Summer Skincare Routine

Some might say summer is the season of indulgence. Longer days, warmer weather, and Summer Fridays are all reasons to celebrate. However, when it comes to summer skincare, less is more.

During this time of year, we adopt a streamlined approach to taking care of our skin and addressing summer skin concerns like dehydration, clogged pores, and sensitivity. Here are our four essential steps for happy, healthy, and hydrated skin all season long.


By now, you should know not to fear hydration during the summer months. However, that doesn’t mean we skimp on cleansing. After all, no skincare routine is complete without it.

In the summer, impurities, oil, and buildup can take an even greater toll on our skin. We've been loving Succulent Skin Wash, our lightweight, serum-like cleanser, to wash away the summer days. The pH-balanced, sulfate-free formula gently cleanses skin, effectively removing dirt, oil, and impurities without stripping essential moisture. Needless to say, we don’t go a night without it.


When it comes to hydration, people tend to fall into one of two camps: those who fear clogged pores and prefer lightweight hydration, and those who opt for dense, rich formulas. Your skin type, location, and climate can influence where you land on this spectrum. However, hot temperatures and high humidity are no reason to skimp on this crucial step in your routine.

Whether you despise humidity and heavy textures, or are prone to dryness and irritation during the summer months, the right moisturizer will keep your skin happy, healthy, and hydrated. Beyond ensuring your skin looks and feels comfortable, the right moisturizer will support your skin barrier, giving you a smooth, supple appearance.


Exposure to saltwater, chlorine, and more time in the sun can dry out even the dewiest complexions. That's why replenishing and moisturizing each night is non-negotiable.

We recommend Super Cell Deep Moisturizing Cream. Rich and dense in texture, Super Cell is formulated with orchid stem cells, phytoceramides, essential fatty acids, and a unique liposome delivery system. These ingredients help maintain a healthy skin barrier. Apply it in the evening for skin that feels firm and radiant by morning.


Hydration, hydration, hydration -- when the sun is sapping your skin of moisture, Hydrascape Reserve Emulsion is an easy way to replenish that dry, dehydrated skin to give your complexion a much needed boost and a little glow.

Formulated with vegan ceramides, this water-in-oil emulsion provides long-lasting hydration without feeling heavy or sticky, instantly plumps and brightens complexion, and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles.


For those who want to go the extra mile, Subverse Plumping Peptide Serum is your secret weapon this summer. Formulated with a potent peptide, barrier strengthening bioferment, hydrating osmolytes and amino acids that restore hydration homeostasis and improve firmness and elasticity, Subverse is literally plump, juicy skin in a bottle.


Make sure your lips are plump, soft and totally hydrated with Serum Balm, our lip serum formulated with a natural lip volumizing ingredient to condition and hydrate for long-lasting shine and cushion.

    How To Combat Summer Skin Congestion

    We know you've heard it before: the summer season can take a toll on your skin. Despite its many joys, summer comes with some serious pitfalls. Sun exposure, salt water, chlorine, and high temperatures can all impact your skin's health. Excess sweat and sunscreen can also lead to buildup and clogged pores, causing issues like dehydration, breakouts, and uneven texture. You can easily combat summer skin congestion with a skincare routine designed to keep your skin clear and baby soft.

    Get The Look: Boyfriend Blush Trend

    The “boyfriend blush” application is a natural flush of color that sits lower on the cheek. It’s fresh, natural and meant to look as if you’ve just been outside for a brisk walk. It’s also flattering on everyone because you’re recreating a look that naturally occurs in your complexion. I can hear all my Rosacea girls now…’But I have spent years covering up my rosacea’ or ‘I avoid any and all blush trends that involve red/pink tones.’ Well…this may be the blush trend for you.
