Summer Skincare Essentials at Avalon Mall

Summer is here, and with it comes bright and sunny days, beach outings, and outdoor adventures. But as the temperature rises, so does the need to revamp your skincare routine. The heat, humidity, and increased exposure to UV rays can be damaging to your skin if not properly addressed. Luckily, Avalon Mall is your one-stop destination for all your summer skincare needs. From lightweight moisturizers and sunscreens to soothing after-sun treatments, our stores have everything you need to keep your skin radiant.

Protective Sunscreens

In the summer, it’s crucial to shield all of your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but using the right product on your face is essential. The skin on your face is much more delicate, and using a heavy body sunscreen can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and ineffective protection. Facial sunscreens are designed to be gentle, lighter, and easily absorbed.

At Sephora, check out their showcase of next-level sunscreens that are designed to keep your skin protected this summer. Explore formulas designed for sensitive skin in convenient on-the-go packaging. Shop fan-favourite brands like Sol de Janeiro, First Aid Beauty, Sephora Collection, and so many more! Their skincare team are sure to match you with the best sunscreen for your skin type.

At Lawton’s, check out the new SPF collection from la Roche Posay for high-quality UVB and UVA protection!

It’s formulated especially for kids with an easy to apply formula for families on the move. Visit them today for all your sun-protection needs!

Repair Your Skin with Vitamin C

In Newfoundland, everyone wants to take advantage of sunny days ahead and spend their time enjoying the rays outside. Tanning and sunburns however can cause significant damage to your skin, such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sunspots. A powerful ally in combating these effects is vitamin c. While it doesn’t replace sunscreen, it works in harmony with sun protection to minimize sunburn, sunspots, and other forms of damage.

Visit The Body Shop and explore their Vitamin C skincare line with products designed to bring out your inner-glow. Made with camu camu berries, these products contain a natural antioxidant that gives skin a natural and radiant glow. They have a full range of vitamin c infused tonics, masks, moisturizers, serums, and more formulated to minimize the appearance of sun damage.

At Sephora, check out these products from viral brands like Drunk Elephant and Dr Dennis Gross that are packed with vitamin c for the summer! Pick up yours today for radiant skin all summer long.

Sooth with Aloe Vera

Sunny days and the risk of sunburn go hand in hand. Aloe Vera is a natural ingredient that works great for soothing sunburns or general irritation.

Incorporate aloe vera into your skincare routine this summer with Grease Lightning, a gentle and refreshing cleanser from Lush. The organic aloe works to calm irritated skin while provided much needed relief for burnt summer skin. At The Body Shop, there is an aloe vera line to incorporate into your daily skincare routine. With moisturizers for daily use or calming face masks for self-care nights in, they’ve got you covered.

Healthy Haircare Products

Did you know that your hair can also be damaged by the sun? Hair is prone to breakage in the summer months from sun damage and you’re also at risk of your scalp becoming burned. During the summer, it’s incredibly important to incorporate moisturizing products to help prevent hair from becoming frizzy and brittle from sun damage.

Keep your hair protected using hydrating products that feature UV protection! At Sephora, the Bb. Hairdresser’s invisible oil smooths humidity-prone frizz while nourishing dry summer hair. At Glamour Secrets, find the milkshake leave-in conditioners and milk spray that are perfect for using while rocking your slick-back bun on wash day. The Redken One United treatment spray, also from Glamour Secrets, is perfect for repairing hair after a long day on the beach. Pick up one of these sun-protecting products and have your dream hair this summer!

Moisturized Summer Skin

During the summer months, a lightweight moisturizer is essential to maintain healthy skin without the heavy feeling a traditional cold cream might provide. High temperatures and increased humidity can lead to excess oil production and sweat, making thick moisturizers uncomfortable and prone to clogging pores.

A lightweight formula such as the Fresh Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Lightweight Moisturizer, the Superfood Air Whipped moisture cream from Youth of the People, or the Base Face Milk Essence from Ilia, all found at Sephora, help ensure adequate hydration, helping to balance the skin’s moisture levels while allowing it to breathe in hot weather.

Make Avalon Mall your go-to destination for all your summer skincare needs and enjoy radiant, healthy skin all season long!
