Transitioning Your Skincare for Summer

Anyone else have skin that goes a little crazy when the warmer months roll in? You are not alone. Here in North Carolina, the humidity gets out of control around this time and I basically go from having dry, wintry skin to skin that is constantly sweaty and no longer dry. I've learned a few tricks for switching up my cleansing routine and wanted to share them with you! 

1. Switch up your cleansing oil: In the winter months I use the dry/mature version of the Some Call Me Crunchy Cleansing Oil. When the warmer months begin, I switch to the normal/combo version. The dry/mature blend has more olive oil than the normal/combo and can be a little too heavy in the summer (unless your skin is naturally super dry). If you're using the normal/combo in the winter you can try switching to the oily/acne prone for the summer. 

2. Only use your serum once a day: In the winter, I apply our oil based serum after cleansing morning and night. In the spring/summer, I ONLY apply it after cleansing at night because it takes my skin longer to absorb the oils. Also, be sure that you are still using some sort of moisturizer during the warmer months. It can be tempting to skip it because you are sweating so much and your face doesn't feel as dry. You most definitely still want to use a moisturizer so that your body isn't triggered to produce more sebum (which is what clogs your pores). At night I use our body butter as an overnight moisturizer and in the morning I use this one by Beautycounter*. Also, don't forget sunscreen!! I use this and this

3. Toner, toner, toner: Make sure you are using a toner. Some Call Me Crunchy Complexion Mists (we now have two scents: lavender + rose and calendula + frankincense) are the perfect way to tone your skin year round. They help balance out oil production which is what you need to prevent acne and wrinkles.

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
