Humidity vs Hydration

Humidity vs Hydration

Summer: We love it, but it can be mercilessly hot and humid — and the thought of slathering on a layer of thick, occlusive moisturizer on a 95-degree day is enough to make us break out into a sweat. But despite the influx of sweaty face days, your skin can still become dry, and it still needs that moisture on the reg!

In other words, you can't just drop your daily moisturizer like a bad habit simply because it's hot outside — after all, it's never too hot for hydration. That said, you can put your heavy, rich winter months moisturizer in storage for a season and swap it out for something a bit more palatable during the summer months.

(Unsure if your skin is dry or dehydrated? Check out our cute lil infographic here!)

Think of the switch-a-roo like trading a creamy, piping hot latte for a massive iced coffee: Both hit the spot (and are totally necessary, we might add) but there's a time and a place for both, (right?). Here we have 2 uber lightweight, super-chill moisturizers that will keep your skin hydrated, glowing, and feeling fresh throughout the stickiest of summer days.

Our Skin Stuff and our Green Cream are the perfect, oh-so-light, summer alternatives you need to try! For sensitive skin types we recommend the first, and for those looking for a summer-friendly retinol alternative, the latter will be your new fav!
