Adapting your beauty routine for summer… a must!

Heat, sun, humidity... summer’s on its way and with it comes the need to change our skincare and make-up habits. Here are three tips to help you create the perfect summer beauty routine.

1) Choose lighter products

In winter, our skin has to be well equipped to withstand the cold, wind and dry air. That’s why we use skincare products that are richer and more nourishing, offering greater protection. But in summer, all that changes. As the heat rises, our bodies produce more sebum and perspiration. So, it’s important to use lighter, more refreshing, non-comedogenic formulas that provide our skin with the moisture it needs, but without clogging our pores.

  • Wash your face morning and night with a foam cleanser or a reusable cotton pad soaked in micellar water to help remove all the excess oil and accumulated impurities.
  • Moisturize using a gel or milk treatment that quenches your skin’s thirst and offers a refreshing boost. If you can find products with UVA and UVB protection, even better!

2) ALWAYS remember your sunscreen!

Make sunscreen part of your skincare routine every day of the year, but especially in summer when you spend more time outdoors, because UV rays are at their strongest during the summer months.

The steps to proper sun care

  • Apply sunscreen after your moisturizer every morning, making sure you cover all your exposed skin.
  • Reapply every two hours, or according to the directions on the packaging.
  • Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen (one that protects against UVA and UVB rays) with an SPF of at least 30.
  • Use a product that’s adapted to your skin type.

Remember

UV rays pass right through clouds and windows. So, sunscreen is vital even if it’s cloudy out or you spend the day indoors.

3) Use the right makeup

In summer more than ever, your skin needs to breathe freely! That’s why minimalist makeup is best, especially lighter products that are made for summer.

  • To enhance your tan’s healthy glow, choose a light, moisturizing foundation rather than an ultra-covering one. You might also want to try a tinted, dry-touch sunscreen. It will help repel water and take the shine off your skin when things heat up!
  • When choosing your mascara and eyeliner, opt for long-lasting, waterproof formulas to avoid that raccoon look. Remember to check the label for ingredients that will keep your eyelashes soft and supple, while and preventing your eyelids from tightening up.

Remember

If you’re not used to wearing waterproof makeup, remember to use a remover created specifically for waterproof products.
