5 BEST SUMMER SKIN CARE TIPS 2023

5 BEST SUMMER SKIN CARE TIPS 2023

With summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time to start thinking about your skincare routine for the hotter months. It is very common to switch your products up a little this time of year, as with excess oil and stickiness on the skin, using more lightweight products that will still get the job done will keep your skin happy and comfortable all summer.

If you are looking to summer-proof your skincare routine, it is important to choose something that will keep your skin clean and hydrated but won’t add any extra weight or texture. Switching your cleanser to a formula that will eliminate oil a little better, introducing a clay mask or reaching for a lighter moisturiser can help. Above all, the number one summer skincare essential that everyone should be using is….. sunscreen. An absolute must-have! Here are 5 quick tips that will “summerfy” your skin!

 

1. Deep cleanse your skin

We should all be double cleansing every time we reach for our cleanser, but...If you are one of the naughty people that are not yet doing this, now is the time to start. Making sure you double cleanse is the first way to take care of your skin this summer. The skin can have excess oil, sweat and grime in the hotter months, so remember that the first cleanse will cleanse the day away, and the second will cleanse your skin. This is important for preventing congestion and breakouts and will ensure that your skin is squeaky clean and ready to absorb the goodness you are about to apply to your products.

Cosmedix Purity Solution

This beautiful cleanser will deep clean and purify without drying out your skin. Removes excess oil, makeup, sunscreen and environmental impurities while delivering key nutrients and antioxidants to keep skin clear and radiant.

Simply Massage the face, neck and décolleté with light, circular motions until the product is evenly distributed and areas of congestion have been thoroughly addressed. Moisten hands and apply water to all areas where the product was applied. Add water as needed to create a milky/cloudy appearance, then rinse and remove the product thoroughly from the skin.

2. Antioxidant it up!

Summertime always means time in the sun!! This is so good for the soul but… not so good for our unprotected skin. Unfortunately, with sun exposure comes UV damage. Protect your skin cells this summertime with an antioxidant serum, which will help fight against free radical damage and skin ageing, keeping your skin glowing and healthy all year round.

Grown Alchemist Detox Serum

We love this lightweight, oil-free, instantly absorbed serum which is recommended for daily use. This unique naturally derived Antioxidant+3 Complex protects the fibroblasts from irreparable DNA damage caused by not only traditionally targeted oxygen free radicals. but also Carbon and Nitrogen free radicals.

To use - Take 2-3 drops Morning and night, warm between fingers, and smooth into facial skin with either gentle stroking or patting movements. It can be applied over the orbital bone and around the eye contour area.

 

3. Reach for lightweight or gel Moisturisers

Sometimes in the summertime, certain creams and products can feel a little heavy on the skin. If we don’t love the feel of something, we tend to give it a miss, which is a huge no-no! To ensure you keep up with your skincare during the summer, using products that feel lighter and quickly absorbed can make your skin and routine very happy.

Apply to clean, dry skin morning and/or night on the face, neck and beyond.

 

4. Use a clay mask

We have all felt that hot, sticky, sweaty feeling that the summer sun brings, but did you know that the heat can also cause our sebaceous ( oil ) glands to pump out more oil? With more oil can come more congestion and breakouts and even affect how our makeup and other products sit on the skin. Help to slow down the oil and promote clear, clean pores by doing a regular clay mask. Once or twice a week will make a huge difference to your skin and give you a little chill-out time while it works its magic.

5. Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen!

This is it.. the be-all and end-all of summertime skincare. Wearing sunscreen EVERY day, no matter how long you are in the sun, is an absolute must for everyone! UV rates are much higher and more dangerous in summer, which not only means you are more likely to burn, but if hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone is a concern for you, not protecting your skin can make these conditions worse, so even if your skin is on the oily side, or you don’t like the texture of sunscreen, opt for a lighter or better still a mineral option that will not only protect but help treat certain skin concerns.

Skincare is super important all year round, and sometimes we need to tweak it a little to suit the change of climate. Just remember that this is perfectly normal and actually interesting for the skin to try something new from time to time. With these few tips, your skincare routine will not skip a beat this summer while staying happy, healthy and hydrated. It’s time to show off your summertime Glow!!
