The 2022 heat wave alert is at its peak not only in France, but also around the world. When temperatures rise, it is essential to make some changes in your daily routine to better adapt your body to hot weather. In addition to the higher intake of water and the wearing of light and airy clothing, you must also take care of your skin, which is particularly attacked by the sun’s rays. Focus on the tips tested and approved by our editors to keep the skin in excellent shape.
How to take care of your skin in summer?
During the hot season, the skin of the face faces several obstacles that are likely to damage it: higher level of pollution, very strong UV rays, fairly intense heat episodes and more. It is therefore important to know how to take care of the skin of the face so that it remains in top shape. To do this, a special beauty routine is essential in summer. Here are the right things to do during a heat wave:
Do a double cleanse : To maintain your facial skin properly each season, it is essential to clean it well using a product specially designed for this purpose. A first cleaning is carried out in the morning which consists only of gently removing the sebum which has accumulated during the night. Then, the second cleaning is the evening one which is in fact double: the first eliminates dirt, sweat, sunscreen and make-up while the second time cleanses the skin surface correctly and in depth.
For your information, double cleansing in the evening is particularly recommended by dermatologists and beauty influencers like Huda Kattan, the founder of Huda Beauty.
Exfoliate : Practicing a scrub in summer is a pretty important beauty tip, but you still have to be careful about the frequency. Dermatologists recommend exfoliating up to three times a week during the heat wave and mandatory application of sunscreen afterwards. It is better not to expose yourself to the sun in the hours following the procedure. Our editors offer the homemade salt scrub which will unclog pores and eliminate sebum.
Hydration: For a light and airy skin care this summer, opt for a combination product, a moisturizing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply generously and reapply every few hours. Also, don’t forget to moisturize at night after cleansing the face using a regular moisturizer.
SPF, SPF, SPF! It’s obvious, but it’s always good to remember that wearing sunscreen, preferably with an SPF50, is a crucial gesture to take good care of your skin in summer. Note that the SPF treatment is not only worn by the sea, but on a daily basis!
light make-up : Applying several heavy products on top of each other is not at all a good idea during heat waves. Instead, opt for an all-in-one product such as tinted and moisturizing sunscreen or clean look makeup trend which guarantees a rapid healthy glow effect. However, if you use makeup, make sure it is non-comedogenic.
Vitamin C Serum : Essential skin care cosmetic product in summer, but also throughout the year, vitamin C serum helps prevent hyperpigmentation, improve the appearance of fine lines and it can even contribute to the production of collagen. Just put a few drops on the skin of the face after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Summer beauty tips: DIY face mask that refreshes and takes care of the skin
A refreshing mask deflates the face on hot summer days, moisturizes the skin and treats irritation caused by UV rays. To concoct such a mask, put cucumber juice (or its pulp) in a blender and add a little watermelon, two teaspoons of powdered milk and an egg white. Blend to obtain a smooth paste. Then, apply on the face, as well as on the neck and wait about 30 minutes before rinsing your face with lukewarm water.
