When the seasons change, so does your skin. There are a multitude of elements that impact your complexion, from temperature to humidity, wind, and UV exposure. And if you’re planning to travel this summer, trips to sunnier destinations brings further dramatic fluctuations that the skin is constantly having to adapt to.
So we’ve crafted a guide with 4 tips on how to prepare your skin for summer. We cover lighter textures, gentle exfoliation, sun protection, and the importance of hydration.
4 Tips On Preparing Your Skin for Summer
1. Go Lighter
Subtle changes to your skincare routine can help your complexion respond to external factors. If you’re keen on rich moisturisers during the winter, a lighter iteration is ideal to allow your skin to breathe. And if you have oily or acne-prone skin, consider a lightweight moisturiser to lessen your chances of clogged pores.
Our Boost Cleanse & Recovery Spray helps balance the complexion, control oil, and maintain moisture, while tackling blemishes and inflammation. Staying hydrated is non-negotiable, so be intentional about your moisturiser when the seasons change for an ongoing glow.
2. Gentle Exfoliation
During the summer months, your skin is prone to creating more oil, which means your pores are likely to become congested. To combat, exfoliation is a great solution. Our Enzymatic Cleanser & Mask works by dissolving deep-seated impurities and oil to decongest the skin and tighten the appearance of enlarged pores, whilst gently polishing the skin’s surface. It accomplishes all of this thanks to our unique Enzyme Duo Technology, which breaks down keratinised dead skin cells and debris and gently removes make-up. The Enzymatic Cleanser & Mask also includes hyaluronic acid, argan oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E, and next-generation gluconolactone to support even the most sensitive skin.
3. Correct And Protect
We can’t stress enough the importance of wearing sunscreen. And whilst it makes sense to wear SPF all summer long, you should be using it all day, everyday, no matter the season. One of the most obvious and notable benefits of sunscreen is that it protects your skin against the sun’s broad spectrum of harmful UV rays, but it also keeps the complexion even, helps protect against the visible signs of premature aging, and reduces the risk of skin cancer.
4. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
We spoke about lighter textures and the importance of hydration, but we can’t forget to mention that without adequate water intake, skin can appear dull and wrinkles and pores more prominent. Proper hydration levels help the skin become plump and improve its elasticity.
