As you prepare to show more skin, get ready to face the sun’s rays by planning your skincare routine for summer. We all know to use SPF30+ to protect our skin from the sun, but what else can we do to keep our skin healthy and looking fresh and glowing during those summer scorchers? Follow these tips!

1. Exfoliate for Clearer, Smoother Skin

What It Does: Exfoliators remove dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers.

When: Exfoliate in the mornings before moisturizer and makeup application.

Summer Skincare Tip: Makeup will last longer on exfoliated skin! 

Don’t forget: After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating lotion to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with an SPF (as recommended by the FDA).


2. Keep Skin Hydrated

How: Up your regimen’s level of hydration with an intensive revitalizing daily face wash and rejuvenating mask.

When: Facial treatment masks are perfect for using once or twice a week. A revitalizing face wash daily is a refreshing skin prep, working to even out skin porosity.

Don’t Forget: Always moisturize after cleansing to trap hydration and prevent dry skin.

Summer Skincare Tip: Refresh weekly with a revitalizing mask to keep skin adequately hydrated and glowing.


3. Make Friends With H2O

Why: Summer conditions can lead to internal dehydration, which can result in skin problems, as well as headaches, dizzy spells, and other potentially serious concerns.

What You Can Do: As an essential part of your skincare routine for summer, drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily to maintain the critical moisture balance of the body and skin. This assists with detoxification from the inside out. Use an anti-aging serum on your face and skin to help protect it from free radicals.

Summer Skincare Tip: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!


4. Soothe Overexposed Skin

What: You forgot sunscreen, didn’t apply enough, or got caught in a sunny spell.

What’s Next: Unfortunately, the damage is done, but you don’t have to suffer! Super-soothing botanicals like aloe and anti-inflammatory topicals like CBD oils and cooling gels can help prevent peeling and reduce redness and inflammation.

How: Apply aloe, cooling balms, or soothing oils generously over exposed skin, preferably at the first sight of a pink glow. Use a soothing eye cream around the eyes to calm tender skin areas.

Prevent: The most important of all summer skincare tips is that it’s better to prevent sun damage than treat it! Even the best skincare routine for summer can only do so much, so be mindful about time spent in the sun, and always wear your sunscreen.

What To Do: One blistering sunburn doubles your risk of melanoma. Remember to get a yearly skin exam from a doctor and perform a self-examination once a month to detect early warning signs of carcinomas and malignant melanoma. Look for new growth or any skin changes. While your daily skincare routine is important, don’t overlook the big picture when it comes to summer skincare tips.


5. Avoid and Treat Sun Damage

What Causes Skin Damage: UV light causes photoaging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin, and wrinkles, whether you’ve burned your skin or not. When sunlight encounters skin, a cascade of damage results, including the stripping of barrier lipids, causing inflammation, production of reactive oxygen molecules that affect healthy cell growth, and stimulation of collagen-destructing enzymes.

What To Do: Here’s one of the most obvious yet effective summer skincare tips: stay out of the sun if possible! A tan may be a fashionable summer look, but it indicates damage. Arm your skin with premium anti-aging ingredients to help undo any damage that may occur. Fight the aging factors of UV rays with a daily skincare routine for summer composed of high-quality products.
