tips for glowing skin in summer


The season to stay bundled up under jackets and concealing pants is coming to an end as summer is once again approaching. Bikinis, board shorts, and other Instagram-worthy clothes come out of hiding and the competition for the most-liked social media post is on. However, as your outfits change, so does the weather your skin has to adapt to.

Since the Philippines is known to be insanely hot during this season, a change in your skin care routine should be done. The harsh rays of the sun, the dry air, and the lack of rainfall will have tremendous, and possibly damaging, effects on your skin depending on what you do about it. And even if you are still young, it is never too early to take care of the body’s largest organ. ShoppersGuide has you covered with ten summer skin care tips you might want to look into and the recommended products for each.


1. Spray on the mist.

Recommended product: Avène Thermale Spring Water
Price range: PhP557–PhP1,103 (depending on size)
Where to buy: Select Watsons stores, SM Megamall Department Store, select Mercury Drug stores


tips for glowing skin in summer

Avène Thermale Spring Water also has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.



You might be chugging down gallons and gallons of water during the summer, but the body needs hydration both inside and out. Mists are great sources of instant hydration and moisture for the skin no matter the time of day. Aside from hydration, mists are also excellent ways to cool down and make your skin look dewy and glowy. And since they can be conveniently carried, you can give your face a light spritz anywhere you go.


2. Exfoliate the dry skin away.

Recommended product: Céleteque Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash
Price range: PhP95–PhP140 (depending on size)
Where to buy: Select Watsons stores, select Rustan’s Supermarket branches, Shopwise Alabang, Landmark Makati, PCX, select Mercury Drug stores


tips for glowing skin in summer

Céleteque Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash is equipped with Vitamin C and E microbeads.



Dry skin is evident during summer because of the hot weather. Exfoliating doesn’t only get rid of unsightly dry skin, but it also helps the blood circulation on your face. Scrubbing the dry and dead skin away will also make it easier for your skin to absorb the other products you put on. However, emember that exfoliating during the summer months should be done less often than during the colder months as skin is more sensitive and vulnerable during this time.


3. Prevent sun damage.

Recommended product: Nivea Protect and Moisture Face Cream
Price range: PhP353
Where to buy: Most supermarkets and drug stores or online


tips for glowing skin in summer

Nivea Protect and Moisture Face Cream is water resistant and non-sticky on skin.



You might be having the time of your life frolicking in gorgeous beaches while trying to achieve your perfect tan, but a few years from now, you’ll get to see the damage it has done to your skin. Some effects include coarseness, brown spots, and wrinkles. A good sunscreen is your best friend in maintaining young-looking skin while protecting yourself from the harsh rays of the sun and even skin cancer. Make sure to apply it at least 15 minutes before you go out in the sun, and re-apply as much as necessary, especially after getting wet.


4. Protect the lips.

Recommended product: Carmex Original Lip Balm in Tube
Price range: PhP150
Where to buy: PCX, First Aid in Greenbelt 3, Robinsons Department Stores, Landmark Makati and Trinoma


tips for glowing skin in summer

The lip balm is also available in jar and stick form.



Just like the rest of your face, the skin on your lips should also be taken care of. Due to the heat, it also has a big possibility of drying out and chapping if not moisturized properly. Note that the lip area is also more prone to skin cancer than any other part of the face. As such, carry lip balms with you everywhere you go and apply it every few hours to help ensure lip protection from the rays of the sun.


5. Apply antioxidants.

Recommended product: V & M Pure Active: Copaiba Oil (South America)
Price range: PhP878
Where to buy: V & M branches


tips for glowing skin in summer

Copaiba oil is known to be the most powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient on the planet.



Fun in the sun isn’t only what summer has in store for you. Due to the radiation that comes with the weather, free radicals or harmful chemicals are created as well. These can result in wrinkles and skin hyperpigmentation (i.e., dark spots). Antioxidants are chemicals that interact with these free radicals which can neutralize them. And while they can be found inside our own bodies, it is never a bad idea to give them a boost by applying some directly to your skin.


6. Go for a lighter moisturizer.

Recommended product: The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
Price range: PhP995
Where to buy: The Body Shop branches


tips for glowing skin in summer

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream is fragrance, color, and alcohol-free.



Skipping moisturizer because of the sweat-inducing weather might be a nice idea, but moisturizer should be religiously applied any given time of the year. However, due to the increased heat of the sun and humidity, moisturizers with a heavy formula might be suffocating for the skin. Therefore, just like you switching from bulky to light clothes for the season, the moisturizer you use should also follow suit and ideally be oil-free.




7. Fight acne.

Recommended product: Human Nature Acne Defense Facial Wash
Price range: PhP170
Where to buy: Human Nature branches

tips for glowing skin in summer

Human Nature Acne Defense Facial Wash is packed with tee tree oil and aloe vera.



