Summer is a fun time of year, but it can also take its toll on our skin. The sun’s rays, rising temperatures, and increased humidity can all affect the health of our skin if we’re not careful. That’s why transitioning your skincare routine from spring to summer is essential for keeping your complexion looking healthy and beautiful. At Soul Aesthetics, we know how important it is to keep your skin in tip-top shape, so here are some tips for making sure that you make the transition without compromising on results:
First, start by gradually introducing lighter products, such as hydrating mists or serums, instead of heavy creams. The humidity in the air can increase oil production, so lightening up on your moisturizing products will help keep your skin from becoming too oily. Additionally, switch out any heavier exfoliating treatments with lighter ones since too much exfoliation can cause irritation in the warmer months.
Next, add sunscreen to your routine! This is especially important if you’re spending lots of time outdoors. Look for sunscreens with an SPF of at least 15, and make sure it provides both UVA and UVB protection. Make sure to apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before heading outside and reapply every two hours or after swimming/sweating.
Finally, don’t forget about exfoliation! Exfoliating is critical for maintaining a healthy and glowing complexion, so make sure you incorporate it into your weekly routine. Look for gentle chemical exfoliants such as lactic acid, which will remove dead skin cells without irritating sensitive skin.
