Keep cool with summer skincare

 As the weather heats up, use your daily skincare routine to cool down! Switch over to soothing, refreshing, and cooling skincare products to keep skin feeling happy and fresh.

Gel creams are your friends

When summer temperatures increase, traditional facial creams can feel unbearably thick and sticky. In the humidity and warmth, your skin naturally releases more sebum, which also tends to feel more liquid on the surface of your skin. Turning to light-feeling gel creams can be one solution for dealing with the increase in oil and stickiness.

We have made it easy for you to quickly find the right moisturizer for your skin needs. You can filter all moisturizers by product type and instantly get a list of what you are looking for. Feel free to add additional filters for your skin type and to see which of the products are best-sellers.

Look for more aloe

There’s a reason aloe is the go-to treatment for sunburns (though hopefully you won’t have any sunburns this summer by being diligent with your sun protection). It’s naturally soothing, moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory, making it the perfect all-over body and face treatment for the summer.

Your Top 3 favorite aloe products:

  • COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. It not only completely blocks the UVA and UVB, but also moisturizes your dry skin.
  • Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel. The summer classic with 92% aloe extract. Pro tip: Layer with another moisturizer on top to increase your skin’s moisture levels. Keep your aloe gel in the refrigerator for the ultimate refreshing after-sun care!
  • Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner. The go-to for clear and hydrated skin during the summer, packed with aloe water, snail mucin and salicylic acid for clean pores.

Cool down with watery masks

One of our favorite ways to quench thirsty skin in the summer is by using watery, hydrating masks. Masks that have a more watery essence can help to increase your skin’s water content without contributing to excess oiliness.

The summer heat and sun can sap the water from your skin. Try the “1 Day 1 Mask” method to keep skin hydrated and plump by using an inexpensive daily mask every day.

Ingredients to look to for hydration:

  • Aloe vera
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Snail mucin
  • Honey
  • Centella
  • Cucumber

Pro tip: Just like with aloe gels, sheet masks feel heavenly when kept in the fridge and used to cool down your skin!
