5 Tips for the Best Summertime Skincare Routine
Good skincare goes deeper than skin. It’s a mindset, a holistic approach that takes into account the interconnectedness of all the products we apply to our skin, the ingredients, and how well we keep up our seasonal skincare routine. Skincare is not one size fits all, and this becomes even more apparent as spring yields to summer.
As the sun becomes more intense, we all need to adapt and transition our routine. Because come summer, the last thing we’d want is to find out too late that we are unhappy with our complexion. With each day hotter than the last, our sweat glands will get more and more active, and our skin is likely to get oilier. Thanks to all that time we spend on the beach or indoors near the AC, we may find that our skin has entered a vicious cycle going from extreme oiliness to dehydration and back.
Rising temperatures mean it’s past time we update our skincare regimen in order to keep our skin continuously fresh, clean, and balanced. Here are 5 useful tips to own your summertime skincare routine.
1.Cleanse twice a day
Unless you are on vacation in a pristine bay, your skin will be exposed to gas exhaust from vehicles, dust from the street and from construction sites, debris, and more. In most cities around the world, the air will be super-hot and humid too – meaning more sweat and oil. To keep your summer skin naturally beautiful, cleanse twice daily. Seacret Deep Cleansing Facial Wash delivers a liquid wash for a gentle cleanse, effectively removing excess oil and impurities without drying the skin. Comes in full size for home and travel size for away.
2.Apply a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer
Put your thick creamy moisturizers away for a few months and use a lightweight formula throughout the summer. Seacret Essential Moisture Face Cream is a quickly-absorbed lightweight cream that provides all-day hydration for fresh and healthy looking skin. Its oil-free formula helps the skin to maintain its optimal moisture balance.
3.Moisturize at night
Don’t let summer laziness affect your skincare routine. Continue to moisturize at night regardless of your skin type. Use a product formulated for nightly use such as Seacret Intensive Moisture Night Cream. It’s enriched with grape seed oil to give dry skin the deep moisture it needs. If aging is a concern, use Seacret Rehydrate Vitamin-Rich Night Cream. It’s a peptide filled skin-boosting treatment that helps reduce signs of aging.
Regardless of your skin concerns and type, you must use SPF during summer months. (Truth is, you should use SPF even during winter, but in the summer it’s even more important). New and innovative sun protection products come in non-greasy textures and all-in-one formulas such as CC creams. You can use the lightweight Seacret CC cream for comfortable daily coverage, an even skin tone, and SPF15 protection.
5.Don’t forget your body
Exfoliate and moisturize your body regularly, especially if you go to the beach or spend a lot of time in AC-controlled environments. Use Seacret Dead Sea Bath Salt for deep exfoliation. Its unique blend of natural Dead Sea-origin minerals brings you a total at-home spa immersion and relaxation experience while exfoliating, cleansing, and softening your skin.
Apply Seacret Body Butter for the ultimate hydration and nourishment for all skin types. Choose from Honey & Milk, Pomegranate, and Ocean Mist formulations to bring your skin to perfection while enjoying your favorite scent.
