SUMMAR SKINCARE

Sunshine and fresh air make us fall in love with summer every year. It’s a time to explore the outdoors and enjoy fashions like tank tops, flip-flops and sun dresses. How can you get beautiful summer-ready skin while keeping it protected from the sun’s hot rays?

Get healthy, radiant skin that you’ll be proud to show off with these skin care tips and tricks for warm weather months:

Toss your old sunscreen

Long days playing in the sun are a part of what makes summer such a special season. Be sure you protect your skin. Sunscreen loses its effectiveness over time, so it’s best to toss the remnants from last year and get fresh bottles. Look for options that are water-resistant, broad-spectrum and SPF 30 or higher. Apply 30 minutes before heading outside so sunscreen can be properly absorbed and reapply regularly to ensure constant protection.

Cleanse and moisturize

Cleansing daily not only helps to ensure skin looks fresh, but a clean base also allows sunscreen to be absorbed more easily and makeup to be applied more evenly. If your skin feels tight and dry after showering with soap, do not mistake that feeling for clean! That tight, dry feeling means soap has stripped your skin of essential nutrients.

Exfoliate regularly

Don’t skip the exfoliation, especially in the summer. Exfoliation helps to boost skin’s glow. It removes the top layer of dead skin cells and helps your skin to more evenly absorb moisturizers and sunscreens.

Stay hydrated

Hydration is essential inside and out. In the summer when you are more active and temperatures are warm, it is easy to become dehydrated. Ensure you are drinking plenty of water as well as hydrating your skin.

Nourish skin from the inside

Summer’s bounty of flavorful produce isn’t just a tasty way to reinvent meal time, it’s also an opportunity to choose foods full of nutrients that are good for your skin. Colorful fruits are bursting with antioxidants that may help to protect your skin cells from external damage from the sun, smoke or even stress. Try berries like blueberries and raspberries, as well as dark-skinned grapes.

  1. You are right, the freshness of the summers do make us want to shed our bulky clothes, closed footwear etc. But this is precisely the reason why we should take more care of our skin. I never step out in the sun without a sunscreen on whether it’s face or on body. And I use parachute summer fresh body lotion after my bath in the morning. It not only deeply moisturizes my skin but its double sunscreen also protects the skin from harsh UV rays. Good product for summer skin care!
