Simple Solutions for Tackling Summer Skin
Now that we are entering the warmest month of the summer season, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your skin is protected. And, just like every year, summer threatens to wreak havoc on our skin, yet, sometimes, we may forget certain habits that can actually protect it, so here are some simple, yet effective summer care tips that have stood the test of time and continue to work to this day.
Hydration is important to keep your bodily functions working properly, ridding your body of toxins, and excelerates circulation, which helps to create a youthful glow. Hydration comes in many forms and ensures that you don’t become hydrated, which can lead to inflammation, rashes, and irritation. It doesn’t have to be complicated, so simply drinking more water this time of year or slather on some lotion to keep your complexion supple and fresh.
It’s heating up outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through sunburns to go outside. Use an SPF to protect against burning and premature aging and if you’ve unfortunately succumbed to the sun’s rays, there’s nothing that a little Calming Sensitive Cream can’t fix with soothing plant extracts to cool your skin and soothe any irritations.
Skin exfoliation is an important step in increasing circulation within the body and sloughing away dead, dull skin to reveal a renewed, and revitalized complexion. Exfoliation can be from head to toe to cultivate silky, smooth, skin that is soft to the touch. So, if you’ve noticed that your makeup is looking less than stellar or your skin is a bit lackluster, look no further than a good exfoliation session to solve your skincare woes.
Go Easy on the Makeup
We all want to look good, but having a melted face isn’t the road to take. While you’ll want to focus on the fun, take heed to your makeup regimen because all that sweat and debris will not only potentially clog your pores, it can get messy. Simply go for a light tinted moisturizer with beneficial ingredients than succumbing to looking overly done.
A beautiful glow is nice, but not to the detriment of your health. Try a suntan lotion rather than laying out in the sun this season if you want to opt for more color. It’s simple, it’s easy, just as long as you handle it with gloves, as to not look conspicuous. Suntan lotion is the safe, yet effective way to wear a bit of color without risking skin problems in the future.
Keep it Light
There are so many products to try, yet you only need a few to keep you going this summer. Ditch the heavyweight creams left over from last winter and try something lighter so your skin can breathe. During warmer months, our skin produces more oil, so heavier creams and lotions aren’t necessary as heavier ones can cause blemishes, especially if you have oily skin.
Say No to Shine
You’ll want to shine brightly this summer, but not with shiny skin. The solution are ingredients that help wick away oil without overdrying. Try our Purifying Tonic Lotion, for dimming some of that shine so you can focus on more important things like having fun. Follow up with a light moisturizer and you’re good to go!
Mind Your Scalp
Sometimes we pay so much attention to our faces and bodies, we forget the one part that directly getting rays- our scalps, which can catch sunburn if we aren’t careful, so wear a hat to protect your hair as well, which can also dry out with overexposure. Wearing a hat also protects other vulnerable areas of your body, such as your nose, ears, face and neck. The wider the better, so you can be fashionable and safe.
