Summer is definitely time to kick back, relax, and just enjoy the warmer weather, later nights and evening sunsets. But that doesn’t mean it is also time to slack on your skincare routine.
Just like changing your wardrobe each season, warmer weather mean it is also time to change your skin care routine. The sun can be pretty harsh on your skin if you don’t take care of it and overexposure to sun UV rays can cause premature ageing.
