Summer is finally on the horizon. This beloved season means sunshine & warmer weather. It also means it’s time to start transitioning your skincare from Winter to Summer. You might think there’s no point, but trust us, the weather can warm up suddenly and strip your skin of moisture before you know it. It’s best to be as prepared as possible. These seven helpful tips can put you on the right path as you begin transitioning your skincare routine for Summer
1. Switch To A Lighter Moisturizer
With temperatures warming up, your skin is more likely to become dehydrated. A lighter moisturizer can help protect your skin from trans-epidermal water loss as temps rise (sometimes drastically overnight). The Vital C Water transforms on application and releases a flood of antioxidants,hyaluronic acid, vitamins and anti-aging peptides to provide a youthful, brighter, healthier-looking skin.
2. Opt For A Balancing Cleanser
A good cleanser like the ORMEDIC® balancing facial cleanser
can help keep skin cleansed and hydrated and form a proper base for the application of other products. It features aloe vera as a key ingredient to help soothe skin and leave it refreshed.
3. Remember Your Eye Gel
Eye gel is essential in the fall as it gets cooler. You may start noticing that lines become more visible around the eye area due to dryness, but you can help reduce their appearance with the right eye cream. The VITAL C is an ultra-hydrating Vitamin C/hyaluronic gel that smooths and diminishes fine lines while providing instant hydration to the eyes. Diminishes dark circles and puffiness.
4. Don’t Neglect Your Lips
It’s usually in the summer, as temperatures warm up, that lips tend to become chapped. We’re all familiar with that uncomfortable feeling of dry, painfully chapped lips, but there’s no reason why you have to suffer every Summer. Use the ORMEDIC lip enhancement complex as needed throughout the sunny months for well-moisturized and nourished lips that won’t fall victim to getting chapped.
5. SPF Is Still King
No’s the time to slather on the sunscreen. You may have given this a miss over the winter months. It makes sense – sun damage is cumulative, and damaging UVA/UVB rays affect skin no matter the season. Get into the habit of using the PREVENTION+® daily hydrating moisturizer SPF 30 daily. It’s also a moisturizer, so it packs a one-two punch.
6. Some Serum Never Hurt
To go the extra mile for hydration, we recommend trying a serum like VITAL C hydrating antioxidant A C E serum. Serums typically have a higher concentration of key ingredients. The antioxidants in this one in particular will also help combat sun damage Optional: Follow up with some brightening products like the ILUMA® intense facial illuminator and the ILUMA intense brightening crème to help reduce dullness or the appearance of any dark spots.
7. Exfoliate But Don’t Go Overboard
You can usually increase your use of exfoliators in Summer. However, you can incorporate a good mask into your routine about once or twice a week to maintain some form of exfoliation. If your skin gets very dry and flaky when it’s warmer out, a gentle exfoliating mask can help remove this dead skin as well. The VITAL C hydrating enzyme masque is a perfect option because it features fruit enzyme exfoliants and two forms of vitamin C to help give you that coveted glow.
