Warmer temperatures and more sunshine mean that our skin care needs are different from what our winter lineups can provide. Here, NewBeauty the editors explain how they are changing their skincare regimens for the summer.

“I love this product all year round, but U Beauty Resurfacing Compound ($ 88- $ 228) is a very light first step in your skin care that goes well with sunscreen if you want to keep it simple by a hot day. I love all of the EltaMD SPF, but I usually crank up the SPF factor during the summer months. I always have a bunch of Colorescience Total Protection Brush-On ($ 69) on hand in the summer to reapply during the day, especially if I’m going for a walk or jumping outside. I don’t usually wear any foundation, but I like DermaDoctor DD Eye ($ 28) as a bit of extra coverage, color, and SPF protection in the summer. It also works well, even if you reapply during the day. “

“In the summer, I change my rich nighttime moisturizer to something a little lighter and, because I am constantly sweating in the New York heat, I need something that will also protect me from the. acne. Jan Marini Bioclear Face Cream ($ 80) not only repairs and prevents adult acne with glycolic and salicylic acid, but also improves skin texture and tone with the help of extract of the skin. ‘arnica. All year round I make sure to use a potent vitamin C – at the moment I can’t get enough of Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Serum ($ 62) – and a high SPF like Elta MD UV Clear Broad -Spectrum SPF 46 ($ 37). I also use an extra creamy eye cream like Epionce Renewal Eye Cream ($ 74), which uses meadow moss and flax seeds to hydrate and brighten the underside of the eyes.

“The only change I make in the summer is swap my rich moisturizer – I love StriVectin Wrinkle Recode Moisture Rich Barrier Cream ($ 99) – for something lighter, like Youth to the People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream. ($ 48) because there is more moisture in the air and my skin is not as dry. My morning routine usually includes vitamin C (right now LilyAna’s Super C Serum ($ 28), which is a steal from Amazon), a light moisturizer, and then sunscreen. I’m prone to melasma, so I generally like a zinc-based formula like EltaMD UV Restore SPF 40 ($ 37), although I can’t get enough of Supergoop’s Glow Screen! (Starting at $ 17) on days I want to watch more dewier. I also like to keep a face mist near my desk, and although I swap them out often, La Roche-Posay thermal water (starting at $ 13) is the one I keep coming back to. At night I cleanse with whatever I have lying around – I’m obsessed with Tatcha’s Rice Wash ($ 35) – then layer in Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid Serums – Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Serum (29 $) and ISDIN’s new Hyaluronic Concentrate ($ 98) play well together – and top with moisturizer. A few times a week I resurface with chemical exfoliators: if I have a rash I love Dr. Zenovia’s Peel Pads ($ 42), and if I want a more general resurfacing I use a face mask. based on AHA, like Versed Doctor’s Visit ($ 18)), or a glycolic acid serum like Sunday Riley Good Genes ($ 122) (the glycolic version). “

“During the day, I usually rely on thick moisturizers during the winter months, but for the summer, it’s all about getting that natural glow. Right now, I love Sk * p Soothing & Soothing Face + Body Wash ($ 15) and Saint Jane The C-Drops ($ 90) for my daily vitamin C which helps clear my skin without causing irritation. I tend to go for products with naturally occurring ingredients, like Korres Black Pine Super Eye Lift 3D Serum ($ 59) which works to smooth the crow’s feet around my eyes. For my daily moisturizer, a little Payot Radiance Boosting Day Jelly ($ 38), which is cool on the skin and smells like orange marmalade, goes a long way. Daily SPF is a must and Versed’s Guard Up ($ 22) is my favorite broad spectrum SPF because it absorbs completely without leaving a white cast and gives me a cool, dewy finish. At night, Botanika Life Plant Stem Cells ($ 95) + Marula Facial Oil or Prima Night Magic Intensive Facial Oil ($ 88) – two sophisticated ultra-hydrating CBD formulas – help me. to wake up to face the day with plump and happy skin. For those special self-care moments, it’s either the 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask ($ 135) or the ESPA Clean & Green Detox Mask ($ 44).

“I’m naturally oily, so my skin doesn’t warrant a rich moisturizer that I should replace right away. All year round, my morning routine involves a vitamin C serum – SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF ($ 166) is a must for smooth skin like mine – then a peptide-rich formula followed by a hyaluronic acid serum. I currently adore Biba Los Angeles Peptide Serum ($ 85), Hailey Bieber’s favorite, casually, then it’s a layer of PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum ($ 117). If my skin feels like it could use an extra dose of hydration, I’ll apply a moisturizing gel, currently Tatcha Water Cream ($ 68). The last is always sunscreen. Love Native’s new line of mineral sunscreens – their Coconut Pineapple Facial Sunscreen ($ 16) smells like a piña colada – but if I’m light on makeup this day There, I’ll be using Alastin’s HydraTint ($ 55), which doubles as an SPF and a sheer foundation. In the evening, I cleanse first with Tula Purifying Cleanser, then I cleanse with Tata Harper Clarifying Cleanser for a radiant clean. Then it’s a potent highlighter to try and undo the sun’s sins – Bynacht Reverse Sun Recovery Serum ($ 310) is no joke – then it’s back to peptides and hyaluronic acid before it hits the nail on the head. sleep.
