It’s summertime! Time to enjoy beautiful sunny days and endless trips to the beach. But, how can your skin be glowing and feel amazing when harsh UV rays, salty water, air conditioning, and chemicals can be your skin’s worst nightmare?
The healthy summer glow we all love and seek is only possible if you protect and care for your skin. Otherwise, you will end up with clogged pores, acne breakouts, and sun damage.
You can consider these tips holy-grails for you to get glowing, healthy-looking skin all summer long.
1. NEVER FORGET YOUR SPF
A good SPF is essential to protect your skin barrier from harmful UV rays. Even if it is cloudy, apply SPF. We have seen the worst sunburns during cloudy days because people wouldn’t be as careful applying sunscreen. And sunburns are not only painful, but they can also cause premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and skin cancer. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen every two hours. And don’t forget your ears and feet.
2. CHOOSE A LIGHTER MOISTURIZER & MAKEUP
During summer days, your skin will sweat more, and winter/spring moisturizers may feel too heavy on your skin, especially if you have oily skin. Choose a lighter moisturizing gel or cream that will keep your skin hydrated and comfortable. And if you love makeup, change your foundation for a light cc cream. Your skin will look fresh and natural.
3. CLEANSE & EXFOLIATE
Sweat, debris, and dead skin cells build up can easily clog your pores, causing the skin to look dull. Deeply cleansing and exfoliating the skin will help to give your complexion a beautiful glow. Using a deep clean exfoliator will make sure pores are clean, preventing acne breakouts and other skin concerns.
4. WEAR SUNGLASSES
Sunglasses may be just an accessory for many. However, they will help to protect your eyes from the sun and help to prevent wrinkles.
5. AVOID SUN EXPOSURE
Easier said than done, we know. Summer is all about being out there enjoying the outdoors. The best way to protect your skin is to avoid sun exposure between 11am to 3pm.
6. SHEET MASKS OBSESSION
After a day at the beach, you may feel your skin is dehydrated. Apply a sheet mask once or twice a week to soothe and give your skin an instant boost of hydration.
Protect and care for your skin every day to make sure your complexion will be healthy and glowing all summer long.
