Give Me Some Skin

by Andrew Hoge

Hoping to achieve glowing skin by summer? Indulge in these coveted products that range from soothing balms to marine safe sunscreens, and you will surely kick your daily skincare routine up a notch.

1. Biossance Squalane and Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen

Despite the lack of sunshine during our fair city’s overcast season, applying sunscreen should be a daily habit, especially for those who spend time at sea. This creamy combination of squalene and zinc oxide provides sheer protection against the skin-damaging UV rays that get trapped by clouds or reflected against the water’s surface.

2. Doctor Rogers Restore Healing Balm
Hailed by the likes of goop and Allure for its incredible healing properties, Seattle-based Doctor Rogers’ Restore Healing Balm will quickly become your go-to multipurpose elixir. Made with only three plant-based and biodegradable ingredients, this skincare staple is used to heal post-procedure skin, relieve dry and sensitive skin, and heal chapped lips, dry hands, and cuticles.

3. Bio-Therapeutic Aquafuse FoamPeel

To get the most efficacy from your standard skincare products, it’s important to exfoliate often. Cue the Aquafuse FoamPeel from Seattle-based Bio-Therapeutic, which offers a clever foaming mixture of gentle acids that remove dead skin cells and allow your serums and moisturizers to work harder. Pro tip: be sure to use sunscreen as your final step, as exfoliated skin is more susceptible to sun damage. ($95; biotherapeuticspa.com)

4. Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Invisible Pores Resurfacing Clarity Mask

There is nothing quite like spending an afternoon relaxing on deck, taking in the sound of gentle lapping waves. The only way to enhance this experience is by smearing on Herbivore Botanical’s blue-tinted mask before your head hits the proverbial pillow. Founded in the Pacific Northwest, this sustainably minded company’s bright blue mask has become a go-to for skincare enthusiasts to target enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, and oily or combination skin.

5. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen

While a leisurely swim can be incredibly comforting for the typical aquaphile, keeping a container of reef-safe sunscreen on hand can help maintain the precious marine environment we all share. Try Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion, which offers powerful sheer protection for the face and body that increases with exposure to water and heat. This luxurious elixir is made without ocean-damaging chemicals, such as oxybenzone and octinoxate, so you can feel good while indulging in your next dip. ($50; shiseido.com)
