The most important thing someone with sensitive skin needs to consider is that the sun causes a lot of inflammation. Although a sensitive skin type may feel more hydrated in the warmer, more humid weather, heat and sun exposure are still threats.
Summer skin care tips:
- Use a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 but 50 is ideal. And make sure to reapply often - about every hour if you're going to be out in the sun all day or in and out of water.
- Wear a hat!
- Use a hydrating mask at least once a week to make sure you're maintaining the water content of your skin. Dermalogica's Skin Hydrating Masque is an amazing drink of water for your skin
- Go easy on the exfoliation, try using a serum that contains lactic acid which gently exfoliates but also hydrates like Dermalogica's Renewal Booster.
