In this post, discover vital summer skincare tips and recommended products to maintain your skin’s health and radiance throughout the season.

Understanding Summer Skin Changes

You can expect skin changes during the warmer months. This is primarily due to increased exposure to sunlight.

These changes include:

  • Increased Humidity: As the weather gets warmer, the humidity and temperature rise, increasing sweat production. While sweating helps regulate body temperature, it can have a negative effect on the skin, depending on its type. Dry skin tends to lose natural oils due to the increased humidity, resulting in further dehydration. On the other hand, excess sweat can clog pores and cause breakouts for oily skin, making it more challenging to manage.
  • Increased Exposure to UV Rays: Summer brings strong and intense sunshine, which can threaten our skin through UV rays. These rays aren’t visible to the naked eye, but they can penetrate deeply into the skin, causing premature aging signs such as wrinkles and sunspots. Moreover, prolonged exposure to UV rays can increase the risk of developing skin cancer, which is a significant concern.
  • Increased Use of Air Conditioning: Air conditioning can feel like a lifesaver when trying to escape the heat in the summertime. However, it can have adverse effects on your skin. Air conditioners remove moisture, creating an environment that can quickly deplete your skin’s natural hydration. This can worsen skin sensitivity if prone to it, leaving your complexion feeling tight and itchy.

We recommend this amazing product because antioxidants are important for an added layer of protection against the sun and the free radicals that try to break down the skin in these warmer months.

II. Hydrinity Prelude Cleanser

With the warmer weather ahead, we tend to sweat and use sunscreen more often. This cleanser reduces bacteria on the skin and improves tone and texture. It also draws out.

How to Use: Apply as part of your morning and evening skincare regimen, gently massaging two pumps onto a damp face and neck for at least one minute.

III. ColorScience or Elta MD Sunscreen

Colorescience Sunforgettable® Total Protection® Face Shield Flex SPF 50

Elta MD Sunscreen

The OG anti-aging product. We recommend ColoreScience or Elta MD to protect your skin.

In skincare, re-applying sunscreen every two hours is crucial to ensure continuous protection against harmful UV rays. As board-certified dermatologist Doris Day emphasizes, forgetting to re-apply sunscreen is akin to not applying it at all, highlighting the importance of this routine for skin health and sun protection.

How to Use: Apply generously to face, neck and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure. Re-apply at least every two hours or after 40 minutes of swimming.

Summer Skincare Tips

Remember that taking care of your skin involves more than applying products. You should also prioritize taking care of your skin from the inside out. This means paying attention to what you eat and drink.

Stay protected from the sun by staying hydrated, avoiding peak sun hours and wearing protective clothing.

Add these to your routine alongside our handpicked recommended products to give your skin its best shot at staying healthy this season.
