Summer means hot sun, humid weather, beach parties, and excessive exposure to UV rays. These are the main reason why you need to up your skincare routine. With high heat, your skin produces more sebum, which increases oiliness on your face. This can cause the pores to get blocked, which in turn would lead to blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. Too much face time in the sun can also give way to burnt skin, rashes because of sensitivity, and itchy skin.
So what can you do? Include items in your everyday skincare regime that would provide safety from the harsh weather and UV rays. Here are some of the most beneficial products for the summers.
Step 1: Soothe Your Summer Skin
Imagine coming back from work, exhausted, with nothing more in your mind than jumping into a pool of cold water to get away from the heat. Since most of us don’t have the luxury of a pool, opt for these Heaven’s Melody Ice Globes Massager. The cold product is just what you need to cool up after a long, hot day, and it also works wonders for the skin. The massager decreases swelling, reduces puffiness, gets rid of inflammation and redness, minimizes pores, improves blood circulation so that your skin has more oxygen, and drains the lymph nodes. People who have recurring headaches and migraines also benefit because it soothes the temples.
All you have to do is place the ice globe in your freezer for 30 minutes, rinse with cold water and then massage away. You can also use it as a hot massager by placing the globes in hot water for two minutes and then rubbing them on your face.
Step 2: Never Skip Your SPF
The Olita Sun Essentials includes all the products you need in your purse, the car’s dashboard, and even your kids’ bags to protect your skin from sun damage. The 4-part kit consists of a hydrating sunscreen lotion, a moisturizing mineral lip balm, a dry rinse to clear up sand, and a soothing aftersun body serum, that brings back all the water content you have lost to the hot day.
The sunscreen provides 80 minutes of water resistance protection. Keep in mind that if you are in the water for longer, you should reapply the sunscreen after an hour for better protection.
Step 3: Opt For Hydrating Formula
Another important thing that most experts recommend is an anti-aging serum for your daily skincare routine. It is best to begin its use in your 20’s so that your face does not get any fine lines, wrinkles, or age patches as time passes by. The PURFECT Super Seed Anti-Aging Face Serum comprises 16 organic seed oils, revitalizing your facial skin like nothing else. It helps in balancing the pH and hydrating at a cellular level. It also improves collagen production so that your skin does not begin to deteriorate quickly. You will notice dark spots reducing and your skin texture becoming softer and more elastic.
Cleanse your face and let it dry. Then take 3-4 drops of the serum on your fingers and gently massage the face and neck until it is fully absorbed.
Step 4: Invest in Vitamin C
Vitamin C is said to be the main protector against UV rays. Hence, the reason why so many sunscreens come with the addition of vitamin C. The LaVigne Natural Skincare Vitamin C Serum is made from all-natural ingredients like fruits, plants, and tea leaves. With regular use, the serum can help protect your skin from the harsh effects of UV rays.
The presence of avocado and rosehip oil only further enhances the qualities of this serum by making the skin supple, soft, elastic, and blemish-free. All you have to do is apply the serum to clean your face after the application of a moisturizer. Be sure to add it to both your day and night routine.
Step 5: Don’t Forget the Scalp
Haircare is just as important as facial skin, so you should not ignore your scalp during the intense summers. Try the Orising Energetic Composition D Scalp Cleanser, made for scratchy scalps. The product is also ideal if you’re experiencing seborrhea, too much sweat, dandruff, and hair fall. It is made from ingredients that are the most beneficial for the skin on your head.
All you have to do is take out some in your hand and gently rub them into the roots. Leave on for 15 minutes, and then rinse. Wash your hair with shampoo like normal afterwards.
Step 6: Exfoliation is the Key
Exfoliating your skin is the best way to cleanse it from within. And if you want to try something more than your average scrub, the StriVectin Pro Glowfoliant Mix-In Microderm Crystal is the product we swear by. It helps gently remove the dry, dead skin while also restoring your skin’s natural glow. It contains AHAs for salon-like microdermabrasion so that your skin looks sparkly, soft and smooth.
Replace your regular scrub with this magical product and experience the difference in days!
Step 7: Max Out Benefits with Multipurpose Skin Products
If you have stepped into your 30s and haven’t begun using retinol, your skin will start aging really fast. ML Delicate Beauty Facial Retinol Moisturizer Cream can help ensure that your skin remains free from wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots and also maintains its elasticity. It also helps get rid of uneven skin tone and texture on the skin. Within a short span of use, you will notice that your dark circles are gone, your face looks fresh, and your neck has lost all the fine lines.
Before going to bed, take a pea-sized amount and apply it to clean skin. Let dry, and then carry on a routine.
Step 8: Use Noncomedogenic Makeup
Looking for makeup that stays on even when you are sweating in the sweltering sun? The Lord & Berry Pressed Powder is the finishing powder for you. The silky and luminous powder will give you the natural color and glow you need for the day. It is a non-drying formula that helps hide fine lines and minimize pores.
All you have to do is apply it with a large brush once you have put on all other makeup. You can do touch-ups as per need throughout the day.
