8 Summer Skin Care Tips For Healthy Skin
The summer months can do some heavy damage to your skin. The suns UVA/UVB rays are strongest during the summer months and require a little more attention than normal. Here are some summer skin care tips to help you keep your skin looking it's very best.
1. Cleanse AM & PM
You don’t want to stop this routine. You will sweat a little more during the summer, during the day and at night, so you want to make sure you cleanse your skin and remove excess dirt and oils that build up.
2. Keep your skin hydrated
The use of hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate your skin. SKY Essentials Ultra Light Hydrating Fluid hydrates your skin without oils and won't clog pores Also, apply a nice hydrating mask, such as a honey mask, once a week to perk up tired skin.
3. Drink plenty of water
This goes without saying. You should be drinking 7-8 8oz bottles of water daily for maximum hydration. Keeping your skin hydrated with water is essential.
4. Keep exfoliating
To remove dead skin cells and keep your skin looking radiant and healthy you want to make sure that you exfoliate your skin at least once a week.
5. Don’t forget your sunscreen
The key here is to carry it with you and reapply every 2 hours, especially if you plan on being in the sun all day. A sunscreen with an SPF of 30 works well. I would suggest nothing lower than that. For optimal sun protection, you may want to choose an additional sunscreen for your face.
6. Grab that wide brim hat
The more you protect your face the happier it will be and less work to try and reverse the sun's damage.
7. Your sunglasses will do better if they are on your face
Pull out that pretty pair and help prevent the squinting that can cause wrinkles around the eyes.
8. Add a Vitamin C serum to your daily routine
Vitamin C and Vitamin E provide a heavy dose of antioxidants to help reduce free radical damage to the skin. SKY Essentials Triple Clarifying Complex provides three forms of Vitamin C and three forms of Vitamin E throughout the skin, creating a reservoir of vitamins at all levels to help repair sun damage.
By taking care of your skin, you'll keep it healthy and radiant for years to come.
