1. Skin Condition in Summer:

Our skin tends to become oily and shiny as summer arrives, and we don’t believe it’s our fault. With the rising temperatures, sweating becomes inevitable, causing the evaporation of moisture from the skin’s surface. In response, the skin automatically produces more sebum as a self-protective mechanism. This disrupts the balance of the skin’s water and oil, making it more prone to pore clogging.

2. Common Skincare Misconceptions in Summer:

Cold Water Face Wash:

In the scorching summer, washing your face with cold water might feel refreshing, but it stimulates the contraction of skin pores, leading to the accumulation of dirt within them. Over time, this can result in enlarged pores, acne, and blackhead issues.

Frequent Face Washing:

Especially for those with oily skin, summer can be challenging. Many people resort to frequent face washing to remove excess oil, but excessive cleansing damages the skin barrier, causing dryness and peeling. The correct method to control oil is to maintain skin hydration and focus on moisturizing.

One-time Sunscreen Application:

Sunscreen film formation takes about 5-10 minutes, so applying sunscreen and immediately heading outdoors is ineffective. Additionally, sunscreen reapplication every 2-3 hours is crucial, especially for prolonged outdoor activities, with an additional touch-up every hour.

3. Key Points and Recommendations for Summer Skincare Routine:

1. Cleansing:

Cleansing is the foundation of skincare, ensuring proper absorption of subsequent products. Using a foaming net is recommended, as choosing mild cleansing products and avoiding strongly alkaline soap-based cleansers to protect the skin barrier.

Suggestions:

1.Use a foaming net for face wash to reduce alkalinity and enhance cleansing effectiveness.
2.Prioritize gentle cleansing products to avoid damaging the skin barrier.
3.Use eye and lip makeup removers for effective makeup removal.
4.Incorporate a deep-cleansing mask at least once a week to unclog pores.

2. Hydration:

With the likelihood of increased sweating, timely hydration is essential. Use a toner before makeup, carry a hydrating mist in your bag, and regularly use hydrating masks and serums to maintain a balanced water-oil level.

Suggestions:

1.Use toner as a makeup base and carry a hydrating mist for on-the-go hydration.
2.Apply hydrating masks daily and choose serums with intense moisturizing properties.
3.Limit the duration of mask application to 10-15 minutes to prevent excessive hydration.
4.Wash the face after mask application to remove excess product.

3. Sunscreen:

Sunscreen is crucial throughout the year, and for summer, adopting both physical and chemical sunscreen provides dual protection. Ensure proper application for both indoor and outdoor activities.

Suggestions:

1.Use both physical and chemical sunscreen for comprehensive protection.
2.Choose sunscreen products based on individual skin needs and preferences.
3.Have a small bottle of sunscreen spray for convenient reapplication.
4.Adjust SPF levels based on the duration of outdoor activities.

4. Serums:

Opt for lightweight serums in the summer and avoid using heavy skincare products. Choose serums based on your skin’s needs, such as brightening, stabilizing, or anti-aging, and pay attention to ingredients like arbutin, niacinamide, and squalane.

Suggestions:

① Brightening Serum:

Common brightening ingredients found in the market include arbutin and niacinamide.

A. Niacinamide: It prevents melanin from the base of the skin from transferring to the surface, leading to a decrease in melanin content in the stratum corneum. However, niacinamide contains nicotinic acid, which may cause intolerance in some individuals. Be sure to conduct a skin test before use.
B. Arbutin: Arbutin reduces tyrosinase activity, thereby inhibiting melanin production. It also helps enhance melanin metabolism, reducing pigment deposition. Use caution to avoid exposure to light, as it may lead to melanin precipitation.

②Stabilizing Serum:

Stabilizing serums cater to different skin needs. Consider potassium glycyrrhizinate for acne-prone skin requiring stabilization, which prevents skin sensitivity and inflammation when exposed to stimuli.

A.For oily skin aiming for stabilization, the choice of ingredients is extensive, with plant extracts being the gentlest for oil control.
B.For sensitive skin, focus on repairing the skin barrier on top of hydrating. Consider ingredients like squalane and ceramides to aid in barrier repair and establish a healthy stratum corneum.

③Anti-Aging Serum:

Anti-aging ingredients include derivatives of vitamins A, C, and E and factors like retinol, alpha hydroxy acids, and yeast extracts.

By paying attention to these skincare recommendations, you can maintain healthy and refreshed skin during the summer, clarifying common misconceptions and highlighting confident, beautiful skin.
