  • iS CLINICAL Guest Blog presents: 4 Beach Bag Must Haves

    Innovative Skincare® has several products for making playing in the sun safe and more comfortable.
    Here are some featured products you will not want to leave out of your Beach Bag this season!
    Extra protection with the inclusion Vitamin C – Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) based products work really well for this time of year because they add additional UV protection along with the benefits of brightening, lightening, and tightening.  iS CLINICAL has several options.  My favorites are iS CLINICAL’s Pro-Heal Serum Advance + because of its level of antioxidants, and Super Serum Advance + because of its inclusion of growth factors.
    Sunscreen – One option is our iS Eclipse SPF 50+ sunscreen.  It uses all-physical sunscreens, so there are no chemicals to worry about.  This sheer sunscreen product has a beautiful matte finish that is perfect for under make-up.
    Penetrating Hydration – iS CLINICAL’s Hydra-Cool Serum is the perfect post-sun treatment.  When the skin is sunburned it is also dehydrated. This low-weight serum calms, soothes, and cools irritated skin and also helps reduce the redness of a sunburn.  It also delivers a high level of antioxidants to the skin to protect against future damage.
    CoolMint Revitalizing Masque It doesn’t get any better than this take-home professional treatment.  If your skin is dying of thirst and damage from the hot summer months, just apply this to your skin and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.  This masque is sure to juice up your skin with hydration while also delivering powerful antioxidants to fend off future damage.  This is great to use during a nice relaxing bath.
