Summer Skin Care Tips

June 28 2016

It’s summer, and the fun is endless. From the time you jump out of bed until the time you fall back into it, you’re on the go and making the most of the warm weather and long days. While this is all good for your soul, your skin may be less enthusiastic about it. Here are some tips to help you keep up appearances all summer long. Everyone knows that sunscreen is a must, especially in summer. But people often forget that lips are made of skin, too. Protect them from drying out with a rich lip balm that has an SPF of at least 15, and reapply it often when outside. You may even want to consider a multi-purpose product that can also be used on your face to block out that drying sunlight. Your skin also needs more moisture when you’re spending more time outdoors. Keeping yourself properly hydrated is important but you may also want to consider using a cooling mist to spritz on your face and body. Plain water in a spray bottle is fine, especially if you keep it in your cooler, but you’re skin would also benefit from one containing antioxidants to help strengthen its defenses. When you’re done for the day, opt for a cool shower rather than a hot one. Not only will you cool down faster, you’ll help clear any excess sweat and irritants that may block your pores. Sloughing away dry skin is the first step toward looking your best, especially when summer outfits expose more of your skin in general. Try using a dry scrub before your shower, and pay special attention to knees and elbows. After toweling off, use a rich moisturizer to help protect your newly exposed skin cells.
