Summer Skin Care Tips: How to Keep the Fun Even when Under the Sun

How to Achieve Summer-Ready Skin

Prior to your much-awaited out-of-town vacation, prepare your skin for the days when the sun is strong with this step-by-step guide:

1. Exfoliate

You may be regularly cleansing and moisturizing but if you’re not exfoliating, your skin products may not work as efficiently as they should. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells that form a layer on your skin, revealing a smoother, healthier and glowing appearance.

2. Moisturize

After exfoliating, follow up immediately with a moisturizer. Summer or not, applying moisturizer is a must as it makes up for the moisture loss and keeps your skin feeling soft and supple. Opt for a non-greasy, gel or water-based formula to avoid the usual sticky feeling.

3. Sunscreen

You should know this already but, it pays to remind you that not wearing sunscreen is bad for your skin. Keep sun damage at bay by applying at least an SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen 30 minutes before stepping into the sun. Re-apply after 4 hrs. or after toweling dry if you are going to swim.

TIP: Pair your sunscreen with an SPF 30 lip balm to shield your lips from the UV rays as well.

Summer Makeup

Summer is the best time to skip the makeup and embrace your natural beauty! But, if you can’t imagine yourself completely bare-faced, follow these general tips for keeping you looking fresh even when the weather is against you.

1. Go Light.
Lighten your routine and cut down on the number of products you use.

  • BB creams to even out skin tone

  • Oil-free moisturizer to plump up your skin

  • Lip stain to double as a non-greasy blush

  • Loose powder to seal in your makeup

  • Makeup setting spray to prolong wear

2. Opt for non-comedogenic products.
Anything that blocks the skin pores can result in acne breakouts. Swap your usual makeup with ones that have a non-comedogenic formula.

What does non-comedogenic mean?
Comedo is a term that describes a blocked pore and non-comedogenic refers to products that are formulated to help minimize potential blockage of pores thus, reducing the chance of acne breakouts.

3. Switch to waterproof.
If you fear getting smudges, invest in quality waterproof makeup products for long-lasting wear.

  • Concealer

  • Liquid foundation

  • Mascara

  • Blush

  • Lipstick

Additional Summer Skin Care Measures


Wearing moisturizer and sunscreen is not the only sun protection measure you can take this summer. On top of this, drink up at least 8 glasses of water to maintain moisture in your body. Also, include a lot of fresh juices and fruits to nourish your skin and achieve that healthy glow you’re after.

Limit Sun Exposure

Additionally, limit the amount of time you spend under the sun, particularly between 10 am and 2 pm when the sun is at its peak. Seek shade whenever you’re out and cover as much exposed areas as possible with an umbrella, a wide-brimmed hat and/or sunglasses.

Follow a Healthy Diet

Now, all your efforts must come down to following a healthy diet – a fine balance of fruits, vegetables, cereals, and nuts will ensure that you get enough nutrients your skin requires particularly during summer.  

Taking some time to practice these tips will prepare your skin for the summer in no time. But, if you want to make sure that any unwanted skin problem will not spoil your vacation, consult your skin care expert to ensure that it’s not just your body that is summer-ready, but your skin as well!
