When the weather gets hot, it’s time to switch up your routine to include summer skincare products and treatments. It makes sense: As your clothing layers get lighter and brighter, so should your skin care, but that doesn’t mean ditching your skincare routine entirely. Just switch up a few products to ensure that your summer skin looks its best. Best skin-care products for summer are ones that are versatile, offering many benefits and good-for-you ingredients, and make your skin feel smooth, not sticky or heavy.
Aside from wanting to embody that summer feeling with your skincare, the truth is that your skin changes with increased humidity and sweat—which means that your skincare regimen should change too. The key is using the best summer skicare products that work with the weather and keep you skin looking and feeling its best. This means lighter formulas and skin-care steps that help to slough off dead skin, improve tone and rebalance oil.
Some summer skincare products are:
- Moisturizer with SPF
- A clay face mask to absorb oil and rebalance the skin
- The best skincare regimen should include a face scrub to smooth and soften your complexion
A face scrub is an essential summer skincare product
Get rid of dead skin and buildup with a great exfoliating scrub. L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Kiwi Scrub for Oily Skin is perfect for summer because of its gentle exfoliating action. Face scrubs in summer are key because during the warmer months you’re more likely to experience clogged pores. Dead skin is lifted away with the scrub’s gentle scrubbing action, revealing a brighter complexion and encouraging cell turnover so your skin always looks bright and feels smooth. You can expect smoother skin, thanks to the sugar-prompted exfoliation, and over the course of the hot season, you’ll find you have smaller pores and a more balanced complexion. Definitely a skincare win.
You need clay-based face masks in summer
You can curb the excess sweat, oil and sebum that happens on the skin thanks to the heat with a mask that includes clay in its ingredient list. Charcoal and clay face masks draw out impurities like sebum, dirt and other irritants that clog your pores and make your skin look dull. Try one of L’Oréal Paris’s Pure-Clay Masks. They pull dirt, pollution and grime from the skin and help to fight dullness. Each mask contains additional ingredients that target your specific skin issues, so one of them is your must-have summer skincare product and a part of the your holiday skincare routine.

This summer you need moisturizer with SPF

It’s best to look for a moisturizer with SPF in it—that way you’re covered, literally.

It adds that totally necessary dose of SPF in your moisturizer to keep you covered and protected from the sun while addressing some other major skin concerns like wrinkles and providing hydration that leaves your skin smooth and prepped for the next step in your skincare routine.
