The arrival of sunshine, long days, and a warm breeze can sometimes turn elaborate skincare routines into an afterthought. Layering multiple products can feel wholly unnecessary in the oppressive heat and humidity and it’s easy to forget that skin needs don’t necessarily change overnight — even if the weather does. Hydration and moisture should still be top priority when approaching the summer months, but making the transition isn’t always the most intuitive.
Obvious steps might include shelving your go-to moisturizer from the dead of winter or ditching a luxe balm that’s your occlusive holy grail, but a replacement plan with seasonally appropriate skincare is still needed. Incorporating innovative, expert formulated, and lightweight options is the answer and provides a happy medium that will tend to your skin’s moisture needs without feeling like a blanket in the heat.
These serums give the freedom of choosing to use as little or as much product as you like while not having to worry about your makeup sliding off. Here are six top contenders to make the weather less taxing on your skin and that will leave you feeling super comfortable and moisturized.
