When it comes to summer skincare, it’s essential to adjust your routine to protect your skin from the sun, humidity, and other seasonal factors. Here are some of the best skincare products to consider incorporating into your summer regimen and the reasons why they can benefit your skin:
Sunscreen is a must-have product all year round, but it becomes even more crucial during the summer. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF (30 or above) to shield your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Regular sunscreen application helps prevent sunburn, premature aging and reduces the risk of skin cancer. Many of our providers and estheticians love Alastin’s HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36! Not only does it protect your skin, but it also leaves a subtle glow and tint that is perfect for warm weather!
Swap your heavy winter moisturizer for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer during summer. Opt for water-based or gel formulas that provide hydration without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin. These moisturizers help maintain your skin’s moisture balance without clogging pores. A favorite at Revive is SkinMedica’s Ultra Sheer Moisturizer. This oil-free moisturizer has antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to hydrate oil-prone and sensitive skin types!
Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can brighten the skin, fade dark spots, and protect against environmental damage. Using a vitamin C serum in the summer can help even out your skin tone and counteract any pigmentation caused by sun exposure. Additionally, it can boost collagen production, leaving your skin looking radiant and youthful. SkinCeuticals is well known for its advanced vitamin C formulas! If you have oily or acne-prone skin, we recommend SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF, it reduces oiliness, refines skin texture, and visibly improves skin clarity and fine lines.
Switch to a gentle, lightweight cleanser that effectively removes dirt, sweat, and excess oil without stripping your skin’s natural moisture. Avoid harsh cleansers that can disrupt your skin’s barrier function and opt for pH-balanced formulations that leave your skin feeling refreshed and clean. SkinMedica’s Facial Cleanser is excellent for all skin types while removing environmental pollutants, excess oil, and makeup, and hydrating and refreshing skin.
Remember, besides using the right skincare products, it’s crucial to stay hydrated, seek shade during peak sun hours, and wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses to further safeguard your skin from the sun’s harmful rays! Shop your summer essentials in-store at one of our premier locations!
