MOST OF US FEEL our most beautiful mid-summer, perhaps after a blissful vacation. Our skin has taken on some sun, we’ve finally had a good night’s rest and hopefully, we’ve taken more than one dip in the sea — or at least the pool.
On the other hand, summer can also serve up some pretty major skincare issues. The dreaded combination of sweat, heat and sun exposure can wreak havoc on our skin — from sun spots to breakouts — and the damage usually hits just about now, at the end of summer.
The post-summer skincare blues are a real thing, whether we’re breaking out or wrinkling up, getting blotchy or turning into an oil slick. Sadly, too much sun and sweat can lead to all of the above at once if we’re not cautious.
One of the most interesting things to learn about dehydrated, blotchy or acneic summer skin is that all these conditions are best served by the same things: deep hydration and accelerated skin cell turnover. To restore skin from summer’s lackluster effects, we commit to a brightening skincare routine with the most potent, clean ingredients we can get our hands on, including Omorovicza’s vitamin c serum, facial polish and multi-purpose glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acid treatment.
These three power-packed products make for the ultimate post-summer routine from luxe clean skincare brand, Omorovicza. The Hungarian brand, with a Nobel Prize-winning lab and a well-deserved cult following, harnesses the healing effects of Hungary’s mineral-rich thermal waters through a patented ingredient called the Healing ConcentrateTM. All of their high-performance products have received the coveted Sephora Clean seal of approval because they are sulfate, paraben, and silicone-free and use naturally derived alternatives in lieu of commonly used synthetics.
Here’s the routine you need if, like most of us, your skin is craving a little extra TLC to recover from summer’s devitalizing effects…
Omorovicza’s Brightening Trio
REFINING FACIAL POLISHER | There’s truly nothing that will transform skin and accelerate cell turnover like regular exfoliation with a polish like this one. The best facial polishes exfoliate with multiple ingredients; Omorovicza’s combination of Hungarian Moor Mud, lava stone, fruit acids and lactobionic acid are what make this product effective after just one use. Add to that the cell-detoxifying power of marine micro-algae and it’s no wonder this polisher receives 5 stars from almost all Sephora users! Buff the polisher gently over your skin like you would a traditional scrub, but then leave the product on for two minutes before rinsing clean to get the results you might expect from a gentle peel!

DAILY VITAMIN C | Vitamin C is one of the most powerful skincare ingredients, known to brighten skin and is used by almost every facialist we know for maximum results. This potent serum delivers a power-packed dose of vitamin C to brighten and protect—reviving dull, lifeless skin for an even, luminous complexion. It’s also loaded with hyaluronic acid for major moisturizing action. Clinical reports on the product show that most women notice more hydrated and smoothed skin instantly with significant brightness and firmness noticed after one month. TRY ME
ACID FIX | Breakout sufferers, take note! This multi-purpose glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acid treatment exfoliates, peels, resurfaces, brightens, and visibly plumps the skin. Combining a potent blend of AHA and BHA acids, Acid Fix helps to reverse the damage caused by sunlight and to clear acne and acne scarring. Devotees of this product note how quickly it works, experiencing results in as quickly as one week. From fine lines to dark spots to hormonal acne breakouts, Acid Fix is a seriously effective solution, and is safe for most skin types. As with all active skincare products, be sure to do a patch test first if you know your skin is especially sensitive. TRY ME
