It’s made with quality ingredients such as ascorbic acid, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and ferulic acid. Together these ingredients provide great results that lighten, tighten, and brighten, and heal your skin. You will notice your skin feels hydrated, not greasy. I often recommend it to my clients when they book an appointment with me—it’s my clients’ favorite serum and essential for those who desire that summer glow!”

CHRISTIAN CAMERON, CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTIST
“My summer skincare must-have is MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream—it’s a need with all my clients! Strobe Cream is an illuminating moisturizer that has pearlescent pigments in it that make the skin look amazing! Although meant to make the skin glow, it’s not greasy at all. You can use it by itself as a regular moisturizer or under makeup to give a naturally healthy glow. The pigments against the sun give the skin that perfect ‘J.Lo glow’ we all know and love!”
MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream, $35 at Maccosmetics.com.
KATELYN MARANDO, HEALTHY LIFESTYLE BLOGGER
“I’m passionate about nutrition, exercise, and safe and non-toxic products for me and my family. When it comes to summer skincare, finding products that are both safe and high performing is my top priority. I like to use lighter products, especially on hot, muggy Midwest days, and added SPF is a huge bonus. I love how hydrating this lip balm makes my lips feel, and it has SPF 30! And if my lips get chapped or dry, this does the trick in healing them quickly.”
Supergoop! PLAY Lip Shield, $19,50 for set of three at Supergoop.com.
VICTORIA T. DAVIS, CEO & FOUNDER OF CLASSYCURLIES AND MAKE IT CLASSY
“My must-have product for this summer is Make It Classy’s Modest Mia Matcha Face Mask. It’s great for those who suffer from acne as it contains high-quality matcha that helps soothe inflamed and irritated skin.”
