In summer, skin needs special care. It may seem that the summer heat causes excessive sebum and sweat, so there's no need for additional cream at all. In fact, you shouldn't neglect moisturizing, especially a high-quality SPF cream, which not only protects the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation but also serves as a preventive defense against skin cancer.

Excessive heat is harmful to the skin. Dermatologists advise you to try a simple four-step care routine that will keep your skin glowing and moisturized throughout the summer.

Step 1: Cleansing

First of all, let's talk about cleansing. Start your morning skincare routine with a gentle moisturizer. Experts advise choosing gels that contain ingredients such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid. In the evening, wipe off your makeup with an oil-based cleanser and then use a mild cleansing gel. This double step ensures that your skin is completely cleansed.

Step 2: Toning

After cleansing, you should take care of a high-quality toner. Customized to your skin's needs, this product helps to balance the pH and can also create an additional protective layer. Choose an alcohol-free toner. Ideal ingredients include rose water, chamomile, or aloe vera. Simply moisten a cotton pad with the toner and gently wipe your face with it.

Step 3: Moisturizer

It's important to keep your skin moisturized, so in the summer you shouldn't use products that can clog pores. It is better to choose a gel-based moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides. Apply the cream while your skin is still slightly damp from the toner to fully preserve the moisturizing effect.

Step 4: Sunscreen

Last but not least, sunscreen is an absolute must. The sun's rays can be extremely harmful to the skin. It can also lead to premature aging and dehydration of the skin. A good broad-spectrum sunscreen will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and make it part of your daily routine.
