OK, but I still stand by sunscreen being the absolute best thing you can do for your skin.

5 Summer Skincare Tips You Have to Try

Here are the best skincare tips for the summer!

1. Use Products That Won’t Clog Pores

During the summer, we can be exposed to more environmental factors that clog our pores.

This makes it highly important for any product you use to be non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores.

This will prevent skin conditions such as acne, irritation, and blackheads

2. Wash Your Face Well

Washing your face is already a highly important step in skincare. 

Even if you do not wear makeup, you must use a good pH-balanced cleanser with ingredients that remove dirt without being overly stripping.

Cleansers should have ingredients strong enough to remove waterproof sunscreen, and environmental impurities while supporting the skin barrier with ingredients like ceramides or hyaluronic acid.

3. Don’t Skip the Moisturizer 

We all love to moisturize during those dry winter months but it is just as important in the summer!

Lack of moisturizing can lead to an excessive production of oil to overcompensate, which in turn causes acne and breakouts.

Make sure you are still moisturizing in the summer!

Try a lightweight lotion or gel-based moisturizer if it feels more comfortable on the skin!

4. Reduce Exfoliation

Harsh heat and weather already cause natural exfoliation, especially in the summer!

Furthermore, you definitely cannot exfoliate sunburned skin, as this will disrupt and ruin the skin barrier.

5. Use Lighter Makeup

Use Lighter makeup to make sure your skin does get clogged up by products!

This is particularly important if you are going to be sweating, as you will need to Re-apply sunblock on top.

Quick Sun Protection Tips! 

And because I could not resist, here are five summer sun protection tips that you have to try if you are going outside!

Make sure to make sunscreen a part of your daily routine.

Use Protective Clothing

Some clothing now comes with an SPF protecting factor, meaning it will keep you safer!

Additionally, any hat, sunglasses, or light-colored long sleeve shirt or pants will protect you from direct sun exposure.

Find Shade When Possible

It’s best to avoid the sun when it is most intense, from 10 am to 4 pm.

When in doubt, do without.

But if it is impossible to be indoors during these hours, try to find shade!

Use Waterproof Sunblock 

In the summer we may go swimming, walking, hiking, running, etc! 

But this means sweat and water will wear down our sunscreen.

Remember to use sunscreen that is waterproof and sweat-resistant!

Use Sunblock on Exposed Areas

Apply enough sunscreen to any areas that will be exposed to sunlight!

This means using the two-finger lines of sunblock for the face and a shot glass worth of sunblock for the body.

Plus, remember to protect the lips by applying sunscreen there or using a chapstick with SPF!

Reapply Sunscreen Sooner than 2 Hours

This is particularly true if you are going swimming or have an activity in which you sweat.

Reapply sunblock before the recommended 2 hours for maximum safety and protection.

The Takeaway

Summer skincare is about more than just sunblock.

(But it does very much include sunblock)

Kwep your skin healthy thus summer using these amazing tips!

And remember that sunscreen is the absolute best thing you can do for the skin!
