The temperature has started boiling, the sun is out for longer and there’s no chill in the air. Summer brings warmer temperatures and high humidity, so it’s time to update your skincare too! The sweltering heat waves call for products that are effortless, lightweight and easy to apply. Who wants to fuss with smudged makeup and thick creams when facing the warmth? Let’s decode the skincare essentials that one should switch so that you can achieve the ultimate summer look without any hassle.
Change your cleanser
Humidity can leave your skin looking greasy, one should invest in a cleanser that helps to sweep away oil, impurities and dirt from your skin morning and night with nourishing cleansers. When it’s getting hotter, swap out your creamier cleanser with a gel-based cleanser like Matcha Better Skin Detox Gel Face Wash that helps to clean out the build-up of pollution, impurities and oil from your pores. Also, packed with matcha green tea, this cleanser refreshes, hydrates and protects from within.
End your day with our Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm that melts away makeup, SPF, impurities and excess oil easily. Packed with salicylic acid, it gently exfoliates, unclogs your pores and helps to give your skin a clear complexion.
Modify your moisturizer
When it’s warmer outside, our skin retains moisture and produces excess oil. All you need is a lightweight moisturizer and consider using a gel or water-based that comes with a matte finish like Matcha Better Anti-Shine Moisturizer. It’s formulated with matcha green tea and bakuchiol that provides long-lasting hydration. It locks in moisture, keeps your skin oil-free, prevents future breakouts and boosts skin radiance. Sweep it gently over your skin after cleansing for achieving that smooth and soft skin.
Make the most of essence
Summer equals sweating and excess oil production that can leave your skin feeling greasy. To stay cool and hydrated throughout these hot months, apply a refreshing essence like Mama Cica Intense Oil Control Essence. Just tap some on after cleansing and your skin will instantly feel completely rejuvenated. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, this essence helps to replace your lost moisture, plumps up the skin and imparts a dewy matte finish. It leaves your complexion evenly balanced, supple and hydrated. Trust us when we say it’s truly magic in a bottle!
Practice the art of exfoliation
After those cold months, it’s normal for your skin to look a little dull. Add exfoliation to your skincare regime and watch how it changes the game. If you have oily skin, it’s recommended that you should exfoliate to open up blocked pores and remove oil that results in breakouts. Use a gentle exfoliator like the Mama Cica Instabright Peel Pads twice a week to get rid of the dead skin cells, and impurities and unclog your pores. Well, it comes packed with glycolic acid, a gentle AHA that sloughs off dead skin cells. It’s one of the easiest ways to get your glow on!
Switch to serums
We know facial oils can be winter heroes but as the humidity increases, it can make your skin suffocate. Switching to serum-like antioxidant-rich Chialeader Zit Fix Serum that comes infused with salicylic acid helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce excess oil and give your skin a smooth finish. Perfect for all skin types, this serum hydrates your skin and protects against pigmentation and future breakouts. It’ll keep your skin feeling revived all day long.
Soak Up The SPF
If there’s one thing that is non-negotiable it is sunscreen. Use a lightweight sunscreen with SPF 50 such as Bravocado SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunscreen Gel that protects your skin from harmful UV rays and feels non-greasy as it soaks into your skin. It’s a gel-based formula infused with antioxidant-rich vitamin E that shields your skin against sun damage and prevents penetration of harmful radiation, protecting your skin from getting sunburn.
Invest in vitamin C range
Vitamin C is a great addition to your skincare regime all year around. It helps to brighten your skin, even tones and even reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Not just that vitamin C helps to protect your skin from photodamage as well. You can invest in products enriched with Yuzu as it has 3X more vitamins than your regular lemon.
