Of course, first of all, it is worth setting aside products containing acids. Lotions, peels, masks and creams with acids actively "dissolve" the upper layers of the skin, giving it a fresh look, as well as accelerating the regeneration processes. Thus, the skin is in a permanent regenerating state, which makes it more susceptible to UV light. Removing the stratum corneum, products with acids increase the risk of pigmentation. It is for this reason that aggressive peels are not carried out in the summer.
If it is not possible to completely abandon acids, then leave these funds exclusively for evening care. Do not forget to apply SPF (sun protection) products before going outdoors, as after night work of acids, the skin also remains prone to pigmentation.
The wax captures not only unnecessary hairs, but also the stratum corneum. That is why the skin after waxing, as well as after acids, is "bare" and is subject to the negative influence of the sun (pigmentation). In the summer, it is important to completely abandon this procedure or carry it out a few days before the scheduled time under the active sun, which can only be under the sunscreen.

In summer, the skin is exposed to high temperatures, which slightly alters the sebaceous glands. Their activity increases, which means that the excretory function of the pores also becomes even more significant. That is why it is not worth overloading the skin in the summer with foundation or powder, as this can cause open or closed inflammation and the appearance of blackheads. Try replacing these products with bb or cc creams, cushons, and non-comedogenic mineral powders. For example, cosmetologist Victoria Filimonova recommends using Jane Iradele powder.
Such a stage of care as hydration should not be ignored in summer. However, it is better to choose the texture of moisturizers in gel or in the form of a serum. In summer, the skin does not need to be hidden under a thick cream, because due to the activity of the sebaceous glands, this can cause comedones and acne.
