If you’ve ever wondered why you should tailor your skincare routine to the season, think about your closet. Just like you adjust your clothing from season to season, your skincare routine should reflect the time of year. As we move from spring to summer, our skin's pH levels can move outside of what is considered its optimal range, causing side effects that are less than ideal. Think areas of extreme dryness, flakiness, and excessive oil production.
What does that perfect summertime skincare routine look like for oily and combo skin? Youth To The People has got you covered so you can achieve your best skin in the hotter summer months.
The Superfood Cleanser is the perfect opening act to this superstar lineup. Packed with antioxidant-rich superfoods, vitamins, chamomile, and aloe, this daily pH-balanced cleanser deep cleans your pores, soothes your skin, and washes your skin in vitamins and antioxidants.
Exfoliation is key for proper skin health and to prep your skin to properly absorb all of your treatments and moisturizers. The Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial will loosen and remove dead skin, while caffeine energizes and boosts the effects of the rest of your routine. Exfoliate with the Energy Facial one to three times per week.
The Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist is an antioxidant-packed hydrator and soothing agent formulated to use pre- and post-makeup and throughout the day. Adaptogens alleviate redness, irritation, and dehydration in the skin caused by environmental stressors. Using this mist as a calming serum, cooling agent, and quick pick-me-up will promote overall skin health. Use this mist daily, morning and night, and as needed.
A flash-absorbing oil packed with tons of antioxidant-rich berries, moisturizing non-comedogenic oils, and plant-based squalane, the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil brings balance to all skin types by helping to retain moisture, guarding against both excessive dryness and excessive oiliness.
The Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is the cherry on the top of this summer routine. This ultra-lightweight hydrator is like a much-needed drink of water. It’s formulated with plumping hyaluronic acid, antioxidant-rich superfoods, vitamins, and soothing aloe, making it the perfect closer for an oily/combo skincare routine. Use this moisturizer daily, both morning and night.
Finding balance within your skin can be a challenge, especially with shifts in the seasons and environments. It is important to listen to what your skin is telling you—sometimes a routine shakeup is what you need to balance skin in the summertime.
