Summer’s here, which means you might have to switch up your skincare routine to help beat the heat and humidity. During these hotter months, it’s tough to keep your skin both soft and safe from the sun’s rays. Trying to keep your skin clean, smooth, and healthy seems almost impossible. But we’ve got some summer beauty tips to help you get through the season.
During the summer, your body loses a lot of moisture. It’s essential to hydrate your body by drinking an ample amount of water (experts say 10-12 glasses a day). You can also increase your fruit intake which will help show a positive effect on your skin. Also be sure to keep up a good skin care routine by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. You can pick up a good brand-name moisturizer at a retailer such as Ulta Beauty or Macy’s.
Face masks made from home kitchen ingredients such as honey and oatmeal can really make a difference on your skin, keeping it smooth and hydrated. You can also purchase fruit-infused face masks at any local drugstore like CVS.
Cleanse your face twice a day and scrub/exfoliate your skin two to three times a week to get rid of any dirt and grime that lies deep within the pores. This is an important step to get your skin to breathe. If you don’t do this, your skin can’t benefit from the moisturizing lotions and face masks you’re using.
Forgetting to put on sunscreen is one of the biggest summer mishaps people tend to make. Remember to make sunscreen part of your summer skincare routine. Use it when you step outside to help shield your skin from harmful UV radiations that bring about the early onset of skin aging (and possible health problems).
Although makeup may seem like part of your everyday routine, try to lessen the usage during the summer. This helps to protect the skin’s natural glow. If you do choose to wear makeup, make sure you take it off before bed, letting the pores breathe. Try using makeup remover.
Fresh produce such as tomatoes are a great way to keep your skin fresh and soothed during the summer because of its antioxidants.
Summer Beauty Tip: Mix tomatoes with lemon juice and apply it all over your face. Leave it on for ten minutes and then wash with cold water. This will also keep your skin hydrated.
Taking skincare-specific supplements will work on the outside of your body just as well as the inside. You can find a good skincare-related supplement at most drugstores and pharmacies, such as Walgreens or Rite Aid.
