To kick off our Summer Skincare series, we started counting down the 10 ways you can protect your skin from the summer heat and harmful sun rays. If you are just tuning in, you can read tips 1 through 5 here. And now without further ado, here are 5 more effective ways to reduce skin damage during the Summer:
6. IMPROVE YOUR DIET
Healthy, beautiful and glowing skin requires you to eat well. A diet rich in antioxidants, melons, egg whites, leafy vegetables and blueberries can work on your skin from the inside out and keep it looking fresh, youthful and healthy.
7. USE LESS MAKEUP
Make your make-up routine as simple as possible so that it doesn’t become a mess in the hot weather and you can freshen it up with just a little touch up. Concealer, mascara, lip gloss and a natural blush is all you really need!
8. BE CAREFUL WITH SHAVING
Your legs probably remained covered throughout the Winter but now it’s time to show them off again. And since you’ll be spending a lot of your time at the beach or at a pool party, the bikini lines will need to be immaculate. Just make sure that you change your razors every week to avoid irritation and razor burn. A lasting alternative like waxing could save you time, effort and unsightly red blemishes!
9. USE A LOTION
Gels and purees are fast absorbing lotions that can help retain your body’s moisture and give you a refreshing summer glow. Lotions that come with light fruity scents are perfect for the Summer!
10. KNOW YOUR SKIN
Whether you’re highly photosensitive or not, excessive sun exposure is the leading cause of premature aging. In addition to damage caused by the Sun during the Summer, your skin could also be vulnerable to a range of unpleasant conditions and even skin cancer. And then we all have our persisting skin problems- acne, pimples or a genetic tendency for moles. Whatever your particular skin issue is, it’s always best to be prepared for it. By understanding your particular skin type, you will be able to buy the right products for yourself and know exactly what you need to do to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful.
