10 skin care products to use in the summer

The way you treat your skin over the summer will affect you all year long. With warmer temperatures and greater sun exposure our skin can react differently and sustain damage if not protected properly. Try to include some or all of these ten skin care products in your routine so that your skin can look its best this summer.

1. SPF

SPF is always essential — you should protect your skin every day. However when the summer comes along and you are spending more time in the sun, you should kick things up a notch when it comes to protecting your skin. If you normally use an SPF 15 but are spending more time outdoors, upgrade to a broad spectrum SPF 30. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. It not only protects you from the sun but can also help reduce the signs of sun damage over time. Make sure to reapply after every two hours you spend in the sun.

2. BB Cream

Wearing heavy foundation doesn’t really go well with hot temperatures. You’ll likely want to switch out your heavier makeup for something more breathable and light. A BB cream is the perfect choice. Try Garnier SkinActive’s 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream which can control shine, minimize the appearance of pores, even skin tone, hydrate and helps prevent sunburn. It’s the perfect way to achieve a beautiful complexion without weighing down your skin with heavy make up.

3. Dark Spot Corrector

Dark spots are more likely to form on our skin with increased sun exposure. If you noticed dark spots on your face you can help fade their appearance with a dark spot corrector. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector formula is infused with antioxidant Vitamins C& E, pink bark essence, and gentle exfoliating lipo-hydroxyl acid to promote surface skin cell turnover to reduce the appearance of dark spots over time with continued use.

4. Charcoal Cleanser

In the summer skin can get oily; with warmer temperatures we sweat more and our pores become more open, allowing sebum and oil to be released onto our skin’s surface. Commit to cleansing your skin twice a day with an effective cleanser such as Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel. The formula is infused with charcoal which can dissolve dirt, excess oil and makeup and mattifies skin’s appearance.

5. Overnight Mask

Our skin can get a little dry and tired-looking with sun exposure so the nighttime is the perfect to help restore our skin with a deeply nourishing and re-energizing moisturizer. Garnier SkinActive’s Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream packs the nourishing qualities of a mask with the hydrating qualities of a moisturizer. Its formula is infused with antioxidant lavender essential oil, hyaluronic and hydroxy acids.

6. Eye Roller

Whether you regularly suffer from dark circles around your eyes or woke up this morning with them due to a late-night summer soirée, there’s an easy fix in your skin care arsenal for that. Garnier’s SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller formula is infused with antioxidant Vitamin C, caffeine and tinted mineral pigments which instantly covers dark circles and shadows. The micro-stimulating, roll-on applicator refreshes and wakes up the eye area. Use this product for a brighter, more even look. Better yet keep this product in the fridge so you can cool off on a hot summer morning.

7. Micellar Water

Whether you’re traveling or on staycation, sometimes you don’t want to come home and be burdened with a super long cleansing routine. That’s where micellar water comes in. You can remove makeup, sweat, dirt and oil from your face in just a few minutes with a few cotton pads. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover and Cleanser gets your skin clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying it in the process.

8. Overnight Peel

If your skin has been looking dull or has dark spots, try an overnight peel to help brighten the appearance of your skin. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Peel helps refine skin texture, can help smooth skin tone and reduces the look of dark spots. Its formula contains glycolic alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) and Vitamin C.

9. Hydrating Moisturizer

Skin can become dehydrated in the summer due to sun exposure, air conditioning and coming in touch with chemicals such as chlorine. Garnier SkinActive’s Moisture Rescue Actively Hydrating Daily Lotion SPF 15 can help restore moisture in dehydrated skin. It has a moisturizing, non-comedogenic formula which is infused with glycerin. This ingredient helps keep skin actively hydrated throughout the day and helps strengthen skin's barrier to protect against moisture loss.

10. Cleansing Wipes

Packing a beach bag for the road this summer? Make skin care easy for yourself by bringing cleansing towelettes. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes are perfect for combination and oily skin to get rid of the grime and oil after a long summer day. The formula is infused with charcoal and draws out impurities like a magnet.
