Come summer, many of us eagerly look forward to sun, fun and relaxation. But with summer comes the need for seasonally specific changes to your skincare regimen to not only help protect you from the sun, but also to keep your skin fresh and glowing all season long.
Just a few simple updates to your skincare routine could help you proactively combat any summer-related skin issues so we’ve rounded up three simple, summer-savvy changes for your skincare regimen.
1 . Use a daily sunscreen.
It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen – or not apply at all if you don’t plan on being outside. During the summer months, the sun will find you so you must apply every day – and reapply frequently if you plan on being outside or in the water.For a sunscreen, Dr. Boggess recommends ZO® Oclipse® Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30, a multiple-defense sun protection system that provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB defense with a universal tint and matte finish. Its 12-hour time-release antioxidant complex guards against photodamage – but is still lightweight enough to wear under makeup.
2. Keep skin hydrated – inside and out.
Remember to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day to detoxify and to maintain a balance of moisture for both your body and skin. Also, be sure to include hydrating moisturizers and toners in your summer skincare regimen.For a moisturizer, Dr. Boggess recommends ZO® Ommerse® Renewal Crème, a light, functional hydrator that targets dehydrated skin without leaving an oily residue. Its calming and soothing antioxidant protection helps promote healthy skin repair while restoring hydration.
And for a toner, Dr. Boggess recommends ZO® Balatone™ Calming Toner + pH Balancer, designed to invigorate dry, weak skin, remove impurities, and balance the skin’s pH to optimize the penetration of therapeutic treatments. Its gentle cooling provides comfort while helping to soothe and repair sensitive or weak skin.
3. Treat signs of hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation occurs when there is an excess production of melanin on your face and body. But thankfully, a skin brightening treatment can help dramatically reduce pigmentation and prevent it from reoccurring.For treating hyperpigmentation, Dr. Boggess recommends ZO® Brightamax™ Skin Brightening Crème for Face & Body, a full-body treatment formulated to help reduce skin discoloration and even skin tone. Its antioxidants help protect skin while helping to reduce the appearance of redness.
