Soak Up the Sun with a Revamped Summer Routine

Delavie Sciences


With the temperatures rising and the sun shining brighter this time of year, it is important to take a step back and look at how you are caring for your skin. Excessive sunlight exposure is one of the most dangerous things for your skin, as it can result in sunburns, sunspots, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. This is why the summertime is a crucial season to pay attention to what your skin needs. Click here to learn more about the dangers of UV rays.


With this being said, here are some recommendations to keep in mind when revising your routine for the summer:

  • Add a sunscreen, (at least SPF 30) to your routine if you have not already. We recommend using an SPF product every day, all year round. Sun exposure in the summer is high due to longer days and more time spent outside, like swimming at the beach or walking in the park. Don’t forget to apply to your ears and your neck!


  • Wear sun protecting clothing and a hat, for added protection when going outside, and limit as much time in direct sunlight as possible.


  • Switch to lighter products, if your skin is feeling sticky and greasy. Since the winter dryness is over, you do not need the rich and heavy products that you needed during those cold months. A hyaluronic acid-based product is recommended as it will maintain hydration in your skin.


  • Use a Vitamin C serum, as this will act as an antioxidant to minimize long-term sun exposure damage. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals to prevent oxidative damage in cells and tissues.


  • Don’t be afraid to exfoliate during these months, even though you may be hesitant to because your skin is its most sensitive. Exfoliation helps your skin glow and eliminate dullness, minimize discoloration, and prevent breakouts. Depending on your skin type, reducing the number of times you exfoliate to 1-2 times per week may be beneficial.
