CLEANSE Use a gentle cleanser like Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser ($33, dermalogica.com) and exfoliate twice a week. Somerville likes scrubs with both chemical exfoliants like fruit enzymes, and physical exfoliants like smooth beads or finely ground particles.
WEAR Somerville advises her clients to use an SPF with antioxidantsPhilosophy's Hope in a Jar with SPF For Dry Skin ($38, ulta.com) is our new moisturizing favoriteas well as prescription Retin-A. "Retin-A speeds up cell turnover to get rid of damage deep below the surface of the skin," explains Somerville.
REPAIR For an extra glow during the summer months, we love Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair ($150, katesomerville.com), which has collagen builders that actually reverse sun damage. It's expensiveand effective.
