There is nothing quite like a fun day in the sun. Beautiful weather is wonderful to enjoy, but it can also have harsh affects on your skin like sunburn and even dehydration. Here are 6 summer skin care tips to help keep your skin freash, healthy and hydrated and keep your looking great all summer long.
Use Sunscreen with high SPF
We have heard this all before, but it’s still an important to mention. The drying affects the sun can have on our skin can cause severe damage to the cells. You should use a sunscreen with SPF 50 or more to protect yourself and put it on at least 30 minutes before you head out into the sun. Many foundations now contain moisturizer and SPF sunscreen in them to help protect your face.
Drink lots and lots of water
This is very important more than I can emphasize. When we do any excercising, swimming, walking and are in the heat, our bodies dehydrate quickly. Putting water back into your body helps replenish your skin.
Exfoliate your skin
Using a great exfoliant is important. I use Morccanoil Body Buff. It retails for $42 and is worth every penny and smells wonderful. It’s important to exfoliate at least once a week, and even more so if you have been in the sun. Morccanoil Body Buff is restorative argan and essential oils, with dried orange peel. It smells divine! Using a natural exfoliant to help polish away dead skin cells helps renew your skin and bring back a level of smoothness to clarify and tone your skin and pores.
Stay out of the sun
Best time to stay out of the sun is late morning and mid-afternoon between 2pm and 4pm, that’s when the sun is at its hottest and you are more likely to get burned and dehydrate much faster. It’s also the critical time your skin will be at its weakest. If you are like me, you love rays of sunshine, which is fine. I love the glow the sun gives me, however protecting yourself is important so you don’t damage your skin.
Cleanse your face
I cannot stress this enough. As women we use make-up, our faces get oily and this can even cause break outs. It’s important at the end of the day to cleanse our faces, remove the dirt and oil. Never peel or remove blemishes from your face as it can make it worse and cause it to spread and create scars.
Moisturizing is Important
This is the last and most important step in protecting you skin from the summer sun. Use a moisturizer that good for your skins. I love Moroccanoil Body Souffle. Whipped body milk and butter, Moroccanoil Body Souffle drenches your skin to provide deep hydration, leaving your skin feeling soft like velvet. With reparative argan oil, shea butter and aloe vera, three key ingredients that help stimulate the skin’s cellular renewal and work to improve the health and vitality of our skin. It’s suitable for all skin types and retails for $42.
No matter what you do while enjoying the summer sun, remember to just protect yourself. Take care of your skin because its the only skin you have. Drink lots of water, hydrate, moisturize and exfoliate. Don’t allow the sun to take away not only looking great but feeling great about your skin.
