The morning cleansing eliminates the sebum produced during the night, while the evening cleansing removes traces of make-up and impurities accumulated during the day (even staying at home!).

A nourishing cream, but suitable for normal skin, could give you hydration and freshness, but also increase the risk of lucidity in the T-zone.
Never give up on sun protection

No to aggressive exfoliants!
The aggressive exfoliants, like deep chemical peels, they absolutely are bandits during the summer. These products, in fact, increase the risk of photosensitivity is hyperpigmentation. In any case, you still have to remove dead cells and impurities that settle on the face. For this reason, we recommend that you use products containing acids AHA, like theglycolic acid.

Choose light foundations for your make-up
If you can’t give up on makeup and especially on foundation during the summer, pick one from light texture which creates a very thin, almost imperceptible layer on the skin. Products that are too opaque, rich and heavy, are not good at all, and are also very little aesthetic. The mask effect is unpleasant to see already in winter, let alone in the hottest season of the year when you tend to opt for nude and natural make-up!
Remember to choose a foundation that contains SPF, but it’s even better if you opt for a BB or CC cream to color your combination skin without making it suffocate!
