1. Lighten up your skin-care routine
In the summer, your skin-care routine may need to be a little more lightweight. The heat and humidity of summer means you can swap out a heavier cleanser (think cream or oil cleanser) in favor of a gentle, foaming option.
2. Use a dual-purpose moisturizer
To help lighten things up, switch to a combination lightweight moisturizer and sunscreen 30 or higher. If you have acne-prone or oily skin, losing one skin-care step with a combination moisturizer/SPF can help keep skin clear.
3. Don’t stop moisturizing completely
Despite hot and humid weather, you still need to moisturize. Even if your skin already feels oily, you should always follow cleansing with a moisturizer. Moisturizers reestablish the outermost layer of the skin, protecting us from harmful pollutants and chemicals, while preventing further irritation or dryness. A lightweight moisturizer will help keep that outer layer nourished without feeling too heavy on your skin.
