Cleanse and Exfoliate


Cleansing your face daily helps to get rid of sweat and dirt that may have gone unnoticed. Exfoliating kicks things up a notch by removing dead skin cells to reveal bright, healthy skin. We recommend exfoliating a few times a week, though the type of exfoliant used is up to you.

One simple method of exfoliation is to use an exfoliating toner, like the Pixi Glow Tonic. After cleansing, it will restore your skin's pH balance and get into pores to clean them out and tighten them up. Plus, it's made with glycolic acid, aloe vera, ginseng, and botanicals to give you an instant hydrated glow.

Be gentle during this process. The goal is to remove impurities without causing any irritation or damage. Check the ingredients of your skincare products to ensure that you get the desired results in a healthy way. Try to make sure that none of your products’ active ingredients are counterproductive or irritating when used together.

Keep Skin Moisturized (But Don't Overdo It)


Moisture is the key to achieving any look. Of course, drinking plenty of water is helpful too. It's also important to use a lightweight moisturizer in the warmer months so that your skin is hydrated without being bogged down. It’s just like the transition from sweaters to T-shirts - our bodies don’t need the heavy stuff right now.

Swapping out foundation for tinted moisturizer is another way to lighten things up. The ColourPop Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer is lightweight, oil-free, and supports hydration and skin health with its coconut water and hyaluronic acid. It gives you coverage with added benefits. 

Use an Essence/Mist Spray


For a bonus to your routine, an essence can be used to nourish and balance skin with its beneficial ingredients. An essence can come in the form of a serum or a mist. When you’re really feeling the heat, a quick spray from a facial mist is great. Try keeping the bottle in the fridge so that the liquid is cold for added relief! 

You can also toss it in your bag for a boost while you’re out and about. The Pacifica Travel Size Coconut Essence Hyrdo Mist refreshes the skin, thanks to coconut water, green tea extract, and other vegan additives.

Don't Forget to Apply (and Reapply) Sunscreen


Sun protection is not just for a day at the beach. It’s a necessity that everyone should use on a consistent basis. Luckily, there are many types to choose from so you can find one that feels just right. Be sure to apply it when you go places and reapply once it’s worn off.

Wearing sun protection doesn't have to be a hassle. First Aid Beauty's Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 comes in a lightweight formula that won't leave a white cast behind. It doesn't clog your pores, and it absorbs quickly, making it a summer go-to for all skin types and tones.

When using multiple products at once, it’s best to check that they all work well together. Some products, like chemical exfoliants, can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight. Applying sunscreen helps to combat sensitivity and makes it safer for you to show some skin this season!

    I recently used a cleanser then applied a face mask. I think the face mask I used irritated my skin because it left my skin red and blotchy. First time I ever experienced that.

    I don't really have a skincare routine. I should figure one out

    I drink more water and eat more fresh fruit, keep my showers cool, and use a good body cream on my dry shins.  Sunscreen when going outside is a must, too.

    Due to my fair and delicate skin my summer routine is full of nothing but sunscreen and aloe. I use tons of face masks to keep my acne in check while dealing with some of the greasier sunscreen brands

    My summer skincare routine is simply to keep my skin hydrated with a good moisturizer and to use sunscreen when I go out!

    I don't have much of a summer skincare routine right now but I hope that changes in the future when I find more products suitable for me. As of right now, I like to add spf into my normal routine in my moiturizer usually. I also tend to not wear so much makeup during the summer because I sweat a lot and it causes breakouts. I do want to add an exfoilater but the ones I've tried so far were eaither too harsh or they didn't work to the full capability.

    Non-existent. About to have my first baby and focused on the goal 💪

    I wear absolutely no makeup all summer long.  I focus on skincare, using toners, exfoliants, serums, eye creams, neck creams and moisturizers.
