Victoria, the home of Dr. Anna’s clinic, offers some of the most favourable weather in Canada—but it’s not all sunshine. Summertime weather can wreak havoc on the skin. Dr. Anna’s patients say that summer can mean excess sweating, sun damage and drier skin.
So here’s four must-have products from Dr. Anna’s skin care line: face wash, sunscreen, anti-aging cream, and the soon-to-be-released lip cream. All of Dr. Anna’s products are backed by science and designed to keep summer skin hydrated, protected and fresh.
Face Wash by Dr. Anna
Heat and humidity can trigger the sebaceous glands causing the skin’s oil to flow, so daily washing is vital. This gentle foam cleanser removes makeup, oil and pore-clogging impurities with coconut oil, chamomile, niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and honeysuckle. Add warm water to one pump of the Dr. Anna Face Wash and apply to skin. Rinse with cold water. Dr. Anna recommends cleansing twice per day.

Anti-Aging Cream by Dr. Anna
Whether you’re sitting out in the sun or under a air conditioner, your skin dries out in summer. This hydrating cream can be used during the day, night or both.

At nighttime, use cream following Dr. Anna’s Face Wash to combat deep wrinkles, firms and nourishes skin. It has been proven to treat rosacea, acne and eczema.
*COMING SOON* Clean Gloss by Dr. Anna
Clean makeup is especially important in lip glosses and lipsticks. But what does ‘clean’ exactly mean? Parabens, methylisothiazoline, and phenoxyethanol free. It’s more than just keeping pores clean… parabens, that are present in best-selling lipsticks, have been found in breast tumors.
