Summer is here and with it the hot temperatures, intense sunlight and increased humidity. These changes also present your skin with new challenges. But how do you adapt your skin care routine to the warm summer months? In this blog post we give you valuable tips on which skin care products are suitable now and which you should avoid.

Why you should adjust your skin care routine this summer

The skin reacts differently to different environmental conditions. For example, in summer it is more exposed to the sun, which can lead to increased sweat production and a tendency to oilier skin. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. In addition, the skin loses more moisture through sweating, which makes intensive hydration necessary. A customized skin care routine will help you effectively address these challenges and keep your skin healthy and radiant.

The right skin care products for summer

Sweating and increased sebum production in summer make thorough but gentle cleansing of the skin especially important. Use a mild cleansing gel or milk to remove dirt and excess oil without irritating or drying the skin. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and keeps the skin fresh and radiant. In summer, however, you should be careful not to exfoliate too often, as this can make the skin more sensitive to the sun's rays. Once or twice a week is sufficient.

In summer, it's important to use light, moisturizing products. Heavy creams can clog pores and leave skin feeling greasy. Instead, choose gel or water-based moisturizers that absorb quickly and provide intense moisture to the skin. An essential part of your summer skincare routine should be sun protection . Choose a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Remember to reapply sunscreen regularly, especially after swimming or sweating.

Skin care products to avoid in summer

Heavy creams and oils are often too rich in summer and can clog pores. It's better to use lighter formulations that don't weigh your skin down. Products with high alcohol content can dry out and irritate the skin. In summer, the skin is more stressed by the sun and sweating, so you should avoid toners and other products that contain alcohol. And even though they smell good, fragrances and essential oils can irritate the skin and cause sun sensitivity. Look for products with no or very few fragrances to protect your skin.


Adjusting your skin care routine during the summer is essential to keeping your skin healthy and glowing. Light moisturizers, regular sun protection and gentle cleansing are the keys to well-groomed summer skin. Avoid heavy, greasy creams and products that contain alcohol and fragrances to prevent skin irritation. With the right products and a little attention, you can enjoy summer to the fullest and take optimal care of your skin.
