After months of cold weather and frigid temperatures, spring knocked on our doors. We could finally have the much-needed break from dry, itchy skin and welcome the warmer air with open arms. But now it is time to prep your skin for sunnier days ahead as summer dawns on us. You might ask how?
Come summertime, and all of us think of packing our bags and setting out on holiday. But remember, summer is not the time to slack on your skincare routine. If you plan a holiday, make sure you have your skincare essentials packed and ready to go.
Today, we’ll tell you about the skincare regimen you must follow in summers to ensure your skin suffers minimum damage from the sweltering heat and the pore-clogging humidity. After all, nothing ruins a summer vacation faster than a sunburn. So, it is time for you to ditch your winter creams and switch up your skincare routine.
When transitioning from winter skincare to spring to summer, your skin may face the music if you don’t do it right. More than anything, you need to welcome the summer with open arms, all the while staying true to yourself.
Adopting a new skincare routine does not mean you discard what you believe. If you care about holistic wellbeing and prefer sustainably made products, you should settle upon ones that fit perfectly in your skincare palette.
Going lightweight (on your moisturizer) may just do the trick!
Use a lightweight moisturizer on your skin during spring and summers. While moisturizing your skin during winter was an excellent idea, you may want to change that up in the spring-summer season. Our skin tends to retain more water during these seasons, so you might want to swap your moisturizer for a lighter one with hyaluronic acid or water-based formula.
If you want a more holistic skincare palette, you can go for Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Body Moisturizer or the Forest Essentials Hydrating Facial Moisturizer SPF 25 – Sandalwood & Orange Peel. For daily wear, you can pick the Jose Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47, which will offer you twin benefits – hydration and protection.
Up your SPF game & let your skin keep its shine in the sun!
Next step in your skincare routine for this season – sunscreen! Keep your lotions and moisturizers separate from your sunscreen. A sunscreen of at least SPF 30 should be a staple in your skincare routine, whether it’s the scorching heat or a heavy downpour.
Also, don’t forget to reapply it every couple of hours. And more importantly, avoid stepping out during the peak hours of the day if given a choice.
If it’s a natural-looking coverage that you want to go for, Unsun Mineral Tinted SPF 30 Sunscreen will do the trick. For broad-spectrum protection, go for Paula’s Choice Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50. It has an array of antioxidants and soothing plant extracts to treat signs of aging while shielding from rays.
Keep breakouts at bay with EXFOLIATION!
When dead skin cells mix with sweat, grease, and product, they can clog pores and cause acne. Contrary to popular belief, exfoliation during the summer months can keep your skin radiant and glowing. Mild exfoliation twice a week will do the trick. It sloughs off the dead skin cells and unblocks pores. But, use gentle exfoliators with glycolic acid or enzymatic scrubs with fruit acids, such as papaya, pineapple, or pumpkin.
To exfoliate and cleanse your skin during summers, you can try brands like Neutrogena, Olay, L’Oréal Paris, and Bioderma. These exfoliating cleansers treat your skin to a deep cleansing regime every day to reveal clear, radiant-looking skin. They effectively clean your pores and dissolve dirt and oil every time you wash your face. Let your skin breathe with freshness all summer.
Soothe your skin to bring back the natural pink with the perfect CLEANSER!
Are you waiting to look your natural best after a day out in the sun? As the weather heats and turns different shades of warmth, a slightly more acidic cleanser will aid in the control of shine and sweat. It should keep your skin clean and sweat-free all day, which a more acidic one is more likely to do. You can pick up a gentle cleansing gel with aloe vera, glycerin, and green tea extract for its soothing properties. It will have a moisturizing effect on your skin and prevent irritation.
In terms of finding the perfect cleanser, you need to make sure that it suits your skin
type. If it’s vegan products that you want to opt for, try the Milk Vegan Milk Cleanser to
cleanse the skin without stripping it. You can also go for Kate Somerville Cleansers,
Charlotte Tilbury, Oskia, Dermalogica, or Aurelia facial cleansers which restore your
skin to its natural, healthy state with every wash. With rich botanicals and optimized
ingredients, these facial cleansers keep pores free of dead skin cells and impurities to
reveal and maintain your healthiest, most beautiful skin all day, every day.

SEASONAL BEAUTY SCOOP…
While you pick up products that best suit your skin, don’t forget about your cosmetics! Applying heavy foundations and concealers to your face can cause buildup and, in turn, breakouts. Using lighter products, such as a CC cream or mineral powder foundation, will help balance the extra oil production in the warmer months and leave your skin looking healthier.
The same is true for makeup remover: swap out your heavy cream-based ointment for a lighter option like micellar water.
It’s not every day that you get to celebrate your individuality, wear your confidence, and explore the world the way you wish. But here, you can adopt a routine that suits you and flaunt your skin as you intended. Discover yourself in the pink, red, yellow, green, and multiple hues that surround you and tint your life with beauty and wellness.
