The heat and humidity in the air mean it is officially Summer, and we are right in the middle of it. Just like clothing, your skincare routine changes with the weather. Although you may love to lie in the sun, it is important to take proper precautions when it comes to your skin.
So what are these steps and secrets?
1. Swap Out Your Heavy Moisturizer With An Oil-Based Serum
When you moisturize your face, you are hydrating your skin. This is essential during the summer when you are sweating in the heat. Regardless of how much water you drink during the day, cold air conditioning dries out your skin and pores leaving your face feeling like sandpaper. Although your face might feel stickier during the summer months, artificially cool air makes it even more important to add moisture back into your skin. Try to stay away from heavier creams and lotions, and try switching to an oil-based product instead. If you are looking for an oil-based moisturizer, we recommend our Face Serum.
2. Incorporate Exfoliating Into Your Skincare Routine
Who doesn’t love a good exfoliant? You can practically feel the dead skin cells leaving your body. During the summer, your skin gets covered in dirt, grime, and dead skin cells. Exfoliating regularly helps to eliminate dirt and sweat from your pores. Our personal favorite is Immunocologie’s Exfoliating Lotion.
3. Beat The Heat With A Hydrating Face Mist
The summer heat and sun can leave your face feeling sticky. Sometimes all you really need is a cooling mist to refresh your skin and restore your glow. Using a face mist helps to balance your skin’s pH levels and hydrate your face. If you are looking for a good mist, we love our Vital Mist, perfect for that mid-day refresh.
4. Use A Clay-Based Mask For Extra HydrationDuring the summer, the sun and heat can leave your face and body completely dehydrated. Clay masks are a great way to detox, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. It helps to draw out dirt, de-clog pores and other imperfections that settle into your skin. Not only do these masks help exfoliate, but they also help add moisture back into your skin, perfect for the summer months. We suggest the Vital Clay Mask and Spot Treatment.
No one likes it when their skin suffers. None of these tips are truly secrets, but they definitely make a difference when implemented. During the Summer months pamper your skin and implement these tools into your skin routine especially during the hot and sticky summer months.
