A Quick Skincare Guide for Summer
With summer right around the corner, it’s time to start preparing our skincare routine for the change in weather. As the temperature and humidity levels rise, changes in the way our skin feels on a daily basis start to occur. With this quick skincare guide for summertime, not only will you find out the best products to use for this time of year but you can be sure that your skin will be glowing just in time for vacation!
Wear SPF Year-Round but Especially on those Hot Summer Days
If you plan on having a tropical vacation this summer, make sure the one thing that you carry with you at all times is your sunscreen. If you’ll be out in the sun all day, it’s best to reapply every two hours. And even if you’re not planning on heading to the beach at all this summer, it is still recommended that you wear sunscreen on a daily basis.
Protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun while also hydrating the skin with our Anti-Aging SPF 30 Moisturizer. Without a white cast, this sunscreen is the perfect addition to your daily routine. Add the moisturizer to cleansed skin, and if you want an extra hydration boost, apply right after our Bright & Clear Cream.
Increase your Exfoliation Routine
The heat in summer time makes all skin types more oily so that’s why increasing exfoliation works best this time of year. By getting rid of dead skin cells, dirt, and oil, exfoliating the skin reveals glowing and fresh skin. Experts recommend alpha-hydroxy-acids (AHAs) to open up blocked pores and release oils in the skin that can lead to acne.
One of the most well-researched and effective AHAs are glycolic acid because of its ability to gently resurface the skin and remove the dead skin cells, revealing radiant skin with regular use. With so many options for you to choose from, our Glycolic Acid range includes cleansers, toning pads, creams, and more. Add this exfoliation step to your summertime routine and your skin will thank you!
Opt for a light moisturizer
With the increase in oil production of the skin during summertime, heavy moisturizers are not as necessary as they are during the colder times of the year. Instead of slathering your skin with a heavy moisturizer, opt for a light moisturizer that hydrates without giving your skin that oily, slick feeling.
For daytime, an SPF moisturizer will work just fine. Our Anti-Aging SPF 30 Moisturizer hydrates the skin without making it feel too slick to the touch, which is perfect for summertime. At night, opt for a light moisturizer such as our Collagen Moisturizer. This moisturizer is perfect for summer as it contains antioxidants that protect the skin from the free radicals in the environment.
When you Vacation this Summer, Don’t Forget to Pack your Skincare Routine
The best thing you can do for your skin any time of the year is to stick with a routine. You can grab any one of our skincare routine bundles and pack them in your suitcase with you while you head on vacation this summer. As long as you follow a skincare routine consistently, your skin will look amazing all summer long.
