Skin CareWith spring just around the corner, it is important to add a few tweaks to your regular skin care regime. With the warmer weather, new skin problems emerge like mild acne, irritation, and sun damage. Keep reading to discover great tips on preserving beautiful skin for optimal results this season.

You Need a Bit of Sun

Letting yourself obtain a small amount of exposure from the sun stimulates the vitamin D production in the skin. Although a large amount of time being exposed to UV radiation from the sun is harmful, a bit will do you some good. The way to go about this is to stay indoors when the ultraviolet rays are at full delivery—usually from early noon to the afternoon. If you are planning to go outside, wear plenty of sunscreen waiting about half an hour before heading out. That way, the sunscreen fully absorbs into the skin, providing ample protection.

Drink Plenty of Water throughout the Day

Drinking water is a given for any skin care routine, as well as providing extra benefits. By doing so, your skin is being cleansed of toxins and impurities trapped in the pores. Since sweating is unavoidable in warmer temperatures, losing most of your skin’s moisture is bound to happen as well. Drinking water can restore whatever moisture is lost, keeping you hydrated throughout the rest of the day.

Wash Your Face Regularly

Make sure to wash your face twice a day, every day to rid yourself of any leftover makeup, dirt, and oil. Washing your face keeps your pores unclogged, clean, and dirt-free (not to mention, acne is more difficult to emerge on cleaner skin).

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

No matter what skin type you may have, exfoliating is about one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Refreshing your complexion every time, exfoliating gets rid of the surface’s dead skin cells along with any leftover dirt, giving you the best soft and natural appearance.
