Prepare to tackle the heat!

Summer is just around the corner and just like your wardrobe and makeup, your skincare needs a seasonal change.

The heat and humidity results in oilier skin due to the increase in sebum production and drier skin caused by water evaporating from our skin leaving it dry and dehydrated.

We need to change our skincare routine to adapt to the weather. Apart from the mandatory sunscreen, take on these easy steps as you prepare to show more skin this summer!

1 Load up on Sunscreen

Don’t just apply sunscreen when you’re about to head out. Consistently apply products containing SPF (even when you’re staying indoors) to allow the SPF to build up, making it less likely for your skin to burn. According to dermatologists, the product builds up in your stratum corneum a.k.a. the outermost layer of your skin to prevent excessive sunburn.

2 Hydrate Your Skin

Tackle the heat by making sure your skin is hydrated. When you sweat, you lose moisture in your skin, causing it to be irritated and prone to sunburns. Increase the number of moisturising elements in your daily products; include moisturising face masks, lotions, creams, and serums into your skincare routine.

3 Wear Minimal Makeup

When you’re out and about under the sun, it’s best to keep your makeup to a minimal. Trust us when we say natural light can do wonders for your skin (and selfies). If you cake on the makeup, you will be clogging your pores when they just want a breather in the heat. We suggest you go for the French girl appeal where less is always more.

4 Treat Sunburns With Care

If you’ve fallen victim to a nasty sunburn, don’t panic! Your priority is to lessen the inflammation in order to prevent more skin damage. Professional dermatologists suggest that you apply milk and ice to sunburned areas to help ease the redness and inflammation.

5 Pack Some Spritz

The one thing we recommend that you invest in this summer is facial mist, especially ones that contain spring water. They have natural elements that will calm sun-kissed skin and give you that dewy summer glow. The mist acts like Redbull for your skin as they replenish the minerals you lose when you sweat.
