Summer skincare

With the days getting warmer and holidays on the horizon, it’s time to get your summer skincare routine sorted. But what are the best serums for summer, and are there any face serums that can help with oily skin?

Read on to find out all the tips and tricks to organising an amazing summer skincare routine.

4 tips for your summer skincare routine

Ready to take summer by storm? Use these quick and easy tips for brighter, younger-looking skin this summer:

Tip #1: Lighten up your skincare routine

Summer is the time to cut down on layers of clothing, which means it’s also time to lighten up your skincare routine. The heat and humidity means you can swap out those heavier cleansers (e.g. creams and thick oils) for a gentle foaming product instead.

Tip #2: Invest in a Vitamin C Serum

There’s never a bad time to get plenty of Vitamin C, but it’s even more important in summer. Vitamin C helps prevent hyperpigmentation, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and it can even support greater production of collagen. Layer a few drops of your favourite Brightening Serum on your skin between cleansing and moisturising. 

Tip #3: Make exfoliation part of your regular skincare

While you should never over-exfoliate, summer is the best time to exfoliate more often. If you have oily skin, exfoliating regularly will be extremely beneficial during the warmer months. Take a gentle approach by slowly increasing the number of days you exfoliate every week – and use a Resurfacing Serum for dynamic exfoliation.

Tip #4: SPF, SPF, SPF!

There’s not much more to say about it. Protect your skin and keep reapplying your SPF products every couple of hours. 

Which serums are best for summer?

Rather than thick and heavy creams and face oils, serums are perfect for summer because of their lightweight texture. They will never feel heavy on your skin despite the heat and humidity, and they layer really well with sunscreen.

At BOOST LAB, we have a number of brilliant summer face serums to take your skincare routine to the next level:

  • Hydro Boost Serum: The hyaluronic acid in this face serum keeps your skin hydrated and healthy all day long.
  • Brightening Serum: Get your daily boost of Vitamin C with a serum that also keeps your face bright and healthy-looking.
  • Resurfacing Serum: The power of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) work to smooth and brighten your skin while giving you a revitalised complexion all summer long.

Oily skin in summer? Hyaluronic acid is your best friend

If your skin type tends to fall into the oily category, then you need to try our Hydro Boost Serum. It’s a blend of hydrating hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts that improves your skin texture and elasticity. Best of all, it leaves your face with an oil-free finish while reducing the appearance of large skin pores.
