With summer right around the corner and the weather finally starting to heat up, there’s a few changes to your skincare routine that you should make to ensure your skin stays clear and glowing all summer long. Summer means a lot more oily, sweat and humidity sitting on your skin all day - so you need to make sure you’re changing your skincare routine accordingly.
1. Double Cleanse
Make sure you remove the buildup of all makeup, dirt and debris after spending long days in the heat and humidity. One cleanser is fine in the morning, but at night you should definitely double cleanse. We love our Better Bean Clean Face Coffee Cleanser to use in the morning because it leaves our skin feeling clean and fresh.
At night, start your double cleansing routine with a rich oil cleanser like the Symphony Softening Cleansing Oil from Adore Cosmetics. Make sure you massage the oil into the skin for at least a minute to help remove impurities from your pores. Once you’ve finished, follow up with a nice foaming cleanser like the Better Bean Clean Face Coffee Cleanser for super fresh and clean skin, perfect after a long summer day.
2. Stay Hydrated on the Inside and Outside
It’s so easy to become dehydrated in the summer - the constant heat and sweat can cause you to lose water, fast. So make sure you’re keeping yourself hydrated by drinking at least eight glasses of water daily, more if you’re outside in the heat.
It’s also important to make sure you keep your skin hydrated, too. So use a hydrating but lightweight serum or cream day and night to ensure your skin stays soft all summer long.
For mornings, a Vitamin C serum is essential for brightening the skin. We love the Lighten Up Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum because it also uses rosehip and organic green coffee for revitalized, brighter and more even toned skin. A must-have for summer!
For the evenings, you can use something a little thicker to sink in overnight. Our Rich and Creamy Moisturizing Night Cream is packed with skin-loving ingredients so you can wake up to soft and soothed skin.
3. SPF All Day, Every Day
SPF is super important to wear year-round, but even more so in the summertime when the sun’s rays are at their hottest! We suggest applying this before the Vitamin C serum and reapplying your SPF throughout the day to ensure you’re adequately protected.
4. Multi mask
Switch up your masking routine and try multi-masking. By targeting different skin concerns on different parts of your face, you’ll get better results! Try a mud mask like the Café con Leche Hydrating Mask to deep clean and hydrate dry areas. Then, use an exfoliating mask to remove dead skin cells, dirt and debris on areas with clogged pores and dull skin. Masking at least once a week will keep you skin clean, clear, and healthy, so you can wear less makeup during the summer.
