Skin Care Routine: Humidity

How Humidity Affects Your Skin

How Humidity Affects Your Skin

When it’s humid outside, your skin produces excess sweat and sebum, which is a waxy, oily secretion designed to protect the skin from losing moisture (source). While this is a good thing, it can also give your face a shiny appearance. Additionally, humid, hot weather causes the pores of the skin to open, making them susceptible to gathering dirt, allergens, and bacteria that can cause breakouts, allergic reactions, eczema, or other skin issues.

Your Humidity Skin Care Routine

Fortunately, there are things you can do to combat these issues, like practicing a good humidity skin care routine. At California Pure Naturals, our skin care experts are committed to helping you achieve your healthiest skin, no matter what season or where you live. Follow the steps below to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh, smooth, and healthy during times of high humidity.



Caring for your skin begins with keeping it clean. You should always start your day by washing your face to remove dirt, oil and impurities that may have accumulated during the night. Our Gentle Cleansing Lotion or our Revitalizing Cleansing Gel both work wonderfully to nourish, brighten and renew your skin.


Next, use a toner to minimize pores, improve skin tone and texture, and combat excess oil. Our Clarifying Toner is fortified with rose geranium and cucumber to soothe and calm the skin while also preparing it for maximum absorption of moisturizers and sunscreens.


Surprisingly, your skin still needs moisture, even in the hot, humid months, but oil-based moisturizers can make your skin feel heavy and look greasy. You’ll want to use an Oil Free Hydrator, featuring our exclusive Blackberry Complex, aloe, green tea and other beneficial extracts, for lightweight hydration that goes on easy and leaves your skin feeling smooth.


A serum will infuse your skin with healthful, essential vitamins and nutrients. Our Renewal Facial Serum is packed with intense hydrating oils, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C and E to nourish and plump up your skin for a bright and youthful appearance.


Hot weather means it is essential to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun, though sun damage can occur any time of year. Our Radiance CC Cream SPF 30 features natural pigments to blur imperfections and natural zinc sunscreen to prevent UV damage.



To keep your skin looking and feeling its best, you’ll want to wash off dirt, oil, makeup and impurities from your face each night before going to bed. Use our Gentle Cleansing Lotion or our Revitalizing Cleansing Gel to effectively remove impurities from your pores and get those skin cells pure. One or two times a week, you’ll want to exfoliate your skin to scrub away dead skin cells and allow newer skin to come to the surface. Our Dual Action Scrub helps boost your skin’s natural radiance with walnut shell, papaya fruit extract, and pomegranate to give you a bright, glowing complexion.


Follow up cleansing with our Clarifying Toner to soothe your skin, improve tone and texture, and minimize pores before moving on to moisturization.


While you sleep at night, your skin undergoes a regeneration process. Finish your humidity skin care routine by moisturizing with a hydrator like our Nourishing Cream, which features an effective blackberry antioxidant complex, cranberry seed oil, and argan oil, to provide your skin with essential nutrients and optimal hydration while you sleep.

Caring For Your Skin In Hot, Humid Weather

Along with following a good humidity skin care routine, there are a few additional things you can do to ensure that your skin is looking its best during hot, humid weather. These include:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • Always wear a sunscreen with at least 15 SPF when going outside
  • Exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover
  • Consider a salicylic acid product to keep pores clear and prevent excess oil buildup
