Secrets to creating a perfect summer dry skin treatment routine
Leave your winter moisturizer in the dust
Relying on a heavy moisturizer that was perfect for wintertime dry skin is not possible during the summer. Such heavy moisturizers add a thick layer on your skin and can cause you to sweat more. So using a light gel based moisturizer should be your number priority when creating a summer dry skin care routine.

Using naturally formulated serums and tonics is one way to reduce the amount of chemicals that your skin is exposed to. Serums and tonics have lightweight formulas, are created from natural ingredients that are absorbed into the skin at a faster pace and remain active for a longer duration.
Use moisturizers during the day and night
Dry skin can recur several times during the year. In fact some people notice that the same areas of their skin are dry during the summer and winter. So you should ideally use moisturizers 24x7 and apply a layer in the morning and night. When you use a moisturizer just before going to bed it will keep cold air from drying out your skin as your sleep.

Using a light moisturizer that is ideal for the summer is, therefore, an effective way to keep your skin’s pores free of excess oil, and even prevent rosacea that is triggered by excess heat.
