I'm definitely a little late with this post, but I think you can never go wrong with some essential skincare tips when it's the season of summer, can you? After being introduced to Dollar Shave Club's razor team and their summer skincare essentials, I thought I would just share some of the products that I basically use on a daily basis throughout the summer months and that I think would be worth sharing with you!
Although my skincare routine doesn't really change a lot during summer, I try to adapt some products to the warm weather. Which means SPF, moisturisers, face masks, etc.
For me, SPF is just the most important skincare product during summer. As I've been suffering with rosacea on my nose for about four years now, I have to be really careful with the products that I use and especially with the sun as basically everything is a trigger for rosacea to get worse! So I always use SPF 50 on my face as well as on the rest of body.
Throughout summer, I tend to opt for a lightweight moisturiser for my face, mostly because I don't use a primer before I apply my foundation. However, the moisturisers I use on my body - lotions, butters, etc. - do have to be a little 'heavier'. I don't know but why but my skin tends to get a lot more dry during summer and I hate it! So as I'm aware of that, I always moisturise my skin before I put on my clothes in the morning and I'm good to go for the rest of the day!
Also in the warm months of the year, a lip balm is an essential for me. As well as my skin, my lips also get really dry most of the time, and I do hate that, but I also do know what to do. So I always have a lip balm with me!
Face masks and body mists have become the most essential products for me during summer. Both are refreshing and especially the masks have proven to be a Holy Grail for my skin! Both the masks and the mists are also great for travelling and when you're on the go as well!
Last but not least I just want to mention a favourite of mine during summer! Not sure if this has anything to do with skincare, but oh well! :-P A refreshing shower gel to use in the morning or after a long and hot day is just the best feeling ever, I can tell you! I currently use the Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower Gel and it's the best and most refreshing shower I've ever used! Love it!
So these were all the products that change during the summer months. I don't self tan or anything because I just don't think it will 'suit me' very well! haha :-P
What are your essential skincare products during summer?
Lots of love x
