Summer Skincare 2021

by Jesse Harp

Summer is fast approaching and we know you’re gearing up for serene, poolside days and long hours beneath the sun, so it’s important to be mindful of how this season can take its toll on your skin. Like a good friend helping you apply sunscreen before a day at the beach, Empire Beauty School has you covered with vital skincare techniques to keep your skin vibrant and healthy all summer long.

Before you fully achieve that highly sought-after sun-kissed glow, keep in mind that your skincare routine will require a few changes as we transition into the warmer months, according to esthetics educator, Abby Ealy. Winter often leaves skin dull, dry, and flaky. If you don’t already, Ealy suggests adding a daily or weekly face exfoliate to your routine to erase dead skin cells. Be sure to replenish your skin with a daily moisturizer as well, which will combat additional dullness.

Sunscreen will now become a crucial step in your skincare regimen, according to Ealy. “For spring and summer, SPF is a must,” she says.

Even if you aren’t particularly active outdoors, you will still experience increased sun exposure this summer, so it’s important to always have SPF handy and even make applying it part of your morning ritual. If you’re someone who likes to wear tinted moisturizer, BB, or CC cream, you should select one that has SPF included. Fortunately, you have a wide variety to choose from, as many brands do include this.

If you find yourself in the mood to treat yourself this spring and summer, vitamin-infused facial masks are a great option, Ealy says. The vitamins act to brighten and restore nutrients to your skin. To take your pampering a step further, consider meeting with a licensed esthetician to discuss a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. These treatments will make your skin shine on a whole new level.

For anyone looking to keep up with the summer trends, Ealy says “lashes and brows are the way to go…A lash lift and tint are awesome,” she says. “Also, brow lamination will keep brows in place.”

The summer is a great time to invest in these treatments, as they make getting presentable before going out a lot easier. For those who live active lives and find themselves bouncing from one activity to the next, make-up routines can become a hassle. These treatments allow you to wake up with your lashes and eyebrows already in perfect condition. Lash lifting pushes lashes upward, making them appear more enhanced in shape. Brow lamination is similar in that it accentuates and evens out eyebrows.

With these tips and tricks in your summer skincare toolbox, we know you’ll be ready to stroll the beaches and hop on a carnival ride with your cotton candy in hand. We hope your 2021 summer is one for the books.
