1. Swapping Your Moisturizer
Swapping your moisturizer out for a lighter one is key. A moisturizer with hyaluronic acid– or water-based formula is recommended for warmer weather. Skin is more dry in the winter; in the summer it holds more moisture. You don’t want anything too heavy for it will make your skin look greasy.
Exfoliating is important no matter what season it is. Exfoliating is removal is dead skin cells. Not doing so will most likely cause flaking. Shaving can also remove dead skin. Shaving can both make the skin feel smoother and allow for better penetration of the products you use afterward. Companies like Dollar Shave Club can deliver fresh razors to your door each month so you’ll have one less thing to worry about!
3. Don’t Forget About SPF!
SPF is a must do all year round that you simply cannot forget about! Now that the weather is getting warmer out it’s more of a chance that we’ll all be outside more. Make sure you know what works and what doesn’t work with your skin. It’s better to have two separate SPF moisturizers for face and body. What works for the rest of your body may not be compatible with your face. It may or may not be harmful but it’s never a good idea to risk it!
4. Cool Off!
Keep a face mist around to help cool off. Using a face mist can add extra moister for those really hot days. It’s filled with anti antioxidants and strengthens the outer layer of skin.
5. Take A Cold Shower
Hot showers after sun exposure can cause the skin to dry up and cause breakouts. Take a cold shower instead to close pores and prevent breakouts.
