Heatwave Skin Care: Why We Should Be Prepared

Summer Skincare Routine

Heatwave Skin Care 

Thanks to climate change, the extreme heat and blistering sunshine that heatwaves bring are likely to become a more common occurrence in  Vancouver. A lot of skin problems are caused by the summer heat and glare of the sun, such as acne, open pores, and sunburn. Summer is the perfect time to go without makeup, but when choosing products and formulas, you need to make sure they are designed to withstand heat, humidity, and even sweat in order to stay fresh.

It’s not only about beating the summer heat, but also heatwave skin care. Heatwaves caused severe problems and some deaths last year. Despite being hot and humid, this heatwave caused severe damage to the skin and cells.

Sunscreen! You Guessed Right

Summers will be windy, hot, and sunny, so sunscreen is a must-have item in your handbag. Ensure that the SPF is appropriate for the summer in your city. You should apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside in order to allow it to completely penetrate your skin and prevent you from getting tanned. You should reapply sunscreen as necessary. It is possible to buy sunscreen in a wide range of forms, such as creams, gels, sticks, sprays, and spray bottles. All you need to do is find the product that suits you best.

Skin Care Tip: Avoid Thick Creams

When the temperature is high, you do not want to have to deal with multiple layers of skincare that are melting off your face. If

you’re using a moisturizer, make sure that you use something lighter and that you let it absorb before applying your makeup for the day. It would be better to try gel-cream formulations as they are lightweight and hence the best option for summer months when the humidity level is high.

Waterproof Makeup

We’re in the midst of summer when the sun shines and the temperature rises. You should know a few things about becoming waterproof before grabbing that smudge-proof foundation or waterproof mascara. It contains special components that may cause skin problems and is thicker. Makeup that is perspiration- and oil-resistant is thicker and contains special components.

The key to achieving a summer-ready look is choosing lighter makeup formulas. There is no question that creams are the best option in terms of gliding on smoothly and creating natural dewy or bronzed effects. When it comes to those hot summer months, cooling mists also work well for setting makeup and leaving your skin refreshed. Using the setting spray, you can prevent your makeup from sliding down your face by creating a light layer of protection.

Never Forget to Stay Hydrated

Hydration is essential. You might believe that only persons with dry or dehydrated skin need to be concerned about hydration. But hydrating your skin is similar to hydrating your body: Your body needs moisture to look and feel its best, and your skin, regardless of skin type, does as well.

Water is often underestimated for its power and effects on your skin and general health. You are protected by your skin, which holds lipids and water, limits fluid loss, and regulates your body temperature. Getting radiant, vibrant, and healthy skin is as easy as drinking more water.

Freshen up With Rosewater

Your skin will appear radiant and glowing when you use rosewater. During summer, keep fresh rosewater in your refrigerator and spray it on your face and skin several times a day to keep your skin healthy and tan-free. Despite the scorching summer, you can see immediate results on your dull skin and make it more radiant and softer.
