Has your skin been taking a beating from the summer sun? With July being National UV Month, there is no better time to keep skin care on the top of your summer to-do list. Shielding your skin with clothing and shade is one way to avoid the ravages of the sun, but using skin care products that offer sun protection and healing properties can revitalize your skin and keep it healthy all summer long. Here are some of our top picks for summer skin care products that protect and heal.
Bethesda Sunscreen Soap
Even though you know slathering on sunscreen is essential for daily sun protection, how often do you forget to apply it? Bethesda Skincare, a company of all-natural products, has just the product
to make sure you never leave home without SPF protection. Bethesda Sunscreen Soap, the world’s first all-natural sunscreen body bar, can be used in the shower or bath, leaving a minimum of
SPF 10 on your skin. This neutrally-scented body bar also delivers over 50 vitamins, minerals and amino acids that promote healthy skin and may even alleviate skin problems. Though the bar does
offer sun protection, Bethesda Sunscreen Soap should be used in conjunction with a regular sunscreen lotion or spray.
Available at BethesdaSkincare.com.
Price: $8 per 4.5-ounce bar
Cor Silver Soap
The award-winning Cor Silver Soap best known for its gentle cleansing and rejuvenating skin properties can also protect your skin from the sun. This soap not only replenishes collagen to minimize
the appearance of wrinkles, it also offers an added dose of SPF 15 sun protection after each use. Healthy skin is much more resilient against the elements of summer and using Cor Silver Soap before
applying sunscreen can act as a double defense against the penetrating rays of the sun.
Available at CorSilver.com.
Price: $125 per 4-ounce bar

Perlabella PureDose Pearls
Direct from Italy, Perlabella PureDose Pearls deliver four different highly concentrated anti-aging serums to fight wrinkles and repair damaged skin. The Retinol Face formula works beneath the

radicals. The Perlabella Vitamin C Face serum protects skin against free radicals and ultraviolet light, and the Retinol Eye serum protects the thin, sensitive skin around the eyes, minimizing the
appearance and formation of wrinkles. Each single use of any four of the serums is encapsulated in a PureDose Pearl, which ensures purity of the ingredients, protects the products from contaminants
and makes them easy to use.
