How to Protect Your Skin in Arizona's Hot Summer Heat

Arizona’s harsh summer heat and sun can take its toll on your skin. Protect your skin and keep it glowing with these five skin care tips from North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic.

1. Use Sunscreen Every Day

The most important thing you can do to protect your skin from the sun is to always apply sunscreen whether you are going outside or not. And if you will be outdoors for more than an hour, re-apply your sunscreen hourly. This will help protect your skin from sun damage and premature signs of aging, like age spots, fine lines, and wrinkling.

2. Rejuvenate Nightly with Serums

Nighttime is the best time to rejuvenate your skin with serums. Ask your aesthetician about using a Vitamin C serum to help keep your skin glowing all summer long.

3. Moisturize Day and Night

Summer heat, sun, dry air, and chlorine from your pool will wreak havoc with your skin if you are not moisturizing it. To keep your skin looking healthy, moisturize from head-to-toe every morning and before you go to bed.

4. Exfoliate Regularly

To keep your skin glowing, don’t forget to exfoliate regularly. Exfoliation will remove impurities and dead skin cells to reveal the fresh skin hiding below. Having a facial or chemical peel can help keep your complexion glowing throughout the summer.

5. Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water is important year round, but even more essential during the summer. Remember to drink water throughout the day to prevent dehydration that can dry out your skin and make it look dull.
