Summer skin care – Beautiful summer weather is just around the corner, and you want to prepare for it. Pesky breakouts, sunburns, and acne need to avoid; the best way to achieve this is to adapt your ideal summer skin care routine.
As temperatures rise, so do humidity and heat; if you look closely, your skin is crying out for extra attention. In winter, their thick creams and textures can clog pores and cause more summer skincare problems, so you should adapt your skin regimen according to the environment and the weather.
The first thing to change is your facial cleanser: Summers are sweaty, and the skin secretes more oil to combat the hot, humid weather. That is why it is necessary to cleanse your face twice a day and use a suitable gel or foam based on water (for oily skin) or non-foaming (for dry and combination skin). Also, make sure your cleanser is alcohol-free and pH-balanced. The correct way to use a facial cleanser is to gently massage your face for a minute before washing it off with lukewarm water.
Tip: Avoid excessive cleaning. Use a soft facial tissue or washcloth if you need something good to cleanse in the middle of the day.
Use face mist before serum and moisturizer: a simple face mist plumps and refreshes skin. Spray holding about 8 inches from face.
Toner and Moisturizer: Oil-free, lightweight serums and moisturizers are what your skin needs this summer. Use an inner shine serum and moisturizer to lock in moisture and give your pores an extra dose of nourishment.
Add antioxidants to your skincare: Antioxidants hydrate the skin and help fight free radical damage. Vitamin C serums or creams are a great option to combat sun damage. Antioxidants also increase collagen and prevent premature ageing. You can also get a healthy dose of antioxidants by adding green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, and nuts to your daily diet.
Moisturize whenever you can – Moisturizing your skin from the inside out is the key to plump, healthy-looking, younger-looking skin. There are many ways to restore moisture to the skin. Drinking water at regular intervals is at the top of the list. Other forms are a hydrating hyaluronic serum during the day, a moisturizing sheet mask to rehydrate and soothe the skin, or a gel mask at night. In addition, carry a face mist with you to spray throughout the day.
Remember to exfoliate regularly: Use light exfoliation twice a week. It is necessary to remove dead skin cells, clean pores, remove dirt and grime from the skin, and improve blood circulation. Do not miss your lips, neck and upper chest when exfoliating. Be gentle with the skin, or you will have bruised and sensitive skin.
Sunscreen cannot ignore: UV rays are influential in the summer. The damage they cause is not only in terms of tanning. But they also cause pigmentation, uneven texture, fine lines, age spots, dull skin, and wrinkles. Therefore, a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 40 is a must for all skin types. Sunscreen is also essential when you’re indoors. Set a reminder to reapply sunscreen every few hours.
Don’t underestimate makeup: Applying makeup in layers prevents the skin from breathing since humidity and heat take a heavy toll on the skin. So consider lightweight powder-based products or tinted face balms and moisturizers.
Night care is still essential: Summers doesn’t mean you can skin the nightly routine. Use good night oil or night cream before going to bed. You can also opt for good night masks to renew skin cells at night.
