The right products can make or break your skincare routine. Fortunately, Southwest Florida beauty pros know a thing or two about creating powerhouse formulas. Sunscreen is a must to keep damage at bay. Since you wear it daily, the best formula layers beautifully, never leaves a white cast and always protects from harsh rays with SPF levels above 30. Project Glammers’ tinted DEFEND Sunscreen Anti-oxidant Facial Sunscreen SPF 40 has nourishing vitamins C and E, and is tinted for a blurring effect.

At-home spa days call for a good detox. We’re all about Envio Skincare’s Cranberry Clarifying Clay Mask, infused with Vitamin C-rich cranberry, chamomile and rosemary leaf oil for baby-soft skin. The Naples-based brand has mastered the art of lightweight, non-greasy formulas (we also love their Gel Hydrator, with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture, lilac leaf to restore the skin barrier and a redness-fighting green tint that combine to eradicate stubborn acne).

For a good cleanser, look to the Vintner’s Daughters Active Renewal Cleanser, created by the heir to Naples Winter Wine Festival royalty Jeff Garguilo and Valerie Boyd, April Garguilo. Her brand earned a loyal following after she launched her silky, phytoceramide- and phytonutrient-rich Active Botanical Serum in 2013. The recently-released cleanser utilizes her trademarked Phyto Radiance Infusion to nourish while whisking away built-up oil, makeup and SPF.

And, because skincare doesn’t stop with your face, surgeon and skincare guru Dr. Kiran Gill created a Clarifying Body Scrub, infused with smoothing salicylic and glycolic acids that gently exfoliate to reveal supple skin. To moisturize, we like Guess My Age Super Fruit + Peptide Intense Rejuvenating Cream from Naples’ dermatologist Dr. Cyndi Yag-Howard and her daughter, Aubrey Howard. The fruit-driven, antioxidant-packed moisturizer has collagen-producing peptides and moisture-retaining emollients. Now, you’re covered from head to toe.
