Everyone strives to have fresh and dewy skin. There is no better compliment than if someone compliments how great your skin looks! With the weather getting warmer, it is a good idea to put a summer skincare routine into place to keep your skin happy and glowing!
1. A Great Cleanser
Find a great cleanser that targets your skin concerns. Whether that is anti-aging, acne, redness, or dryness, there are plenty of great skin cleansers that will help you ensure you are washing away any dirt, bacteria, and makeup that is sitting on your skin. Double cleansing can also be extremely helpful if you wear makeup frequently so you can wash away your makeup and then target your skin even further. 
2. Toner 
A toner will help to remove any remaining dirt or bacteria and condition your skin. You can find a toner that will target your main skin concern as well. Some toners will be more conditioning, whereas others will help to target acne or redness.
3. Moisturizer
It may seem counterintuitive, but moisturizing your skin is important even in the summer. You will probably want to find a lightweight moisturizer for the summer months since you will be sweating more than you would in colder weather. 
4. Sunscreen
Sunscreen is perhaps the most important part of a summer skincare routine. You always want to protect your skin from the sun. There are many great face sunscreens available. Whether you prefer a liquid, something with a tint, a powder, or a compact sunscreen, you can find one that you actually enjoy wearing every day. 
In the summer months, you can keep your skincare routine simple with these four major steps. Since the summer months usually involve pools, lakes, and plenty of time outside, it is important to continue to care for your skin and keep it as clean and protected as possible.
