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. Moisturizers help protect your skin barrier, and hydrating moisturizers in particular will allow your skin to produce a normal amount of oil and sebum.

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.

Japanese Beauty, or J-Beauty for short, has been around for a long, long time. From as far back as the Nara Period, women in Japanese society were obsessed with the idea of fair skin. In the Edo Period, we see this sentiment echoed again in a “skincare bible” of sorts that documented various methods and recipes for achieving translucent, blemish-free skin. Fast forward to 2021, J-Beauty is now a stronghold in the cosmetics and skincare industries globally: Shiseido, one of the oldest beauty companies in the world at 149-years-old, is the FIFTH largest cosmetics company in the world. Scientific advancements in J-Beauty laid the foundation for worldwide trends in cosmetics and skincare. (Fun fact: Shiseido was the first company to produce hyaluronic acid from non-animal sources!)

It's that time of year again—seasonal changes often upset not only our lungs and brain, but also the skin, with external irritants. Particularly around May to July, blooming trees, grasses, weeds, and flowers deliver pollen into the air, causing a cacophony for the especially sensitive. On top of seasonal allergens, the month of June marks the official end of spring and the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, with temperatures shooting up in mid-July and mid-August.
