Summer Skin Do's and Don'ts

by Sorella Apothecary

Seasonal Skin:

When the seasons and temperatures change, your skincare needs to also evolve! Moving into warmer temperatures, heat and sweat naturally stimulate the skin, causing it to produce more oil and may be the perfect opportunity for breakouts to occur. For those who experience dry skin, you might enjoy some extra oil for a change! With each season, you may need to temporarily add products into your routine, allowing your skin time to adjust to the new climate. That being said, consider incorporating one of our gel-based cleansers. The Orange You Jelly Cleanser or The Lychee Willow Bark Cleanser will break down excess oil without compromising your hydration!

Summer Homecare:

A morning routine is crucial, especially if you are noticing an increased amount of oil during the day. We recommend the Daily Greens Moisturizer; this fan-favorite will neutralize redness and mattify the skin, thanks to active ingredients spirulina and evermat. Consider wearing less makeup, or none at all, with an SPF underneath to ensure your skin can breathe and is protected from harmful rays. At Sorella, we are hard-pressed to say SPF is essential all year! Our Tropical Topical Matte SPF 30 absorbs oil while our Quench and Protect SPF 30 will protect thirstier skin types.

Summer Treatments:

We dream all winter about a summer vacation, but it may include more sun exposure and a high UV index, especially if you go somewhere tropical! Your esthetician may recommend treatments that bring balance to the skin, rather than intensive chemical peels or pigment correction. When scheduling appointments, keep your esthetician informed on vacations or regular outings that might involve sun, and be honest about recent exposure! Although a deep exfoliation sounds appealing before a big trip, it can leave your skin vulnerable to unnecessary damage.

Are you just starting a home care routine? We have you covered. The Clear Skin Minis Kit focuses on balancing summer skin and preventing breakouts.

For extra protection, use a hat! Summer hats aren’t just stylish; they are essential. Be sure to pack your wide-brimmed sun hat; this is it’s time to shine!
