VL exposure comes when we are young and probable not thinking too much about protection. It's up to us as parents, mentors and guardians to teach them the basics of healthy skin and it starts with daily sunscreen use to exposed areas.  Our powerful and elegant sunscreens feel light and smooth and non-greasy - even for the pickiest of users. Depending on your children's specific concern (acne, redness, sensitive skin, eczema), we can recommend products as needed.

At Save the Wave Skincare, we are dedicated to healthy and beautiful skin in every body and every skin type. We are here to answer your questions and comments and would love to hear from you. All of our products are always cruelty free and made in the USA.

Now get that camera ready!
