5 Skincare Adjustments for Summertime

5 Skincare Adjustments for Summertime

Summertime is just around the corner, so it's important to know what changes you need to make to your skincare routine. The basics remain the same, like wearing a hat and applying (and reapplying) sunscreen, but to avoid struggling with breakouts or increased risk for sun damage, you'll want to use these five tweaks.

Tip 1 - Don't Overapply Moisturizer

Adjust your moisturizing routine but don't stop moisturizing altogether. Use a little less moisturizer when you apply it to prevent breakouts OR select a moisturizer that isn't so heavy. A product like NeoGenesis Light Moisturizer is ideal for getting the benefits of a high-quality moisturizer but with a little less intensity. Still, don't overapply during the summer. 

Tip 2 - Switch Your Cleanser

Lighten up on your cleanser. If you're using a creamy cleanser, switch up to a lighter one (Just Say Ahh or NeoGenesis Cleanser are my faves) to effectively remove sweat, oil, and makeup. Heavy cream cleansers can lead to an increase in breakouts during the summer.

Tip 3 - Add Vitamin C NOW

We are prone to brown spots as we get more sun, so NOW is the time to apply Vitamin C REGULARLY. Vitamin C has brightening power and healing components on UV damage. But not all Vitamin C products are created equal! Formulas containing regular ascorbic acid will see about an 80-90% decrease in ascorbic acid content after just six days of opening the product. This means it actually turns into a pro-oxidant instead of an anti-oxidant. That's why I love Triple C+ Gold. It contains an ascorbic acid complex designed to keep ascorbic acid 100% stable over time. By conjugating ascorbic acid to gold, its bioavailability is increased drastically, and glutathione (a vitamin C precursor) helps to replenish ascorbic acid as it's broken down.

Tip 4 - Increase Exfoliation 

Exfoliation becomes even more important in the summer if you have oily skin but don't add it to your routine every day. Increase your exfoliation to a couple of days a week using alpha-hydroxy acids. Get Glowing Exfoliating Gel is a gentle AHA product with an 8% Alpha Hydroxy blend of five natural plant extracts, including blueberry fruit extract, sugarcane extract, orange fruit extract, lemon fruit extract, and sugar maple extract that contain four alpha-hydroxy acids.

Tip 5 - Keep the Second Shower Short

Keep the second shower shorter and cooler! We are often showering more than once in the summertime, which can be very drying to the skin. Keep that second shower shorter and more on the lukewarm side instead of hot.  

Apply these tips to your summer routine, and you'll be all set for great skin!

The lymphatic system works 24/7 to get rid of waste in the body. You could say, it’s the body’s housekeeper.

Ever notice the morning after consuming too much wine or salty snacks or food how puffy the eye area gets?
