Looking for summer skincare tips that will keep your skin protected and glowing all summer long? The sun is shining, the thermometer is steadily rising and we have one thing on the mind: summer skincare! Let’s get to it, ladies, and go over tips and products that are crucial to protecting your skin during the hot summer months.
Summer Skincare Essentials
With the guidance of sagely beauty blogger, Suzie, we go over skincare tips to keep in mind when transitioning your beauty routine from spring to summer. Remember, ladies, a chance in temperature also means a change in your routine as the hot weather and sun’s rays will damage your skin faster than you can say, “Pool party!”
Sure, relaxing by the beach is fun, but what about on days when all you want to do is pamper yourself in the comfort of your own home? With this Bath Salt Making Kit from Grow & Make, you can create your own personal blend of bath salts, and enjoy them all without leaving your home! Long live summer!
1. Summer Skincare Essentials – Moisturize
You may think summer is the perfect time to ditch your moisturizer since, hey, you’ll be sweating buckets and in places you’ve probably never sweat before, but don’t! That’s a common misconception as your skin still needs to be hydrated and moisturized during the summer season. Remember, dry skin will only get drier if you’re not moisturizing, but continually sweating.
2. Summer Skincare Essentials- Sun Protection
If you’ve been using SPF for your skin throughout the year, this is the time to start doubling up on your protection. You can go as high as you want when it comes to SPF. However, you just have to find something that will be easily absorbed by the skin and a product that doesn’t feel too sticky. We recommend Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Daily Shade Facial Lotion!
3. Summer Skincare Essentials – Tone
The summer heat will eventually get to you. What your skin needs in order to look fresh and hydrated all day long is a boost in the form of a toner. Toner will not only keep your skin fresh and oil-free, it will also restore its pH balance.
4. Summer Skincare Essentials – Exfoliate
Summertime is tan time and if you want to tan faster, you must exfoliate your skin every day or every other day, depending on its sensitivity. A gentle exfoliant or mask will suffice and will help slough off all those dead skin cells for smoother, brighter skin.
5. Summer Skincare Essentials – Self Tanners
Spending too much time under the sun is a big no-no for the skin. But what do you do if you really want to get a tan? Two words: self tanners! There are plenty of readily available self tanners in the market today that will instantly give your skin a color boost (without basking under the skin). Pick a product that produces a noticeable tan, but not a too-dark color or an orange-y tan (which is worse and will make you look like an Oompa Loompa).
Do make sure that the self tanner you choose complements the makeup you’re wearing.
