Summer skin is in.
For most of us summertime means fun times. But our skin often doesn’t feel the same way. The sun and the heat can take their toll and it’s on us to try to help our skin out. That’s why we assembled some essential summertime skincare tips. Keep your skin happy and healthy all summer long, no matter your skin type.
Going easy doesn’t mean skipping your routine! It means tweaking it according to new weather conditions like heat or humidity. For instance, if you use heavier, oil-based cleansers maybe it’s time to try out a gentler version like a foaming one. Most importantly, be careful with photoactive ingredients. These ingredients react when exposed to sunlight – either making your skin more sun-sensitive or making the product itself less effective.
On the other hand, don’t forget to moisturize regularly. Since we tend to get oily and sweat more during the hot summer months, we’re tempted to skip on moisturizer. But this doesn’t help our skin. As a matter of fact, it only makes things worse. Our skin is already feeling a bit stressed and now we’re denying it nourishment and a layer of protection against pollutants, irritation and dryness. Plop on the moisturizer – trust me, your skin needs it!
You should wear sunscreen all day, every day, all year round. Especially during the summer months when the days are longer and UV rays are stronger. Sunscreen minimizes UV damage like wrinkles, spots and other aging signs. More importantly, it decreases your risk of skin cancers and skin precancers. Stay safe and don’t forget about sunscreen.
The key to avoid any nasty breakouts during the summer is to properly cleanse all the dead skin cells, oil, sweat and sunscreen that accumulates on your face during the day. Gentle exfoliation is a life-saver here. And the best of the best at getting rid of all the gunk without stressing out your skin is LUNA mini 2. Cleanse your face for a minute and glow for the whole day!
If your summer months get extremely hot or you tend to sweat a lot, think about ways to adapt your makeup. Lighter is better. Swap your foundation for a tinted moisturizer and a dab of concealer. Think about switching to waterproof mascara and stock up on the setting spray. Above all, pay attention to the labels and reach for the non-comedogenic products. They are formulated without pore-clogging ingredients – a skin-saver!
Staying hydrated is vital for your health and your skin. Drink as much water as possible and replace a sweaty mess with a healthy glow. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day. Ten if you’re spending your days in the sun. Hydrated skin is happy skin.
Take good care of your skin: minimize sun exposure, eat lots of summer fruits and think about your whole body. Plop on body lotions or creams and exfoliate with amazing body scrubs. Treat your skin to something special – facials, masks, all the extra-pampering! Especially if you end up staying in the sun for a long period of time or getting a sunburn.
