Summer is in full swing. The weather is warmer, the days are longer, and you may notice changes in your skin.
In the same way we change our wardrobe with the seasons, it’s important to switch up our skincare too.
Your skin, just like your body, responds differently to weather and environmental factors. So it’s important to adjust your products as your skin’s needs change with the seasons. Even small changes can give your skin much-needed refreshment and keep it healthy and happy!
In the summer months, most people spend more time outdoors, in the water, and are more active. The following tips can help you keep your skin healthy and get the glowy summer skin you’re after!
Protect your skin
While protecting your skin is a given all year round, it’s especially important in the Summer when you’re spending long days in the sun. We recommend wearing a hat or sunglasses, spending time in the shade, and applying this natural sunscreen from Suntegrity. It renews, hydrates, protects, primes, and covers the skin.
Supercharged with youth-promoting antioxidants that help scavenge surface free radicals, this cream also provides mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection. Hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin, red algae, and Certified Organic: aloe vera, jojoba, sunflower, pomegranate, cucumber, and green tea help rejuvenate, moisturize and hydrate the skin while non-nano size zinc-oxide protects the skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays, as well as reduces the appearance of redness.
Apply your sunscreen after moisturizing, before, or in place of makeup. If you’re spending long hours in the sun, it’s important to reapply sunscreen every few hours.
Swap heavy moisturizers for hydrating oils
In the winter, we tend to reach for ultra-rich, hydrating creams that lock in moisture and protect our skin from the dry, cold air. However, in the warmer months, when the temperature is high, and the atmosphere is humid, those creams can feel heavy and may leave your skin feeling oily.
Instead, reach for a hydrating oil like the Botnia Replenishing Facial Oil. It’s formulated to reduce inflammation and increase cellular regeneration with a variety of botanicals, giving you all-day protection without leaving you feeling greasy.
Apply your oil morning and evening on freshly cleansed skin after toning and moisturizing or in place of face cream.
Exfoliate for smooth Summer skin
You tend to sweat more in the Summer, which can lead to an increase in breakouts. Gentle exfoliation can help clear away dead skin cells and debris, preventing and eliminating breakouts. The Josh Rosebrook Active Enzyme Exfoliator is our go-to for year-round smooth skin. It’s made with potent fruit, honey, and herbal enzymes and acids to gently slough away dead skin cells while finely ground round walnut shells mechanically reveal new skin and help to stimulate collagen production.
Use this mask a few times a week to keep your skin healthy and smooth throughout the Summer.
Hydration is crucial for whole-body wellness and promoting healthy, glowing skin. During the Summer, your body needs additional hydration due to the heat and humidity. To ensure you’re staying hydrated, follow these tips:
- Start the day with water before coffee or tea
- Eat hydrating foods like cucumber, watermelon, tomatoes, and celery
- Bring a water bottle with you on the go
- Infuse your water with herbs and fruit
- Set reminders to drink throughout the day
- If you’re spending time in the heat, exercising, or drinking excessive caffeine, up your water intake to account for the extra fluid loss
Avoid Heavy Makeup
Heavy makeup prevents your skin from breathing, which can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. Especially in the warmer months, when you tend to sweat more, consider wearing less makeup and when you do, remember lighter is better. For example, opt for tinted moisturizer over heavy foundation and lip balm over lipstick.
