The arrival of summer is the ideal time to take care of your skin and prepare it for sun, heat, and humidity.

With a few simple skincare steps, you can ensure that your skin is radiant, protected, and ready to enjoy summer to the fullest.

With the change of season, however, the needs of your skin become different, and it is therefore necessary to change your beauty routine taking into account all the factors that can affect such as mugginess, heat, temperature changes, humidity, wind and prolonged exposure to the sun.

There are several accessories that are useful in daily skincare that allow you to achieve professional results.

To combine with cleansers, for example, you can use the perfect facial cleansing brushes to clean hard-to-reach areas of the face to quickly and effectively remove all traces of makeup.

Remember that a proper summer beauty routine can also help protect the skin from sun damage, pollution, and other environmental factors that we are always exposed to.

You don't need to make any major changes to the steps you already perform normally during the rest of the year, but it is important to follow some precautions and choose the right products.

Let's find out together the basic steps for a complete summer skincare routine!

Here are some essential tips to prepare your skin for the summer season:

Cleansing 🧽

During the summer, the skin tends to accumulate more sweat, dirt, and sunscreen or makeup residue.

Use a gentle cleanser to cleanse your skin morning and night, effectively removing impurities without compromising your skin's natural moisture balance.

Cleansing lotions, in fact, maintain the skin's natural balance. For combination skin, cleansing products with a foaming consistency are recommended.

Facial cleansing foams are effective in cleansing the parts of the face that are most prone to oiliness, without stressing too much the areas where the skin is dry.

Try the Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Hydrating Cleanser.

This facial cleanser with a creamy texture helps to counteract the signs of aging.

Formulated with ingredients that strengthen the skin's natural barrier, it gently but effectively removes impurities and makeup, making the skin soft, smooth and giving a more youthful appearance.

In the case of normal skin, it's ideal to choose a product with a lotion texture.

The best products to cleanse oily skin, on the other hand, are purifying cleansing lotions; to cleanse dry and very sensitive skin, you need highly moisturizing products that are free of substances such as alcohol and fragrances.

Skincare is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing, and protected skin, and any self-respecting beauty routine starts with thorough cleansing of the skin.

In summer, however, light products such as foaming cleansers are recommended: if your skin is very sensitive, you can combine a foaming cleanser with an oily cleanser, thus carrying out double cleansing.

Gently remove makeup

Here's another important aspect: makeup removal!

Removing makeup with products that lead to excessive rubbing of the face leads to excessive stress.

If you use eye makeup, be sure to remove it thoroughly and gently at the end of the day and use a gentle cleanser.

Be sure to always choose a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type and avoid products that are too harsh and could cause dryness or irritation.

You can try for example the La Roche-Posay Toleriane gel 400 ml

Makeup removers and cleansers often irritate the skin, which is especially unpleasant for sensitive skin.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane is a very gentle foaming cleansing gel for sensitive skin that does not cause redness but makes the face perfectly clean and soothed. Gentle surfactants support the natural pH and glycerin ensures a good dose of moisture that stays in the skin for a long time.

Only skin that is properly made up free and cleansed at night can rest and regenerate.

Choose the most suitable makeup remover for you, you can choose between:

  • Gel: perfect ally for removing makeup from problematic skin. It not only removes foundation, but also excess skin sebum and refreshes the skin wonderfully
  • Lotion or milk: they will be appreciated by dry and sensitive skin. Not only do they remove makeup from the skin, but they also take care of it
  • Mousse: wraps your face with its foam on the face, eliminating impurities and makeup residues. It is able to provide a high level of hydration, leaving the skin soft and delicately scented.
  • Oil or butter: it is the ideal choice for removing makeup from water-resistant products
  • Micellar water or wipes: they are a quick and effective remedy but only when you are in a hurry, it removes makeup and at the same time cleanses the skin.

Hydration 💧

Hydration is crucial for keeping skin healthy and glowing during the summer, heat, and sun exposure can cause skin dehydration.

Whether it's dry, normal, mature or oily, the right face cream perfectly complements your daily skincare routine.

Therefore, it is important to use a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer, such as the Vichy Minéral 89 72Hr Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane Moisture Boosting Cream 50ml.

Often, our skin is exposed to harmful environmental agents that can weaken the skin barrier.

