Easy Summer Skincare Regimen

Our recommendation for an easy Summer Skincare Regimen

When it's hot outside nobody really wants to slather a heavy cream on their skin, right?  Like our wardrobes, a summer skincare routine should be lighter.

Please don't stop moisturizing just because temperatures are rising though. Consider a moisturizing combo to simplify your Summer regimen. A lightweight Moisturizer/Sunscreen will help keep your skin protected and hydrated without weighing heavy on your beautiful skin. 

 Easy 3 step Daytime Summer Skin Care Regimen 

1. Cleanse - No need for a cream type cleanser in the Summer. Opt for a gel or foam type instead.

2. Day Serum with Vitamin C - Antioxidants are recommended to provide extra protection against the strong summer sun and to protect against free radical damage. Look for a serum that contains high levels of Vitamin C.

3. Moisturizer/SPF Combo - SPF50 is ideal and using a combination moisturizer and SPF keeps your routine simple.

 Easy Summer Skin Care Nighttime Routine

 1. Cleanse - Most important time to cleanse your skin is at night. I can't stress enough how important it is to cleanse your skin every single night! Going to bed with makeup and debris from the day results in congested skin, blackheads, and causes your skin to look dull and yes, over time, ages you. 

More reasons to cleanse every night:

  • Regular cleansing is essential to keeping your skin looking radiant and healthy.
  • Cleansing helps anti-aging products and treatments work properly.
  • Cleansing helps maintain proper pore size.
  • Cleansing encourages proper skin hydration and prevents the production of excess oils resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, and acne.

2. Night Serum with Retinol - while you're sleeping let retinol work its magic to increase cell turnover, build collagen, improve discoloration, address fine lines and resurface skin by replenishing Vitamin A.

3. Night CreamDuring the warmer months, a lightweight cream or face oil is ideal. Look for creams that are antioxidant-rich and hydrate without weighing heavy on your skin.

4. Eye Cream or Gel - repair, nourish, and protect the delicate skin surrounding the eyes. Be sure to wear sunglasses all-day-long to keep the squint lines around your eyes to a minimum.

 Give yourself bonus points if you...Exfoliate!  While it's not necessary to exfoliate on a daily basis (I opt for every other day), a great peel/polish is absolutely a must during the summer. The heat causes us to produce more oils. Sweat and debris from the day must come off! Banish blackheads and whisk-away whiteheads with a gentle yet effective exfoliant and keep your pores healthy and happy-looking.

Bonus tip! 

Keep your toner, moisturizers, and eye gels in the refrigerator this time of year. A chilled moisturizer or eye gel will calm and soothe hot, tired, sensitive skin and keep you feeling cool as the weather warms up.

Ingredients to look for in your summer skincare -

Peptides - are short chains of amino acids that act as building blocks of proteins your skin needs! Proteins such as collagen, elastin and keratin are the foundations of your skin and are responsible for skins texture, strength, and resilience.

Without peptides our skin is less resilient and can lose firmness, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and saggy looking skin.

Botanical Hyaluronic Acid - Our bodies produce Hyaluronic Acid naturally but our ability to produce HA declines with age, leading to dryness and fine lines.  

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant, which means it grabs moisture from the air and holds it in the epidermis, keeping the skin plump, firm, and glowing. 

Antioxidants such a Vitamin C

Ingredients to avoid in your summer skincare -

DMDM Hydantoin & Urea (Imidazolidinyl)- Preservatives that often release formaldehyde which may cause joint pain, skin allergies, headaches, and loss of sleep.

Phthalates - Chemicals used to increase flexibility and strength of plastics, and not often listed among the ingredients on products. 

Usually found in cosmetics such as fragrance oils and listed under the term “fragrance"

Mineral Oil - A petroleum by-product that coats the skin like plastic, clogging its pores. It's harmful because it interferes with the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins, therefore increasing the likelihood of acne and other disorders. 

Usually found in creams, lotions, ointments, and cosmetics.

Crepey skin is one of those aging things that seems to appear overnight, even though we know it takes years to happen. It shows up under our eyes, on our neck, chest (decollete), and even on our arms.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
