Make These Five Changes to Your Skincare Routine This Summer

Aquarius Wellness Mantra Reminder: Be Calm. Be Serene. Be Restored.
Each and Every Day!

It’s hard to believe summer is here, with how long and complicated the last 18 months have been it has felt like vacation season would never come! As summer approaches, swapping your wool sweaters and floor-length down jackets for sundresses and sandals is a welcome no-brainer, but your skincare needs a warm weather update as well. So, what can you do to look your absolute best all summer long?

Follow the 5 tips below to keep your skin soft, dewy, and protected from those harsh summer rays.

1. Invest In a Vitamin C Serum.
Vitamin C serums are a necessity in an anti-aging skincare regimen. Vitamin C has been proven to:

  • Brighten your complexion
  • Reduce the appearance of scars and dark spots
  • Even out your skin tone
  • Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Prevent skin sagging

Vitamin C is even more essential in the summer when our skin takes the most damage from harsh UV rays and drying breezes.

Our recommendation: This vitamin C serum enhances skin luminosity with brightening vitamin C esters to combat uneven skin tone caused by environmental damage, sun overexposure, hormonal imbalance and scars.

2. Ditch The Heavy Moisturizers.
During winter and spring, your skin tends to dry out. To manage this, most people apply extra moisturizers and night creams.As summer approaches, however, it’s time to lighten things up. You’ll want to use less rich moisturizers to prevent your skin from getting too oily.

Our recommendation: Start your day with Oxygenated Infused Marine Peptide Cream. This ultimate anti-aging repair cream is enriched with skin rejuvenating marine peptides and liquid oxygen that hydrate, tone, brighten, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Make Sure Your Skincare Products Include Sunscreen.
When summer rolls around, it’s safe to say you will be spending more time outdoors. This makes sunscreen more important than ever.Even spending just 30 minutes outside without any sunscreen puts you at a higher risk of developing a sunburn and, potentially, dangerous skin cancers like melanoma.

Our recommendation: 30 minutes before you head out the door, apply Eco Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 25, a non-whitening, silky smooth and lightly scented moisturizer with antioxidants and SPF 25 to protect the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

4. Take Shorter, Cooler Showers.
Nothing feels better after a long day than taking a nice hot shower. Unfortunately, hot water dries out your skin, which is an even bigger predicament during the summer.Because your skin is dry, you’ll need to apply thick moisturizers to restore skin moisture. These can make your skin produce too much oil, which can lead to greasy hair and clogged pores.

Instead, try to take a cool or lukewarm shower for 15-20 minutes. Not only will this keep your skin healthy during the warmer months, but it will also give you a chance to cool off from the heat.

Our recommendation: Immediately after you shower or bathe, apply a fine moisturizer to help lock in hydration, such as our Body Hydration with Porphyra Red Algae. Your skin will feel silky smooth with our light citrus-scented moisturizing body lotion containing organic seaweed, vitamins A and E, hyaluronic acid, and omega 3 and 7 fatty acids that nourish and protect the skin from environmental damage.

5. Drink More Water.
While this may not seem like a skincare tip, drinking water may have an impact on your skin health. Our bodies need water to keep cells, organs, and tissues operating at their best. Water is also necessary for temperature regulation and maintaining other bodily functions.In summer, it’s more important to drink water because we lose a significant amount of hydration through sweat. Drinking water can help you stay cool, which prevents breakouts and clogged pores. It can even prevent skin wrinkling.

Our recommendation: Use this free calculator to find out exactly how much water your body needs every day. Then, start the day off with a glass of water and replace sugary drinks with unsweetened, flavored water.
