5 Skincare Tips to Follow This Summer

Check out our esthetician-approved guide to summer skincare!

SPF, SPF, SPF: It’s no surprise that SPF tops our list for summer skincare! It’s the most important, fundamental, don’t-leave-home-without-it tip: Wear sunscreen. At MM Beauty, we recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on all exposed skin – we have lots of great SPF options in-store and online. And don’t forget about your lips! Our Ormedic balancing lip balm is great for the summer!

Lighten Up Your Skincare Routine: In summer, don’t be afraid to lighten up your skincare routine like you would with your wardrobe. For example, the humidity of summer means that you can swap out a heavier cleanser for a lighter, foamier option like our Ormedic Balancing facial cleanser that gently foams away impurities, leaving skin soft, hydrated and clean.

But Don’t Forget to Moisturize: Lightening up your skincare routine doesn’t mean skipping the moisturizer as your skin can still dry out during the summer. Our Prevention Plus Daily Tinted moisturizer is a great option for everyday use and it allows you to lighten up your routine! This sheer formula delivers a hint of color that evens out the skin tone and gives a healthy glow all the while offering protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Invest in a Serum: While serums are great to incorporate into your skincare routine year-round, they’re especially important during the summer as they help to soothe the skin, strengthen its defenses against damage and restore balance and hydration. We suggest layering in a few drops of our Ormedic Balancing Anti-Oxidant Serum between cleansing and moisturizing.

Don’t Forget to Exfoliate: Warmer temperatures and humidity levels can leave your skin feeling oiler leading to clogged pores, breakouts, and dull-looking skin. That’s why it’s so important to exfoliate as it helps remove the build-up of sweat, oil, and dead skin cells. We have some great exfoliation products at MM Beauty and we offer our popular Dermaplaning Facial, which gently removes the outermost layer of dead skin and unwanted hair or peach fuzz, leaving your skin feeling smoother and more vibrant. This exfoliation method is also safe for pregnant mothers and allows you to achieve that instant glow with zero downtime!
