Summer is the season to relax and enjoy being outside in the sun. Sunny days are usually energized ones, full of vigor and bring relief from the bone-freezing cold. However, along with it comes the sweat, oiliness, sunburns, hyper-pigmentation, breakouts and other skin challenges. So it is important to take optimum care of your skin. Your skin care in summer has to be planned considering to the environmental stress your skin will face. In this article, today we are going to cover the exclusive skin care tips for summers.
1. Lighten your make-up routine – skincare in summer
Go light on your daily customary make-up. Overdoing your make-up in summer and perspiring can result in clogging your pores and leading to breakouts.
2. Unclog your skin.
Summer is a season to increase your frequency for exfoliating your skin. Do it daily or every other day for clearer and smoother skin. It will remove the dead and dull skin debris along with the environmental toxicants to avoid clogging of pores. It will improve hydration for longer periods, however, take care to not over exfoliate your skin and don’t forget to moisturize.
3. Don’t give up on moisturizers
During summer our sweat and sebaceous glands are very active and we feel that we don’t need to moisturize our skin anymore, however, that is not true. An extra layer of sweat and oil on your skin is not equivalent to skin hydration. Moisturizers re-establish the outermost layer of our skin that will protect skin from pollutants and toxicants. Toners are also a good option to even out the skin porosity and can be re-applied throughout the day.

Summer sun is unforgiving on your skin. It will cause you to sunburn and can cause summer eczema if you forget your sunscreen. So, daylight protection is a must. Every day of the year, not just summer. . Apply a good amount of sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going out. You can also try moisturizer/SPF combos from Dermalgoica to simplify your life a bit.
