How can I take care of my skin during the summer?

The summer season can have an impact on the skin, making it necessary to take care of it and change the skincare routine to look better during the hot summer months. It's important to consider what the skin needs, as it doesn't dry out as easily as it does in the winter, but still needs care to deal with the sun's rays and the effects of sun protection products. It's crucial during this season not to overlook cleaning and moisturizing to avoid the appearance of pimples.  

Cleaning the face:

Wash your face using a light, specific facial cleanser four times a day. It is preferable that it is in the form of gel, unless the skin is extremely dry, in which case a cream cleanser can be used. It is advisable to perform a facial cleaning by going to a skin care specialist once a month, to relax the skin and clean the pores, get rid of skin sensitivity, as the production of oil on the skin increases during the summer season, which clogs the pores, leading to skin problems. 

Sun protection:

It is necessary to use sunscreen before exposure to the sun half an hour before, and reapply it during the day, especially if the exposure to the sun is between 10 am and 3 pm; because the sun's rays are strong at that time.

The use of makeup

Makeup can help keep the skin's pores closed and cool the skin, so it's important to use makeup that is suitable for your skin type or use rose water, which has cooling properties for the skin. It's important to avoid heavy or oily makeup that can clog your pores and lead to breakouts, especially during the summer when the skin is more susceptible to heat and sun exposure. It's also important to remove your makeup thoroughly at the end of the day to keep your skin clean and healthy.

Using a moisturizer

It is necessary to drink a lot of water during the summer to keep the skin hydrated, but it is also important not to overlook moisturizing the skin, especially with a water-based moisturizer, to protect the skin. It is important to keep the skin hydrated both internally and externally to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance.
Keeping the skin hydrated from the inside
It is important to avoid carbonated drinks; they contain sugar which is bad for the skin, so it is better to drink fresh juices, for example coconut water, fruit juices and of course water; to maintain a soft and healthy skin.

Exfoliating the skin

Exfoliating the skin twice a week and if the skin is oily, it can be exfoliated 2-3 times a week, to remove dead skin, brighten, boost blood circulation, renew skin cells and keep the skin soft and clear. It's important to choose the right exfoliant that is suitable for your skin type and not to over-exfoliate as it can damage your skin.

Eye cream

A heavy eye cream may not be suitable for daily use during the summer, as it can feel heavy and greasy on the skin. It's recommended to use a lightweight eye cream during the day and opt for a heavier one at night. It's also important to protect the lips with lip balms or moisturizers containing SPF.

Removing makeup

It is extremely important to remove makeup at night, by using a gentle BB cream remover, then cleanse the face with a mild cleanser or wash using a light gel. After that, apply a fragrance-free lightweight moisturizer. Leaving makeup on overnight can clog pores, cause breakouts and damage the skin. So it's important to have a consistent routine of removing makeup before going to bed every night.

Caring for oily skin during the summer

There are several things to consider for caring for oily skin in the summer, including:

  • Avoiding harsh scrubs when exfoliating the skin, as the oils produced by the skin help to keep it moisturized and prevent irritation.

  • Using a gentle, alcohol-free cleanser. Avoiding over-washing the face as this can stimulate oil production, instead, use a cleanser containing salicylic acid once a week.

  • Avoid touching the face with the hands to prevent excessive oiliness. Using oil-free, mattifying makeup and skin care products that contain salicylic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and tea tree oil.

  • Eating foods high in Vitamin A to maintain a healthy skin, such as carrots, spinach, watermelon, and fish. Exfoliating once a week, adding fruits, cucumber, and lemon juice to the scrub to help with oily skin.

  • Drinking plenty of water and avoiding sugary drinks. Using a light moisturizer that is oil-free and fragrance-free. Using a sunscreen to protect the skin from the sun. And visiting a skincare specialist to get a facial treatment once a month to help remove impurities and oils from the skin.
