As the seasons change, we rush to hide warm sweaters and coats, giving way to light dresses and blouses. But does the change in dress code put a check mark on your summer-ready bucket list?
It should be remembered that rising thermometers dictate not only clothing, but also facial skin care. Our skin is alive and breathing, so it reacts to even the slightest changes in the environment and temperature. Below we will share 5 easy tips on how to take care of your facial skin in summer.
Summer skin routine friend no. 1 - SPF!
Summer and sunbathing - an inseparable combination, right?
The damage of UV rays to the skin probably goes without saying - we all know that being outdoors without additional protection can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkles. The use of sunscreen is recommended all year round, and in the summer it should become an essential tool that needs to be reapplied every few hours. During the warm season, when the sun is at its strongest, choose a higher level of SPF and your skin will thank you.
For light textures - YES!
Breathable and unburdened skin - this is the motto that should be followed when planning facial skin care in the summer. Avoid greasy, hard-to-absorb creams that will leave a film on the skin on a hot summer day and prevent it from breathing. We say yes to light products that will moisturize perfectly and won't feel on the face.
The moisturizing function is no less important in the summer than in the cold period, so you can't go wrong by including a serum that will help the skin retain moisture.
Summer makeup basics - less is more
If in the winter we masked the reddened face more strongly and protected it from the cold, in the summer we should follow the opposite rule and let the skin breathe. If you're looking for a suitable foundation for summer , it's better to avoid heavy concealers and instead choose lighter water-based products or mineral powders. In this way, you will not only look natural, but also prevent the makeup from running into wrinkles.
Remember that foundation can do double duty in the summer – not only to mask, but also to protect your face from the sun. The sun protection of the foundation is indicated by the SPF number on the bottle.
Acidic remedies - only in the evening
Often, the facial routine is not complete without acidic products designed to solve various skin problems. However, in summer, these products should travel to the repertoire of evening products in order to avoid contact with UV rays and possible skin damage.
True, not all acidic products should be avoided during the day. The active substance niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3) will not cause skin sensitivity in direct contact with sunlight, on the contrary, it will help strengthen the skin's protective barrier, regulate sebum secretion and even out the complexion.
Regular exfoliation is the key to glowing and smoother skin
As mentioned earlier, sunscreen is an extremely important step in summer skin care. But what happens when it mixes with sweat? It creates the perfect environment for clogging pores and acne breakouts.
In order to avoid this, it is recommended to exfoliate the skin of the face in the summer, which will help prevent this unpleasant process.
However, it is important to remember that facial skin scrubbing should be handled with care - not to scrub too often, and also avoid the procedure if the skin is sunburned. When scrubbing your face at home, choose gentler scrubs that won't damage the skin barrier and won't leave an unpleasant feeling of stretching.
