Why You Should Change Your Skincare In Summer
The mercury is rising, days are getting longer, and you are dreaming of spending your days basking in the warm sunshine – it’s summertime. You have swapped out your jackets and sweaters for light cotton blouses and ditched the dark makeup palettes for fun pops of colour. But have you ever thought about updating your skincare routine with the changing seasons? Your skin undergoes a lot of change as the climate changes and it is important to give your skin the right kind of nourishment based on the season.
You already know that a high SPF sunscreen is the most important part of your summer skincare routine. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing are also must-haves in the summer months. But as the season gets hotter, you should now add other hydrating products like sheet masks and facial mists to your regime. A hydrating sheet mask and a face mist will give your skin a quick boost of moisture when your skin feels dry and parched during summers.
When your skin is feeling extra tight and dry, restore and create natural skin moisture with the Garnier Hydra Bomb Pomegranate Serum Sheet Mask. This sheet mask intensely hydrates the skin and leaves it feeling soft and plump. If you are someone with oily skin and the increased humidity during summers has sent your sebaceous glands into overdrive, control oiliness with the Garnier Hydra Bomb Green Tea Serum Sheet Mask. The green tea extracts in the sheet mask soothe, protect, and purify your skin against harmful external elements.
The harsh summer sun making your skin look dull and tired? Refresh and revitalize your skin with the Sakura White Serum Sheet Mask by Garnier. Enriched with Japanese Sakura Extracts, this sheet mask will naturally replenish and brighten your skin to give you a rosy glow from within in just 15 minutes. You should also carry a small spray bottle filled with rose water, water mixed with cucumber extracts, or just plain water to spritz your face on-the-go. This will help add some moisture to your dehydrated skin throughout the day and is a simple yet effective way to revive your skin.
When choosing skincare products for the summer, remember to look for lightweight products that will let your skin breathe. Use a mild cleanser that does not strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture. Leave the thick and rich moisturizers and creams for the fall and winter months and instead, opt for a lightweight gel for the summer. Look for ingredients that have a cooling effect and will calm your skin during the long and hot days. A serum is another great option for an effective skincare product that does not feel heavy or greasy on your skin.
And lastly, remember to never skip sunscreen, especially during summers, since the harmful UV rays of the sun can have long-lasting effects on your skin. By making just a few changes to your skincare routine, you can enjoy soft, supple, and smooth skin even during the hot summer season.
