Sun-drenched days and silky-smooth evenings are finally upon us! But as you transition into summer, your skin may experience changes that kick-start issues like congestion, dryness and excessive oil production. Ahead, we’re sharing our top tips to keep skin looking and feeling its healthiest as the mercury rises.
Remove sunscreen properly.
SPF is a must come the summer months, but it’s important to remove your sunscreen thoroughly at the end of each day. Not doing so can lead to clogged pores, blemishes and breakouts. We recommend double-cleansing to get the job done, starting first with an oil-based cleanser—as oil dissolves oil—and then rinsing clean with a foaming cleanser, ideally one with AHA or BHA exfoliants to kick-start cell turnover.
Don’t skip on moisturizer—but adjust accordingly.
If you’re prone to oily skin in the summer, it can be tempting to skip out on moisturizing regularly. Bad idea. When skin is dry, it goes into overdrive to produce oil, exasperating the issue. Instead of ditching the hydration, be consistent about applying moisturizer regularly, choosing a lighter formulation if necessary.
Our signature eXO Face moisturizer comes in two versions—the lighter, original eXO Face Bio.digital Perfection Moisturizer and our new, richer Bio.digital Perfection Cream. While both are appropriate for year-round use, we opt for our eXO Face Bio.digital Perfection Moisturizer when it’s super-steamy out.
Hydration first, sunscreen second.
It can be confusing to figure out the right order in which to apply products in the summer. Don’t get overwhelmed. Always apply sunscreen last, it should be the outermost barrier between your skin and the sun. All of our products layer beautifully under sunscreen, providing essential hydration while also infusing the skin with free radical-fighting antioxidants.
Your body needs TLC, too.
You may be showing more skin in the warmer months—so don’t forget to pay attention to your body, too! Regular exfoliation using a sugar scrub and loofah helps slough off dead skin cells and daily hydration with eXO Body, our nourishing body lotion, helps the skin stay smooth, soft and touchable—a must for days spent poolside!
