Get Your Base
During the summer months, added oils, SPFs, sweat and more can lead to clogged pores—which is why it's a necessity to add an exfoliator into the mix. From face scrubs to body scrubs, finding an exfoliator that works on your skin is vital. But while the skincare step is a great addition to your summer beauty routine, it's important to not to overdo it, which is easily done by avoiding piping hot showers that can further irritate and dry out your skin.
