During the summer, a few things go up: temperatures, travel and outdoor activity levels — and between over-washing sweaty skin or sun-frying our strands, it can be hard to keep up with the stress we put on our skin and hair, especially on the go.
In fact, POND’S recently uncovered surprising stats regarding one way we’re unintentionally damaging our skin this season:
- Many women wash their face more than 2 times a day with soap and water during the summer, and over one-third (35%) even say washing 3 times per day or more feels necessary.
- YET, two-thirds of women (66%) don’t realize that washing more than 2 times a day with soap and water can strip the skin of essential moisture and cause dehydration.
So what should you do?
Skip the sink and use a towelette that cleanses and hydrates your skin at the same time. POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes remove dirt, oil, and makeup while instantly adding moisture back to skin — without a splash of water or the need for a sink.
Here are some more summer secrets from celebrity makeup artist Kayleen McAdams …
“It’s important to keep skin clean, hydrated, and healthy — especially when traveling. With POND’S Towelettes, you don’t have to worry about liquid restrictions or tiny airplane sinks!”
“I love using POND’S Towelettes at the beach. They are great for wiping hands and faces before reapplying sunscreen. Plus, they can help clean off sandy feet before putting sandals back on.”
Healthy, glowy skin is really important to a great summer look. You don’t want heavy, cakey makeup in the summer, “it just doesn’t stick well and is hard to maintain. I like to prep skin with POND’S Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream. I work it into the skin in a circular motion, increasing blood flow and giving rosiness from within. If you need a little coverage, use a tinted moisturizer like Jouer’s Luminizing Moisture Tint. It gives enough coverage but enhances the glow from the moisturizer. A little curl and waterproof mascara is all you need for your eyes, and to finish the look, I recommend Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment in Berry or Coral. It gives the perfect hint of color but doesn’t require much upkeep in the heat.”
