Memorial Day is a time when we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom — a chance to salute our brave soldiers and their families as they remember loved ones. On a less somber note, it’s also the unofficial start of summer (the season’s first official day is June 20). And while summer may look a little different for most of us this year, as we sport masks in public and practice social distancing, one thing that hasn’t changed is the opportunity to shop a good Memorial Day sale.
Whether you’re quarantining at home or venturing back out into the wider world this summer, you’ll want to take good care of your skin — and that means using plenty of sunscreen, staying hydrated and moisturized, and smoothing on a night serum before you go to sleep. Luckily, three of our favorite skincare brands are offering amazing deals on this three-day weekend — a Memorial Day sale for each day off!
Ole Henriksen, La Roche-Posay, and DERMADoctor are all slashing prices, making this the perfect opportunity to stock up on some of their most-loved products. Here are our picks for the best deals from each retailer!
