This may seem contradictory, yet our skin needs balance in all these aspects to stay healthy and look its best year round. Before we hop into the best skincare products for humid weather, let’s first talk about some key habits you can uptake to help your skin during the humid summer season.
During the summer, keeping the skin cool is the most essential way to improve your skin’s condition during hot and humid weather. Keeping the temperature of your skin lower will tighten the pores, reduce excessive oil production and firm the skin. To do this, we recommend rinsing your face with cold water after cleansing both morning and night. Additionally, we also recommend placing a large serving spoon or metallic facial roller in your freezer to chill. Use either to massage the face in the mornings to instantly cool the skin while tightening, firming and draining water retention from the face. This is a amazing trick that even celebrities practice to ensure they look their best every morning.

If you have dry skin, the hot humid summer season can almost be the most challenge time of the year. Not only does your skin remain dry year round, but it also becomes oily in the summer, yet dry at the same time. This feeling can is commonly linked to skin dehydration due to the increase in temperature. For this situation, it’s important to focus on using cooling and hydrating serum and cream to maintain balance in your skin. We recommend using a lightweight cooling cream in a small amount during the day to ensure our skin stays moisturized without over applying cream. Using a buildable calming and cooling cream that is rich in hydration is the best way to maintain your skin during the summer season.

#5 Balancing Cream – For Oily & Normal Skin Types
If you have normal or oily skin, it is still important to use proper cream during the day, but remember, just because it’s a cream does not mean it needs to be heavy. We recommend using a cream that is gel based with moisturizing agents to ensure your skin is balanced throughout the day. Using a lightly moisturizing and hydrating gel cream will not only keep moisture and hydration levels under control, but it will also provide the light-weight anti-aging care your skin needs daily. For that, we recommend using a maximizing cream that boosts the skin and the skincare products you use in your routine.
