Summer is right around the corner — which means that our skincare routines will need to be adjusted for the warmer weather. We all love to soak up the sun, but the reality is that we need to ensure our skin is properly cared for so it isn’t damaged in the process. Here are our top five tips for keeping your skin looking and feeling fresh all summer long:
1. Keep Your Skincare Routine Light
We should have a skincare routine all year long, but it should be adjusted with every seasonal change. Your summer skin will naturally have more moisture locked in your pores, so you won’t need to use heavy creams like you might for your dehydrated winter skin. If you’re looking for a lightweight moisturizer that is perfect for summertime, check out Madi Bella’s balancing moisturizer. Not only is it perfectly lightweight for all of your upcoming summer activities, but its citrus smell is exactly what summer skin should smell like.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, ladies, and gents! The summer sun is powerful, and while it’s relaxing to sunbathe underneath it, you should always wear sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
3. Your Vitamin C Serum Should Be Your BFF
Omer Ibrahim, a board-certified dermatologist and co-director of clinical research at Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, told Allure Magazine, “Vitamin C is great year-round, but all the more important in the summer.”
So, grab some of Madi Bella’s popular Vitamin C serum to ensure your skin stays hydrated and healthy this summer.
4. Drink More Water Than Usual
You read that right: one of the most important summer skincare tips is to drink water. While we love skincare products, it’s also imperative that you hydrate your body from the inside out.
5. Exfoliate More
You could seriously damage your gorgeous skin if you over-exfoliate, but you should exfoliate more than you would in colder months. Exfoliation will scrub away dead skin cells, leaving you with rejuvenated and fresh skin. Listen to your body! We recommend exfoliating two days a week if you're experiencing oily summer skin. If you're planning on exfoliating more in the summertime, slowly increase the amount, so you don't strip your skin of its natural oils.
