Your summer skin routine for a radiant glow

Summer heat, sunlight and sweat - that can be a real challenge for our skin. But don't worry, with the right care routine you can make your skin shine even in the hot months. In this blog post, we'll tell you how to create your summer skin care routine so that your skin looks fresh, nourished and radiant all summer long.

The right cleaning for summer

Thorough but gentle cleaning is particularly important in summer. Sweat, sunscreen and dirt can build up on the skin and lead to blemishes, blackheads and a dull complexion.

It's best to use a mild, foam-free cleansing gel or cleansing emulsion that doesn't dry out your skin. Make sure that the formula is free of alcohol and aggressive surfactants. This means your skin is not irritated or stressed.

After cleansing, it is important to rinse the skin thoroughly with lukewarm water. Don't use hot water as this can dry out and irritate the skin.

The right care for summer

The same applies to care in summer: sometimes less is more. Focus on lightweight, non-greasy formulas that hydrate your skin without weighing it down.

A lightweight, oil-free moisturizer is ideal for summer. It moisturizes your skin without leaving a heavy, sticky film. Make sure that the moisturizer contains active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera or glycerin, which provide the skin with intensive moisture.

We also recommend that you apply a light face mask 1-2 times a week. A clay mask helps remove excess sebum and refine pores. A mask with vitamin C or niacinamide also supports the development of collagen and ensures a more even complexion.

The right sun protection in summer

Probably the most important step in your summer skin care routine is sun protection. Because the UV radiation from the sun can really take its toll on the skin in summer.

Therefore, apply a high-quality sunscreen with at least sun protection factor 30 every day. Make sure that the sunscreen filters not only UVB but also UVA rays. This means you are optimally protected against sunburn and premature skin aging.

It is best to apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before sun exposure so that it can absorb and work properly. And remember to reapply every 2 hours - especially if you're in the water or sweating heavily.

Additional tips for your summer skin

In addition to the right care routine, there are a few other things you should keep in mind for radiant summer skin:

Drink enough water

Make sure you drink enough water in summer. Lack of fluids can lead to a dull, pale complexion. It's best to drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day.

Eat vitamin-rich foods

A balanced, vitamin-rich diet supports the health of your skin. In summer, increase your intake of fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, such as berries, tomatoes or peppers.

Avoid strong cleaning products

In summer, avoid using cleaning products that are too aggressive, as they can dry out the skin. Instead, you should rely on mild, moisturizing formulations.

Give your skin a break from makeup

On particularly hot days, it's advisable to give your skin a break from makeup. This way you can prevent clogging of pores and impurities.

With these tips you will be well prepared for the summer months and can enjoy radiant, healthy skin all summer long. Let us know what your summer skin routine looks like!
