Do you like taking care of your skin and hair? So it is important that you know why you should adopt a new skincare routine in summer, and especially what to replace your winter products with. Answers.

Why change your beauty routine in summer?

A beauty routine, whether dedicated to skin or hair care, must be expertly composed according to your needs. And these change according to the seasons. In winter, the skin tends to be dry quickly, because it is exposed to wind and cold. Ditto for the hair! But when the weather is fine, the skin not only needs to be hydrated, but also protected from the sun. In short, you do not have the same needs as you undergo the hot temperatures of the summer or rather cool of the winter. Depending on the season, you can also add and remove beauty gestures. For example, a hydrating skincare mist will be perfect in spring / summer to spray a little freshness throughout the day. On the contrary, an all-in-one balm is ideal for nourishing cold-damaged skin in winter.

Beauty routine: which face treatments to adopt in summer?

When it's hot, you only think of one thing: freshness. Exit too rich creams or make-up too busy during the day, the leitmotif is lightness. On the skincare side, opt for a moisturizing serum before applying a day cream. How to choose it? Bet on a moisturizer, and choose a gel / cream or light texture instead. Too nutritious and comforting care is often not pleasant to wear in summer and will be more adequate in winter. If some dermatologists advise to wear sunscreen all year round, their advice applies especially in summer since it is the moment when the sun's radiation is most present and intense. So think about putting on a protection to fight daily against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB (skin aging, superficial burns, brown spots, skin diseases ...). Also, don't forget to use an eye contour treatment, essential for moisturizing this fine and fragile part of the face, whatever the season. In summer, still prefer a less rich and fresher texture: in addition to being more pleasant to apply, it will give you an effect of freshness and will wake up your look. As previously explained, a refreshing and hydrating mist can also be introduced into your daily beauty routine. Take it all day with you and spray it as soon as the need arises. Little tip: for more freshness, place your mist in the refrigerator beforehand!

Beauty routine: which hair treatments to adopt in summer?

Hair doesn't have the same needs in summer as it does in winter. Why ? They just don't experience the same assaults. This is why you can adapt your routine. If you spend your summer at the beach, sand, salt and the sun are not the allies of your hair because they tend to dry out. The sun also tends to change the intensity and color of your coloring. How to avoid this? By spraying a UV protective spray specifically designed to protect your hair before leaving your home, and often during the day if you spend it at the beach. Then, washing in the summer is often more frequent since we sweat more than where we bathe in the chlorine of the swimming pool or the salt water of the sea. Our advice? Bet on a very mild shampoo, ideal for frequent washing. Also, do not forget the conditioner and above all, perform deeper and longer treatments such as masks or oil baths more regularly than usual, especially if you are exposed to the sun. Finally, maybe you also want to turn to products with a more summery smell: fruits, monoi, vanilla ... The choice is wide!
