Summer is officially here, and with changes in the weather comes a cue to reassess and update your skincare for summer. Adapting your skincare to the weather changes is critical in maintaining healthy skin, ready to face each season’s unique skin challenges. Think summer wardrobe but for your skin. You don’t need a thick winter sweater in the summer; you might pack it away until fall. Skincare works similarly. Normal to oily skin can see more oil production during the summer months. If your skin produces more oil, you should lay off the heavier cream cleansers, ultra-hydrating serums, and night creams. This post will discuss how to switch your summer skincare routine to achieve the best skin possible

Switch Your Cleanser for Summer 

Summer can be challenging for those with normal to oily skin. But here’s the good news: switching from cream cleansers to gel-based products can work wonders. This simple adjustment can help you avoid unnecessary breakouts and maintain a healthy, balanced complexion, giving you confidence and reassurance that your skin is well cared for.

Switch to a lightweight Moisturizer Summer 

I would never forgo a moisturizer but try an oil-free or lightweight lotion or gel-based product. It may work better for your skin during the hot summer months. Using a lightweight product will allow your skin to breathe, which describes its ability to regulate moisture levels and maintain a healthy barrier function. Changing your skincare routine from winter to summer is especially important when your skin is more prone to oiliness in the summer. A lightweight product can help protect your skin and keep it moisturized without overdoing it.

What Skincare Ingredients to Keep and What to Switch in Your Skincare Routine for Summer?

Summer is a great time to give your skin a break from retinol, but that depends on your unique skin. If you feel you can’t go without it, you can always lessen the times you use it and lower the strength. Retinol can break down when exposed to sunlight and, in some cases, increase the risk of hyperpigmentation. Using retinol can be problematic for people who spend a lot of time at the beach or pool for long periods.

Try a portable powdered sunscreen like
