LAYERING YOUR SUMMER SKINCARE

LAYERING YOUR SUMMER SKINCARE
 Layering skincare in hot weather can be difficult —the key is choosing textures that sink easily into skin, but the payoff is fresh, glowing, healthy-looking skin all season long. We've come up with some steps to help you layer your skincare

STEP 1: VITAMIN C

No matter what your skin type is, it is beneficial to use vitamin c serum on as a first step of your skincare routine - preferably in the morning (dermatologists recommend incorporating vitamin C serum into your morning routine, as opposed to using it at night). The reason for this recommendation relates to its ability to protect the skin. It’s especially great in summer because it helps fight free radicals from UV rays and other environmental factors while brightening, clarifying, smoothing, and refining the texture of skin. 

STEP 2: SERUM 

We suggest spritzing the face with some water or applying applying serums to damp skin (this increases the product absorption). With your skin damp from your spritz, a treatment face serum penetrates the skin barrier more effectively and helps when addressing issues like breakouts, dull skin, and more. Each of these is targeted for specific benefits, and the results are powerful.

 STEP 3: MOISTURISE

Most skin types benefit from extra hydration even when it’s warm or in humidity, this is generally because the body and skin needs more hydration.  Stay moisturised and look for lighter textures to refresh and rehydrate the skin 

STEP 4: MINERAL SUNSCREEN

We advise a mineral sunscreen as this sits on top of the skin and creates a protective barrier, concluding your skincare routine. 

MINTD RECOMMENDS:

MURAD Correct & Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 45
