Summer Skincare Routine: Adapting Your Skincare Regimen for Summer

As springtime fades and hotter, sunnier weather emerges, it’s important to update your daily skincare routine accordingly. While you shouldn’t need to drastically overhaul your current regimen, incorporating a few basic summer skincare tips goes a long way in keeping your complexion healthy. Follow these steps to achieve and maintain a beautiful summer glow!

1. Start With Sun Protection

The sun’s UV rays can do major damage. While you should wear your sunscreen all year round, summer is when it’s most crucial. Put on your SPF30+ every day, even if you’re not spending a significant amount of time outside or if the sun’s not out. Those UV rays can penetrate your skin through windows and clouds, so it’s important to continue your summer skincare routine even if you’re not sunbathing.

2. Combat Environmental Stressors With Antioxidants

Because you’re probably going to be outside more often, your skin is naturally going to be exposed to free radicals, pollution, pollen, and other external irritants that cause oxidative stress that leads to cellular damage. 

Antioxidants such as vitamins and minerals occur naturally in the body, but as we age, their supply diminishes. Replenishing them gives your body the tools needed to fight back!

At Lea Black Beauty®, we formulate all of our skincare products with potent, natural antioxidants sourced from exotic regions all around the globe. Planning your summer skincare routine has never been so easy!

3. Be Mindful of Cleansing Habits

One of the most important summer skincare tips is that you may need to cleanse your face more frequently to remove dirt, toxins, sweat, and oil that can build up when you’re enjoying those sunny summer days. However, overwashing can actually do more harm than good, drying your skin out and causing it to produce excessive amounts of oil as a response.

So, it’s okay to cleanse when necessary, but you don’t want to be cleansing constantly. It’s all about balance. Like the rest of the year, a typical summer skincare routine involves cleansing twice daily—once in the morning and once at night. However, you may need to sneak an extra cleanse in here and there.

During the summer, you’ll want to use a cleanser that’s effective yet gentle, especially if you have sensitive skin. Your skin is vulnerable, and you’re probably going to be cleansing more often, so avoid harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Lea Black Beauty® Skin Revitalizing Daily Face Wash is a perfect fit for summer!

4. Moisturize Regularly

This is one of the most obvious summer skincare tips on those dry days, but a common blunder is neglecting moisturization as part of your summer skincare routine on humid days. 

When there’s a lot of moisture in the air, you may not feel like hydration is necessary. However, that humidity causes you to sweat more than usual, which can drastically diminish your internal hydration—even if you don’t feel it from the outside. Moisturizing replenishes the hydration you naturally lose throughout the day.

Lea Black Beauty® CBD Daily Face Moisturizer is an ideal summertime solution. It’s packed with premium, natural ingredients that deeply hydrate your skin, including aloe vera, vitamin E, green tea extract, and CBD.

5. Exfoliate to Remove Pore-Clogging Impurities

Cleansing helps to prevent clogged pores, but a solid summer skincare routine should include exfoliation at least 2-3 times a week. Exfoliators remove sweat, dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities that can lead to breakouts. Exfoliating also encourages cell turnover, which is an important process that keeps your complexion youthful and gives it a healthy glow.

6. Tighten Pores With Toner

Toners offer many dermal benefits, including hydrating, reducing inflammation, balancing pH, and refining rough, flaky patches. Using toner is also one of the most essential summer skincare tips because it also shrinks and tightens your pores. This naturally helps your skin to keep the bad stuff out and lock the good stuff in!

7. Don’t Forget Your Body, Lips, and Eye Area

A proper summer skincare routine should include products for maintaining the health of all of your skin—not just the T-zone and cheeks! Body lotion, lip balm, and eye care products provide full coverage, ensuring that you look and feel your best everywhere.
