5 summer skincare tips for glowing skin

Summer always brings new challenges for your skin, such as sunburns, aging, pigmentation, and dryness. The increasing humidity can also lead to clogged pores and more frequent acne. So, it's important to step up your skincare routine to keep your skin sun protected and healthy during this time.

From adopting a gentle cleansing routine to opting for lightweight, non-comedogenic formulas, prioritizing hydration both internally and externally, integrating regular exfoliation into your regimen, and diligently applying sunscreen, these essential summer skincare tips will help you keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long. 

5 Skincare Tips For Summer

Here are some of the best skincare tips that work for all skin types:

1. Cleanse gently, twice daily

Cleansing, the foundation of skin health, helps to remove dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities that can accumulate throughout the day. Be mindful that you cleanse gently to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oils, which can lead to dryness and irritation.

Opt for a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser suited to your skin type - whether oily, dry, combination, or sensitive. Look for formulas free from harsh ingredients like sulfates and alcohol, as these can disrupt the skin's natural barrier.

Sandiva’s Unsoap Bathing Bar is formulated with pure sandalwood dust for gentle exfoliation and anti-microbial purifying action. Unlike regular soaps, it maintains the skin’s natural pH range of 5.5 - 6, without stripping its natural oils, and contains glycerin to lock in moisture for a feeling of refreshing hydration.

2. Opt for lightweight formulas

Swap out heavy moisturizers for lighter and more breathable formulas. Look for oil-free or gel-based moisturizers that provide hydration without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin. These lightweight textures are ideal for summer, as they help prevent clogged pores and excess oil production, especially for those with oily or combination skin.

Opt for moisturizers that contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and lightweight botanical oils.

Sandiva’s One & Done Protective Primer is a lightweight skin shield that protects skin from daily irritants such as sweat, pollution, and dust, all day long. Formulated with potent, purifying, and balancing naturals such as sandalwood, black cumin oil, and moringa oil, it leaves your skin with a silky smooth texture while being protected.

3. Hydrate, inside and out

Hydration is important to maintaining healthy, glowing skin, especially during the hot summer months when our bodies lose more water through sweat and evaporation. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Aim for at least eight glasses daily, and more if you're outdoors or active.

In addition to drinking water, one of the most important skincare tips for summer is to incorporate hydrating skincare products into your routine to replenish moisture and keep your skin feeling refreshed. Look for lightweight, water-based serums that deliver a potent dose of hydration without weighing down the skin.

Sandiva’s Daily Hydrating Serum is a lightweight hydrating gel that easily absorbs into the skin leaving a smooth, non-greasy finish. Packed with the magic of niacinamide, patchouli, and sandalwood, it reduces signs of aging and keeps skin looking plump and bright.

4. Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliating regularly is one of the most effective skincare tips, especially in summer. It helps remove the buildup of sweat, sunscreen, and environmental pollutants that can make the skin look dull and congested.

Incorporate a gentle exfoliant into your skincare routine 1-3 times per week to slough away dead skin cells, unclog pores, and promote cell turnover.

Choose a chemical exfoliant containing ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), which help dissolve dead skin cells and unclog pores without the need for harsh scrubbing. However, be mindful not to over-exfoliate, especially during the summer when your skin may be more sensitive to sun exposure.

5. Amp up sun protection

Sun protection is non-negotiable, especially during the summer months when UV radiation is at its peak. Hence, an important skincare tip for summer is to make sunscreen your best friend and opt for a broad-spectrum formula with an SPF of 30 or higher.

Apply sunscreen generously to all exposed areas of skin at least 15 minutes before sun exposure, and don't forget to reapply every 2 hours especially if you are spending time outdoors to maintain optimal protection against harmful UV rays and prevent sunburn and premature aging.

Sandiva's SPF Duo - tinted sunblock and SPF top-up loose powder is a complete sun protection solution that safeguards skin from both UVA and UVB rays, all day long.

By following these 5 summer skincare tips, you can keep your skin looking radiant and glowing all season long. Remember to adjust your skincare routine based on your skin's changing needs and enjoy the sunny days ahead with confidence and healthy, beautiful skin.
