Maintaining healthy, vibrant skin during spring and summer can come with its challenges. As the weather gets warmer, be prepared to keep your skin healthy and hydrated, with the help of our warm weather skincare checklist.
Why should my skincare change during warm weather?
You’re more likely to spend more time outside when it’s nice out, as opposed to colder fall and winter months. Naturally, you’ll start to get more sun exposure, which may irritate your skin.
Yes, this can happen during colder months, too. But the chances of sun damage and weather-related skin troubles are more likely to arise when it’s warmer.
Let’s take a look at the five basic steps our team of estheticians suggests you take during the spring and summer months.
Top 5 Warm Weather Skincare Tips
Decreased Sun Exposure
Decreasing your exposure to the sun is one of the simplest ways to prevent sun damage during warm months. When you protect your face with sunglasses, hats, and SPF, you can prevent brown spots, wrinkles, and broken blood vessels.
Do your best to schedule your time outside during early mornings and evenings, avoiding the strong mid-day sunshine.
At-Home Skincare Regimen
An esthetician-approved at-home skin care regimen includes the following products in order:
Bonus Tip: Be sure to massage your cleanser onto your skin for at least 30 to 60 seconds, and wash it off with lukewarm water, avoiding hot water. When you're done, gently pat your face dry with a towel, without rubbing.
Getting steam facials regularly will help soften your skin and remove impactions (oil, dead skin cells, and dirt) before extractions. The moisture from a steam facial helps the active ingredients of skin care products do their job well.
Start getting regularly scheduled steam facials, and you're sure to rehydrate your face throughout the warm, sunny months.
Maximize Your Peels
Whether you go for an enzyme peel or a chemical peel, you can make the most of your treatment by avoiding direct sun exposure before and after your appointment. A face peel has amazing potential to rejuvenate your skin, so keep your sunhat or ball cap nearby.

Did you know drinking herbal tea is an effective way to heal and nourish your skin from the inside out? Our favorites are green, jasmine, and black tea.
Green tea contains sun-damage-fighting agents that prevent wrinkles. Jasmine tea has antibacterial properties that promote youthful skin. Lastly, black tea energizes you while preventing aging.
As an experienced team of estheticians, there’s a lot more we could say about skin treatments and at-home skincare regimens. You’ll want to implement different skincare habits, depending on your specific skin type and the climate where you live.
