If your skin isn’t looking and feeling its best, take that as a sign to switch up your routine. After all, hot and sunny weather is known to contribute to redness, dullness, congestion, and a host of other complexion concerns. We have the summer-approved advice and product recommendations you need to get your gorgeous glow back.
Make SPF Your BFF
Small steps can have a big impact. We’re talking about wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher every single day. It’s the easiest and most effective way to protect your skin from premature aging.
If sunscreen isn’t part of your routine because you’re worried it will feel greasy or leave a white cast, you’re in luck. Innovative formulas, like Total Defense + Repair from SkinMedica or Obagi’s Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 50, absorb quickly and easily. You’ll love to apply it because it has ingredients that restore your skin!
Invest in a Vitamin C Serum or Even a Mask
Vitamin C is a great anti-aging ingredient to incorporate into your routine. This powerful antioxidant defends against aggressors like UV damage and pollution to keep your skin healthy. It also boosts collagen production, fades hyperpigmentation, and has a brightening effect.
Not all topical Vitamin C products are created equal. SkinMedica’s Vitamin C + E Complex gradually delivers high levels of the star ingredient to provide long-lasting antioxidant protection. Obagi’s Microdermabrasion Polish + Mask exfoliates and primes the skin for a powerful infusion of 30% vitamin C, revealing dramatically brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
Remember to Exfoliate
You can benefit from exfoliation year-round. It helps prevent clogged pores and dullness by sloughing away dead skin cells.
In the summer, when your skin is feeling oily and congested, alpha-hydroxy acids and beta-hydroxy acids are particularly effective. Consider picking up the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser from SkinMedica to get a dose of these ingredients while you wash your face. Obagi’s C-Exfoliating Day Lotion is a perfect lightweight daily lotion that provides mild exfoliation and a brightening effect!
