5 Simple Steps To Keep Your Skin Smooth All Summer Long

July 05, 2017

As the weather starts to warm up (or even get downright hot!) women around the country are updating their beauty routines to match the temperatures. Wondering how to get smooth skin with lightweight skin care products that are perfect for warmer weather? SK-II’s Beauty Experts share their 5 simple steps on how to keep your skin smooth all summer long as well as calling out some of their favorite products.

1. Summer heat and humidity can leave your skin feeling oily or dirty, so how do you combat that to keep your skin smooth all summer? Well the first step is to start your smooth skin routine with a lightweight facial cleanser like SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser. This purifying cleanser feels creamy and light but is effective at cleansing skin of dirt and excess oils. You can feel the skin conditioning effect even after cleansing. Massage into wet skin, and focus on the T-zone for most effective cleansing.

2. The next smooth summer skin step is to follow your cleanser with an exfoliating toner to sweep away dead skin cells and impurities. We look for toners that use safe, yet effective ingredients like Alpaha-Hydroxy Acids to help exfoliate and smooth skin. SK-II's Facial Treatment Clear Lotion combines AHA with Pitera™ to clarify and smooth skin while hydrating. It leaves your skin fresh, clear, and ready to receive the benefits of your skin care routine.

3. The ultimate in lightweight hydration for smooth skin, SK-II’s most awarded bestseller, Facial Treatment Essence, deeply hydrates while moderating skin’s renewal cycle for more refined skin texture and firmness. Which brings us to our third step, for smooth skin all summer long apply this ‘miracle water’ generously to rough, dehydrated, or unbalanced skin, and make sure to use both morning and evening for optimal results. Pro-Tip: On especially warm days, place your Facial Treatment Essence in the refrigerator overnight – and feel a refreshing chill in the morning.

4. Our next step is before moisturizing your summer skin, treat yourself to a lightweight skin smoothing serum to really make your skin’s texture bright and radiant. GenOptics Aura Essence and GenOptics Spot Essence both contain lightweight yet effective humectants, and reveal smooth skin. Both of these serums have a lightweight, milky texture that immediately absorbs into the skin, leaving the skin looking smooth and radiant, so they are a great primer for skin before cosmetics.

5. Your final step? Lock in the smooth skin with Cellumination Crème EX. The unique feather-weight gel-crème formula absorbs quickly, yet it leaves skin with a slightly dewy, hydrated finish. If you prefer a matte look, you can apply a finishing powder – but with skin this smooth (and temperatures this warm), you may just be tempted to leave the house without any makeup at all!

There you have it! Follow these simple and easy 5 steps to keep your skin smooth all summer long, whether you go to the beach or a BBQ!
