The skin prefers to remain in a consistent temperature, as changes in the climate can be a shock to your system. The skin barrier is disrupted during seasonal transitions, making it prone to irritation and inflammation. During the shift from colder to warmer weather, oil gets trapped on the surface of the skin – leaving it greasy and heavy. If you are acne-prone, you may experience breakouts.

How to Care for Your Skin in Summer

Sunscreen

SPF is a mandatory and should be used on the face daily, regardless of the season. Sunrays increase the risk of skin cancer and expose you to premature aging. It’s very important that your sunscreen has not expired, which can easily happen if it has been sitting in your cupboard since last year. When buying a new sunscreen, check that it has both UVA and UVB in the product and go for one that is at least an SPF 30. Apply the cream 20 or 30 minutes before going out and exposing your skin to the sun, and if you are going to be out for the day, reapply every 1 – 2 hours especially if you will be swimming. Sunscreen will minimize sunspots and aging effects such as fine lines and wrinkles. For those of you with oily skin, gel-based sunscreens are available.

Get a Lighter Moisturizer

Most winter moisturizers are thick and greasy. If you use this type of moisturizer in summer, it will likely lead to oily-looking skin, blocked pores and breakouts. You could put them away for the season, or simply use them on dry areas of the body such as the feet. Consider switching to a light lotion or serum for your summer beauty routine. In the hotter months, your skin needs products that will allow it to breathe naturally and control the excess sebum. For normal skin types, water-based moisturizers are best. On the other hand, for extremely oily and acne-prone skin, it is recommended to use facial sprays that are rich in minerals. If your skin is only a little bit oily, a gel-based moisturizer is your best option.

Cleanse and Exfoliate

Make sure to stick with the basic principles of cleansing and toning each night before bed. Sweat causes the pores to open up and this leaves them susceptible to absorbing dirt, which can cause blackheads. A toner will help to close those pores after cleansing the face. If you are experienced dry, dull or calloused skin during the summer months, you are not alone. By exfoliating your face and body, you can shed the upper layer of dead skin cells – resulting in that radiant glow of healthy skin.

By sticking to the above tips, you can give your skin the tender love and care that it needs to survive the summer. By consistently moisturizing, cleansing and exfoliating your face, you will achieve a radiant complexion, keeping the blackheads and breakouts at bay. As you bask in the sunshine, your skin will glow with a fresh and youthful beauty, protected from the sun’s harmful rays with your sunscreen.
