Beat the Heat and Keep Your Skin Glowing: Summer Skincare Routines

Understanding Summer Skin Challenges:

Summer presents unique challenges for your skin. Increased sun exposure can lead to sunburn, hyperpigmentation (dark spots), and premature aging. Additionally, hot weather and humidity can cause clogged pores and breakouts.

The Summer Skincare Solution:

Don't let the summer sun steal your shine! Here's a summer skincare routine we recommend at Youthful Obsession, featuring the power of Epionce and Skinbetter:

Morning Must-Haves:

  • Cleanse: Start fresh with a gentle cleanser like Epionce's Gentle Foaming or Lytic Gel Cleanser. This fragrance-free formula removes impurities without stripping your skin's natural moisture barrier, perfect for Maryland summers.
  • Daytime Defense: Lightweight serums are your summer BFFs. Epionce Intense Defense Serum and Skinbetter's Alto Advanced delivers a boost of hydration and antioxidants to keep your skin plump and healthy throughout the Maryland summer. Both products are a great blend of Vitamin C & E, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. Alto Advanced has added antioxidants to help combat environmental pollutants and damage to your skin from blue light, UVA and UVB rays, and IRA radiation.
  • Hydrate: Humectant sprays are great at drawing environmental moisture into your skin and Epionce's toners do just that! You won't find drying alcohol in these products, rather a hydrating, refreshing mist to help cleanse and hydrate the skin. Epionce toners are great for a mid-afternoon quick cleanse, just remember to reapply your sunscreen. Lightweight moisturizers are perfect for the summertime. Epionce's Renewal Facial Lotion Lite is a fan favorite that uses Epionce's Renewal technology to help heal the skin enabling it to remain naturally hydrated.
  • Protect: Sunscreen is non-negotiable! Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 50 or higher sunscreen daily. Skinbetter's Sunbetter products offer SPF 56+ and in sheer or tint. It's is a lightweight, oil-free option that provides excellent sun protection.

Evening Essentials:

  • Cleanse Again: Gently remove sunscreen, makeup, and impurities with your Epionce Cleanser and toner.
  • Exfoliate: Two to three times a week, use a gentle exfoliating product like Skinbetter AlphaRet Exfoliating Peel Pads or Detoxifying Scrub Mask. This helps remove dead skin cells, revealing a brighter, smoother complexion, ideal for a summer glow.
  • Treat & Moisturize: Target your specific concerns! For deeper hydration, consider Epionce's Intensive Nourishing Cream. If fine lines and wrinkles are a worry, Skinbetter AlphaRet Night Cream is a Retinol equivalent to tretinoin 0.05% with added antioxidants and ceremides offering nightly advanced rejuvenation.

Summertime Bonus Tips for [Edgewater, MD] Residents:

  • Hydrate from Within: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

  • Accessorize: Protect your delicate facial skin with a hat and sunglasses.
