Summer Skincare Essentials: Do You Really Need Moisturizer?

Summer Skincare Essentials: Do You Really Need Moisturizer?

Summertime is often associated with carefree vibes, beach outings, and sunny days. But in the midst of enjoying the sunshine, it's critical to remember how important skincare is, particularly for hydrating. The question of whether or not moisturizer is necessary in the summer is still up for debate. While some argue that the skin receives adequate moisture from the humid weather, others maintain that being hydrated is essential year-round. Let's discuss this further and discover this must-have summer skincare product. 


First and foremost, it's critical to understand what moisturiser is and the purpose of adding it in skincare routine.


What is moistuiser and why do we need it?


Moisturiser is a skincare product that gives the skin moisture and nourishment. It is usually applied externally to the skin and comes in the shape of a cream, lotion, gel, or oil. They have occlusives, humectants, and emollients in them, which combine to keep the skin hydrated and prevent dehydration.


Moisturizers are an essential part of skincare routines for people of all ages and skin types. We need it as they help to keep the skin nourished and smooth, while also providing protection against environmental damage and premature aging. It also renews the skin barrier, reduce trans epidermal water loss, imporves skin hydration by providing moisture to the skin cells. By incorporating a moisturizer into your daily skincare regimen, you can maintain healthy and radiant-looking skin year-round.



How moisturizers come to your rescue during summers?

1. Summertime heat and humidity can cause sweating to increase, which may give the appearance that skin is well-hydrated. But this isn't accurate. Humidity can make the air more moisturised, however, this does not always mean that the skin is kept hydrated. Excessive perspiration can cause dryness and irritation by depriving the skin of its natural oils. As such, depending exclusively on the weather to keep your skin hydrated in the summer might not be enough. 

A light weight moisturizer will come to your rescue here. It’ll not only balances your skin’s moisture levels but will also prevent the loss of natural oils. Usually during summers, due to humidity, one does not prefer the feeling of moisturizer on skin, but our lightweight moisturizer has ingredients like niacinamide and aloe vera extract that deeply moisturize but do not feel heavy on the skin due to quick absorption and no sticky residue.  

 

2. Not only this  but skin damage from the sun's harmful UV rays can result in sunburn, early aging, and even skin cancer. All year round, using a SPF is important, but in the summer, when the sun's intensity is at its highest, it becomes even more critical and for some it maybe be uncomfortable to layer products. Your summer skincare routine should include a broad-spectrum sunscreen moisturizer with at least SPF 50 to protect your skin from sun damage.

In this case, an easy and promising solution is to stick to a SPF that offers moisturizing properties too. 3AM’s sunscreen with SPF 50 PA+++ will be your perfect choice for the season, as it will protect and shield your skin with ingredients like zinc oxide, while cucumber extract provides hydration and a cooling sensation, keeping your skin protected and hydrated.

 

3. Furthermore, several skincare issues that can still exist irrespective of the season can be more active in the summer. Issues such as sensitivity, greasy skin, and acne can cause discomfort, which can lead to redness or inflammation. Under such conditions, maintaining balance and avoiding breakouts or irritation can be eased by applying a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer designed for your particular skin type. 

Use moisturizers that are lightweight but hydrating so they won't feel heavy on the skin or clog pores, especially in the summer.

 

4. In addition, air conditioning and interior spaces can aggravate skin dehydration and dryness in the heat. Prolonged exposure to air conditioning can dehydrate the skin, resulting in dry, flaky spots. Consequently, using a moisturizer every day—morning and night—can aid in restoring moisture to the skin and maintaining its suppleness.

Look for moisturizers with ingredients like niacinamide, tomato extract, and mushroom extract, which not only hydrate the skin but also help in calming redness, irritation, and inflammation caused by dry or flaky skin in the summer.
