As the weather gets warmer, many of us adjust our skincare routines to accommodate for the increased humidity and higher temperatures. We often think about the changes that occur with our skin in the wintertime, but often don’t stop to think about the necessary changes to our skincare routine in the summer. As the weather gets warmer, it’s a good idea to switch up products to accommodate for the increased humidity and higher temperatures. Just as the warmer weather brings sunny days, and long-awaited vacations, it also brings on a surge of environmental factors that may have our skin going haywire despite the steady forecast. Why is that? There are two main reasons.
Skin’s new normal in summer can catch it off guard, and before it has time to adjust, its natural ability to protect itself (barrier function) is confused and compromised, making it vulnerable to external aggressors like pollution and summer’s abundance of sun.
Does Summer Heat Affect Skin?
HEAT: When it gets hot, skin can experience redness. It also increases its sebum production, which can lead to enlarged pores and when mixed with dead skin, even clog them causing breakouts.
Does Humidity Affect Skin?
HUMIDITY: When humidity strikes it upsets our skin’s water-to-oil balance. This worsens skin’s imperfections and can cause dermatitis, a general term for common skin irritations. Those may be acne, dryness, itching, and even blistering.
Lightweight Serum for Summer and Hot Climates
When choosing a face serum for summer try to select a lightweight formula that won't feel heavy or greasy on your skin. This can help to hydrate the skin and provide some benefits throughout the day. Look for serums that have a thin, watery texture and absorb quickly into the skin. Our Advanced Génifique Face Serum has a silky, light-weight formula that easily and quickly absorbs into the skin.
