5 Essential Summer Skincare Tips
Get your colourful hats, sunglasses, sandals, and dresses ready! We’re heading to summer in Australia once again, and there’s no better way to welcome the warm season than by being ready ourselves. That includes having summer-ready skin.
Don’t just plan your outfits or your getaways; make sure you are equipping your skin with the right practices to beat the summer heat. Here are 5 essential summer skincare tips, including some anti-ageing skincare products you must remember.
- Don’t forget to double cleanse
You’ve probably heard the term “double cleansing” many times in the past. Double cleansing, in essence, means cleansing your face twice. You first cleanse your face with an oil-based product, and then you cleanse it with a cleanser.
When you double cleanse, you’re sure that you eliminate all traces of grease, dirt, SPF, and makeup. Clean skin prevents breakouts caused by clogged pores. After all, it’s no secret how hot summer can be. When you end your day feeling greasy, be sure to double cleanse!
After cleansing with an oil-based product, use this trusty foaming cleanser from Mayerling Skincare for the next step. It’s great for combination and oily skin as it works quickly and softly, dissolving impurities and removing all traces of makeup, grease, and dirt.
- Use lightweight moisturisers
Imagine using a rich and creamy moisturiser during the summer. Big yikes, right? Go for lightweight moisturisers during this season — a season when we’re all sweaty and greasy.
Skincare involves trial and error, so if you realize that moisturisers don’t work for you during the summer, save them for winter. But if you notice that it does work, check out the Adec Vitamin Facial Moisturiser from Mayerling Skincare. It provides steady, time-released moisture to help smoothen and nourish your skin. Get ready for skin with a flawless, more radiant finish — perfect for the summer!
The Adec Vitamin Facial Moisturiser also works amazing with this eye cream that gives that eye treatments-at-home feeling. It’s a specialist treatment cream to firm your skin and reduce fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness.
- Apply enough sun protection
If you haven’t been the type to wear sunscreen, now is the best time to start. Sunscreen doesn’t only reduce the risk of sunburn. It reduces the risk of skin cancer and signs of ageing too.
Even when it’s cloudy, sunscreen is an extremely important part of skincare. We can’t stress this enough! It’s one of the best anti-ageing products ever. With a sunscreen that has a minimum of SPF 30, you can protect yourself from developing skin cancer and premature signs of ageing.
Remember: Just because the sun isn’t striking hot, doesn’t mean that UVA and UVB rays aren’t there. Remember to reapply your sunscreen too!
This Mayerling Skincare anti-ageing moisturiser with SPF 30 will do wonders. It doesn’t just protect, moisturise, and nourish your skin. It also gives it a tinted finish to cover any imperfections.
- Have a hydrating facial mist handy
Sure, fans are great to keep us cool, but they can leave your skin dehydrated too. Have a hydrating facial mist handy for the moments when your face needs that quick hydration fix. Remember to drink lots of water too!
Using a hydrating mist and drinking lots of water are great to keep you hydrated and ready for the summer heat. Plus, they’re super refreshing too!
- Avoid using too much facial oil
We know you hate feeling oily during the summer, so don’t make it worse! Applying facial oil might make your skin even greasier than it already is, so try to avoid using too much facial oil.
Listen to your skin and adjust how much facial oil you’ll apply every day during summer. You could also opt just to use facial oil at night, which is when it’s not as hot.
If you really feel that something is missing from your skincare routine, you could try using serum instead. This Mayerling Skincare dermal transfer serum is a luxurious anti-ageing smooth serum to instantly brighten your skin, reduce wrinkles, and provide intense dermal hydration.
Some people love summer; some despise it. Regardless of which team you fall under, it’s important to follow these essential summer skincare tips and have these anti-ageing skincare products to keep your skin healthy despite the hot weather!
