Warm Weather Skin Care Tips

For most of us, warmer weather means catching some rays by the pool, relaxing on the beach, or simply spending more time outdoors. However, with all this fun in the sun, it’s not the time to be neglecting your skincare routine! These warmer months, especially down here in Southwest Florida, are when the sun’s rays are at their most damaging so it’s important to take care of yourself and your skin! Here’s how you can beat the heat with these warm-weather skin care tips!

Level Up Your SPF!

It’s the most important, fundamental, don’t-leave-home-without-it tip: Wear sunscreen. It’s essential to incorporate sunscreen into your daily skincare regimen no matter the weather, but even more so during these warmer months. Even though it’s first on our list, make sure sunscreen is the last step in your skincare routine! 

Lighten Up Your Skin Care Routine

If you’re not wearing a winter coat, why should your skin? The heat and humidity of these warmer months mean you can swap out a heavier cleanser such as a cream or oil cleanser, for a more gentle, foaming option. We recommend Azul’s Botanical Cleanser because it’s a gentle and mild botanical-based foaming cleanser that is perfect for all skin types. It’s non-drying or irritating and deep cleans the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. It contains light alpha and beta hydroxy acids and natural botanicals for gentle exfoliation. This product is a patient favorite and will be the perfect addition to your skincare routine. 

Exfoliation is Key

The key to avoiding any nasty breakouts during these spring and summer months is to properly cleanse all of the dead skin cells, oil, sweat, and sunscreen that accumulates on your face throughout the day. This is where our Enzyme Polish comes into play! Just like a home-based microdermabrasion for your skin, our Enzyme Polish is an elegant combination of exfoliating agents. Gentle micro-sudsing jojoba beads work to dissolve the protein “glue” that holds dead cells together, revealing fresher younger skin. One of the best things about our Enzyme Polish is that it’s so gentle and uses all-natural ingredients that it’s suitable for all skin types.

Add In Some Vitamin C

Vitamin C offers your skin plenty of benefits during every season, but even more so during these warm spring and summer months. Vitamin C’s anti-aging, damage repairing and UV-protecting powers make it the Holy Grail of skincare ingredients! Azul’s Dermal C with Vitamins B, E, and Ferulic Acid is a wonderful product to incorporate into your skincare regimen. It’s an intensive, professional strength Vitamin C antioxidant skincare product that leaves you with smoother, firmer, plumper skin and a healthy, radiant glow. 

Keep On Moisturizing

The extra layer of sweat on your face does not count as a moisturizer! Despite the hot and humid weather, you still need to keep your skin moisturized. An Azul favorite for years, our Green Tea Moisturizer is a light, soft whipped gel-cream moisturizer that hydrates, soothes, and calms the skin. This moisturizer contains aloe, cucumber, and calendula extracts, shea butter, and vitamin E that work together to keep your skin healthy and hydrated, making it the perfect moisturizer to use during the summer, on stressed skin, or every day under makeup. 

That Means Moisturizing Your Body, Too! 

Aside from sun protection, moisturizers and moisturizing body products are arguably the most important element of any skincare regimen. Your skin is your body’s largest organ and you want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to keep it healthy, glowing, and vibrant. Excessive sun exposure can dehydrate your skin, so it’s important to keep it moisturized during these hotter months. That’s why we recommend adding our Crepe Doctor to your body care regimen! This deeply hydrating yet light, nutrient-rich formula helps to visibly repair and condition the appearance of dry, aging, crepey skin using tightening and firming ingredients. With our Crepe Doctor Lotion, you can moisturize and improve the look and feel of your skin in one easy step!

As you prepare for these warmer days ahead, be sure to keep these spring and summer skin care tips in mind! If you have any questions about what products are right for your skin, please contact us and schedule an appointment with one of our medical estheticians.
