Summer Skincare Routine For Dry Skin

by - June 18, 2019

Summer is finally here, which means, it's time to switch up our skincare routine. If you have dry skin, you know the struggle of dealing with tight, rough, and dull skin, especially after washing your face. Once summer comes around, we tend to spend more time outdoors. For this exact reason, we need to protect our skin from the sun and the bad side effects that come with it. Like getting a sunburn, dark spots caused by the sun, and wrinkles! Taking care of your skin is really important no matter the type of weather. Down below, I will be sharing some of my favorite tips for dry skin during summer.


It's important to use a moisturizer that is fragrance-free because it can irritate the skin, especially if you have dry sensitive skin. Make sure to wear sunscreen every single day, especially during the warmer days to avoid the sun's harmful rays. I like to use lightweight formulas, especially if I'll be wearing makeup that day.


Always make sure to take off your makeup before heading to bed, and I mean always! No matter how exhausted you are. Trust me, I've been there, so I know the feeling of wanting to go straight to bed after a long day, but still, try to make an effort in removing all of your makeup before going to sleep. It can be really damaging to the skin as it clogs pores, causes breakouts, and wrinkles! Every time I've fallen asleep with makeup on, it over dries my skin. When looking for the right cleanser, I always make sure to look for one that is meant for sensitive skin, so it won't leave my skin feeling dry. (Not all cleansers are created equal.)


Exfoliating is great for your skin as it gets rid of dead skin cells clogging your pores. I tend to exfoliate my skin 1-2 times per week depending on my skin throughout summer. Make sure to go for gentle exfoliators and try staying away from harsh ingredients that can leave your skin feeling sensitive when being exposed to the sun. After a long day of wearing makeup and being outdoors, I recommend taking the time to apply a face mask, as it will leave your skin feeling soft, glowing, and silky smooth.

4.) LIPS.

Part of your skincare routine should include your lips! Take time to exfoliate your lips 1-2 times per week. Avoid exfoliating if not necessary, as the skin on the lips is thin. Overdoing it can dry them out and cause them to look worse than before. Afterward, apply a lip balm, and you are ready to go.


After a long day of being outdoors, all I want to do is go home and take off my makeup, pamper my skin with rich moisturizers, and facial oils. While we sleep our body and skin repair themselves at night. It's important to take care of your skin before heading to bed. That way you keep your skin hydrated, feeling good, and looking healthy until morning.
