Summer Skincare: Staying Balanced

As the seasons shift, many of us notice that our skin experiences seasonal breakouts, shifts in how oily we’re getting on various parts of our faces, and other issues as we settle into summertime. Seasonal changes are real, due to a combination of changes in our activities as well as our body’s response to the environment.

Here are our top 3 easy solutions to address common summertime skin changes without having to upend your entire skincare routine:

Tip 1: Really Pay Attention to Evening Cleansing

After a long day out in the sun covered in sunblock, or just spending time outdoors, it’s tempting to skimp on your evening cleansing routine, especially if you haven’t worn makeup that day.

However, if you’ve been carefully applying and reapplying sunscreen all day, it can lead to more congested skin especially when combined with natural oils, sweat, and the heat. We recommend using our Nourishing Cleanser followed by our Refreshing Tonic on a cotton pad to ensure your skin is thoroughly cleansed at the end of your day.

Tip 2: Nourish Your Chest, Hands, and Neck

Our chest, hands and neck are often left exposed to the sun and the elements all summer long. If you’re already careful about caring for these areas with the same level of attention as your face, great! If not, we encourage you to spend more time protecting them from the sun and adding enriched body care to your routine.

These areas have thin, delicate skin and can show signs of UV damage and aging more quickly than we realize. Our Body Care products are specifically designed to provide maximum nourishment to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.

Tip 3: Help Reverse Sun Damage

Sometimes, a little extra sun exposure happens. It’s something we’d recommend avoiding as much as possible, but it’s just part of life during the summer. Our best tip to help speed up recovering from sun damage is to use age-defying products that are rich in antioxidants and have ingredients that are designed to prevent fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging.

The aging of your skin has a lot to do with the combination of genetics together with environmental exposure, and less to do with how many years you’ve lived. Incorporating our Bio-Lifting Serum and our Advanced Day and Advanced Night Treatments can help reverse visible signs of excess sun exposure.
