Having a dedicated skincare routine is essential, but did you know you should be switching things up seasonally?
At the start of every summer, we all expect a beautiful, glowing complex. However, the Texas heat and humidity can do everything but make our skin attractive. Instead, we are forced to deal with splotchy, sunburnt, and sometimes hyperpigmented skin.
Many people stick to their regiment year-round but read on for important tips and treatments that should be on your radar in the coming months. And, when it comes to summer skincare, much of the conversation is focused on prevention methods.
Whether you’re dealing with extra oil, shine, or the occasional sunburn, we have some expert ideas for you.
The Summer Switch Up
So, why is it important to switch things up in the summer? More time outside, sun exposure, and higher temperatures will all take a toll on our bodies, but especially our skin.
To keep a healthy glow for years to come, take note of our summer skin care tips.
1. Double Cleanse
If you keep up with the latest trends or follow beauty bloggers and influencers, you may know this one, but it’s just a generally good tip to have in your beauty regimen arsenal.
Double cleansing is a good practice, but especially in summer when excess sweat, dirt, and grime can cling to our face and clog our pores. Wash your face once to remove the surface layer of dirt and then cleanse again to get a deeper clean.
2. Check Your Products
Many people don’t realize that some products are better suited for specific seasons. Take a look through your beauty bag and medicine cabinet; do your products meet summer standards?
Reach for items that are lighter, allow your skin to breathe, and ideally have SPF. We recommend Elta MD sunscreen. We offer clear and tinted, so contact us today!
3. Don’t Neglect Your Eyes and Lips
Wearing sunscreen is essential, but it’s also important to protect your eyes with sunglasses and using a lip balm or Chap Stick with SPF, too. Do your eyes get irritated in the summer?
Try dipping cotton pads in cold potato juice and holding over your eyes. Take advantage of our summer specials now! We offer Restylane Refyne & Defyne, which are dermal fillers.
4. Establish a Skincare Routine

5. Wear the Right Fabrics
Cotton and other lighter fabrics are ideal for summer weather. Wearing tight clothes and heavy fabrics can cause irritation, make sweaty parts of the body itch, and even lead to rashes or skin infections.
6. Replace Your Moisturizer
We mentioned above the importance of replacing your products seasonally, but if you only make one change, this should be it.
Swap out your heavy winter face cream for a quick absorbing gel-like one. This will be more gentle on your face and allow your skin to breathe more.
7. Take Care of Sunburns
It’s okay—we’ve all been there, you left your house without sunscreen or didn’t reapply as often. While preventing sunburn is ideal, we know things happen.
If you do suffer a sunburn, even a minor one, be sure to treat it right away! Keep aloe at home or pick up some chamomile oil or calendula, all three are great for anti-inflammation and will soothe your skin.
8. Prevent Wrinkles
9. Prevent Hyperpigmentation
Pigmentation occurs when your melanin (our skin cells responsible for our coloring), deposit pigment in the visible layer of skin, typically in uneven blotches.
Many things can trigger the condition, such as genetics, hormones, stress, skin damage, but the most significant and most preventable factor is the sun.
To prevent and avoid hyperpigmentation:
- Protect Your Skin-Age spots, freckles, and other areas of existing hyperpigmentation are all created and encouraged by UV light. Always wear sun protection (SPF 50 is recommended), wear sunglasses, a hat, etc.
- Use Anti-Inflammatory Skincare-Such as calming serums or natural ingredients like aloe. Our skincare gurus can help you with finding the best products for your skin.
