Hot summer weather can often lead to sweat-induced clogged pores, dark spots from the sun, and other skincare concerns. Updating your skincare routine during the summer can help keep your skin cleaner and more hydrated to help avoid any summer skin troubles. We put together our top four tips to help you have the glowy, healthy-looking skin you crave this summer!
Tip 1: Choose the SPF That's Right for You!
The most important tip for taking care of your skin in the summertime is to use sunscreen! COSMEDIX offers four different SPF options to help you keep your skin protected all summer long:
- Peptide-Rich Defense: A lightweight Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 that helps smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles to promote a more radiant, youthful-looking complexion.
- Protect UV: A gentle, multipurpose Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizing Spray that provides daily, head-to-toe UV protection and hydration with an undetectable sheer finish.
- Hydrate+: A Moisturizing Sunscreen with SPF 17 that provides extra hydration to the skin, helps address signs of aging, and offers broad spectrum UV protection.
- Zinc Defense: A luxurious Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 that helps hydrate and protect skin from UVA and UVB rays with a natural, glowy-looking finish.
Tip 2: Wear a Lighter Moisturizer
Because the skin is *usually* not as dry in the warmer months, you often don’t need your thick winter moisturizer! Swap out your winter moisturizers for one of these lighter options for the summertime:
- Surge: An ultra-dewy Hyaluronic Acid Booster that deeply moisturizes dry, dehydrated skin with a specialized blend of three forms of Hyaluronic Acid (1.5%), Niacinamide, and Kiwi Fruit Water.
- Harmonize: A lightweight Microbiome Boosting Moisturizer that hydrates the skin with a Prebiotic that helps strengthen your skin’s natural defense for a softer, smoother, more supple-looking complexion.
- Shineless: A lightweight Oil-Free Moisturizer that's formulated specifically for oily and blemish-prone skin and helps reduce the appearance of shine while providing lasting hydration.
Tip 3: Refresh Your Skin with a Mist
Being able to refresh your skin throughout the day as the temperature rises will not only help you feel cooler, but a facial mist will also help your skin! Mystic is a skin-pampering Hydrating Treatment that provides daily, lightweight hydration and helps protect skin from environmental stressors with each misting spray.
Tip 4: Properly Wash Your Face
Because you naturally sweat more during the summer months, it is important that you properly clean any sweat off of your skin at night. We suggest double cleansing, starting with Purity Solution. This Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil is a two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser with a nutrient-rich blend of radiance-boosting oils that gently melt away dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities for a hydrated, healthy-looking glow. Once all makeup and impurities have been cleansed away, go in with a COSMEDIX cleanser of your choosing, such as Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser to gently exfoliate skin or Crystal Cleanse Hydrating Liquid Crystal Cleansing Cream to help soften the look of skin as it washes away daily impurities.
