Now that summer has arrived, it’s time to start thinking about switching up your skincare routine. Have you ever heard that what works for your skin in winter may not be the best for your skin in the summer? With the summer season at its peak, you not only need to tuck away those winter boots and break out the sandals, but you should also switch-up your skincare routine. Here are 4 easy tricks to help your skin stay flawless and hydrated during those hot and humid months.
1. Preventing Dehydration. During those active sweaty months, your skin’s ecosystem is drained of the love it really needs – water. Prevent dehydration by not only guzzling down that H2O but by using products that are going to keep your skin happy and hydrated. Switch out some of your thicker, creamier moisturizes and go for something a bit more lightweight. Try out REPARATIVE MOISTURE EMULSION. This lightweight, rejuvenating moisturizer is formulated with pharmaceutical-grade botanicals, peptides, and powerful antioxidants that helps keep your skin healthy, smooth, and protected.
2. Exfoliation. The outside environment has a lot to do with the health of your skin’s tone and texture. Being exposed to the extreme highs and lows of the weather, your skin starts to get a buildup of dead skin cells that must go! Gently buffing away these skin cells is a key factor to getting a brighter glow and helping your products better penetrate your skin. Switch out your gritty exfoliants and try our TRI-ACTIVE EXFOLIANT . This product combines powerful botanical enzymes, salicylic acid and eco-friendly microbeads which provide ideal physical and biochemical exfoliation. It gently exfoliates your skin, leaving it polished, smooth and bright. TRI-ACTIVE EXFOLIANT also helps minimize pore size and reduces breakouts – which is perfect for these summer months when sweat can make you breakout.
3. Stop Sun Exposure. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to wear sunscreen all year long, but it is especially important to protect your skin during these scorching hot summer months. Summer is usually the time where you find yourself outside more often than any other seasons so sun exposure cannot be avoided. Even spending the whole day in the shade, you will still be exposed to the UVA and UVB rays because the sun reflects off the ground or other surrounding areas. UV damage gives you the dreaded dark spots, wrinkles, and can expose you to skin cancer. Prevent this by using products that don’t just protect against the sun but that are packed with antioxidants. Using a sunscreen like EXTREME PROTECT SPF 30 will provide superior protection against UVA and UVB rays while also providing an antioxidant-rich protective barrier, giving you the ultimate protection. You should also switch to products that have ingredients like l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Our SUPER SERUM ADVANCE+ is the perfect choice because it has a potent antioxidant that helps with photo-protections and anti-inflammation. It not only minimizes redness, but it helps with anti-aging and reverse any damage from sun exposure.
4. Beat the heat with a cooling treat With so much time spend out and about during these hot summer days, nothing sounds quite as good as a cool, refreshing burst of hydration. Our COOLMINT REVITALIZING MASQUE provides just that and more. This product is enriched with aloe vera and is excellent for skin that needs some extra love. It minimizes inflammation, irritation, and it’s great to use after an unwanted sunburn. COOLMINT REVITALIZING MASQUE is also packed with hyaluronic acid – nature’s most powerful hydrator. This masque will keep your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed after a long day spent basking in the sun.
Summer is the time to enjoy the great outdoors, spend time with friends and family, and go on adventures. It is also the time to stay focused on your skincare routine and switching it up to keep your skin healthy and glowing, all summer long. Need to get your hands on the products mentioned above?
