Natural Summer Skincare Routine Tips for Stress Free Adjustments & Simple Switch Ups / green beauty / seasonal skincareIs adjusting your skincare routine with each season (in this case, summertime in the northern hemisphere that brings with it hot, humid days, as well as increased sun exposure as we spend more time outside) really necessary?

For many of us, especially those with sensitive or acne-prone skin, the answer is a quick “yes”!

Adjusting our skincare routine, and more specifically, the products we’re using, as we move into a new season ensures that we are nourishing our skin in line with the current climate and changing environmental factors.

Below you’ll find seasonal suggestions (as well as one MUST DO) that are can be worked into a supportive, mindful, well-balanced slow skincare approach.


? Sun Protection + Facial Sunscreen Guide

It’s no surprise that sun protection is included as our MUST DO for supporting our skin during the summer (and all year round, to be honest). Preventing inflammation, sensitivity, sunburns, and clogged pores (due to oxidized oils from UV exposure) are things we can all get behind. The tricky part is finding the right sun protection for our skin – especially if our skin is prone to acne breakouts, congested clogged pores, or sensitivity.

To help you out, I’ve put together a ☀ Guide to Facial Sunscreen ☀ (based on the brands that Radiant Rebels in the Facebook group wanted to know about the most). To get your copy of the guide, simply make a purchase in the online shop anytime this summer and it will be delivered to your inbox within minutes.

? Lighten Up

During the summer we don’t want to be holding onto heat within our skin by using rich plant-based oils and butters. Instead, now is the time to lighten up your moisturizer by switching to a formula with deep-absorbing plant-based oils that don’t hold in the heat.

Light, natural summer moisturizer picks are:

Cucumber Refresh Facial Moisturizer is great for combination, extra sensitive, and acne/ congestion-prone skin.

Raw Radiance Facial Moisturizer is best for acne-prone skin that wants more acne-specific targeted ingredients.

Calendula & Oat Facial Moisturizer is great for oily skin that’s also sensitive.

Another way to keep our skin cool (which reduces inflammation, sensitivity, and breakouts) besides sun protection and switching up our moisturizer, is to make sure we’re including lots of cooling, water-rich ingredients in our skincare routine.

Here are my top picks for:

Body care: Aloe-ver Body Hydrator & After Sun Care (can also be used on the face + body for after sun care)

Aloe-ver Body Hydrator / green beauty / after sun care
Nighttime toner: Hydration Mist (the vitamin B3 supports a healthy microbiome on your skin)

Hydration Mist / skin hydrator / congestion / green beauty

Daytime “as needed” sweat + oil absorber: Quick Spritz Oil Fix

Quick Spritz Oil Fix / Oily Skin / Makeup Setting Spray / green beauty

Daytime SPF boosting serum: Vitamin C + Probiotic Serum (apply after cleansing and before your light summer moisturizer)

Vitamin C & Probiotic Facial Serum / antioxidants for skin / skin brightening / hyperpigmentation / green beauty


? Need a routine template?

It’s not easy to making sure you’re using products that all play nice together while also protecting your skin from skin-damaging (and aging) UV exposure, nourishing your lipid barrier (to prevent dehydrated skin), and supporting a healthy microbiome (just like your gut bacteria, the skin has its own collection of bacteria that need to remain in a healthy balance).

That’s why we’ve put together a template for creating a balanced summer routine for both the morning and evening. The template provides an example of how to seasonal support your skin by hitting all the pillars of balanced skincare (while also taking into consideration factors we experience in hot days – and nights – of summer).
