5 Summer Skin Tips

Written by   GINAMARIE Products
5 Summer Skin Tips 5 Summer Skin Tips
It’s about that time again when you trade in boots for flip-flops, take weekly trips to the beach, and cry a little when the AC breaks down. Summer is upon us in all its glory. During these hot months, you might find yourself having to work a little harder to prevent breakouts and minimize sun damage. Your pores become trapped from sweat and sunscreen. Your face starts to peel from a harsh sunburn. It can be quite frustrating to find a happy medium that lets the skin breathe while protecting it from free radicals. Just a few simple changes in your holistic skincare regime can ensure that your skin is ready to glow this summer season!

Sun protection, sun protection, sun protection
The first tip that is 1000% necessary is investing in a broad-spectrum, oil-free SPF 30 sunscreen. UV rays can be harmful during any part of the year, but especially the summer months. Broad-spectrum protects you from both UVA and UVB rays, which can cause premature aging, wrinkles, age spots, burns, and skin cancer. One mistake people often make is not reapplying sunscreen enough. Based on how your skin reacts to the sun and how much melanin you have, you should be reapplying sunscreen anywhere from every 20 minutes to every 2 hours…even when it’s cloudy! An oil-free sunscreen won’t clog pores and is ideal for people with acne-prone skin. There are so many affordable, light-weight, and oil-free sunscreens out on the market. Go find yours today!

Don’t Underestimate Antioxidants
Antioxidants are ingredients that help protect your skin from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors like UV and pollution. With daily use, they visibly lessen the signs of aging and calm skin inflammations, allowing the skin to repair itself and reverse damage. Some of the best antioxidants for your skin are Vitamin C, Niacin, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A. All of these ingredients can be found in their natural form in GINAMARIE products.

Make sure your skin is feeling healthy and hydrated during these hot months! Long days outdoors can deplete your skin from moisture. Not only should you be drinking 8 cups of water daily, but also incorporating an additional hydration step into your skincare routine. Try opting for a hydrating facial mask, such as the GINAMARIE Hydrating Charcoal Mask. Its unique formulation will purify with activated charcoal while hydrating with avocado oil all in one treatment.

Avoid Heavy Makeup
Heavy makeup prevents the skin from breathing. Mix that with heat and humidity, it creates a perfect environment for acne and breakouts, not to mention premature aging. Heavy foundations are also more likely to melt and slip off on hot, sweaty skin. Instead, opt for water-based face products. Water-based foundations are extremely lightweight and won’t get trapped in your pores. They are typically more hydrating and give the skin a natural finish, which is important when trying to perfect a flawless, no-makeup look in the summer. GINAMARIE’s Aloe Foundation is a great water-based option that also contains aloe to help improve skin conditions and calm any irritation.

Go Light on Moisturizer
It might be time to switch up your winter moisturizing routine. In the winter, the air is much drier, and our skin requires extra hydration. However, the air is much more humid during the summer months, so the skin naturally requires less moisturizing products. Applying more product than needed will not only clog the pores, but can also lead to premature aging and fine lines. Moisturizer is meant to balance the skin’s natural oils – applying too much, especially in the summer, will lead to a greasy finish on the skin. Stick to a lightweight moisturizer, such as GINAMARIE’s highly refined Vitamin E Oil, or water-based Hyaluronic Acid. Remember, more is never better!
