How to Switch up Your Skincare Routine for Summer


The change in weather that comes with the summer season can have a significant impact on your skin, which is why it's important to adapt your skincare routine accordingly. Here are some tips for changing up your skincare routine for the summer:

  1. Use a lighter moisturizer: As the weather gets warmer and more humid, your skin may not require as heavy a moisturizer as it does during the colder months. Switch to a lightweight moisturizer or gel-based moisturizer that provides hydration without feeling heavy or greasy on your skin. We love Sun Down Spray as an added step in your summer skincare routine - super hydrating and nourishing!

  2. Increase your SPF: It's important to wear sunscreen all year round, but it's especially crucial during the summer when the sun's rays are stronger. Increase your SPF to at least 30 and reapply every two hours if you're spending time outdoors.

  3. Exfoliate regularly: Sweating and increased oil production during the summer can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Exfoliate your skin regularly with a gentle scrub or chemical exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. We love the silicone brush by KB Skincare for a super gentle physical exfoliation!

  4. Incorporate antioxidants: The sun and pollution can cause oxidative stress on your skin, leading to premature aging and damage. Incorporate antioxidants into your skincare routine to combat this, such as vitamin C or green tea.

  1. Adjust your cleansing routine: Sweat, sunscreen, and makeup can build up on your skin during the summer, so it's important to adjust your cleansing routine accordingly. Consider using a gentle foaming cleanser or cleansing oil to thoroughly remove all impurities from your skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Our Balm is the MVP of sunscreen, sweat and makeup removing while also providing your skin deep nourishment.

  2. Hydrate from the inside out: Drinking plenty of water and eating hydrating foods can help keep your skin looking healthy and glowing during the summer. Consider incorporating more water-rich fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and cucumber, into your diet. A hydrating tea is a great option to get some added vitamins and minerals into your diet! Try out a beauty tea that is specifically formulated with herbs to benefit your skin!

By following these tips, you can help keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long. Remember to listen to your skin and adjust your routine as needed to keep it looking and feeling its best.
