Summer Skin Care Tips

Skin_CareKeep your skin and your body hydrated—With the rising temperatures, the air becomes more dry, and so will your skin. Applying more moisturizer and lotion will become more important during the summer months, as your skin may crack or dry out. Be sure to drink plenty of water, as your body needs more water during the summer months, and this can affect the look of your skin as well.
Don’t forget about sunscreen—The sun’s rays are more extreme during the summer, and we also tend to spend more time outside. Whether you are planning a trip to the beach or just running errands, it is important to wear sunscreen every day to protect your skin from the damage of the sun. If your skin burns, make sure to apply aloe vera to reduce redness and inflammation.
Protect your lips—Your lips can be burnt by the sun, too! Bring lip balm with you wherever you go, especially one that contains some sort of sun protection.
Take cold showers—Taking a hot shower after spending time in the warmer temperatures can continue to dry out your skin. A cold shower can also prevent acne if your skin is prone to breakouts after sweating.
Invest in hats and sunglasses—These accessories are not only fashionable but also great sun protectors. Keep your eyes and scalp safe by covering up!
