A Water-Based Skin Care Routine for Summer A Water-Based Skin Care Routine for Summer A Water-Based Skin Care Routine for Summer

Ah, the scorching days of summer. What could be more refreshing than drinking a cold glass of water when it’s super-hot outside? Go ahead and give your skin a treat by adding a few water-based products to your skin care routine this summer. Here, find the right micellar water and water-based moisturizer for your skin type for a simple, two-step cleansing and moisturizing routine.

Step 1: Micellar Water

In the humidity, you may notice your skin looks extra-shiny after a day spent in sticky weather. And cleansing twice a day is important to help rid the surface of your skin of dirt, excess oils, and makeup residue. Take care of all that with a micellar water. This French-favorite cleanser requires no rinsing, making it an ideal travel companion. Micellar water is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift, dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from your skin.

Now it’s time to find your micellar water match! Pick from one of the following three: The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser – Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser – Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. To use, saturate a cotton pad with your micellar water of choice, then wipe the pad across your face. The micellar waters are free of oil, soap, and alcohol and can be used on your face, eyes, and lips.

Step 2: Water-Based Moisturizer

Once you’re done cleansing, moisturizing should be the next step in your skin care routine. This summer, reach for a lightweight water-based moisturizer. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care line is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Pick from one of the three options below to suit your skin type.

L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin: Normal and dry skin faces external factors such as pollution and UV rays that can damage the skin’s moisture barrier, increasing loss of moisture and causing it to become drier. As a result, skin surfaces loses it glow, becoming dull-looking. This water-based moisturizer envelops skin with moisture, improving the look of skin’s radiance.

L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin: In normal and oily skin, external factors such as pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production. As a result, your complexion can start to look overly shiny. This water-based moisturizer helps reduce the appearance of excess shine and has a matte finish.

L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin: Your skin has a very fragile moisture barrier that can be easily damaged by external factors such as pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming easily dehydrated, feeling tight and uncomfortable. This water-based moisturizer envelops skin with moisture, providing comfort.

How to Make the Most of Your Water-Based Skin Care Routine

Now that you’ve chosen the micellar water and water-based moisturizer pair for your skin, put them to good use. For starters, cleanse with micellar water morning and night. Sleeping in your makeup? That’s a skin care no-no! If you do that, your makeup can mix with the dirt and oil on your skin, leading to clogged pores, which can lead to breakouts. Keep a bottle of micellar water on your nightstand for easy access on those nights that you’re exhausted. Pack it in your gym bag so that you can cleanse on the go.

Then, apply your water-based moisturizer twice a day after cleansing. Planning a trip this summer? Consider the locale. If you’re heading somewhere tropical, the option for normal/oily skin might be the best option since it has a matte finish. But if you’re traveling somewhere with dry air, you may want to think about using the one for normal/dry skin.
