Summer is here and we could all use a little rest and relaxation. Whether you are looking for a sunny staycation in town or branching out to a remote beach side locale, packing light is essential. The question is, what essential items do you pack to get the most out of your sunny excursion? We have compiled a list of a few of our favorite products at Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute that will pack easy and come to great use. Here are our top 4 favorite summer vacation essentials:   EltaMD Sunscreen – This item is very much a given. Spending hours on end out in the sun will require a strong broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. EltaMD is one of our favorite sunscreens! It provides UVA/UVB sun protection and helps calm and protect acne-prone skin (facial sunscreen), while the antioxidant defense combats skin-aging free radicals. Not to mention, EltaMD is fragrance, oil, paraben and sensitivity-free, as well as noncomedogenic. CADI_FB-Car_Top4_EltaMD Sun Hat – For increased sun protection and a cute accessory, a sun hat always comes in handy. We have a variety of styles in-office, some of which include UPF protection. CADI_FB-Car_Top4_SunHat NeoStrata Anti-aging Kit – We love this kit, especially for traveling; it provides a complete skin care regimen with only four products. This kit includes a NeoStrata Skin Active Exfoliating Wash, Matrix Support SPF 30, Cellular Restoration and Intensive Eye Therapy. The NeoStrata Anti-aging Kit is also available as part of our June specials. CADI_FB-Car_Top4_NeoStrata Glo Minerals Pressed Base – After spending the day in the sun, a night out is in order! Glo Minerals Pressed Base foundation comes in a compact case for easy travel and provides sheer- to full-coverage that also nourishes, corrects and protects skin.
