Summer is almost here, and that means ensuring you have the best skin yet with our brands, like Estée Lauder! Here’s what our beauty experts would suggest for summer skin that’ll have you day, night, and beach ready!
Have a Light Daytime Routine with Estée Lauder
In the summer, your skincare routine should be as lightweight on your face as possible. Unlike the winter (hydration-station), you can skip the heavy cleansers, such as cream, for a foam option like the Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean MultiAction Foam Cleanser and Purifying Mask.
The creamy formula rapidly lathers into a rich foaming cleanser that gently removes makeup and other impurities without drying or clogging your pores. Plus, it doubles as a mask and cuts your skin routine an extra step in the summer!
Repeat After Us: SPF
We at LOOKFANTASTIC are always pushing to wear SPF daily, regardless of the season. But the summer is one of the most important times to remember to protect your skin!
“There's no doubt that the bulk of the sun damage happens in the summer months," says Ron Shelton, MD, FAAD, FAACS, a board-certified dermatologist, and assistant professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
Makeup or moisturizers like the Estée Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body SPF15 are a must to apply and reapply during the summer to minimize your risk of skin cancer and dark spots. This is also an essential if you regularly use chemical exfoliants or Vitamin C in your beauty routine, as your skin is more prone to dark spots and sensitivity to sun exposure.

If you need the staying power of your foundation to be an uncompromising guarantee, mixing your matte foundationwith SPF is a great trick to protect your skin while having a flawless appearance.
Exfoliate for Fresh Summer Skin
Dermatologists are often reminding us not to over-exfoliate, but summertime is an exception. AHA, BHA, and other acids have the benefit to open up blocked pores and remove oils that result in acne, especially on stressed summer skin.
Just be mindful to limit how often you use them! Remember, sensitive skin is prone to breakouts, dark spots, and blemishes.
Invest in Your Nighttime Routine
We mentioned minimizing your daytime beauty routine, and if you want to dedicate some serious ‘me time’ after a summer day, you’re in luck for our next advice!
Investing in your nighttime routine is a great strategy, because you can focus on skin repair, hydration, and rest. After cleansing (and don’t forget to double cleanse), you can help your skin heal with a barrier strengthening serum, like the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex Serum.
Repairing against several causes of aging, including UV and blue light photo-damage, you can wake up with fresh, hydrated, renewed skin each morning and have a radiant base to jumpstart your beauty routine. For more of an elevated level of repair, we suggest adding a weeklysheet mask to your beauty routine.
