The sun is out, temperatures are heating up, and it’s time to get outdoors and put your best skin forward. But getting the summery, glowy skin of your dreams takes work – and the right products in your repertoire.
Here’s how to switch up your skincare routine for the warm summer months.
First, it’s important to get out with the old, and in with the new. After months of hibernating and cozying up through winter and spring, we’re sure that you have some products that are expired or past their prime.
That’s why we recommend that you go through your lotions, oils, creams, and brushes – and nix anything that you notice:
And no, you’re not being wasteful. You’re doing your skin – and your counter space – a major favor.
Next, it’s time to re-rack your beauty go-to products and prioritize lighter textures and formulations. Why? During summer, our skin tends to hold more water. On top of that, we’re sweating and producing oil much more frequently than we do in the winter and spring months. It’s important to update your routine accordingly and stick to:
Don’t. Skip. Your. Moisturizer.
We know it may be tempting - after running around in the sun, spending time in the water, and dealing with hot, sticky evenings, it may feel like you don’t need to slather on any extra hydration.
But lathering on moisturizer can not only keep your skin from drying out but also:
Again, we just recommend that you stick to a light, airy formulation with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, MSM, and vitamin C.
Speaking of vitamin C, summer is an absolutely crucial time to make sure that you’re getting enough antioxidant protection.
Why? UV rays are the number one cause of free radical damage – in fact, UV is responsible for a full 80% of the visible signs of aging. And antioxidants are proven to stop that damage in its tracks, helping to:
Find all the antioxidants you need in our Most Loved Starter Routine.
Again, heat and humidity are alwaysgoing to increase oil and sweat production. Add to that more dust and debris from the environment, and you have a recipe for increased breakouts and irritation.
It’s important, then, that your summer routine includes some real acne-busters like:
Finally, you need to focus on preventing sunburn and skin damage. This can onlybe accomplished using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. If you’re looking to avoid that white caste, you can add your sunscreen to your moisturizer for a lighter touch.
Enjoy the summer sun!
