Your Summer Skincare Routine Perfected
Sunny days are here, which means summer has finally arrived! A fresh chapter and new changes are waiting for you, but there’s one thing you should never leave behind: your skincare routine.
As the temperature rises, it’s easier for you to sweat. Too much oil and sweat on your face is a recipe for an acne disaster you’ll want to avoid. While you may still be practicing a good skincare routine (which is great) it’s important to note that some of your products are not suitable for summer.
Your winter skincare routine likely involved products with thick textures to retain moisture in your skin. Applying these during summer doesn’t let your skin breathe and can lead to acne formation. Here’s how to stay glowing and hydrated this sunny season.
1. Use a Hydrating Cleanser
Put away your thick cleansers and replace them with hydrating ones. The dense consistency of the former can overwhelm your skin, removing the moisture and drying it out. Switching to a lightweight and gentle cleanser can keep your skin hydrated and fresh.
AlumierMD’s HydraBoost is a perfect addition to your summer skincare routine. This hydrates and maintains the pH balance of your skin, leaving it smooth and silky. It even has a yucca seed extract that gently cleans and removes the impurities on your face!
2. Summer is For Toners and Serums
One standard skincare tip is that you don’t end cleansing with just a cleanser; you should continue with applying toner to your skin to fully remove impurities from your pores. You’ll be surprised when your cotton pad suddenly turns dark after applying this product—it shows just how much dirt remains on your face!
After you apply toner, it’s time to target the main concerns of your skin. Sun ray exposure leaves your skin vulnerable to wrinkle formation, uneven skin tone, and leathery texture. Fortunately, these issues can be treated with serums! AlumierMD offers a variety of serums that target anti-aging, brightening, and erase hyperpigmentation.
3. Switch to a Lightweight Moisturizer
Next, change your current moisturizer to a lightweight one. This allows your skin to breathe better compared to thicker creams. Water-based or gel moisturizers provide optimal hydration while keeping your pores free!
Since summer temperatures are hot, bringing AlumierMD’s HydraLight everywhere you go is a great idea. This moisturizer contains hydrating ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate, aloe, and niacinamide that will form a barrier to retain moisture in your pores.
4. Protect Your Summer Skin With Sunscreen
You shouldn’t leave the house without these three things: your phone, keys, and your sunscreen.
You should be applying sunscreen every day, regardless if it’s sunny or not, as it is the only protection you have against the broad spectrum of the sun’s rays. Before you go outside, apply sunscreen with an SPF value of at least 30. Make sure to re-apply every after two hours because sweating washes away the product.
5. Don’t Forget to Exfoliate Regularly
Unfortunately, sweating is inevitable during summer and can easily cause acne breakouts. When sweat dries, it leaves oil residue and sebum on your skin, causing bacteria to grow inside your pores. Sometimes, cleansing and toning your face are insufficient post-sweat cleaners since their ingredients are not meant to exfoliate.
Get your hands on the Lotus Scrub by AlumierMD. It uses lotus seed powder and microcrystalline cellulose that gently exfoliates your skin and removes impurities. Using this product regularly can smoothen and improve your skin tone!
6. Stay Hydrated During Hot Days!
As you sweat in the summer, you’re likely to lose a lot of bodily fluids and become dehydrated. Prevent this by drinking lots of water daily and not stopping after eight glasses!
Doing so keeps your body and skin well-hydrated as water replenishes lost fluids. In turn, you’re improving blood circulation, helping your skin to regenerate and repair skin cells. Water also flushes out toxins in your body, giving you a glowing skin tone!
7. Improve Your Diet
“You are what you eat!” This saying is overused, but it speaks the truth.
If you keep eating processed and junk foods, it’ll be no surprise when your face breaks out. That’s why it’s a must to improve your diet to lessen acne formation on your skin. You’ll benefit from eating fresh, whole foods like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
Besides that, don’t forget to add vitamins to your system. Vitamin C helps in skin repair since it boosts collagen and antioxidant activity.
