Summer Skincare Picks

Just like our wardrobes, our skincare needs tend to change seasonally. In the heat and humidity of summer, pores look larger and tend to produce more sebum (oil) which leads to unsightly shine. This is why exfoliation is all the more important to maintain clear, smooth skin.

Another very important step is sun protection, although this is something your skin needs year round, not just in the summer. Skip the super damaging sun tanning sessions and opt for a natural-looking at-home faux tan.

Don’t just stop at your face. Keep your body looking youthful and hydrated by slathering on lotion before bedtime and, of course, be generous with the sunscreen to prevent premature aging. Nobody wants that!
