How to Keep Your Skin Hydrated During Extreme Temperatures

Jul 26, 2021 | Skin Care



We’re no strangers to extreme temperatures during the summer. Yes, it is a “dry heat,” but what’s really getting dry is your skin! North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic offers a few tips to keep your skin hydrated during the hottest time of the year.

Drink Lots and Lots of Water

It is easy to get dehydrated in the heat before you even realize it. You will lose much of the water in your body through your skin. A good rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in ounces each day. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds, you should drink 70 ounces of water a day and more if you are outside or after working out.

Eat Water-Rich Foods

Fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, melons, tomatoes, and leafy greens are some of the best water-rich foods you should be adding to your diet. They are loaded with antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals.

Use a Hydrating Sunscreen and Skin Care Products

Summer means it is time to up your sunscreen game. If you have dry skin, use a sunscreen with moisturizing ingredients and an SPF of 30 or higher. Talk to your aesthetician about adding topical skin care products with hyaluronic acid (HA) to your daily skin care routine. HA helps your skin retain moisture better while it hydrates your skin and diminishes the appearance of fine lines.

Get a Hydrating Facial

A hydrating facial is a great way to give your skin the extra moisture hydration it needs during the hot summer months and even during the cold dry winter. After your facial, your skin will be smooth and silky again.
