Skincare and Sun Safety – Toronto PATH

The summer of 2017 is flying by and although we’ve had an uncharacteristically wet start to the season, things seem to be warming up as we approach mid July.

There is no better way to embrace the beautiful days ahead than spending time in the sun. As we embark on cottage weekends, patio dining, and exploring the outdoors we need to remember to care for our skin. Here are a couple tips on protecting your skin while enjoying the beautiful weather.


Although it’s important to use sunscreen year-round, it becomes essential during the warmer months. Consonant Skincare is a fantastic option for your primary sunscreen solution. They even call it “The Perfect Sunscreen”! Unlike most sunscreens, The Perfect Sunscreen is fragrance-free, non-greasy, and water resistant. You can find this product and additional Consonant Skincare products at the Richmond Adelaide Centre. The Body Shop, situated at the Royal Bank Plaza, also carries a fabulous array of sun protection and beauty remedies ranging from SPF foundations to firming day lotions. Both stores carry natural products that have been tested and tailored for different skin types.

You can also find all your basic skin protection products at Rexall in the Richmond Adelaide Centre or at Shoppers Drug Mart in Royal Bank Plaza.

It’s necessary to treat your body every so often, even if it involves a slight splurge.  Feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and renewed with a luxury manicure and pedicure treatment from Polish’d. Get your fingers and toes buffed, cut, and polished and remove all of winter’s dry skin. Choose a bright summer colour and you’ll feel good as new and ready to show off those beautiful nails!

Waxon Waxbar, located at the Richmond-Adelaide Centre, also provides a variety of skincare products and services.  These range from body oils and lotions to exfoliating kits. The Waxon Waxbar experts are very knowledgeable and approachable, and are ready to answer any questions you may have about skincare and waxing.  

There’s no shame is avoiding the sun occasionally. We recommend doing it in style with an adorable and affordable floppy hat from Jazz Casuals, situated in the Metrocentre. Find an excellent selection of cute clothes and accessories that you can flaunt all summer long. Complement your hat with a fabulous pair of new sunglasses. You can find your perfect pair at EZ Eye Care in MetroCentre. EZ Eye Care carries a wide range of prescription and non-prescription sunglasses that fit every vision and occasion. Whether you want something designer or classic, they have you covered and will make sure your delicate eyes stay protected!

Helpful Tips:

  • Not all foundations and face creams contain SPF, make sure you’re always using a sunscreen underneath your makeup.
  • Remember to reapply lotion throughout the day, especially  after a refreshing dip in the lake!
  • If you’re going to be outside for a long period of time, check the UV index before leaving the house and be sure  to use the right level of protection.

Now you’re ready to have some fabulous, and safe, fun in the sun!
