Summer skin care routines during the Coronavirus pandemic might create some challenges. Men and women have been stuck at home and social distancing for months. We were not ready for that change of pace, and our skin was not either. A mixture of stress and 2020’s newest accessory, a face mask, might have been the cause for breakouts. As the country starts to reopen, our skin might be in for another shock. SKINNEY Medspa is featured on Skin care.com in an article titled, “Summer, Social Distancing, and Skin Care: Here’s How to Adjust Your Beauty Routine.” Experts discuss how to transition our skin care routines back into the real world.
less makeup, more skin care
As the heat cranks up this summer, skin care is vital if you are wearing makeup and a mask at the same time. The combination could be a cause for clogged pores and irritation. Experts suggest ditching heavy makeup products this summer since most people will wear masks out in public. If you must put on makeup, try a tinted moisturizer. Another option would be to focus on areas that are not covered by a mask, like the eyes.

Summer skin care routines should take a less is more approach, said SKINNEY Medspa esthetician, Josie Holmes. “I find that utilizing a serum that has multiple benefits is much better than layering a variety of serums for those same benefits.” Holmes recomends SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum. It goes after fine lines and wrinkles. It works to moisturize the skin.

find a good cleanser
Sweat, dirt, and bacteria can build up on the skin during warmer months, so our summer skin care needs to ramp up. That is why a good cleanser is essential to have in your arsenal. As we spend more time outdoors and restrictions loosen, you might start wearing makeup that was sitting around during quarantine. To combat skin issues, experts say to cleanse your face in the morning, night, and after taking off a face mask. A foaming cleanser is recomended to remove impurities from the skin.
Summer skin care products for acne-prone skin can be different. Professionals say to look for a cleanser with salicylic acid. It works to prevent pores from getting clogged and helps remove clogs that have been formed. Look into a combination product with salicylic acid and charcoal. It will help to absorb oil on the skin.
moisturizer & sunscreen
If you are wearing a mask, it is a good idea to use a lightweight moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid is a crucial ingredient for hydrating the skin. Experts cannot reiterate enough the importance of sunscreen in your summer skin care routine. Use at least SPF 30 with the words “broad spectrum” on the label.
