Your Ultimate Summer Skincare Routine 2024
by Truly Beauty

Summer is here, which means it’s time to optimize your summer skincare routine. Vacations, endless sunshine, and dips in the pool may sound dreamy, but without the right skincare and proper protection, they can wreak havoc on your skin.

Luckily, a few simple skincare tweaks are all it takes to keep your skin healthy, happy, and glowing this summer. Ahead, our top summer skincare tips and go-to routine for fending off free radicals, sweat-induced breakouts, and dry, dehydrated skin.



Best Summer Skincare Routine 2024

Here’s our ultimate summer skin care guide for helping you achieve glowing, healthy skin throughout the summer months—and beyond!


Step 1: Cleanse, Morning and Night

You sweat more, you’re outdoors more, and with all that SPF, cleansing is a priority. We recommend a gentle, non-stripping cleanser like Truly’s Glass Skin Cleansing Balm for dry skin and sensitive skin types. If you’re prone to breakouts, try a face wash with salicylic acid like Truly’s 24K Gold Black Soap Impurity Cleanser.

Summertime is a season where you’ll be more prone to breakouts. That’s because sweat and excess oil production combined with sunscreen and lotions can clog your pores, leading to blackheads and zits. For that reason, deep cleansing your skin morning and night is imperative.


Step 2: Exfoliate

Another essential skincare product in your summer skin care routine is a gentle exfoliator. Exfoliators remove dead skin cells and impurities, unclogging pores to reveal fresher, brighter, clearer skin while preventing future blemishes.

Look for either a toner or cleanser formulated with a chemical exfoliant like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or lactic acid. If you have oily skin or acne-prone skin, exfoliating daily will help keep your pores clear and breakouts at bay. For those with dry or sensitive skin, stick to exfoliating 2-3 times per week.


Step 3: Apply a Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is an excellent year-round antioxidant that protects skin against free radical damage that leads to premature signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. Dermatologists say applying a vitamin C serum under your daily SPF can actually maximize its protective effects against UVA and UVB rays.

You’ll find vitamin C in Truly’s Vegan Collagen Booster Facial Serum. Alongside retinol and plant collagen, this daily anti-aging serum both treats and prevents fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation while protecting skin from sun damage. Just make sure you wear sunscreen on top!


Step 4: Moisturize

Next up in your summer skincare routine is moisturizer. Hydration is essential in the summer, both internally and externally. Give your skin a long glass of water with a lightweight moisturizer infused with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, aloe vera, vitamin E, coconut oil, and shea butter.

For those with super dry, sensitive skin, try Truly’s Glazed Donut Facial Glow Cream. It’s rich yet lightweight and deeply hydrating with a blend of shea butter, coconut oil, and grapeseed oil. If you have oily or blemish-prone skin, reach for Truly’s Glass Skin Facial Serum. It’s a little lighter on the skin with jojoba oil and niacinamide to keep skin clear.


Step 5: Sunscreen—and Plenty of it

To stop the sun’s glowing UV rays from dulling your youthful glow, always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or SPF 50 before leaving the house. For maximum protection, apply it at least 20 minutes before going outside to give it chance to absorb properly. To maintain protection, remember to re-apply every two hours.

Sunscreen is a summer skincare essential for preventing photo-aging. Think: dry, leathery skin, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and large pores. And of course, skin cancer development. You can avoid all of these by staying vigilant with sun protection. You should be wearing SPF year-round to protect your skin against skin-harming sun exposure and maintain your youthful, radiant glow.





Summer Skincare Tips 2024

Now you’ve aced your summer skincare routine, here are some quick and handy tips to keep your skin glowing this season.


• Soothe Sunburn with Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel is a natural skin soother that’s great for alliterating dryness, irritation, and sunburn. For extra cooling effects, pop it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes before slathering it on.


• Glimmer with a Shimmer

Body oil shimmers give you that just-back-from-the-beach boost. If you’re looking for a little sun-kissed shimmer this summer, douse your skin in a hydrating shimmering oil.


• Keep Your Moisturizer in the Fridge

A super easy summer skincare hack—store your daily moisturizer in the fridge. Besides feeling cooling and extra nourishing on your skin, it can help alleviate any redness while boosting circulation for an instant glow.
