Skin specialists are also at risk of getting any skin damage this season, however, their skin manages to stay clear and glowing all season long. Sure, it´s because of their knowledge and experience but they also have to work a bit harder to prevent breakouts and minimize sun damage during the summer months. That’s why, according to their experience we asked them to give us some skin care recommendations that they put into practice and provide them with great results to their skin:
1. Lighten up your skin-care routine.
The skin care specialist, Idalis Bailey affirms that your skin-care routine needs to be a little more lightweight because the heat and humidity of summer means you can swap out a heavier cleanser in favor of a gentle, foaming option,
2. Adopt a dual-purpose moisturizer.
To help lighten things up, Billie Radovic recommends switching to a combined moisturizer and sunscreen during the summer. Thicker moisturizers can lead to clogged pores, inflammation, and acne so a lightweight moisturizer with SPF of 30 or higher is enough.
3. Don’t stop moisturizing completely.
Skin Specialists say that despite the weather being hot and humid, you still need to moisturize, even if your skin already feels oily, you should always follow cleansing with a moisturizer, Dr Roly Borges says that you just need to pick a lightweight one that will help keep the outer layer nourished without feeling too heavy on your skin.
4. Invest in a solid vitamin C serum.
Vitamin C helps prevent hyperpigmentation, improve the appearance of fine lines, and can help with collagen production. So, Idalis Bailey recommends layering a few drops on your skin between cleansing and moisturizer.
5. Add an exfoliation skin-care step.
Skin care specialists are often reminding us not to over-exfoliate, but not in summertime, exfoliation is a must in this season; overall If you have oily skin, Billie Radovic suggests incorporating more exfoliation into your skin-care routine because it opens up blocked pores and remove oils that result in acne plus it feels nice and soothing on stressed-out summer skin.
6. Cut down your tub time.
Between workouts, beach days, and old summer sweat, many of us shower more than once a day during the summer. Idalis recommends keeping showers short because over-showering can lead to over-drying your skin, leading to inflammation and even summertime eczema.
7. Don’t forget to hydrate.
“Hydration is always important for our skin, but even more so in the summer,” says Idalis.
You should drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep hydrated and have great results in your skin.
8. SPF, SPF, SPF.
We saved the most important for last: Wear sunscreen. Each of our experts recommends getting spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on all exposed skin. “Don’t forget about hands, feet, ears, and lips and reapply it every couple of hours” Says Dr Roly Borges.
