Our Top 5 Tips to Support Your Skin When It's Humid AF

Our Top 5 Tips to Support Your Skin When It's Humid AF

Not sure about y'all but we're feeling like the humidity in Brooklyn this summer has been truly wild. It feels like you step out of your building and just start sweating immediately. Truly, summer is here, and with it comes the heat (which we love) and humidity (which... meh). While we love soaking up the sunshine and enjoying those long, lazy days, our skin might need just a little extra TLC to stay happy and healthy. With that in mind, we thought we'd put together some helpful hints on how to support your skin this season to get that glow going. Let's get into it!

1. Keep It So Fresh and So Clean Clean

First things first: srsly, cleanse, cleanse, cleanse! With the humidity cranking up your sweat and oil production, your skin can easily get clogged and congested. Use a gentle cleanser morning and night to keep your skin fresh and free from impurities. And now is the perfect time to try a double cleanse in the evening if you’re wearing sunscreen and makeup. Your pores will thank you!

2. Lighten Up That Moisturizer

When the air is thick with moisture, you don’t need a heavy cream weighing you down. Switch to a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that hydrates without clogging your pores. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin that lock in moisture and keep your skin plump and hydrated without the heavy, greasy feel.

3. Sun Protection, Always

We say it all the time - sunscreen is your BFF, especially in the summer. Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher every day, even when it’s cloudy. Don’t forget those often-missed spots like your ears, neck, and the tops of your feet. Reapply every two hours if you’re spending the day outside.

4. Hydrate Inside and Out

Staying hydrated is key to keeping your skin looking its best. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body and skin hydrated. For an extra boost, incorporate hydrating mists into your skincare routine. A refreshing spritz of a facial mist with ingredients like rose water or aloe vera can instantly cool and hydrate your skin, helping you keep that dewy summer glow.

5. Embrace Face Oils

Might seem weird but yes, even in the summer, face oils can be your bestie for real! Go for lightweight, non-comedogenic oils like jojoba or squalane that won’t clog your pores. These oils help balance your skin’s natural oil production, keeping it moisturized and glowing. Plus, they’re perfect for soothing any sunburns or irritation after a long day in the sun. And, this is probably a just a wild coincidence but our All Day Slay Daytime Balancing Oil has both of those ingredients and more! It's super lightweight and makes the perfect summertime face oil.

So there you have it—your go-to guide for keeping your skin happy and healthy during the humid summer months. Remember, a little extra care goes a long way in ensuring your skin stays happy and refreshed all season long. So, grab your sunscreen, sip that water, and keep shining!
