Summer Skincare Routine


With the severe change of weather in the summer – hello heat and humidity! – you really want to be mindful of what skincare products you’re using each season. For example, in the winter, I’ll use a thicker, heavier face cream, while in the summer I’ll use a lighter one because I don’t need it – and also, I break out from the combo of heat + a heavy cream. Today, I’m sharing which products I use during the summer!

Summer Skincare Routine


If you’ve been following me for a while, you know the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is one of my holy grail products. I’m obsessed and have been using it for almost 10 years now! It’s soooo gentle, but so effective. It’s a rice based powder that you pour into your hand (about 1/2 a teaspoon), then wet and rub together, to create a paste. You gently massage it all over your face (really get that nose area!) and wash off. I do this two times a week in the shower and it keeps my skin bright, smooth and even. It’s gentle enough to use everyday if needed!


After you exfoliate and/or cleanse, apply this dreamy, sheer moisturizer. It’s called Active Moist and contains Silk Amino Acids which gives it the amazing texture. I like to apply it right after I get out of the shower, or splash my face with cold water in the morning, because it absorbs best when my skin is slightly damp. I bring it all the way down to my neck area as well. What’s great about this moisturizer is it’s ideal for summer – it’s so light and sheer.


I am VERY picky about my SPF. Most SPF makes me break out. The Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defense passes the test. It’s invisible just like the name says, weightless, and blends beautifully into your skin. I LOVE that it also protects against blue light that comes from our phones and computer screens! It’s packed with Green Tea Antioxidant so it feels really nourishing and is also great for sensitive skin. I apply this right over my moisturizer in the morning, and reapply as needed throughout the day. Don’t forget to get your neck too!

Free Exfoliator!

I’m so excited because for the next 24 hours only – Dermalogica is offering a FULL size of my favorite exfoliator, the Daily Microfoliant (a $59 value), for FREE when you spend $100 on Dermalogica.com.

    […] hydrating serum is a bit of splurge, but if you feel like you need a little extra boost in your skincare routine, I recommend it. It blocks out harsh pollutants and blue light – which are both so damaging to […]
