The Dos and Dont’s of Summer Skincare
Never let ‘em see you sweat is great, in theory. But let’s face it, as temperatures begin to rise, so do our perspiration levels. Summer requires an entirely different skincare routine to combat excess oils and clogged pores.
We got you!
Here are the summer skincare dos and don’ts to keep your skin happy and healthy during those long, hot summer days.
- Start your morning off with a gentle anti-inflammatory, an antibacterial cleanser that will help to unclog your pores. Cleansing also helps to restore the pH balance in your skin. The ZO Skin Health-Gentle Cleanser is designed to remove impurities and leave the skin feeling refreshed, clean, and hydrated.
- Always remember to moisturize your face with a light product that will not sit heavy on your face. The Alastin-Ultra Nourishing Moisturizer contains exclusive moisture building ingredients, powerful antioxidants and skin-soothing phytonutrients.
- Opt for lighter cosmetics to avoid clogged pores and breakouts.
- Don’t forget to apply SPF on your face and body to protect against the harmful UVA and UVB rays. We suggest looking for an SPF that has a minimum of SPF 15. The ISDIN-Eryfotona Ageless Tinted (SPF 50) protects, repairs, and corrects skin with a lightweight, tinted mineral sunscreen offering broad-spectrum protection.
- Apply a Vitamin C serum during the day. It acts as an antioxidant and leaves your skin glowing. We suggest the Revision Skincare-C+ Correcting Complex as it helps to support the skin’s natural production of Vitamins C and E.
- Don’t over-cleanse your face. This can lead to dryness, which can stimulate increased oil production and irritation.
- Don’t forget to exfoliate one to two times a week in the evening. Exfoliating helps to slough off all of the dead skin and also cleans up impurities and soaks up excess oils. The Skin Better Science-Detoxifying Scrub Mask is a clay-based scrub mask that uses naturally derived ingredients to resurface the skin.
- Don’t leave your sunburns untreated. From minor issues such as tanning and pigmentation to major concerns such as skin cancer, sunburns left untreated are very harmful to the health of your skin. Be sure to prep your skin with a high SPF and treat any burns with cooling agents such as aloe vera or hydrating body lotions.
