Summer Skincare Guide 2023: Best Products for Skin Protection & Optimizing Your Summer Glow

If your summer goal is to achieve and maintain a healthy, radiant complexion, it’s time to reassess your skincare routine. We’re discussing the best products for protecting your skin against the elements and promoting a glowing complexion that will last through the summer and beyond. 

Transition Into Summer Skin

Our skincare routine needs to change with the seasons. Of course, when it comes to the summer, we can expect sweltering temperatures as well as changes in humidity – both of which can affect our complexion. 

As we transition from spring to summer, it’s important to swap out any heavier products that may feel too stifling on the skin as the temperatures rise. To help you achieve that perfect summer glow, you’ll also want to work in targeted serums that brighten and support hydration levels. Of course, ensuring you are properly protecting your skin against the sun is also a must to prevent burns and long-term damage.  

Best Skin Products For Summer

Now that you know a bit about how to transition your routine in the summer, let’s get into specifics. Here are our top recommendations for the products you’ll want to use to protect your skin and maintain that beautiful summer glow. 

Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the skin against free radicals from environmental aggressors like UV rays, which are especially harmful in the summer. Exposure to free radicals can damage the skin, leading to dullness, discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. 

Beyond its protective properties, what makes vitamin C one of our favorite ingredients to use year-round is its ability to brighten the skin. It helps fade the look of discoloration for a more even glow. The vitamin is also known for its anti-aging abilities, as it stimulates collagen production to promote a youthful complexion. 

Our  Vitamin C Boost Serum is your perfect summertime skincare companion, as it is made with a potent concentration of vitamin C. This star ingredient is joined by other antioxidants that bolster the effects of this vitamin and further help defend the skin against aggressors and minimize damage. The light, fragrance-free formula also feels weightless on the skin, and is made to be suitable for all skin types. 

We recommend using a vitamin C serum at least once daily in the morning. For the best results, you can use it in your nighttime routine, as well. 

Small Batch Serums

Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Keeping your skin adequately hydrated is essential for achieving and maintaining a plump, glowing complexion. In the summer, we recommend reaching for a hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that draws water into the skin and seals it in, keeping it soft, supple, and comfortable. 

OurHyaluronic Pure Boost Serum has a super simple yet highly effective formula that puts hyaluronic acid front and center. It’s designed to deeply hydrate the skin as it improves elasticity, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and smooths the skin for a youthful glow.

Just like the Vitamin C Boost Serum, this serum is made without fragrances, and has a gentle formula that is suitable for all skin types. It also has a lightweight texture that won’t feel heavy on the skin – even when you’re exposed to the summer heat. For optimal results, we recommend using the serum twice daily to maintain hydration levels. 


Moisturizing morning and night is key for keeping the skin soft and comfortable and maintaining a healthy skin barrier. If you’re still using a thicker cream-based formula from the winter, it is time to swap it out for a lightweight moisturizer that is more appropriate for the summer heat. 

Those with skin that is on the oilier side will want to try a gel-based moisturizer that balances moisture levels without contributing to any greasiness. If you have drier skin, reach for a lightweight cream that will counteract dryness without feeling heavy on the skin. 


Last but certainly not least is SPF. In order to properly care for and protect your skin, wearing sunscreen year-round (and reapplying it throughout the day) is essential. However, it becomes even more vital in the summer, when the UV index (a scale that measures the intensity of UV exposure) tends to be at its highest. 

When selecting a sunscreen for the face, you’ll want to find a product that specifically works for your skin type. For example, someone with oily skin may look for a non-comedogenic and oil-free sunscreen, whereas someone with dry skin might seek out a sunscreen with added moisturizing ingredients. 

As far as the SPF level goes, you’ll want a sunscreen that has a minimum of SPF 30. However, SPF 50 and above is better, especially when you’re spending time out in the sun. 

Of course, for many, summer is synonymous with being outdoors and cooling off in the water. When you are swimming or breaking a sweat, it’s crucial that you use a water-resistant sunscreen that won’t get washed away.
