Beat The Heat: Skin Care Tricks

We shot a segment for SheKnowsTV on how to Beat The Heat with skin care.

You may have to change up your cleansing routine during the heat of the summer months. Humidity promotes excess oil production, and can lead to break outs and clogged pores. If you are somewhere humid, consider changing to a cleansing wash rather than a milk.

Dry heat sucks all the moisture out of your skin, so a wash may strip your complexion too much. A cleansing milk may be better for you.

Excess perspiration, SPF from the days at the beach, muggy humid air – all kinds of environmental issues can clog pores and change the texture of our skin.

Clarisonic gives you a six times deeper cleanse, really cleaning out those pores, stimulating the skin and lifting away the dead surface cells.

Loved by dermatologists, and adored by models and celebrities alike, Clarisonic is quite possibly the most significant innovation in skin care in the past 10 years.

Changes in climate can really stress your skin out, so you need to have some tricks up your sleeve to pull off some quick repair work. Or some preventative maintenance.

One of the best options is to take 10 minutes every couple of weeks and give yourself a mask.

Here are three fabulous options, available to everyone, everywhere via   

If your skin is more on the oily side, or you’re having breakouts, acne, back acne, chest breakouts – you know the drill – you need a mask that will super deep clean and pull out all the excess oil and detox those pores. Gently.

Alaskan Glacial Mud is a sustainable, organic, hand harvested mask. Extremely popular and loved by all who use it, 10% of the profits from the glacial facial go back to the environment.

 Astara Golden Flame Hydration Mask

This one is for those of you living in a dry heat, or who need extra hydration. Dried out skin looks lifeless and dull, so you should use a hydration mask every week or two to repair and add extra moisture back into the skin.

Dehydrated looks drastically older than well nourished skin! 

Astara Violet Flame Enzyme Mask

My favorite way to exfoliate and remove all the dead surface cells is with an enzyme mask.

This one nourishes, detoxes, puts moisture back into the skin and soothes. I love multi-purpose multi-taskers!

And it smells divine too!


When beating the heat you may also need to give your skin a good boost.

Your moisturizer that works fabulously for most of the year, often needs some extra help to get you through the summer months.
