Warmer weather and more time in the sun is what makes the summer everyone’s favorite season. But with that, more sun exposure, hotter temps and higher humidity levels can wreak havoc on your skin.
These skincare hacks will keep those seasonal skin concerns at bay, so you can maintain your #GlassSkinGoals all year round!
Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours
This one’s less of a hack, and more of a “must-do.” Without a daily SPF in your routine, you can counteract the benefits of your other skincare products (oh no!). In addition to reducing the risk of skin cancer, sunscreen helps protect against damage, dark spots, redness and inflammation, and premature aging, leaving you with more even-toned, healthier skin.
While it’s necessary all year round, it’s even more important in the summer months, when you tend to be outside in the sun. We love Rootree’s Mobitherapy UV Sun Shield because it has zero white cast, zero heaviness, and zero irritation.
Prime skin to avoid makeup meltdowns, or go makeup free
Makeup stays put longer on those hot, humid days, when adhered to this blurring primer rather than oily skin. Or, go make-up free and opt for just the Skin Shield Blurring Primer instead. This primer blurs the look of pores and texture, and leaves skin smooth with a bouncy feeling.
Besides the visible benefits, Skin Shield Blurring Primer also actively fends off damage from pollution and blue light, making it the perfect compliment to SPF for ultimate protection and firmer, more supple-looking skin.
Keep your cool with a hydrating mist
A few spritzes of the Glass Skin Veil Mist will refresh your skin with natural cucumber and peach extracts for a subtle, spa-like cool down, and deliver an instant Glass Skin glow. Use throughout the day to keep skin replenished with hydration, antioxidants and calming ingredients, and makeup looking hydrated and glassy.
Stay hydrated, inside and out
Traveling on planes and excess time in the sun can quickly dry out your skin. Pack a reusable water bottle to get plenty of water throughout the day, and an Original Glow Sheet Mask for a fast but deep hydration boost on your next getaway.
Wipe off the day as you go
Summer activities can lead to excess sebum, sweat, dirt and debris on your skin throughout the day, creating a breeding ground for acne and clogged pores.
For a quick wipe-down, reach in your purse for Peach Slices Clear Skin Oil Free Makeup Remover Wipes to gently cleanse on-the-go without stripping your skin dry.
Combat those summer breakouts
No you’re not just imagining it — your skin is more prone to breakouts in the summer. Hotter temps and higher humidity levels can lead to increased sweat and oil production, clogging pores and worsening acne.
The Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots are the perfect travel-friendly acne fighters, effectively helping reduce inflammation so blemishes become visibly smaller in less than one day.
