Read below to learn all of the best summer skincare tips from Northern Virginia’s best dermatologist at Integrated Dermatology of Reston!

Adapt Your Routine

Many doctors recommend adapting your skincare routine a bit to accredit for the increase in heat and humidity.

During the summer your skincare regimen may need to be a little lighter.

Make simple swaps such as a foaming cleanser in place of one with an oil base.

Combination Moisturizer is Gold

A combination moisturizer that also has an SPF 30 or greater is the perfect addition to your skincare routine.

Don’t Stop Moisturizing

It can be easy to fool yourself into thinking that the extra sweaty layer we get from the warm weather can replace a daily moisturizer.

Moisturizer is very important to protect your skin and should always be applied after cleansing.

Get Your Vitamin C

A vitamin C serum is a great addition to help target fine lines and even out your skin tone all year long!

Don’t Forget to Exfoliate

The summer season is the ideal time to exfoliate away that dead skin.

Talk to your doctor about the best exfoliating products for your individual needs.

Protect Your Skin

The sun can be very damaging to your skin health.

That is why it is important to cover up when you can.

That means always using a suncreen with SPF 30 or greater, and remembering to reapply throughout the day.

Hats, sunglasses, and beach umbrellas can help to keep you cool while also protecting your skin for a day at the beach.


Staying hydrated can help your skin to stay glowy and gorgeous during the summer months. Always remember to bring your water bottle with you.
