For most of us, summer is the best time of the year. The time when you can relax on the beach or in the park. When you think about it, even when it rains during summer, you still feel fresh and beautiful. However, summer can take its toll on your hair, body, and skin if you don’t take care of it appropriately.
Here are a few tips about how to protect your skin during summer.
As you probably heard a million times before, ultraviolet rays can be very damaging. It’s vital to protect your skin from UV rays since it’s not only about your skin, but your health as well. UVA rays can burn your skin, cause premature aging and even lead to dangerous skin cancer. So, what can you do about it?
There are many answers, and you can try with self-tanner first. Instead of burning your skin in the sun for hours, trying to get a perfect tan, visit your nearest salon that offers spray-on tan services. Or, you can buy self-tanning lotion and do it yourself. However, be careful when you’re using a self-tanner on yourself since you don’t want to have an uneven tan.
Everyone is Free to use Sunscreen
Dermatologists around the world recommend using a sunscreen with SPF of at least 30. It’s crucial to apply sunscreen on a regular basis as it wears off with prolonged sweating or swimming. Even if it’s not hot outside and it’s actually cloudy, UVA can still damage your skin, so wear sunscreen on cloudy days as well as during the summer time. Also, protect your lips and use a lip sunscreen with a high SPF agent.
No matter the season, moisturizing is an important part of taking care of your skin. Feet, ankles, and elbows can get super dry. Use avocado oil to keep your skin smooth and healthy. We recommend avocado oil since it has nourishing properties and contains vitamin E.
Overall, moisturizing will help you age gracefully and look beautiful and healthy at the same time.
Protect your Face
Your face is exposed to the sun all the time, all year long. Plus heavy makeup and chemicals can be extra damaging to your skin. Having a clean face is like having beautiful teeth or healthy hair! You can wear the most expensive clothes or have a perfect body, but your skin can ruin your look and confidence in a minute.
This summer, don’t forget to wear a hat and use a sunscreen for your face with SPF of 50 at leas. Also, don’t forget to apply some extra sunscreen on your neck.
If you want to take it a step further, try mineral makeup since it has a light powder base and even a built-in SPF. The good thing about mineral makeup is that it’s affordable and good quality.
Eat Right and Drink Plenty of Water
You are what you eat! The way you feel or look depends greatly on what you eat and how much water you drink. In this particular case, your skin needs all the minerals and vitamins to stay healthy. You can never go wrong with veggies and fruits, and food rich in antioxidants such as fish and eggs, which keeps your skin elastic and prevents wrinkles.
Also, stay hydrated and drink enough water, especially during the summer when we tend to sweat more and lose water due to hot weather.
