Summer heat isn’t always kind to your skin. When the temperature rises, you want to keep your skincare regimen light to allow your skin to breathe. The right blend of skincare products will help nourish and hydrate your skin without weighing it down. Try the following lightweight skincare routine this summer for healthy, youthful looking skin.
No matter your skin type, a good quality facial cleanser is a must. We recommend the Purifying AZA Cleanser and Gentle Foaming Wash by Dr. Sylvia Skincare. As the skin can lose its natural lubrication when over-washed or with the use of harsh cleansers, it’s important to stick with a mild and gentle cleanser used twice a day. Gentle Foaming Wash is a sensitive skin cleanser infused with a blend of soothing phytonutrients, such as chamomile, calendula, and green tea extract while Purifying AZA Cleanser is formulated with Biosulphur and Arnica extract that gently yet effectively fights off acne-causing bacteria while calming and nourishing your skin.
Add a toner to your summer skincare regimen to remove excess oil and any dirt and grime missed by your cleanser. The Dr. Sylvia Skincare Gentle Soothing Toner is an excellent toner for sensitive skin as it contains no alcohol which can strip the skin of its natural oils. This face toner helps restore the skin’s natural pH balance and soothe redness and inflammation with the help of azulene, chamomile, and other ingredients.
The delicate area around the eyes is often the first to succumb to damage, including deterioration caused by exposure to sunlight. This summer, keep your eye areas looking firm and healthy with a quality eye cream like the Elastifirm® Eye Cream by Dr. Sylvia Skincare. This anti-wrinkle eye cream is formulated with potent peptides Syn-Coll™ and Argireline which help reduce eye wrinkles, moisturize the skin and protect against free radicals.
During the long summer season, you may need extra hydration to keep your skin looking its best. Moisturizer can help prevent and treat dry skin, protect sensitive skin, and improve skin tone and texture. When applied regularly, moisturizer helps hold water in the outermost layer of skin to create a temporary barrier. Our top pick is the Ultra-Sensitive Moisturizer by Dr. Sylvia Skincare and Botanical Hydration Gel. Ultra-Sensitive Moisturizer for normal, dry and sensitive skin is color-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free. It also contains vitamin-rich oils to soothe and protect delicate skin. Botanical Hydration Gel contains tea tree and lavender oil that combats acne and blemishes while hydrating the skin and encouraging normal oil production. Created by skin specialist Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, this unique gel-based cream is also rich in vitamins A, C, and E and contains botanical extracts to nourish skin. It is especially helpful for those with oily or combination skin.
Sunscreen is one of the most important products in your skincare arsenal. The best face sunscreen is the Oil Free Sun Protection SPF 30 by Dr. Sylvia Skincare. This multi-active formula protects against UVA and UVB rays to help discourage premature aging. This sunscreen is also lightweight and oil-free, the perfect combination for warm summer temperatures. To give your skin what it needs season by season, it’s important to adjust your skincare routine accordingly. In the summer, your skin may excrete more oil than usual, making it necessary to switch to sensitive, oil-free formulas.
