It turns out that your clothes, makeup shade, and decor aren’t the only things you should switch up when the seasons change; your skin requires some special attention, too. While healthy skin shouldn’t change much with the climate, there are some key summer skin care rules to mind.
The aestheticians in Menlo Park at Entre Nous Aesthetics help our clients make sure their summer skin care is in order with product recommendations, in-office aesthetic treatment recommendations, and general summer skin care tips to ensure a healthy, radiant glow all summer long.

What happens to skin in the summer?
Extra sunshine in the summer naturally causes the skin’s environment to change. This requires us to take extra measures to ensure we are protected. More hours spent in the sun make it absolutely crucial to apply (and re-apply) adequate UV protection to avoid skin cancer, brown spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Thanks to summer heat and humidity, you may also feel more sweaty, oily, and shiny than you did during the drier winter. This may require you to switch up your skincare and makeup products to avoid meltdowns, breakouts, and adding any more unwanted oil—while also providing the beneficial moisturization your skin needs.
Tips from the aestheticians at Entre Nous
Changes to our climate in the summer require most of us to adjust our skincare regimen accordingly.
Here are a few expert tips from our aestheticians in Menlo Park that will help you keep your skin healthy all summer:
Cleanse twice daily
Extra heat and humidity means it’s essential to cleanse away the harmful dirt and oils accumulated on the skin morning and night to keep summer skin looking matte and feeling clean.
Regular exfoliation is key to healthy-looking skin. For your body, find an amazing sugar or salt-based scrub to slough away dead skin cells, excess oil, and harmful dirt and debris. For your face, use chemical exfoliants with AHAs, BHAs, or retinol to keep bright, fresh skin shining at the surface.
Lighten up your regimen
Put away your rich, heavy creams and moisturizers along with your cashmere sweaters and winter blankets. Summer skin care is all about lightweight gels, nourishing serums, and hydrating body oils.
Add a Vitamin C boost
Extra UV radiation exposure in the summer leads to more damaging ‘free radicals’ on the skin. Fight this damage with the antioxidants in Vitamin C! Plus, adding a boost of Vitamin C to your summer skin care regimen helps block the UV rays that aren’t fully blocked by your sunscreen.
