As the temperatures start heating up and the days get longer, not only is it time to put those winter coats away, but it’s also time to put away those heavy moisturizers. Transform your skin for summer by following these steps.
Although you should be wearing sunscreen year round, it’s especially important during the summer when the sun is out much longer and harmful UVA and UVB rays are abundant. After washing your face in the morning, apply moisturizer and then apply SPF as your last step to help prevent skin cancer and help your skin look healthier and younger.
After hiding from the harsh winter conditions under layers, you’re going to need some exfoliation to get your skin in shape for summer. We recommend using the egg-shaped Scrubby to gently slough off all of the dead winter skin and allow newer, healthier skin to come to the surface. Scrubby’s non-scratch abrasion is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types to get the exfoliation they need.
Swap out Heavy Moisturizers
Now that the air is warmer and a little less dry, those heavy moisturizers may not be the best option for your skincare routine. Using products that are too thick when your skin doesn’t need that extra moisture can potentially cause breakouts. Consider switching to a moisturizer that is lighter and less dense, but always be cautious and speak to your dermatologist before introducing new products into your skincare routine.
Your skin is a reflection of what you’re putting in your body. If the summer sun has you dehydrated, your skin will also be in need of extra moisture. Always be sure to drink plenty of water during the day to keep your body and skin happy and healthy.
With hotter temperatures comes more sweat and with more sweat comes the higher possibility of breakouts. After a prolonged period of sweating, whether you were at the beach or hitting the gym, make sure to wash your face and body as soon as possible to minimize the amount of acne-causing bacteria that is sitting on your skin.
With a few adjustments and the right tools, transitioning your skincare routine from winter to summer is an easy way to ensure your skin is as healthy as possible.
