Is it a watery fluid focused on brightening and hydration, or something with more weight that brings nourishment and soothing to dry skin?

It’s peak summer heat—sweat galore, skin greasy, pores clogged—the last thing you want is a heavy moisturizer that packs richness where your skin needs none. And yet, moisturizers are still an important part of your skincare routine and should not be skipped even in the summer.

We don’t know who needs to hear this, but we can’t emphasize this enough: up to 90% of premature aging is caused by sun exposure. (Not to scare you, but even high exposure to blue light from electronic devices can cause premature aging too!) It’s common knowledge to always wear sunscreen before going out and reapply sun protection once every two hours for maximum effect! And yet, even after all the precautions we take before and during our day in the sun, we don’t talk nearly enough about what we should do to take care of our skin AFTER a long day of attempting to fight off UV rays.
