Summer Skin Care Moisturizing Routine - After a harsh winter of fighting dry skin, summer arrives and most
people forget about moisturizers
body is composed of about 80% water and the deprivation of water can
make your skin look dry. During summer, you usually sweat more, which in
turn can cause your face to look and feel oily. Use a paper towel to
blot some of the sweat away versus rubbing your face and make sure you
are always drinking water. The water intake will help your skin stay
hydrated and it will help reduce the effects of humidity.
sun worshippers, try to tan only in the morning or late afternoon as
opposed to the hottest part of the day around noon when UV rays are
strongest. SPF protection should be reapplied and you should wear a
hat. For non sun worshippers, give
yourself a few minutes of sun therapy and expose your face and arms to
the sunshine once a day either in the early morning or late afternoon.
It will help increase circulation on your face, which encourages cell
growth. Don’t allow your skin to go red or burn, simply feel the warmth
and receive some natural Vitamin D.
Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean you should stop applying
facial moisturizer. Simply apply less, if you had to apply moisturizer
morning and night during the winter, then only apply moisturizer in the
morning and work a smaller amount into your skin.
During summer, most people will opt for sugary poolside drinks, try
drinking herbal iced tea or infused water instead of sodas. Drink dry
white wines or sparkling wines instead of margaritas or other sugary
cocktails and always make sure you are balancing your alcohol
consumption with water. High sugar consumption damages collagen
production and allows your skin to be prone to sun damage effects like
wrinkles. Too much sugar will also make it more difficult to keep
yourself looking trim and fabulous in your swimsuit.
