The dog days of summer are upon us, bringing hot, humid weather that can cause oily and combination skin to become shiny and greasy. Fortunately, board certified dermatologist Dr. Muneeb Shah of Doctorly has the solution: an easy-to-follow summer skincare routine packed with clinically proven ingredients.
“We chose a simple summer skincare routine to keep your skin hydrated and glowing through the season,” says Dr. Shah. “Don’t forget to top it off with your favorite sunscreen!’”
1. Cleanse: Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser
“Look for a gentle cleanse with a little more foam to it to help remove your skin’s natural oils,” says Dr. Shah. “The Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser is an incredible cleanser with a rich lather that leaves you feeling clean with a hydrating squalane finish.”
Formulated for all skin types, this satisfying foaming cleanser uses a powerful amino acid complex to deep-clean pores while aloe calms and soothes and moringa extract removes environmental debris. Our sugarcane-derived squalane delivers a burst of nourishing hydration, leaving your skin refreshed and soothed.
2. Treat: Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum
Our bestselling serum combines water-binding properties of ectoin with our rapid plumping complex to deliver instant, long-lasting hydration alongside a dramatic improvement in elasticity thanks to copper peptides. Our groundbreaking super ingredient, squalane delivers skin-plumping, elasticity-boosting ingredients 40x deeper for increased and lasting efficacy.
“It doubles as a hyaluronic acid and copper peptide serum to improve fine lines and wrinkles,” says Dr. Shah.
3. Protect: Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
“While people with oily and combination skin types will want a lightweight gel moisturizer year-round, people of all skin types can benefit from a lighter moisturizer in the summer,” says Dr. Shah. “I love the Probiotic Gel Moisturizer. It’s a lightweight gel moisturizer packed with encapsulated probiotics, bisabolol, and squalane that gives you a dewy glow and decreases redness — a Doctorly favorite for many years.”
The secret to our advanced reformulated Probiotic Gel Moisturizer’s groundbreaking efficacy is its first-of-its-kind encapsulated probiotics. These burst on contact with the skin, delivering live probiotics to help fortify the skin’s microbiome, an essential part of your immune system that also helps keep the skin calm and balanced.
“I actually use this before I shoot videos because it gives me a really calm and healthy glow,” says Dr. Shah.