The Vichy Minéral 89 72H Moisture Boosting Cream moisturizes the skin intensively, makes it more supple and prevents moisture loss.

The composition enriched with hyaluronic acid, minerals, lipids, and the Vichy thermal water acts on 3 skin layers.

It strengthens the weakened skin barrier, soothes irritation, helps reduce annoying feelings of tightness and leaves the skin wonderfully clean. It also contains no fragrances, so it's ideal for sensitive skin.

Cleaning sensitive skin can sometimes be quite a problem. The Elemis Advanced Skincare Sensitive Cleansing Wash has been specially designed to deeply remove impurities without irritating. Thanks to the calming chamomile content, when you wash your face you will feel like you are gently caressing it.

Specific care for the eye contour

Don't forget the eye area: the skin around the eyes is particularly thin and sensitive, which is why we recommend a specific cream for this area of the face, so that it provides the right hydration to the skin and protects it from the appearance of wrinkles.

Always use a sunscreen specifically designed for the eye area, with an adequate SPF sun protection factor.

Make sure that the sunscreen is suitable for the eye area and that it does not contain any irritating ingredients, and remember to apply sunscreen gently and regularly around the eyes.

Tip: For a cooling and decongestant effect, you can store your eye cream in the refrigerator and then apply it directly to the affected area.

In addition, you can also introduce hyaluronic acid-based moisturizing masks or serums into your beauty routine for extra hydration and a plumping effect.

A face mask is the extra step that best completes your facial beauty routine: it gives hydration and pampers the skin with precious substances.

There are face masks that can be left on for a few minutes and others, on the other hand, that remain on all night, the so-called overnight masks or night face masks.

On Nedysia, you can find a wide selection of facial care products, which provide your skin with everything it needs for a perfect skincare routine.

To discover the extra steps to complete your skincare routine, let's start with sunscreen.

Sunscreen ☀️

Sunscreen is a key step in effective skincare, and even more so in summer. Exposure to UV rays can cause skin damage, including sunburn and premature aging.

Protect your skin from premature aging caused by harmful sun rays and urban pollution!

Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor such as ISDIN Age Repair Cream SPF 50 that offers maximum transparent protection during sun exposure and prevents or repairs any damage.

In the case of prolonged exposure to the sun, don't forget to protect yourself even after exposure with a great natural after-sun: lavera After Sun Lotion offers a cooling and calming effect after sun exposure and provides the skin with long-lasting and intense hydration.

The lightweight formulation with 10% organic aloe vera and organic shea butter regenerates sun-stressed skin for a long-lasting tan. The light texture immediately melts into the skin, making it soft and regenerated after sun exposure.


Exfoliation is very important to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and promote the cell renewal of your skin.

However, it is important to choose a gentle and non-aggressive exfoliation to avoid irritation, especially in the summer.

Opt for an exfoliator made from natural ingredients, such as fruit acids, which are gentler on the skin, and also try to limit exfoliation to once or twice a week to avoid irritating the skin.

Cleansers Mulac Cosmetics MAYDAY SCRUB

Mulac Cosmetics MAYDAY SCRUB is a detoxifying scrub. Thanks to the presence of natural apricot kernel microspheres, it removes dead cells and impurities, exfoliates blackheads, purifies the skin and makes it smoother.

Moringa seed oil, with detoxifying action, protects the skin from the harmful action of pollutants.

Scrubs, peelings and face masks are part of the skincare routine, but they are not to be used daily, but to be included as a treatment once or twice a week, immediately after cleansing.

The scrub removes dead skin cells, thus preventing any skin blemishes. Always take into account your skin type and, of course, your preferences.

Following a proper beauty routine, using moisturizing and protective products, adapting your routine to your skin's needs, and paying attention to your body's signals are all important steps to achieving optimal results.

Remember to consult a professional for personalized advice and to take care of your skin from both the inside and the outside.

Don't forget the importance of proper nutrition for healthy skin: make sure to nourish your skin from the inside as well: fill up on vitamins and antioxidants, introduce carotene-rich foods to the menu: carrots, tomatoes, green leafy vegetables, melon and apricots to promote melanin synthesis and prepare the skin for tanning.

By following these skincare tips, you can prepare your skin to face summer with confidence, ensuring a radiant appearance and effective protection from environmental damage.

Consistency is key to getting the best results, so maintain a consistent skincare routine and tailor it to your skin's needs during the summer.
