Mario Monthly Edit: July Skin Care

For glowy, dewy, and bright skin all summer long, try this.

1. USE A GEL CLEANSER.

Enzyme Cleansing Gel is our most universal (and beloved!) face wash to date: it’s a light, oil-free gel base infused with Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts to help rejuvenate skin. A dime-sized squeeze of this will do the trick: it’s the perfect morning pick-me-up and end-of-day deep clean that leaves skin feeling fresh-faced and clean.

If you have very oily skin, try Botanical Facial Gel for a deeper clean.

2. ALWAYS FOLLOW WITH A TONER.

Toning post-cleanse helps ensure every speck of makeup, oil, sweat, and grime is removed from your face. You get a thorough clean (which is crucial), but even more importantly, Mario Badescu toners are formulated to re-balance your skin and deliver complexion-boosting benefits weightlessly.

Glycolic Acid Toner is a staple for soothing, resurfacing benefits. Formulated with Glycolic Acid to help even out skin tone, Grapefruit Extract to rejuvenate, and Aloe Vera for a soothing hydration, this is a must for a touch of daily exfoliation. Brighter skin (and days) lie ahead with this in your routine.

If you have sensitive skin and want a brightening boost, try Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion. This is mild formulation infused with Grapefruit and Lemon Extracts to give skin that rejuvenating boost—plus a host of replenishing ingredients like Bladderwrack (Seaweed) Extract, Aloe Vera, and Glycerin.

3. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE.

Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream is the perfect warm-weather eye cream. It’s a silky balm that glides beautifully under and around the eye area, packed with skin-loving ingredients (like Hyaluronic Acid, Safflower Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin E, Ceramide Glycolipids, Eyebright Extract).

If your skin is on the oily side, try Ceramide Eye Gel instead. It’s an ultra-light, oil-free eye gel that applies with bounce and seamlessness. Store it in the fridge and make it an extra-cooling treat that helps de-puff tired eyes.

4. STAY HYDRATED.

Hyaluronic Dew Cream is just what summer skin—no matter your skin type—craves. This is a light gel-cream hybrid that delivers all the dewiness with none of the heaviness. Layer as much as you need (and over a serum if you desire).

If you’re out and about, do layer this with your favorite sunscreen or opt for a face moisturizer with SPF.

#MBSkinTip: Get a glow-up just by misting with any Mario Badescu Facial Spray before you apply Hyaluronic Dew Cream. Doing so enables the Sodium Hyaluronate complex (in the moisturizer) to draw even more moisture into the skin for an added boost of hydration.

5. TREAT YOURSELF.

Every other night, apply a few drops of Vitamin C Serum before you reach for Hyaluronic Dew Cream. Glowy is the goal, of course, but you also want to care for your skin, too—which means using this antioxidant-enriched serum to help fight against skin-aging free radicals from sun damage.

I hold these truths to be self-evident, that skin care is paramount, green tea is everything, and the Internet rules all (typical Gen-Y philosophy; if it wasn't 'grammed, it never happened).
