Every summer brings a lifestyle shift with more time spent outdoors, skin exposed to full sunlight, and warm temperatures affecting our physiology. Dr. Laszlo’s science-backed formulations were rooted not only in skin's unique needs, but each client’s personal lifestyle—including refreshing your ritual with the changing of seasons.
This idea of refreshing your ritual to suit skin’s evolving needs holds true. In summer, skin may experience increased oil production, clogged pores, breakouts, and the risk of UV damage. But all it takes is an expertly-curated ritual refresh to adapt to these changes and keep skin looking and feeling radiant all season long.
Step 1: Cleanse to Detoxify
We recommend: Detox Cleansing Duo
Why it’s perfect for summer: Summer heat increases oil production in skin, leading to clogged pores and blemishes. Our two-step Detox Cleansing Duo deeply cleanses and gently exfoliates. In addition to removing dirt and oil, double cleansing helps to thoroughly wash away sunscreen. This is essential, as leaving sunscreen on your face overnight can lead to clogged pores.
Result: Skin is left purified and refreshed, smooth and soft.
Step 2: Eye Care to Refresh
We recommend: Multi-Task Serum Eye Mask
Why it’s perfect for summer: With vacations and long weekends away, bring your ritual on the go. Our Multi-Task Serum Eye Masks are a perfectly packable, 10-minute solution to instantly hydrate, nourish, and brighten the eye area. Not only that, the non-slip hydrogel formula allows you to multitask while masking, so you can make the most of every summer moment.
Result: Immediately after use, eyes appear brighter, refreshed, and more awake.
Step 3: Tone to Reduce Shine
We recommend: Light Controlling Toner
Why it’s perfect for summer: Between heat, humidity, and sweat, skin can become extra oily and prone to shine and breakouts. Our Light Controlling Toner helps clarify skin, sweeping away surface oils and lightly exfoliating while ensuring skin maintains balanced hydration.
Result: Skin is left with matte-finish moisture—refreshed, perfectly conditioned, and prepared for the rest of your ritual.
Step 4: Moisturize in the Morning to Balance Hydration
We recommend: Phelityl Emulsion
Why it’s perfect for summer: Increased oil production makes skin feel more moisturized. However, it’s essential to hydrate even oil-prone skin with a lightweight moisturizer. This helps skin feel supported and offset the over-production of oils. Our Phelityl Emulsion is a quick-absorbing, almost-fluid moisturizer that effortlessly delivers nourishment while building up barrier protection.
Results: Skin is left hydrated with a healthy look, supple feel, and refreshed tone and glow.
Step 5: Moisturize at Night to Replenish Hydration
We recommend: Mattifying Gel Moisturizer
Why it’s perfect for summer: Rising temperatures and humidity call for a lightweight, easy-to-absorb nighttime moisturizer. Our long-lasting Mattifying Gel Moisturizer is light to the touch while delivering all-night moisture and a smooth, satin finish.
Results: Skin is supported with long-term hydration while helping to smooth the complexion.
Step 6: Protect with SPF
We recommend: Beyond SPF UV Defense Masque SPF 30
Why it’s perfect for summer: Excessive exposure to UV & blue light can cause oxidative stress, which contributes to premature lines & wrinkles. Our UV Defense Masque offers broad-spectrum, mineral-based protection. As a physical sunscreen, it shields skin from harmful rays with SPF 30, blocking out nearly 97% of UVB radiation.
Results: Skin is protected and hydrated with improved overall wellness and a healthy-looking glow.
Step 7: Finish for a Sheer, Natural Look
We recommend: Shake-It Tinted Skin Treatment
Why it’s perfect for summer: Your last step to skincare, our Shake-It Tinted Skin Treatment works to refine pores, reduce surface oils, and even skin tone. Each of these skin-friendly benefits are particularly valuable in summer. And because this treatment is lightly tinted for a sheer, matte finish, Shake-It just might give you the confidence to embrace skin’s natural, makeup-free radiance this summer.
Results: Skin is left shine-free, even-toned, and supported for a natural look and feeling of skin confidence.
