A common mistake that people make is following the same skincare regime all year round. Just like you need to change up your wardrobe from season to season, the same goes for your self-care routine. During the warmer months, we spend a lot more time outside, with our face in the sunshine, so our skin needs a boost of protection and regeneration. A fitting product rotation helps your skin adapt to the new weather and all its perks.

As a rule, Summer is all about careful cleansing and plentiful hydration. The hot and humid weather is not only unpleasant, but it also means the chances of getting a myriad of complexion woes are pretty high. Oily skin gets oilier, and dry skin gets patchy. There are breakouts, rashes, and roughness, and that unwelcomed acne that just won't go away. Before you panic and decide to hibernate until fall arrives, keep in mind that all it takes is a few tweaks to your current skincare routine to keep your complexion clear and bright all the way.

To help you out, we break down four essential tips for healthy summer skin, including the ingredients to keep on hand.


No matter the forecast, sunscreen is the one step you should never skip before heading outdoors for the day. But especially during Summer, you should lather up your face, neck, and body with your favorite sunscreen. Many factors can go into choosing the correct SPF for each of us. The complexion, skin type, and even age are all major influencers. If you are not sure which is the best SPF for you, check out our blog post and learn more about it.

Don’t skip Moisturizing

With the heat, your skin might be feeling a little more oily, and you might think you do not need to add any extra moisture to it. But don’t forget that the harsh sun rays can dry out your skin by stripping away its natural oils. When that happens, your body's response is to increase sebum production, which can lead to breakouts. In addition, sun exposure can also cause early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. So be sure to moisturize your skin all year round and aim for a lightweight moisturizer during the summer. Lightweight moisturizers typically use humectant ingredients that attract water to the skin and secure an all-day healthy glow.

Antioxidant-rich serums

There’s a setback that comes with that lovely summer tan: excess free radicals. Free radicals are chemicals that cause skin damage in the form of breakouts, hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, and early aging. The best way to tackle it is to regulate your intake of antioxidants. Antioxidants stand for anti-aging and not only help firm your skin, but they also help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. They are responsible for stimulating blood flow and encouraging cell multiplication rapidly, making them a key ingredient in most skincare products. During Summer, our skin requires an extra dose of these safe-keepers daily to remain damage-free. When choosing products rich in antioxidants, look out for serums and creams with green tea extracts and added vitamin C and A.

Gentle Exfoliation

Exfoliation is a requisite in every skincare routine. But during warmer months you want to do it more carefully. As much as your skin may feel oilier with the heat and humidity, it is important to avoid using harsh or abrasive scrubs or exfoliants to remove excess oil. This can disrupt your epidermis barrier and make your skin more sensitive and drier, triggering rashes and acne. During Summer, opt for a chemical or gentle physical exfoliant instead, like salt scrubs with antibacterial formula treatments. As usual, make sure your exfoliant of choice doesn’t clash with other active ingredients in your routine. And after you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating body cream to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with an SPF moisturizer.
