Summer Skincare Essentials
Here are some summer skincare essentials for your review. Caring for the skin is a full-time job and as seasons come and go, so must your skincare regimen. While winter was cold and tough and demanded moisture for the skin, summer comes with very different requirements to protect you from the effects of the sun.
Ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage and leave you with dull wrinkled skin. To avoid this, you need a skincare routine to provide UV protection, nourishment, sweat resistance, and coolness. Don’t be afraid to throw out your winter products for summer ones.
Read on as we discuss the summer skincare essentials for a wonderful season.
With the heat and sweat common to summer, vibrant skin will need regular cleansing. A face wash ensures you can get dirt and makeup residue off your face. The best products in this area equally soothe the skin and nourish it with incorporated nutrients. We recommend quality facewash products like First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser or Sea Foam Complete Face Wash from Pacifica Beauty.
Yes, your lips need protection from the sun too. Keep the lips soft, smooth, and moisturized with a sunscreen lip balm like Coola’s Liplux balm with SPF 30. Such products should be handy and easy to re-apply when you are outside.
‘Tis the season of exfoliation! Summer is the best time to exfoliate the skin regularly especially before your self-tanning routine. It helps to keep the pores clean and healthy. Self-tanning can also go smoothly without streaks on an exfoliated skin. Use gentle body scrubs like Yes to Coconut Polishing Body Scrub.
Pay special attention to parts of the body like the elbow, knees, feet, and ankles. Your go-to scrub should come with natural oils to make it even more effective.
Everyone loves to fake the glow during summer, but it is important to choose the right product. A good self-tanner is safe for your skin and eliminates unwanted smells or streaks. We recommend a product like Self Tan from The Organic Pharmacy. It is nourishing, hydrating, and packed with natural ingredients.
A face mist is essential for refreshing the skin during the day. Can you pass up that feeling of relief and coolness with the heat bearing down on you? Certainly not. Keep a portable face mist bottle with you always. Ole Henriksen’s Pure Nurture Facial Water is deeply hydrating and nourishing with antioxidants to soothe the skin.
Other skincare essential tips have to do with your habits and daily activities.
- Wear wide-brimmed hats to protect your face when you are out in the sun.
- Shower more often; it is the ultimate refreshing option.
- Use self-care or grooming products like deodorants to keep sweat and nasty smells away.
- Go light with makeup and body oils.
