Your Summer Skincare Guide: Do’s And Don’ts

Your Summer Skincare Guide: Do’s And Don’ts

Summer Skincare

With the onset of the summer months, it is time for you to switch to lightweight, gel-based products. With your skin more exposed to the sun, the harmful effects of UV and Infrared radiation will have adverse effects on your skin’s health.  During the summer season, your skin naturally tries to regulate a lower body temperature, which leads to increased sebum production to maintain hydration and moisturization. This, unfortunately, may lead to severe breakouts. But with the right products, these seasonal shifts will not upset your skin’s rhythm.

THE PERFECT SUMMER SKINCARE GUIDE: Understanding the Cornerstones of Skincare 

Cleansing:

Cleansing is an integral part of your skincare and that remains important regardless of the prevailing weather conditions. During summer, due to the excruciating heat, we tend to sweat more. Sweat attracts dirt, pollution, and free radicals that seep inside our pores which leads to breakouts and other skin conditions. Therefore, Cleaning is of utmost importance during the summer. The Dermavive Hydra Cleanser is our top recommendation for you. This unique cleanser keeps the essential oils of your skin intact while removing excessive sebum production. It helps balance your skin’s PH level.

Moisturizer:

Summers can have a drying effect on your skin, and hence a good moisturizer is crucial for an effective skincare routine. Summer heat can dehydrate your skin severely, which leads to the skin producing excessive sebum, or oily substances to maintain hydration. Using moisturizers during summer is beneficial for preventing clogged pores. It seals your skin’s moisture and fights dryness. A daily dose of moisturization and hydration is a must during the summer months. The Neutriderm Moisturizing Lotion is one of the best moisturizers to include in your summer skincare regime. Stacked with antioxidants, this moisturizing lotion replenishes your skin. It also protects your skin from harmful UV rays and maintains your skin’s natural glow.

Sunscreen:

Sunscreen is non-negotiable! You should not step out of your house without applying your SPF. The UV rays during the summer can be damaging to the skin cells. Prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to signs of aging such as wrinkles, and fine lines, and can damage your skin severely. Sunscreen keeps your skin protected and prevents signs of aging. It acts as a protective barrier against sun damage. If you stay outdoors more often, you should choose a sunscreen with a higher SPF. It is highly recommended by experts to re-apply the sunscreen every 2-3 hours if you plan on spending long hours in the sun. Dermpix Photosafe Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 is our top choice for protection against the sun. It effectively fights oxidative stress caused by UV and infrared radiation. This gel-based sunscreen is enriched with Vitamin C which helps your skin fight sun damage.

The Don’ts in your Summer Skincare Regime 

Over Cleansing:

Cleansing is the bedrock of every good skincare regimen. While it is extremely important during summers, over-cleansing will dry your skin and will remove the essential oils from your skin. Over-cleansing may disrupt the skin’s natural balance leading to an overproduction of sebum or oil to compensate for the dehydration caused. During summer clean your face twice a day to cleanse the extra sebum production and any build-up.

Over Exfoliation:

While exfoliation is an important step for your summer skincare, over-exfoliation is harmful. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and build-ups caused by sweat, pollution, and other weather conditions. Over-exfoliation will do more harm than good as it will dehydrate your skin completely causing rashes, flakiness, and abrasions to your skin. It may even cause your skin to break out. Over-exfoliation damages the skin barrier and weakens the protective layer. Be gentle with your skin and steer clear of aggressive exfoliation.

Skipping your SPF

If you do not apply your SPF, you are damaging your skin severely, which can lead to major skin concerns in the future, even causing skin cancer. The damage caused by the sun is irreversible and can be severe. The UVA, UVB, and infrared rays can burn your skin cells, the sunscreen acts as a barrier preventing age spots, wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin darkening. Sunscreen provides a broad spectrum of protection and keeps the skin’s elasticity intact.
