Skincare isn't one size fits all. This not only goes for skin type, but also for the time of the year. Every complexion, whether you're oily, dry or somewhere comfortably in between, needs to switch things up come summertime. So I'm starting a multi-part blog series on my favorite warm-weather ready skincare products.
And we'll start out exactly how your start your daily regimen-with cleansers. Foaming cleansers are ideal for warm months. The formulas are light, frothy and won't weigh you down. They're a great summer alternative to the rich and heavy cream cleansers you use the rest of the year. Perfect for almost all skin types, the Sophtyo Deep Pore Foaming Cleanser is 95% organic and easily dissolves sticky summer grime and pollutants while accelerating cell regeneration to keep skin radiant. Plus I love the ultra-light apple scent.
Even if your skin is ultra dry, you can still benefit from a light foaming cleanser. The Jurlique Replenishing Foaming Cleanser blended with marshmallow, viola, rose and honeysuckle to rebalance dryness for while effortlessly conditioning for an unbelievably soft complexion. Another great option for summer is a gel formula. Oily skin gets even more so when the weather gets warm and humid, clogging pores and creating a shiny surface. The Santaverde Aloe Vera Cleansing Gel provides serious yet super gentle deep cleaning action to even out skin tone and prevent blemishes. Its plant-based cleansers are mild, nourishing and won't dry you out.
Toners aren't an absolute given when it comes to skincare. But the time to use one has definitely got to be during the summer. Organic toners are super soothing and absolutely refreshing-which is a bonus when it's hot outside. The Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner lightly hydrates, firms and balances moisture for normal, dry and sensitive skin types with Anthyllis and witch hazel. Sophyto's Tone & Balance Super Bioactive amazing for normal to oily skin types. It uses 99% organic phyto-nutrients to restore and revitalize while combating any excess oil that may appear during the summer. I also really love the unique formula that makes up the Dr. Alkaitis Organic Herbal Toner. It works on all skin types to moisturize while protecting against environmental damage. Its blend raw, active natural ingredients can also work overtime to soothe sun-scorched skin after you've spent a few too many hours on the beach.