It is easy to sweat a lot this season, and this could lead to an increase in bacteria and acne and breakouts. The summer heat will also give your skin an increase in oil formation, clogging your pores in the process. Facial washes are effective ways to not only treat acne but also to soothe your skin from the heat that it is enduring. Make sure that the face wash is made out of light ingredients.


8. Don’t skip on the eye cream.

Recommended product: Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream
Price range: PhP1,699
Where to buy: Most supermarkets and drug stores

tips for glowing skin in summer

Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream hydrates and brightens the skin around the eyes.



The skin around your eyes is often overlooked, but since it is the thinnest and most delicate part, it is more prone to sun damage. Just like the rest of your face, your eyes should also be prioritized with a cream that will not only protect it from the heat of the sun but moisturize it as well. For double protection, it is advisable to put on trusty sunglasses after applying the eye cream.




9. Recover from the sun burn.

Recommended product: Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion
Price range: PhP126
Where to buy: Most supermarkets and drug stores

tips for glowing skin in summer

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion Is quick absorbent and has a non-greasy formula.



One of the most common occurrences during summer is the unappealing sunburn after a day of sunshine. Sometimes, no matter how careful you are or how generous you are with your sunscreen application, the sun’s rays are just too much for your skin to handle. After cooling the skin down with the use of damp towels or taking a cold shower, a cream or lotion is recommended to help soothe the pain.


10. Do not forget about your hands.

Recommended product: Manuka Honey Hand & Nail Cream
Price range: PhP500
Where to buy: Manuka Health branches

tips for glowing skin in summer

Manuka Honey Hand & Nail Cream is fortified with Keratin protein.



Throughout skin-care tips one through nine, your hands have been responsible for applying the necessary products, but they are often not given the proper attention they deserve. Applying hand cream is just as important during summer as the skin around the arms also get dry and flaky. Hand creams do not only hydrate the skin but they also keep it looking young and free from any dark spots.


The upcoming summer season promises endless adventures to embark on but your skin care routine should remain thorough and complete to help maintain flawless and young-looking skin. It can even be summarized into something as simple as this: be kind to your skin for it to be kind to you back.

Copaiba oil is known to be the most powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient on the planet.



Fun in the sun isn’t only what summer has in store for you. Due to the radiation that comes with the weather, free radicals or harmful chemicals are created as well. These can result in wrinkles and skin hyperpigmentation (i.e., dark spots). Antioxidants are chemicals that interact with these free radicals which can neutralize them. And while they can be found inside our own bodies, it is never a bad idea to give them a boost by applying some directly to your skin.


6. Go for a lighter moisturizer.

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream is fragrance, color, and alcohol-free.



Skipping moisturizer because of the sweat-inducing weather might be a nice idea, but moisturizer should be religiously applied any given time of the year. However, due to the increased heat of the sun and humidity, moisturizers with a heavy formula might be suffocating for the skin. Therefore, just like you switching from bulky to light clothes for the season, the moisturizer you use should also follow suit and ideally be oil-free.




7. Fight acne.

Human Nature Acne Defense Facial Wash is packed with tee tree oil and aloe vera.



It is easy to sweat a lot this season, and this could lead to an increase in bacteria and acne and breakouts. The summer heat will also give your skin an increase in oil formation, clogging your pores in the process. Facial washes are effective ways to not only treat acne but also to soothe your skin from the heat that it is enduring. Make sure that the face wash is made out of light ingredients.


8. Don’t skip on the eye cream.

Price range: PhP1,699
Where to buy: Most supermarkets and drug stores

Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream hydrates and brightens the skin around the eyes.



The skin around your eyes is often overlooked, but since it is the thinnest and most delicate part, it is more prone to sun damage. Just like the rest of your face, your eyes should also be prioritized with a cream that will not only protect it from the heat of the sun but moisturize it as well. For double protection, it is advisable to put on trusty sunglasses after applying the eye cream.




9. Recover from the sun burn.

Recommended product: Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion
Price range: PhP126
Where to buy: Most supermarkets and drug stores

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion Is quick absorbent and has a non-greasy formula.



One of the most common occurrences during summer is the unappealing sunburn after a day of sunshine. Sometimes, no matter how careful you are or how generous you are with your sunscreen application, the sun’s rays are just too much for your skin to handle. After cooling the skin down with the use of damp towels or taking a cold shower, a cream or lotion is recommended to help soothe the pain.


10. Do not forget about your hands.

Recommended product: Manuka Honey Hand & Nail Cream
Price range: PhP500
Where to buy: Manuka Health branches

Manuka Honey Hand & Nail Cream is fortified with Keratin protein.



Throughout skin-care tips one through nine, your hands have been responsible for applying the necessary products, but they are often not given the proper attention they deserve. Applying hand cream is just as important during summer as the skin around the arms also get dry and flaky. Hand creams do not only hydrate the skin but they also keep it looking young and free from any dark spots.


The upcoming summer season promises endless adventures to embark on but your skin care routine should remain thorough and complete to help maintain flawless and young-looking skin. It can even be summarized into something as simple as this: be kind to your skin for it to be kind to you back.
