Should I Change My Skincare Routine for Summer?

07.09.2022 | Skincare

While there’s no need to completely redo your entire routine, warmer weather and longer days can change what your skin needs this time of year.

For example, more time spent outdoors means you need more frequent sun protection. Humidity can cause skin to produce more oil and sweat, which can lead to congestion and dehydration. But don’t worry, you can stay glowy and hydrated all season with a few easy tweaks - here's our top summer skincare tips.

ADD ANTIOXIDANTS

These powerful ingredients fight off free-radical damage—from things like UV rays and pollution—that leads to wrinkles, dark spots, dullness, and more. They also work to repair this damage and improve the look of sun damage over time. Get vitamins B, C, and E in one step with INKEY's Vitamin B, C and E Moisturizer
 

MORE VITAMIN C 

Vitamin C Serum is a powerful antioxidant and one of the best ingredients for youthful skin because it helps support skin’s collagen supply while brightening dark spots and uneven tone. 

LIGHTEN UP 

Swap rich creams for light lotion moisturizers and gel serums that won’t weigh you down on hot days. Try Omega Water Cream which is lightweight and oil-free.  

USE SPF

Sun protection is essential 365 days a year but especially in the summer when the sun is highest and you’re more likely to be at the beach, on a hike, or on a patio. We recommend reapplying every two hours when outside. This tip is particularly important if you’re using retinol during the daytime. 

Worried about breakouts? SPF 30 Sunscreen is the best SPF for acne-prone skin.

TAKE IT ALL OFF 

Melt away impurities and daily SPF with a Salicylic Acid Cleanser. The added benefit of salicylic acid in your cleanser is that it will rid skin of debris and unclog pores at the same time.
