Is your moisturizer too moisturizing in the summer?! Climate plays a vital role in the condition of your skin, so the need to switch up your regimen as the seasons change isn’t uncommon. Products best suited for your skin during one season don’t always transition well to the next. Cold winter air dries out the skin, thus creating need for a heavier cream, while the summer climate helps maintain hydration levels, which means you can go lighter on the moisturizer.
A simple solution to that over-moisturized feeling is to replace that heavy cream with a hydrating serum – or two! Some key ingredients to look for include Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, Allantoin, and Panthenol. All have incredible qualities to lock in moisture and increase absorption levels without leaving the skin “greasy”.
Most hydrating serums will also contain additional ingredients to further protect your skin, so you can target multiple skin concerns simultaneously – woot woot! My top 4 Dermaesthetics summertime serums are all listed below.

During the summer, over-moisturizing can cause unnecessary skin stress, so opt for layering on the hydration via serums under your SPF.
