5 Seasonal Skincare Tips

It is that time of year again when anything synthetic is out of the question and cotton is your go-to fabric. Suede shoes get packed away, and your umbrella comes along to keep your sunscreen company.

That’s right – Summer is here! And with summer comes many skin care issues as well. Dry skin gets patchy and oily skin gets oilier. There are roughness and rashes, pimples and breakouts, and acne that will not go away. A few easy changes in your daily skincare regimen will ensure that you are ready for this season.

Here are five seasonal tips that have been quite valuable.

1. Face Care

You should look after your face every day of the year as it is your identity to the world. A special care regimen is warranted through the summer months though. One that ensures it remains clean and grime free and also hydrates. Through these hot months, it is essential to keep your face clean of dust and sweat. Many people experience pimples and breakouts in these months. Be sure to splash your face with water 3-4 times per day if you are one of thosepeople. To ensure your skin is well-hydrated consider using the best hyaluronic acid serum or Matrixyl from Timeless Skin Care.

2. Importance of Sunscreen

Never forget to wear sunscreen! While UV rays are harmful all year, they are more so in the summer when our exposure levels are greater. It is recommended to apply a minimum of SPF30 at least 20-30 minutes prior to heading out into the sun. Be sure to reapply as directed if you plan to go swimming. Sunscreen can also help delay the onset of fine line and wrinkles and minimize sun related spots.

3. Stick to the Basics

If you believe that your skin is unable to dry out during the summer months, you are wrong. Your skin can dry out from moving in and out of air-conditioned areas. This applies to your entire body, not just your facial skin. At night before sleeping, it is important to follow the old principle of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. To ensure your skin remains moisturized, consider using Timeless Skin Care’s Squalane oil. Sticking to the basics is even more important throughout the hot summer months due to the UV rays of the sun that could lead to premature aging and wrinkles.

4. Maintain Hygiene

To tackle the heat, overall hygiene goes a lot way. Not only will bathing twice a day keep your skin fresh, but it will also fight against summer lethargy. Those to experience body odor can also benefit from regular bathing. It is also important to bath after swimming in a chlorine pool to remove the chemical from your body.

5. Wear Breathable Fabrics

Light fabrics such as cotton are a must to fight against the heat. Tight clothing can lead to irritation and make you itch more in sweaty parts of your body. Rashes and serious skin infections can occur with prolonged conditions.

    Skin care is important. After all, it is our first line of defense against any offending organism. I always wear sunscreen and follow a night time cleaning and moisturizing routine. And most importantly, I keep myself hydrated regardless of the season.

    Good reminders to not forget our skin in the summer. I agree completely about sunscreen. I use a daily moisturizer with SPF 50, but I don’t reapply it. This reminds me that I need to reapply.

    Great post! Sunscreen is my number one skin care must have for any time of year (also really great for anti-aging benefits, too). I love that you mention hyaluronic acid for the face, it’s a really great ingredient. Is that the only brand you recommend or have you tried others?
