Summer Skin Care Routine For Dry Skin
Worried of summers ruining your skin? Here is what you should be doing as your daily skincare routine for dry skin in summers to ensure the heat and the sun don’t take your glow.
Use A Cleansing Lotion Or Oil:
Cleanse your face using a cleansing lotion or oil. Dry skin types tend to react more violently to traditional makeup removers that have astringents in them. Therefore, using makeup removers that have moisturising oils in them that can nourish the skin and retain the moisture levels of it remain crucial. After this, use a foaming face wash since it will help remove debris accumulated over your face without stripping the skin of any natural oil.
We recommend the Good Vibes Skin Calming Makeup Cleansing Solution- Cherry Blossom, because it makes your skin soft and supple by nourishing it and removes impurities from your face. If you prefer a cleansing oil to a lotion, try using the Good Vibes Nourishing Cleansing Oil- Tea Tree which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help you get rid of dirt from pores and prevents acne. Finally, rinse your face with the Good Vibes Moisturising Foaming Face Wash- Honey that gives you a soft, clean and plump skin without the feeling of dryness or tightness.
Make Sun Protection A Priority:
Although you need to ensure on loading the SPF all year round, special attention should be given to sunscreen during summers. While it is obvious that summers can cause your skin to tan or sunburn, using sunscreen can prevent your skin from other long-lasting variants of sun damage like pigmentation, ageing and dark spots too. Therefore, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF of more than 30 so that your skin is protected from both UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
Try using the Good Vibes Aloe Vera Wide Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion with SPF 50 that protects the skin from sun damage, fights free radical damage and prevents pigmentation and tanning. The addition of aloe vera in this lotion gives it soothing properties that moisturises and nourishes the skin.
Don't Forget To Moisturise Your Skin:
Dry skin types need to keep on moisturising your skin, especially in the summers. Dry skin can get even drier in summer due to sun exposure and heat. If your dry skin starts to become oily frequently in summers, it is because your skin is getting too dry. To compensate for the dryness and prevent itself from completely drying out, the skin produces more oil. So, use a lightweight moisturiser that provides long-lasting hydration and follow a skincare routine that includes cleansing, toning, and moisturising to ensure a natural, strong glow.
We highly recommend the Good Vibes Moisture Rich Rosehip Face Cream in the day for radiant, youthful-looking skin. It is rich in antioxidants that rejuvenate the skin, lightens dark spots, prevents premature ageing and thoroughly moisturises the skin. At night, use the Good Vibes Soothing Face Cream Aloe Vera that repairs skin damage, imparts intense hydration, soothes inflammation and provides in-depth nourishment to the skin.
Use A Hydrating Or A Nourishing Face Mask:
Dry skin that is exposed to sun and heat in the summers can be dehydrated, itchy and red. So it is important to use a face mask that can help your skin retain moisture. Try using a face mask or an overnight face mask to nourish and repair your skin from within. Use face masks with plant extracts, glacial proteins and hyaluronic acid that replenish your skin's natural water reserves, rendering the skin soft and supple by morning.
Try using the Good Vibes Papaya Brightening Sleeping Mask for overnight moisturisation specifically designed to protect, repair and heal your skin while sleeping. It helps to reduce blemishes, evens our pigmentation, brightens up the skin and moisturises it overnight. For a quick fix, you can use the Good Vibes Nourishing Face Mask Avocado which is enriched with vitamin E to improve the texture of your skin and give it a well-moisturised look.
Don’t Forget Exfoliation:
Dry skin can get flaky and also develop a layer of dead skin cells over it. This is why it is important to exfoliate in summers so your skin doesn’t look particularly dull. Therefore, try using hydrating scrubs with glycolic acid, plant or fruit extracts that are rich in antioxidants and help give your skin a refined glow. Just make sure you go over it with gentle scrubbing motions and don’t use it more than once a week.
The Good Vibes Nourishing Gel Scrub Papaya is what we would suggest since it is formulated with hydrating properties to get the impurities clogging your pores away from the skin’s surface. It will lift dead skin cells away and enrich your skin by giving it a moisturised feel.
Use A Face Mist:
A face mist will help to give your skin the instant rejuvenation it needs in a hot environment. It can help your skin become soft and supple and moisturise your skin on the go. Carry it with you and the moment your skin feels too dry or dehydrated just spray a little on your face and experience the quick relaxation and revitalisation it offers.
You can use the Good Vibes Hydrating Face Mist- Jasmine that not only supplies your skin with the necessary moisture but also refreshes it. Additionally, it protects your skin from pollution and other environmental stressors. Its sweet aroma refreshes your senses and gives you the boost needed to get through the day.
Tips For Dry Skin Care Routine In Summer
- Apart from these changes or additions in your skincare routine, these are some tricks and tips to help your skin combat the scorching heat.
- Lower your shower temperature. A hot shower can definitely feel very relaxing but it will also strip your skin off it’s natural oil causing dry and dehydrated skin. Cool things down by washing or showering in lukewarm water instead.
- Be mindful of shaving your legs this summer too. Instead, wet your skin and hair in the shower and apply a shaving cream or gel. Then, shave in the direction that your hair grows (with the grain).
- Use a tinted moisturiser with SPF that will give your skin a hydrating glow and won’t suffocate your skin since it acts like a moisturiser and foundation in one.
- Use a hydrating serum that can give some relief to your dry skin. Go for a lightweight, hyaluronic acid-based serum that will moisturise your skin and secure the hydration in.
- Use coconut oils in areas that can dry out easily. Apply a thin layer, preferably before sleeping to the sole of your feet, elbows, hands and lips to thoroughly moisturise them.
- Keep aloe vera gel around you at all times. Aloe is an excellent soothing agent and can help calm your sunburn and tan. It can also give you a cooling effect so using it after cleansing your face is also a good idea.
We sure hope that these tips and tricks and the skincare routine for dry skin in summer can help you tackle your dry skin issues and make your summer more breathable. Have a happy and beachy summer!
