Updated Skincare Routine: Summer
I don't know about you, but
I am really melting with this heat! I have no air conditioning in my home, lucky me. The one thing I dislike the most about this season, is that my face is always glistening with sweat and I get zits from clogged pores. Do you? My skin even gets more sensitive in the heat and I don't know why. Sometimes it gets really red and blotchy and my pores can get to looking huge. Thankfully, there are some amazing products that I have been able to try out that help me look my best when I have a summertime skin emergency.
PROBLEM: RED, BLOTCHY SKIN FROM OVERCLEANSING
SOLUTION: NOURISHING, GENTLE FOAMING CLEANSERS
Switch out heavy cream formulas for a light foaming cleanser with Vitamin C to brighten and hydrate skin, like the Refreshing Foaming Cleanser.
TIP: Wink Brow Bar owner and skin care guru Umbreen Sheikh says to, “Use a product that contains calendula and/or witch-hazel. The ingredients soothe the skin and help to avoid rashes and irritations. Use a salicylic acid product every day to prevent zits and clear out/exfoliate skin!”
I absolutely love this amazing Refreshing Foaming Cleanser. I use it every morning and night. It has an uplifting grapefruit scent, and deeply, yet gently cleans my entire face. It even removes my eye makeup without stinging my eyes!
PROBLEM: OILY AND/OR DRY SKIN
SOLUTION: SKIN-TYPE SPECIFIC MOISTURIZERS
Did you know? If your skin is excessively dry OR oily, this almost always signifies a lack of moisture in your routine. Just like skin NEEDS H2O, it also needs proper outer care and hydration. Reaching for a moisturizer specific and target for your particular skin type is a wise choice, like the Bright Now or Time Freeze collections for younger skin types or mature, respectively!
TIP: Umbreen says to “Remember to apply on the jawline and neck to keep wrinkles away!”
