Summer is a season of sun-kissed days, outdoor adventures, and a carefree attitude. However, it can also be a challenging time for your skin, with the heat and humidity causing a range of skin concerns. Therefore, it is essential to take extra care of your skin during this season. In this blog, we will discuss the dos and don’ts of summer skincare and provide tips on how to keep your skin healthy and glowing during this season.
The Dos of Summer Skincare:
1. Wear Sunscreen:
The most crucial step in any summer skincare routine is to wear sunscreen. Exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can lead to premature ageing, sunburn, and even skin cancer. Therefore, it is essential to use sunscreen with a high SPF (at least 30) and reapply it every two hours. Our Mattifying Sunscreen mousse SPF 50 is perfect for the summer season as it provides broad-spectrum protection, is lightweight, and is non-greasy.
2. Stay Hydrated:
The heat and humidity during summer can cause dehydration, which can affect your skin’s health. Therefore, it is essential to drink plenty of water and keep your skin hydrated. Our Honey Lavender Face Mist is a perfect summer essential as it helps keep your skin hydrated and refreshed throughout the day.
3. Cleanse Your Skin Regularly:
Summer can make your skin oily and prone to breakouts, so it’s essential to cleanse your skin regularly. Our Citrus Blast & Limepearl Face Wash is perfect for summer as it removes excess oil and dirt without stripping your skin’s natural oils.
4. Use Lightweight Products:
During summer, your skin needs lightweight and non-greasy products to avoid clogging your pores. Our Argan & Berries Shower Gel is perfect for summer as it is lightweight, hydrating, and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean.
5. Exfoliate Regularly:
Summer can cause a buildup of dead skin cells on your skin’s surface, making it look dull and dry. Therefore, it is essential to exfoliate your skin regularly to remove the buildup and reveal brighter and smoother skin. Our Charcoal Peel Off Mask helps remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.
The Don’ts of Summer Skincare:
1. Don’t Over-Exfoliate:
While exfoliating is essential for summer skincare, it is equally important not to overdo it. Over-exfoliating can lead to skin irritation, redness, and dryness. Therefore, it is best to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week and avoid harsh scrubs.
2. Don’t Forget to Moisturize:
While you may think that moisturizing your skin during summer will make it more oily, it’s essential to remember that hydration and moisturization are different. Your skin still needs moisture, even during summer, and using a lightweight moisturizer can help keep your skin hydrated without making it greasy. Our Aqua Lite Gel Cream with Hyaluronic Acid is a perfect alternative to a heavy moisturizer as it provides hydration and helps soothe your skin.
3. Don’t Touch Your Face:
During summer, your skin can produce more oil and sweat, which can lead to breakouts. Therefore, it is essential to avoid touching your face frequently as it can transfer bacteria and oil from your hands to your face.
4. Don’t Forget to Protect Your Lips:
Your lips can also be affected by the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can cause dryness and even sunburn. Therefore, it is essential to use a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips during summer.
5. Don’t Stay in the Sun for Too Long:
While it’s tempting to spend long hours under the sun during summer, it’s important to remember that prolonged sun exposure can be harmful to your skin. Therefore, it’s best to limit your time in the sun, especially during peak hours 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and seek shade when possible.
