Warm weather brings a whole slew of skin-care challenges and questions like, "Do I really have to moisturize even if it's 100 degrees out and my face feels oily?” (Spoiler alert: Yes.)
Check out these 7 important steps you should keep in mind as the weather gets warmer.
1. SPF, SPF, SPF.
It's the most important, fundamental, don't-leave-home-without-it tip:Wear sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on all exposed skin. Don't forget about hands, feet, ears, and lips.
Even though it's our first tip on this list, make sure sunscreen the last step in your skin-care routine
2. Lighten up your skin-care routine.
The heat and humidity of summer means you can swap out a heavier cleanser (think cream or oil cleanser) in favor of a gentle, foaming option.

3. Don't skip the moisturizer.
Despite the weather being hot and humid, you still need to moisturize. Even if your skin already feels oily, you should always follow cleansing with a moisturizer.
4. Invest in a good Vitamin C serum.
Vitamin C is great year-round, but all the more important in the summer, Vitamin C helps prevent hyperpigmentation, improve the appearance of fine lines, and can help with collagen production. Layer a few drops on your skin between cleansing and moisturizer.

5. Don't forget to exfoliate.
Dermatologists are often reminding us not to over-exfoliate, but during the summer it is the opposite. Especially if you have oily skin, "more exfoliation" into your skin-care routine really helps. That doesn't mean a daily dose of all your favorite acids, but try slowly increasing the amount of days you exfoliate per week.
6. Cut down your tub time.
Between workouts, beach days, and plain old summer sweat, many of us shower more than once a day during the summer. Try keeping showers short, around four to five minutes. Over-showering, or showering in water that is too hot, can lead to over-drying your skin, leading to inflammation and even summertime eczema.
