“Don’t overdo it with rich moisturizers. While you want to keep your skin supple during summer, you can afford to lighten up on the heavy creams, thick doesn’t necessarily equal better. It can create a barrier on the surface of your face and keep your skin from actually absorbing the moisture. Formulas that contain synthetic ingredients can trap dead cells and leave your complexion looking dull. Exfoliating can get rid of the dead skin so you benefit from your creams”.
