It is time to put away the rich textured creams and moisturisers and bring out lightweight skincare substitutes.

Summer officially has us in its trenches — the temperatures are about to hit half of hundred degrees and our skin is begging us to change the course of action.

Key goal? Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!

The golden word for the season remains to be hydration (as cliche as it may seem). Everyone knows this, but how much of it are we infusing into our skincare routine? Not enough.

Think glow-boosting moisturisers, serums, toners and masks that will rejuvenate your skin — avoiding the rough and dry patches.

Heat in the UAE is often not humid, further enhancing the dryness of your skin. To tackle this unbearable heat for the next few months, stock up on armour of protective, moisture-infused, lightweight skincare products in your routine.

Go beyond just layering a number of products on your skin every day, prepare a moisture sandwich and lock it for that intense replenishment.

Skincare essentials to include in your routine

Cleansing, toning, moisturising and protecting your skin from the harsh sun is imperative in this weather. While building a routine, make sure you opt for products with multiple benefits and duality in terms of ingredients.

To make the process seamless, we’ve listed a number of summer essentials you need in your skincare kit this season — shop away.

All above products are available on Sephora Middle East and Apotheca Beauty
