Summer Beauty Tips

Good Housekeeping Magazine Logo

Pale legs? Jiggly arms? Stubborn cellulite? We’ve found the best tips and products to have you ready for warm weather in no time.

You Want: A Face That Glows

Do away with dullness: "Dead skin builds up over the winter if you don't exfoliate," says Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann, M.D. To shed the excess come summer, use a gentle scrub — once or twice a week if you have sensitive skin, daily if it's normal. Try Olay Regenerist Thermal Skin Polisher ($13.49, drugstores) or Fresh Sugar Face Polish ($55,

Consider retinoids: If you're not already using Renova, Tazorac, or another of these radiance-enhancing, collagen-boosting creams, talk to a dermatologist about getting a prescription. "Summer is the best time to begin," says Dr. Baumann. "With more humidity in the air, there's less chance of dryness or irritation."

Protect, protect, protect: The sun is the most powerful skin-aging agent, so wear a broad-spectrum SPF 15 or higher sunscreen like L'Oréal Paris Revitalift UV Daily Moisturizing Cream with Mexoryl SX ($22, drugstores) every day — even if you're just driving to work or running errands. For a bit of extra protection, consider this new option: cleansers with leave-behind sunscreen that clings to your skin when you wash. Sounds strange, but experts say they can help — just don't skip the regular stuff. Try St. Ives Elements Protective Cleanser ($7, drugstores).

Look out for your lips: "They don't tan like the rest of your skin, so they are defenseless against the sun," says New York City dermatologist Dennis Gross, M.D. He recommends daily use of a non-petrolatum-based SPF lip balm: "Anything oil-based attracts the sun and is counterproductive." Try MD Skincare Powerful Sun Protection SPF 25 Lip Balm ($18, Sephora).

You Want: A Younger-Looking Chest

Get in scoop-neck shape: Thin skin makes your chest supersusceptible to sun damage. To refresh and renew it, Dr. Baumann suggests exfoliating three times a week with a face scrub — not a body version. "Your chest is even more sensitive than your face, so you need to be gentle," she says. Prevent new damage by applying your daily facial sunscreen farther south, too.
