It’s finally summer! We all know that keeping our skin feeling light and fresh can be quite a challenge during the summer season. From the intense heat to excessive humidity, our skin can have a hard time keeping its natural oils and moisture that give off that dewy look.
The heat also enlarges our pores which leads to a higher chance of dirt and bacteria getting trapped in our skin. The constant change between humid and dry weather increases the chance of blemishes and dullness, which can leave you feeling less confident. We are experts at helping our clients find the perfect products for their skincare needs. Now, let’s dive into a list of tips and products to help you achieve the summer skin you’ve always wanted!
1. Exfoliation is Key!
Our bodies continuously shed dead skin cells so it’s important that we exfoliate these skin cells or our pores will become clogged, giving off a dullness that we want to avoid! Exfoliating your skin 2-3x a week can help ensure that you are removing unwanted dead skin which will help you achieve brighter and smoother skin! We recommend our Image Skincare Body Spa Exfoliating Body Scrub. This scrub is a dual-action body polish that delivers high-performance exfoliation to revive dull, dry and flaky skin.
2. Save Your Skin!
The most important step in your summer routine should be wearing sunscreen. Incorporating sunscreen into your routine is an absolute must. Applying sunscreen to your entire body and adding it into your makeup routine can help fight against premature age lines and wrinkles. It can also help protect you from developing skin cancer. Even if you have a darker complexion and don’t burn easily, your skin is still prone to damage that can come from the sun. The Image Skincare line has a fabulous tinted moisturizer with SPF and a flawless foundation that has SPF mixed into it as well. This foundation comes in multiple shades.
3. More Water, More Glow!
Hydration is super important in getting a dewy complexion this summer. Health experts recommend drinking half a gallon of water a day. Drinking the proper amount of water can help reduce puffiness, prevent acne, improve skin tone and much more. Grab your Garbo’s water bottle and get to hydrating! You’ve got this!
4. Wash Your Face
Washing your face with a proper cleanser will ensure that your skin gets the cleansing it needs without stripping your skin of its natural oils which can cause dry and irritated skin. We recommend the Image Skincare Total Facial Cleanser. This cleanser is a three-in-one formula that removes makeup, balances skin’s pH and gently exfoliates surface cells to reveal smooth skin!
5. Treat Yourself to a Face Mask
A good face mask can instantly make your skin appear brighter. Face masks and sheet masks are a great way to make your skin feel more moisturized and hydrated. They can also help improve the appearance of pores which will help your skin give off that glowy look. Image Skincare has both purifying masks and hydrating sheet masks! Choose your pick and let yourself receive a spa-like experience right at home with these products.
