Summer Skin and Body Care Swaps to Keep You Cool, Confident and Happy

Just like your wardrobe, it's a good idea to switch up your personal care products based on seasonal changes in the weather.

Think about wearing a thick wool sweater during the middle of summer. How stifling and uncomfortable would that be? The same goes for your skin care. Those rich, thick creams and serums that protect your skin during the winter can suffocate your skin when the temperatures rise.

Here's some easy swaps you can do to keep you - and your skin - feeling great all summer long.

Skin Care Swaps for the Summer

Make Your Own Face Oil Serum by Source Vital

Summer-Ready Skin Care

Summer is the time to be out and about. Experiencing life outdoors, quenching your wanderlust and taking it easy. Your summer skin care should be a complement to this lifestyle.

That doesn't mean skipping washing your face each night or slacking on your skin care routine. Make a few small tweaks that focus on doing more with less. You want to get out on the beach or spend time with family and friends, not camp out in front of your mirror!

This is where our Customized Facial Cocktails come in handy. They combine your toning, protective and hydrating steps into one product. Quick, efficient and effective, this beauty oil is perfect to take with you on vacation and simplify your routine at home. And they are made specifically to care for your individual skin needs. 

For the summer, we recommend creating a custom blend enhanced with light oils that are known for absorbing into the skin quickly and won't clog the pores. 

In hot and humid weather, light-weight is key!

How to Create Your Summer Skin Facial Cocktail

Here are some of our picks for a great summer blend. We'll walk you through the steps you'll take to create your customized formula. To view our Customized Facial Cocktail creator form click here.

Step 1: Choose the best base for your face oil, according to your skin type.

The Jasmine and Oil Blend is a really nice option for the summer.

Step 2: Select the infusions that best meet your skin's needs.

Oil Control is a good blend for the summer because it helps to promote a feeling of balance for all skin types, not just those with oily skin. It also won't add any congestion to your pores, even when you start sweating.

Toning Infusion is one of our favorites, especially when it's hot outside, because it gives the skin a soothing, cooling tingle. If you have really sensitive skin, try Soothing Infusion instead.

Step 3: Give your custom face oil a boost with an additional "shot" from our selection of high quality, nourishing botanical oils.  

Hemp Seed Oil is a great option because it is promotes a feel of balance for all skin types, won't clog pores and absorbs into the skin without leaving any sticky residue.

And who doesn't love watermelon during the summer? Round out your unique serum with a shot of Watermelon Seed Oil. It keeps the skin from feeling greasy and diminishes the appearance of large pores. Great for makeup-free days!

Deozein is our most popular product for a reason - because it really works! Made with mineral salts, seaweed extracts and odor-busting essential oils, Deozein keeps you fresh all day without inhibiting your body's natural functions.

We love the spray formula for the summer because, not only does it keep you smelling great all day, you can also use it as a body spray after a sweaty day out in the sun, and spray it on the bottoms of your feet and inside summer sandals to keep away any unwanted smells.
