Summer Skincare Saviors: SPF, Face Mists and More

Summer is officially here, and for us beauty lovers it means an updated skincare routine. While some people look forward to the summer’s humidity, rather than the drying effects of winter, summer heat opens up our pores and can lead to acne, hyperpigmentation, more oil production, and sunburn. 

What Is The Best Skincare Routine For Summer?

According to our estheticians and beauty experts, the best skincare routine for summer is one that covers sun protection, has light beauty products, and hydration along with your skin care concerns. 

Wear SPF

Sunscreen should be worn all year round. But since people are out and about under the sun more during the summer months, it’s important to ensure you’re protected from the harmful UV rays.

For the best protection, Dr. Seemal Desai, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology featured in an article on Bustle suggests looking for a sunscreen that has SPF 30 or higher.

Having SPF products for the body is a summer must-have, but for your facial beauty routine, swapping out your makeup foundation for a tinted moisturizer with SPF.

Have A Lighter Beauty Routine 

It goes without saying that a lighter beauty routine is a must for the summer. After all, if you’re out in the heat, the less heavy product on your skin, the better. Studies show that you’re more likely to produce more oil in the summer, you’ll want to use lighter skin care products. Specifically, products that have a gel or foam base. 

For those with oily skin, a water-based cleanser is a good, light substitute for oil based beauty products. 

Hydrate Your Skin

Hydrate your skin with facial mists and invest in quality lip care for your summer skin care routine. Your lips don’t have oil glands, so they can’t moisturize themselves, which is why hydrating lip balms with UV protection should be part of your beauty routine.

SPF will help protect your lips from the sun, and ingredients like antioxidants provide additional protection against UV light in addition to repairing skin.
