The Ultimate Summer Skincare Guide for Sun and Fun
Keeping your skin healthy and glowing is always a priority, but it’s even more critical during summer. Longer days in the sun can dehydrate your skin, and warm-weather activities tend to mean more sweat, more oil, and faster skin cell production.
Summer should be all about sun and fun, not trouble for your skin! So, we’ve created this summer skincare guide to help you beat the heat and keep you glowing all summer. In addition, we’re sharing our favorite eye, face, and anti-aging tips and treatments so you can enjoy the sunshine with skin health in mind.
The Ultimate Summer Skincare Guide
By now, everyone knows that sunscreen is a summer skincare essential. Choose sunscreens with a minimum SPF of 30, provide lip protection, and deliver “broad spectrum” coverage. Protecting your skin from the sun helps prevent it from aging faster and decreases your risk of skin cancer.
Ever notice how you get more thirsty when it’s hot outside? The same goes for your skin, which can start to look dull and lifeless as dead skin cells get trapped on its surface. Exfoliating regularly helps bring out a bright and even skin tone, and applying plenty of good moisturizers keeps your skin looking vibrant. For best results, look for a product that uses natural plant extracts to nourish and moisturize your skin.
What to try: Our long-wearing Glowin™ Cream provides light and medium translucent coverage that’s 24-hour crease-proof and is a barrier against temperature changes and pollution. It delivers flawless, buildable coverage that’s ideal for hotter weather, and it’s a terrific primer for foundation and makeup.
Non-chemical peels are ideal for oil control, making them the perfect choice for hot summer days. If you want to replace shiny, greasy skin with a gorgeous sun-kissed glow, a gentle peel is your best bet. Your skin will look and feel youthful and refreshed, and you will, too.
What to try: Our 24K Gold Peeling Gel™ gently exfoliates your skin for exceptionally radiant skin and a softer, more toned look—but without the irritation that sometimes occurs with chemical peels. Its naturally brightening Bearberry plant extract helps diminish visible discolorations and evens your skin tone.
The skin under your eyes is the thinnest on your body, making it more susceptible to the effects of UV rays. Protecting your eyes with SPF and sunglasses is a top priority, but adding a cooling eye cream to your routine can help improve skin elasticity and tightness while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.
What to try: Our Beam Eye Gel™ is super cooling and helps set eye makeup, so it doesn’t run in the heat. Try putting it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. This incredibly light eye cream significantly diminishes puffiness and the appearance of dark circles as it instantly refreshes the skin around your eyes for a brighter look.
