With summer just around the corner, it's time to gear up and make sure our skin is ready to tackle the warmer weather. And the first step we need to prioritize?
You guessed it – cleansing!
When it comes to summer, there are a few factors that can have an impact on our skin: rising temperatures, intense UV rays, and changes in humidity. But fear not, because we've got you covered with three essential skincare steps that will keep your skin in its prime:
No matter your skin type, cleansing is a non-negotiable step in your skincare routine. During the summer, even dry and oily skin types can become oilier due to the heat and humidity. It's all because our sebaceous glands kick into overdrive, producing more sebum in higher temperatures. Plus, sebum spreads faster on moist skin. So, keeping your skin clean and free of excess oil is crucial.
Introducing our hero product, the Lorde+Belle Hydrating Cleanser. This versatile 3-in-1 powerhouse not only cleanses your skin but also exfoliates and hydrates it. Formulated with gentle encapsulated botanical beads, it provides a thorough cleanse, leaving your skin smooth, refreshed, and ready to absorb the goodness of other skincare products. It's even great as a gentle exfoliator for those areas you wax or shave, preventing ingrown hairs and promoting smoother skin.
For those with oily skin, look for oil-control products that can help maintain balance. A gentle cleanser that removes excess oil without stripping away natural moisture is a game-changer. Consider incorporating a toner into your routine to control oil production and leave your skin feeling fresh and clean.
On the other hand, if you have dry skin, opt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser that won't leave your skin feeling tight or parched. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin that provide a boost of moisture.
And here's an interesting tidbit: recent studies have shown that facial oils can actually balance sebum production. However, it's important to choose the right oils for your skin type to avoid clogging your pores.
Regardless of your skin type, remember to cleanse both morning and night. In the morning, focus on removing any excess oil and sweat that may have accumulated overnight. In the evening, it's essential to remove makeup, dirt, and impurities that have built up throughout the day.
So, there you have it – cleansing is the vital first step in your summer skincare routine. Tailor your products and routine to suit your skin's needs and the environment, and you'll be well on your way to achieving healthy, radiant skin all summer long!
