It’s summer, the season for all things sunny, salty and sweaty!
As much as we love summertime, it’s super important to remember to take care of your skin while you’re having fun in the sun. Why? Because UV rays + salt + sweat = a cocktail for a big-time skin crisis.
What’s the secret to summer skincare? Keep reading to discover very effective treatments for 5 of summertime’s most common skin concerns.
Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature skin aging.
Wrinkles are a normal part of life, and we’ll all eventually get them once we reach a certain age. However, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can permanently damage your skin’s structure and play a huge role in causing skin aging prematurely and excessively.
- Pigmentation changes such as age spots, liver spots (solar lentigines) and freckles
- Loss of skin tone (decreased elasticity)
- Rough, uneven skin texture
- Broken capillaries (spider veins), usually around the nose and chest
- Redness and blotchiness
Want to reduce wrinkles and other skin damage down the line? Wear sunscreen – no excuses!
DERMALOGICA has a variety of moisturizing products that also have 50 SPF, ideal for both summer and daily use.
For many of us, summer tends to make our once-normal t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) a lot shinier by afternoon. If this applies to you, try switching from your normal daily moisturizer to one that prevents oiliness and breakouts.
It’s recommended to switch your usual moisturizer for a lighter one during the hotter months, especially if your skin is in the “normal to oily” category.
DERMALOGICA offers an extensive line for oily skin conditions and acne-prone skin.

Yep, sunspots – Those dark splotches that you notice on your face that seem to get even darker during the summer months.
No worries! It’s possible to make them fade away, and it’s probably a lot simpler than you think.
First, apply sunscreen daily. The sun can cause the spots to become more pigmented and make them look even darker.
Next, apply a brightening treatment.
We recommend DERMALOGICA’S Power Bright line. It includes everything you need to banish these spots and prevent future ones!
