Top Skincare Tips for Summer
It’s summer, and as things heat up, it makes it more challenging to keep makeup from melting away. According to the pros, the best way to get a healthy glow in summer is to make skincare a top priority.
The first step is cleansing. Wash at least twice a day in the summer: once in the morning before applying makeup and once at night to clean away the sweat and dirt accumulated all day. Don’t skip this step if you’re in a hurry – makeup has the best chance to last when applied to clean, fresh skin. Choose a moisturizing cleanser that is formulated for your skin type.
Exfoliating is the next step, and it’s crucial. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells as well as dirt and pollutants that may become trapped in your pores. Clogged pores can lead to blemishes and prevent your skin from absorbing vital moisturizers and nutrients that keep it healthy and soft. Choose a gentle exfoliator and use it two to three times per week.
Toning is a step that many people skip, but it’s important for hydrating and balancing your skin. Again, choose a gentle toner that is formulated for your specific skin type.
Moisturizing is crucial in the summer, and for this step, you’ll need a product that does double – or even triple – duty. You can get UV protection, moisturizing, and all-over coverage in one step by choosing a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. Look for an SPF of at least 15 in a product that is formulated for your skin’s needs.
You can give your skin an extra boost by adding a serum to your nighttime routine. Look for a product that infuses antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients into your skin.
When it’s time to apply makeup – go light for summer. Choose products that multitask in cream and foam formulas rather than powders, which tend to clump when you sweat.
