With consistency, the perfect skincare routine will work for you year-round, but there are a few tweaks you can make to help minimize the seasonal side effects that summer can have on your skin.
And who has more effective skincare tips than dermatologists? We checked in with three top doctors to get their best summer skincare tips. Read on to find out how to keep your skin looking its best throughout the summer season — and beyond.
1. Level-Up Your SPF
Dermatologists agree that proper UV protection is by far the most important step in any skincare routine year-round, but especially during the summer when the days are longer and you inevitably spending more time in the sun.
“SPF should be applied every day to areas that are exposed — which often includes the face, neck, chest, ears, and hands — and it is especially important to reapply every two hours, or sooner if swimming or sweating, as people spend more time outdoors in the summer months,” says Dr. Marisa Garshick, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. If you need to reapply on-the-go, she recommends a powder sunscreen like Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50, or an SPF compact like Avène’s Mineral Tinted Compact SPF 50.
