Now that summer is in full effect, it’s time to revamp your daily regimen to reflect the change in weather. If you have an oily skin type, the best way to prep your skin for the warm weather isn’t by pounding on makeup to appear dry. Instead, follow these skincare steps to train your skin to not overproduce the oils on your face in the sweltering heat.
Step 1: Wash
The DDF Blemish Foaming Cleanser ($32.00) is a gentle foaming cleanser that is perfect for normal to oily skin types. It removes excess oils as well as prevents and treats acne blemishes. With salicylic acid as a key ingredient, this cleanser cleans the surface and down in the pores to tighten the skin without over drying it.
Step 2: Tone
Clinique Clarifying Lotion ($12.50 – $21.00) is a world famous toner that exfoliates the skin, purifies pores, and clears away pollution and excess oils your face can come against. Available in four formulas to cater to the specific needs of the different skin types, the Clinique Clarifying Lotion is a must-have all year round, but an essential during the summer months.
Step 3: Moisturize
The IMAN Replenishing Serum ($20.00) is one of a kind moisturizer. It treats the skin from enviromental damage, aging effects, any lost nutrients. Aloe Vera, Antarcicine and White Tea Extract and Hydrolyzed Silk are the main ingredients that help repair the skin while providing the moisture that it needs. After using this product, you will see and feel an immediate difference. Your face will feel tighter and your skin will look brighter.
Step 4: Blotting
The Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens ($10.00) is a fresh, all natural blotting sheet made out of green tea used to remove excessive oils throughout the day without messing up your makeup. Made from 100% natural linen, these blotting papers are sure to keep your face matte all day long.
Step 5: Powder Up
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($27.00). Once your all blotted up, this sheer powder is the perfect finishing touch to complete the outer layer of your day’s makeup. It’s sheer enough to not disrupt the makeup applied earlier, but powdery enough to finish off the day with the freshest face.
