Summer Skin Care Routine for a Smooth & Glowing Skin All Day Long & Night
Everyone’s idea of beauty is different, but most people find it as smooth, glowing & attractive skin tone. While we can’t change everything about our appearance, there’s plenty we can do to maintain a healthy skin. A daily skin care routine is essential in our mission to preserve a youthful appearance and this is especially true during summertime.
Let’s see what kind of skin care routine is necessary during the summer to keep your skin glowing.
Essential Steps in Your Daytime Summer Skin Care Routine
Daytime summer skin care is typically lighter than winter skin care. High humidity in the summer provides more hydration to the skin, but you need products to lock the moisture in. Follow the steps below to keep your face protected on those sunny summer days.
Wash Your Face with a Gentle Cleanser
The hot, humid summer air increases sweating, clogs pores, and often leads to acne. Facial skin tends to be oilier than usual after a summer night’s sleep.
The morning routine should start with a light facial cleanser that removes the night’s sweat and sebum build-up but doesn’t strip the skin of essential oils. Hi9 deep pore cleanser is a great solution because it’s lightweight and suitable for all skin types.
Boost Your Skin Protection With Antioxidants
Antioxidants like vitamin C and E are powerful free radical fighters. Use a serum with these ingredients to boost your skin’s protection against harsh environmental pollutants. Hi9 Vitamin-C serum is fortified with powerful delivery system and Hyaluronic acid complex; it penetrates deep into the dermal layers to support the collagen structure.
Apply a Lightweight Moisturizer
There’s usually enough moisture in the air during summer to keep the skin hydrated. However, the humidity and heat also increase sweating, so you lose moisture.
You need products that contain humectants—ingredients that lock in moisture. Some of the best humectants are hyaluronic acid, glycerin, urea, aloevera, etc. Hydragel daily moisturizer by hi9 is a good choice of a moisturizer for the summer because it provides intensive hydration while also protecting the skin from photo damage. It’s suitable for all skin types.
Steps in Your Night-Time Summer Skin Care Routine
Don’t think that because summer skin care is lighter it means that you don’t need a night-time routine. You still need products that clean your pores and nourish your skin at night, but with special ingredients. The routine below will help your skin recover from those long days in the sun.
1. Remove All Daytime Products and Impurities
Use the same daytime facial cleanser for your night routine to remove all makeup, sunscreen, and impurities of the day.
Humid air and excessive sweating increase the buildup of dead skin cells and impurities on the skin. Exfoliate at least three times a week to keep your skin clean and well prepared for products that nourish and protect it. Hi9 exfoliating gentle face scrub removes black heads from skin, exfoliates dead epidermal cells, and cleans clogged pores to reveal smooth & refined skin texture
3. Use a Gentle Toner to Close Pores
Hot and humid weather opens pores, making the skin more susceptible to free radicals. If you have oily skin and a skin prone to clogged pores and acne, use a gentle toner with refreshing agents (cucumber, green tea) to close your pores and tone your skin.Hi9 illuminating toner contains a boost of Witch Hazel & Chamomile protection and aloe conditioning wipes off the impurities & closes the pores for a beautiful toned skin.
4. Apply a Night Repair Gel Having a Boost of Minerals
