Combatting Summer Skin Problems: Our Favorite Products

Summer is a great time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine in Chicago, but it can also take a toll on your skin. Heat, humidity, and sun exposure can cause a variety of skin problems, including melasma, sunburn, and acne breakouts. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to prevent and treat these issues. Here is a list of common summer skin problems and our favorite products for combatting them.


Melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark, patchy areas on the face. It can be triggered by hormonal changes, pregnancy, and sun exposure. To prevent and treat melasma, we recommend using products that contain ingredients such as vitamin C, niacinamide, and hydroquinone. Some of our favorite products for melasma include SkinBetter Even Tone Correcting Serum and SkinMD Fade Cream (available in office).


Sunburn is a painful and uncomfortable skin condition that occurs when the skin is overexposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays. It can cause redness, inflammation, and even blisters in severe cases. To prevent sunburn, we recommend using broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Our favorite products for sunburn prevention include SkinBetter Even Tone Correcting Serum and SkinBetter Sunbetter TONE SMART SPF 75 Sunscreen Lotion

Acne breakouts


Summer can be a challenging time for those with acne-prone skin. Heat, humidity, and sweat can clog pores and cause breakouts. To combat acne breakouts, we recommend the SkinBetter Oxygen Infusion Wash. This product features slow-releasing alpha hydroxy acids that instantly purify and refresh skin.
