• Skin Products for Summer


    Summer Skin Care ProductsA while back we talked about what kinds of skin products that are uniquely needed during the dry, harsh winter months in places that have four distinct seasons (or even one long winter season, for the more unfortunate). Now that the summer is coming up, it’s going to mean knowing that the weather in your particular area can do to your skin. After all, much like the winter, some of us are going to have a very long, hot summer! It’s time to start thinking about what kinds of skin care products you’ll need this summer, so here are a few tips on what you’ll need as the weather gets sunnier.


    Don’t Dehydrate! Use Moisturizer

    While the air during the winter is drier and makes your skin dehydrate very easily, the summer sun can be just as bad at dehydrating your skin, if not worse – even if you’re in a humid climate. For your skin care routine, make sure you use a moisturizer in the morning to help hydrate your skin (one that includes an SPF, preferably). At night, before you go to bed, a wrinkle cream or night cream will help to rehydrate your skin while at the same time transferring much-needed antioxidants that will help to defend against the damage that long-term sun exposure has done.

    Always Use Sun Block Throughout the Year

    We’ve told you about the necessity of sun block to guard against the harsh rays of the winter sun, so of course you’ll need it during the summer as well! For summer sun block, however, you want to look for different kinds of qualities. Summertime means a lot more exposure to the sun, and you’ll probably be more active in the warmer weather. So make sure you look for a higher Sun Protection Factor in your sunscreen, makeup, and moisturizer. No matter what your summer plans are, make sure your skin products are waterproof or made for active people – they’ll stay on your skin and protect it longer.
