Skin Care Products You Should Be Using This Summer!

Summer calls for more time outside and often spent in the sun. With the days being longer and warmer, the weather can lead to some unintended beauty issues, which is why we are bringing you this skin care update!

The team of professionals at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg is always happy to share their advice on selecting the ideal skin care products and treatments to bring out the healthy glow of your natural skin.

Skin Care Products To Avoid This Summer

Before considering the best summer-friendly routine, products, and treatments for your skin, let’s first look at the kind of products to avoid once the heat, sun, and humidity kick in, especially if you’re still using products left over from last winter.

Facial Oils

In warmer weather, it may be a good idea to remove all oils and serums from your daily skin care routine. After all, higher temperatures and increased humidity naturally cause your face to produce more oil.

AHA and Retinoids

While alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) facial treatments and retinoids keep your skin clear and glowing, these products can be especially irritating during the summer months. Consider only using them nightly or every other night if your skin is particularly sensitive.

Exfoliating Facial Scrubs

New cell turnover starts to speed up with higher daily temperatures, making your skin more sensitive to scrubs.
