"Summer Love List" From Skincare Pioneer June Jacobs

"Summer Love List" From Skincare Pioneer June Jacobs

I hate the end of summer. So, I’m milking every last minute of August by asking beauty insiders to share their favorite hot-weather products.

Today’s expert:  June Jacobs, Founder of June Jacobs Skincare

June created her botanical-based skincare line more than thirty years ago, long before green and natural and even botanicals were part of our complexion-care lexicon. And she has remained true to that initial vision, as she and her daughter Rochelle have grown their natural-beauty brand into a successful spa mainstay. Today, her products are formulated without parabens and they’re free of preservatives, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrance and sulfates whenever possible. So what, from her line, does she use when it’s hot? Find out below—along with two other summer staples she swears by:

Neroli Hydrating Mist “Whether you need a quick refresh during a long, hot day or a soothing cool down, this mist does the trick, while protecting your skin and strengthening the skin’s barrier. When we’re at the beach, I keep my Neroli Hydrating Mist in a cooler and spritz it on throughout the day.”

CREED Rose Imperiale “I wear this luscious rose scent everyday in the summer; it reminds me of Europe.”

Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque “During the summer I enjoy traveling with my family. When we go on an overnight flight, I apply a layer of our Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque, and no one knows you’re masking—no sheet mask or messy creams to remove. And it smells heavenly!”

Peter Thomas Roth Acne Dots “The perfect treatment for summertime acne. You stick them on any problem spots, and they dramatically reduce the size of any blemish.”

Lip Renewal + SPF 50 “Lips are an area we often sunburn, especially when the sun is at its peak. So, I think it’s critical to moisturize, protect and smooth the lips with added SPF protection.”
