Temperatures are warming up and the sun is finally shining which means transitioning your skincare routine should be top of mind as summer nears closer.
Different seasons require different skin care tips to help make sure you get the most out of your products and look your absolute best. Here are the simplest ways to tweak your routine to make sure your skin stays youthful all summer long!
Step Up Your Cleansing
When summer comes around and the weather gets warmer, sweating will become inevitable. Sweat can not only ruin your makeup, but it also allows dirt, debris, and pollution to seep into your pores and live in your face causing all kinds of skin issues. As summer nears closer you need to make sure you’ve got a great cleansing routine that can tackle dirt from a sweaty summer.
Sunshine can dry out the skin so if you’re using soap or foam cleansers, your skin is going to start feeling tight after washing, and wrinkles can appear even worse. For summer, switch to an oil cleanser which allows you to fully clean your skin and pores while washing away dead skin cells and sweat. It will give your skin a clean glow while also delivering powerful anti-aging ingredients to help fight lines and wrinkles.
Fight Sun Spots
When your skin is exposed to powerful UV rays, it causes all sorts of reactions in your skin. It can lead to the production of free radicals which are linked to aging faster, but it can also cause melanin production. Melanin is the darker pigment in your skin responsible for freckles, age spots, and sunspots. As we age, your risk of sunspots gets higher from UV exposure and it can leave you looking years older than you really are.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your skin tone even and have your face looking youthful, you need to be prepared to battle sunspots that are a natural side effect of being out in the summertime. Using a Dark Spot Corrector regularly will help manage pigmentation issues and leave you with a brighter and more even complexion. When your skin tone is even and free of sunspots and dark spots, it will help your skin look even better and help take a few years off the look of your face.
Stick With Moisturizer
When the weather warms up and you start to get humid air, your skin may trick you into thinking it doesn’t need hydration. The truth is that no matter how hot and humid it can be in the summer, the deeper layers of your skin still need hydration and nourishment to be able to look and feel its best.
One big mistake a lot of people make in the summer is cutting down using their moisturizer because the skin doesn’t look or feel dry on the surface. If you are skipping moisturizer, your skin will suffer by lacking moisture in the deeper layers of skin and not being able to get the proper anti-aging nutrients that using a moisturizing cream and provide. To keep skin looking its best all summer, make sure you’re still using your daily moisturizer at least twice a day…. and don’t forget SUNSCREEN!
