Achieve Your Best Summer Skin with These 2024 Summer Skincare Treatments and Tips

Summer is synonymous with sunshine, vacations and outdoor adventures. But while you’re enjoying the warmer weather and longer days, your skin is likely facing some unique challenges.

Just as you switch up your wardrobe and adjust your lifestyle for the warmer months, it’s essential to give your skin some extra attention during the summer season. AESTHETICS 360° Face & Body Center in Milwaukee understands the importance of adapting your skincare routine to the changing seasons, offering a range of products, treatments, and expert tips to ensure your skin stays healthy and radiant all summer long.

How Summer Weather Affects Your Skin

As the sun shines brighter and temperatures rise, your skin’s environment undergoes significant changes. Increased sun exposure requires extra measures to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can lead to skin cancer, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and sagging.

Additionally, the summer heat and humidity can leave your skin feeling sweaty, oily and prone to breakouts. These environmental changes call for adjustments in your skincare products to prevent excess oiliness while providing essential hydration.

While many people associate a tan with a healthy glow, it’s important to understand that tanning is your skin’s defense mechanism against UV radiation. Melanin production increases to protect deeper layers of the skin, but prolonged exposure can still cause damage. The American Academy of Dermatology emphasizes the importance of practicing safe sun habits, with proper SPF protection being the number one tip for summer skincare in Milwaukee.

Why Sunscreen is Your Summer BFF

How exactly does sunscreen work to shield your skin from harmful rays? Sunscreen utilizes a combination of organic and inorganic ingredients to either reflect, scatter or absorb UV radiation. Inorganic molecules like titanium dioxide form a physical barrier on the skin, while organic components like oxybenzone absorb UV rays and convert them into heat.

Gone are the days of greasy, uncomfortable sunscreens. With advancements in skincare technology there are now sunscreen formulas to suit every preference, from tinted lotions to mineral options.

Looking for a recommendation? Ask your AESTHETICS 360° clinical aesthetician about the best sunscreen options for your skin from top medical-grade skincare brands like Skinbetter Science, Alastin and Revision Skincare.

SPF protection is also available in makeup form — like Skinbetter Science Sunbetter TONE SMART SPF 68 Sunscreen Compact, available at AESTHETICS 360° — making it easier than ever to incorporate sun protection into your daily routine. Experts recommend wearing a minimum of SPF 30 daily on exposed areas of your skin, and don’t forget to reapply throughout the day for optimal protection. For those who still crave a sun-kissed glow, modern self-tanning products and bronzers provide a natural-looking tan without the risk of sun damage.

Tips for Glowing Summer Skin in Milwaukee

In addition to sun protection, it’s essential to adjust your skincare routine to address the specific challenges of summer. The combination of heat and humidity can lead to excess oil production, clogged pores and acne breakouts, so it’s crucial to cleanse your skin thoroughly morning and night to remove sweat, dirt and oil.

Look for a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of it’s natural oils. And don’t skip exfoliation. Regular exfoliation promotes cell turnover and prevents clogged pores. Exfoliation is particularly important during the summer months, as it helps to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and promote cell turnover. However, it’s essential to choose the right exfoliant for your skin type and to use it gently to avoid irritation or over-exfoliation. For oily or acne-prone skin, a salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide-based exfoliant may be particularly effective, while those with sensitive skin may prefer a gentler option like a lactic acid or fruit enzyme-based exfoliant. Exfoliating 1-2 times a week is typically ideal!

In addition to cleansing and exfoliating, it’s essential to hydrate and nourish your skin during the summer months. Look for lightweight, oil-free moisturizers and serums that won’t clog your pores or feel heavy on your skin.

Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, peptides, and ceramides can help to hydrate and replenish your skin without causing breakouts or greasiness. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out!
