Summer is right around the corner. The sun is out brighter than ever, giving us earlier glorious sunrises, and later majestic sunsets. In fact, the heat has already started to creep up on us. With the temperature change, your usual moisturizers may not be providing you with the hydration and moisture your skin needs… or maybe it’s giving you too much. Here are a few moisturizing formulas that will work better in our tropical climate’s summer temperatures.
A great way to start and end your day is with the Peptide Moisturizer which has anti-aging properties. It is a nurturing yet fast-absorbing daily moisturizer with a peptide duo that helps support natural collagen and hydrate skin throughout the summer day.
Another gel moisturizer on the list. The Hydra Moisturizer features hyaluronic acid that naturally attracts moisture, keeping your skin plump and hydrated. The algae and seaweed extract even helps in soothing the skin, and the Pro-vitamin B5 helps hold in the moisture.
The formula of the Momo Puri Gel Cream is lightweight and perfect for the summer months! The peach-scented moisturizer infuses skin with moisture and elasticity to make your skin look and feel pretty as a peach. If you find that this formula is a bit too light for your skin, you can layer another moisturizer on top of it so you can still reap the benefits of this formula while keeping your skin hydrated with your moisturizer of choice.
Another Murad favorite for the summer! The sun’s rays can speed up the aging process, and this age balancing moisturizer is key. The Shea butter, sunflower oil, and an amino acid complex helps improve elasticity and replenishes the skin with long-lasting hydration. The fast-absorbing formula won’t leave you feeling sticky or even like you have a layer of moisturizer on your skin at all.
If you’re looking for a tan but still want to keep your skin protected, the Nuxe Sun Melting Face Cream is perfect. It’s specially formulated to protect from the sun-induced effects of premature aging while letting your skin get tan to perfection. It is easily absorbed into the skin, and unlike many formulas with SPF, it won’t leave a white cast.
Not only does the Unbranded Day Shield moisturize and hydrate your skin, but it also keeps your skin protected! From photoaging to skin darkening, to pimples, the formula helps give your complexion a brighter, fuller, and firmer appearance and feel. The ferment extracts from Black Yeast enhance the soothing and protective properties of all the ingredients by speeding up and deepening their reach. The high SPF 40 formula keeps your skin ready for the sun and even sits well under makeup.
The Nature Aqua Gel/Water Treatment combo is a perfect pairing for your exfoliation needs and your hydration requirements. The Aqua Gel provides mild exfoliation sloughing off the day’s layer of dirt. The Water Treatment is a great follow-up that turns into water droplets upon contact with the skin and creates protective layers to help retain moisture. Use this combo to get summer-ready skin!
Observe how your skin reacts in this hot weather before going out and buying your summer moisturizer! Take into account your daily activities and movements to figure out which moisturizer will work best for you. Finally, never ever, EVER forget to apply sunscreen before you expose your skin to the sun! There’s no better way to protect your skin.
