Protecting your skin is paramount so make sure you have an SPF and antioxidant in your routine to shield the skin from UV rays and fight free radical damage. You’ll still need to exfoliate but this is not the season for harsh acids and home peels. Instead, reach for gentle enzymatic exfoliators that nibble away dead skin cells for smoother skin.
Stay hydrated with hyaluronic acid rich serums that will capture moisture in the skin for a plumper appearance. Try to apply them in a humid environment for even more hydration (a steamy bathroom post-shower is perfect). A refreshing mist is also a delicious addition to your summer routine to cool things down.
And finally, a good mask doesn’t ever go amiss. If you’ve got a little too sunkissed, once the burn has completely cooled, applying a rich cream mask will aid healing and reduce inflammation. To target summer breakouts, look for clay or peat-based masks that will draw out any impurities and excess oil.
