Your New Summertime Skincare Routine

Living in the Midwest, we all appreciate a warm, sunny day in the summer. Along with the change of season and exposure to the sun, you will also want to change your skincare regimen. We all want our skin to look healthy, radiant, and most importantly protected. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite summertime products and services at Fargo Dermatology.

SPF is your BFF

Unprotected exposure to the sun can lead to premature aging and damage. At Fargo Center for Dermatology, Dr. Rachel Ness has a variety of medical-grade sunscreens. An untinted sheer sunscreen like the Daily Sheer Physical SPF is a great option to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

But if you want a sunscreen with a tint, we offer Sheer Tinted Moisturizing HA Sunscreen. For those summer days when you don’t want to wear any makeup but want a slight coverage, this is a great option. It blends with your skin tone and is a great option for lake or pool days. As always, wearing a hat to cover your face is a great option as well!


In the summer, our skin tends to lack moisture and hydration, making it important to use products to add moisture back into the skin. That’s why the Pure HA Plumping Peptide Boost is a must-have. This product provides ultra hydration and is great for all skin types. This product is a number-one seller at Fargo Dermatology because of how well it works. The results speak for themselves.

On top of that, you’ll still want to drink LOTS of water. Hydration for the skin starts from within.

Give your skin a boost of antioxidants

Do you have pigmentation or melasma concerns? Melasma often flares up due to heat and sun exposure, making summer a prime time of year for this to be prevalent. Our Vitamin C Antioxidant Brightening Blend is the perfect serum to protect against free radical damage and skin discoloration and promotes healthy collagen production.

ZO Brightalive will also reduce dark spots and give you a more even skin tone. Using one or both products will help prevent or lessen any pigmentation or melasma concerns.

Looking to try something new and limited edition?

Try our Hydration & Brightening Mist. This is a vitamin C mist that will hydrate, soothe, and protect against photoaging. Plus, it can be used as a setting spray! Who doesn’t love a dual product?!
