Welcome to the season of sun-kissed days and warm nights! As the summer sun graces us with its presence, it's essential to adjust our skincare routine to keep our skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing. With a little extra care and some smart choices, you can enjoy the best of this beautiful season while safeguarding your skin from the potential pitfalls. In this blog post, we'll explore some effective and practical tips to help you take care of your skin during summertime, ensuring you have a radiant complexion all season long.
1. Sunscreen: Your Summer BFF
Nothing says summer skincare like sunscreen! UV rays can be harsh during summertime, leading to sunburns and long-term damage. Protect your skin with a broad-spectrum physical sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 30, and apply it generously to all exposed areas of your body. Remember to reapply every two hours, especially if you're spending time outdoors, swimming, or sweating. Check out our AlumierMD sunscreen products that provide powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Physical sunscreens reflect the suns rays vs many chemical based SPFs on the market which absorb the suns rays. All AlumierMD SPF’s carry the FDA shield “GRASE” Generally recognised as safe and effective.
2. Stay Hydrated
Hydration is crucial during the summer months. Apart from applying moisturiser daily, focus on drinking plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from within. Water helps flush out toxins and ensures your skin remains supple and glowing. Add lemon to your water to add detoxification and give your lymphatic system a boost!
3. Cleanse Gently and Regularly
With the heat and sweat, it's essential to cleanse your face regularly to remove dirt, oil, and impurities that can clog pores. Opt for a gentle cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils. Consider cleansing twice a day, morning and night, to maintain a fresh and clear complexion. Consider adding the AlumierMD clay refining mask, its perfect at removing excess sebum in the summer months!
4. Exfoliate for a Fresh Canvas
Exfoliation is key to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and allow better absorption of your skincare products. However, don't overdo it! Once or twice a week with a mild exfoliator is sufficient to achieve a fresh and smooth canvas for your summertime skincare routine. Consider adding AlumierMD Bright & Clear Solution which is suitable for all skin types. Containing Saliycilic and lactic acid, Lime pearl extract and Kakadu plum. Salicylic acid is oil soluble and penetrates deep into the follicle for a deep cleanse, lactic will slough away the surface dead skin cells and Kakadu plum contains Superox-C - the most oxygenated form of vitamin c that is bio-available.
5. Lightweight Moisturizer
Switch to a lightweight and non-comedogenic moisturiser during the summer. Heavy creams can feel suffocating and may lead to breakouts. Gel-based or oil-free moisturizers are perfect for providing the necessary hydration without weighing your skin down. Book in your seasonal skincare review with Kirsty!
