Must Have Beauty Products for Summer

Guest post

Summer is upon us, and this means it’s time to switch up your skincare routine. Your go-to products in winter may not be as effective or comfortable to use when the weather turns hot, so it’s time to grab some summer-friendly alternatives. Here is a list of must-have beauty products for summer:

A Great Oil-Based Cleanser

Warm summer weather can make us sweat and make our skin oilier than usual, so it’s important to double cleanse at the end of the day. This is especially crucial if you wear makeup or sunscreen every day (you should, and we will discuss why later in this article.) For your cleansing needs, you can’t go wrong with organic beauty products by Well Within Beauty.

Well Within Beauty offers a natural makeup remover that contains nourishing plant oils to gently yet effectively remove all traces of makeup, dirt and grime. It quickly dissolves waterproof and long-wearing makeup and softens your skin in the process, prepping it for your second cleanse.

A Gentle Second Cleanser

After removing your makeup, it’s important to follow up with a gentle second cleanser to get rid of any residue that may still be lingering on your skin. A gentle water-based cleanser like Well Within Beauty’s Soothe + Soften Cleansing Emulsion gets your skin sparkling clean without stripping it dry. Nourishing ingredients like white lily, jasmine and almond oil make sure your skin is well hydrated and your natural moisture barrier is intact even after you cleanse.

An Effective but Gentle Exfoliator

Summer is the time for smooth, glowing skin. If you currently have dull, rough or flaky skin, you can remedy this by introducing a gentle exfoliator into your skincare routine. Exfoliators effectively get rid of dead skin cells that are sitting on the surface of your skin, giving it that dull, lacklustre appearance and texture.

Physical exfoliators can get you quick results, but if you use them too aggressively, you could end up irritating or damaging your skin. Chemical exfoliators are a gentler, more user-friendly alternative. They may sound intimidating, but they are safe and wonderful at promoting skin cell turnover so your dead skin cells are sloughed away, and fresh, new radiant skin shines through.

A Lightweight Moisturizer

Most people don’t like the feel of thick, heavy creams during the hot summer months. But keeping your skin properly hydrated is important any time of year, so switch to a more lightweight moisturizer when the weather gets warm.

Gel moisturizers and light emulsions are your best bet, or you could try the Korean skincare method of patting on several layers of a hydrating toner. This method effectively plumps up your skin and hydrates it fast while giving you a refreshed and cooling feeling.

Adequate Sun Protection

Last but definitely not the least, you should invest in superior sun protection during the summer. The sun’s harmful rays can wreak havoc on your skin, causing skin cancer, sunburn, dark spots, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Protect yourself from such skin concerns by covering up with a broad-spectrum protection sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Don’t forget to reapply every two hours, especially if you’re going to be out in the sun like on the beach or in the park.

These are the most essential beauty products you should have in your arsenal during the summer. Depending on the look you’re going for, you may want to add bronzer, a safe and natural self-tanner, or a glowy body oil to your kit as well. Whether you prefer a fuss-free regimen or you enjoy an elaborate routine, be sure to cleanse, hydrate and protect your skin properly so you have healthy, radiant-looking skin this summer.
