At Metropolitan Skin Clinic, we use medical-grade skincare. Our Metropolitan Skincare Brand was developed specifically for solving many skincare issues. Our skincare is anti-aging, and it also supports our patients’ use of in-clinic treatments, like laser, BOTOX®, and filler. In the summertime, we sometimes recommend changing our patients’ skincare regime to reflect a more active lifestyle and take account of increased exposure to sun, heat, chlorine, and wind.  

Because summer is supposed to be a fun, exhilarating season, we want you to have a great time, but it is very important to remember the importance of taking care of your skin. Together, let us discover different summer skincare routines that we might recommend for you when you come to Metropolitan Skin Clinic!

What Should a Summertime Skincare Routine Include?

A healthy skincare routine should focus on cleansing, moisturizing, under-eye treatment, and protection. Because of the beating our skin takes in the summer, we also recommend a weekly rejuvenation treatment.   

Cleanser

Cleansing is one of the most important parts of maintaining bright, beautiful skin. A good cleanser should go deep inside your pores and reduce the impurities, minimizing the instances of acne breakouts. At the same time, it should be gentle enough to calm irritation-prone skin and preserve natural oils. The Gentle Foam Cleanser is a good addition to your skincare routine, as it hydrates while keeping everything in balance.

Daytime Moisturizer

For the skin to look healthy, it needs to be properly moisturized. The problem is that the skin loses its ability to hold moisture as you age. The heatwaves also cause you to sweat significantly, losing the little moisture in your skin. 

During summer, it is essential to let your skin breathe to prevent the clogging of your pores. For this reason, you should apply a lightweight moisturizer right after cleansing. A good option is the Pure Moisturizer, which helps to replenish the skin’s natural moisture barrier. 

For an added dose of hydration, our Pure Hydration is a gel-like hyaluronic acid (HA) formula that nourishes the skin without making it feel heavy. This gel can be used underneath moisturizing creams, makeup, and even sunblock, so you know you are protecting your skin while keeping it moisturized and hydrated. 

Nighttime Moisturizer

Doesn’t it feel good to shower after a long day in the sun, climb into clean sheets, and just relax? Your body definitely needs time to recover, and so does your skin. A recurring nighttime treatment is the perfect way for your skin to rest, recover, and rejuvenate itself overnight so that you can have a fun day when you wake up. We also recommend our hydrating Pure Hydration gel to be used under any of our moisturizers—day or night. 

If you feel like you are getting more acne breakouts in the summer due to not eating as well and/or excessive sweating, then Metropolitan’s Clear Evening Acne Gel is a great option to help the skin recover overnight. 

The ultimate hydration tool that can be used day or night is our Intensive Moisturizing Complex, which is both fragrance- and steroid-free. This product is perfect for adding moisture to your skin to help protect and rebuild the surface. 

Under-Eye Treatment 

Many women and men take care of their skin, but sometimes they forget how sensitive the skin under their eyes can be. Sunglasses and sunblock help, but at Metropolitan, we want to make sure that you are getting the ultimate protection as well as the healing benefits of eye treatments. Our Restore Eye product can be used daily to improve the delicate skin around the eyes. If you feel like you might need a little more help, we’ve got a solution for you. We offer a dual-action, under-eye treatment called the Retexturing Eye Duo that not only protects, but it helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This product works overnight, and it is important to follow the schedule given to you by our professional at Metropolitan Skin Clinic. 

Weekly Treatment

At least once a week, the skin should get some skin-specific intensive care. This is especially important when treating a particular concern, such as fine lines, pigmentation, or acne-prone skin. Products like the Vitamin CEF serum can help reduce pigmentation and wrinkles, as it brightens and rejuvenates the skin. 

Sun Protection

UV rays can become very strong in summer, increasing the risk of health concerns and premature aging. To prevent the free radicals from wreaking havoc, it is recommended that you use at least 30 SPF every day. Broad-spectrum solutions can help block both UVA and UVB damage. A good alternative is the St. James Shaded SPF 40, which is lightweight but still offers significant UV protection.
