Sun’s out, fun’s out! Summer is in full swing and that means the temps are high and your skin is probably experiencing some changes. This is no time to get lax on your skin care regimen. Here are our top 3 tips and products to get you through the season.
A good SPF will always be our #1 product in the summer. Apply liberally and remember to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day. In the morning, always apply moisturizer, then apply SPF on top, before your make up. Bonus points for makeup that also contains SPF. We recommend Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46, a chemical free SPF that is lightweight and absorbs quickly.
2) During summer, it's best to swap out heavier creams for lighter serums, as our sweat and oil glands can become more active in the warmer months. Using a hydrating serum packed with protective antioxidants is the best way to keep your skin happy and healthy. We recommend SkinCeuticals C+E Ferulic, used underneath SPF every morning.
3) Exfoliation is key. Keep skin smooth and glowing by exfoliating the face and body 2-3 times a week during the summer. Exfoliating not only helps the surface of the skin look glowy, but it also has anti-aging benefits as it helps with cell turnover. We recommend SkinMedia AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser.
