We all want that perfect summertime glow, but when the weather starts to change from spring to summer, you may notice more dryness or breakouts. This is especially true if you live in a hot climate where just stepping out the door causes you to break a sweat! No matter where you are, adapting your skincare routine for the season can help your skin stay healthy and clear. Below are our top tips for the perfect summertime skin routine.
Cleansing is important all year round – especially if you wear makeup regularly. However, in the summer, cleansing can be a game-changer in your skincare routine. With the weather heating up, you may notice that you’re sweating more, which causes your pores to clog and acne to start popping up. In terms of preventing acne and keeping your skin clean, finding the right cleanser can make all the difference.
What works for some people may not work for everyone so you may want to experiment a little to see what cleanser is best for your skin. When looking for a cleanser, it’s important to know what kind of skin you have as this can impact what kind of cleanser will work best. For example, if you have oily skin, you may want to try a cleansing oil. This might seem counter-intuitive, but oil attracts oil and will lift away impurities without leaving your skin feeling tight, shiny, or dry. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, your skin is likely red, itchy, flaky, and tight feeling. If this sounds like your skin, try a moisture-balancing cleanser that is gentle on your skin.
Exfoliating is an essential part of our summer skincare routine which helps to get rid of extra dirt, grime, and dead skin cells. Many people exfoliate in the shower however, using an exfoliant before your shower is one of the most effective ways to remove dead skin in the summertime. If you like using an exfoliant on your face, try only using it only one to two times a week and in place of your cleanser after removing makeup.
Prolonged exposure to the sun, heat, chlorine, and saltwater can cause your skin to get even drier in the summertime as you spend more time outside and in the water. Skin masks are ideal for any summer skincare routine because they provide your skin with an extra gush of moisture that your skin craves. The LuxaDerme Bio Cellulose Brightening Face Sheet Mask will give you an instant radiance and glow while leaving your skin feeling totally hydrated and rejuvenated.
When thinking about skincare, we often automatically think about our face and overlook the rest of our body – even though our hands age must faster than our face! LuxaDerme Deep Moisturizing Hand Hydration Gloves and Deep Moisturizing Foot Hydration Socks contain rich blends of antioxidants and botanical extracts which work together to provide your hands and feet with intensive moisturizing and nourishment. The moisture-rich and nutrient dense formula also restores elasticity, softens cuticles, revitalizes nails. The best part? You only have to leave them on for 30 minutes.
Both masks come in travel-friendly packets which are perfect for your next tropical vacation!
4. Wear Sunscreen
Sunscreen is a vital step in any skincare routine, especially in the summer. Regularly wearing sunscreen can prevent your skin from sun damage and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. The sun can also do a number on your lips. Try picking up a lip balm with SPF 15 or 30 and don’t forget to reapply when spending time in the sunshine!
