Summer has officially announced its arrival, bringing along lots of sun and warm weather. This means that people are spending as much time outside as possible – shorts, vests and sandals have finally been brought out from the bottom of the wardrobe.
With a lot of skin on show, it’s essential that you look after your skin as best as possible. Everyone loves a tan, but is it really worth damaging your skin for?
So what steps can you take to stay smart this summer and keep your skin looking and feeling healthy?
- Use High Quality Skin Care Products
It’s likely that your skin might start to feel like it needs some TLC during the summer. It’s important that you invest in some high quality skin care products to use as part of your daily skin routine – so your skin is left feeling healthy and clean. You should take the time to find products that work for you – your skin is delicate and needs to be taken care of.
We suggest taking a look at our Obagi products. They work to clear clogged pores, so that your skin loses that dull and lifeless feeling.
- Make Exfoliating Part of Your Routine
Exfoliating your skin is important any time of the year, but especially in the summer months. If you want soft and smooth skin, then it’s important that you make this part of your daily routine. It helps to wash away dead skin cells that your body constantly sheds and opens up your pores. Run your exfoliator around your body in circular movements – and rinse clean! You should be doing this every week.
- Apply Sun Cream Regularly
A lot of people mistakenly think that they should only apply sun cream when they are sunbathing. Why would they need to apply it for nipping out for half an hour? This is a bad mentality to have.
The sun will burn you whatever you are doing, and whilst you are more likely to burn when sitting directly in the sun, it can still affect you as you are walking around. You should apply sun cream to exposed skin whenever you are leaving the house – and remember to top it up regularly.
- Opt For a Fake Summer Glow
A beautiful bronzed tan doesn’t have to come at the expense of your health. Why spend all your time cooking your skin in the sun, or causing damage using sunbeds, when you can add a little colour from a bottle? There is no need to pick the darkest colour, just apply a gradual tan that builds up over time. Not a fan of fake tan? You can buy moisturisers that give your body a little bit of colour.
- Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Water! It’s important to keep yourself and your skin hydrated when the weather is warm outside. Apart from drinking the daily intake of water that is recommended every day, you can also add lots of water based food into your diet. Yummy fruits such as watermelon and strawberries are full of water – around 92% per volume. Other fruits include grapefruits and pineapple – so eat as much as you want!
Your skin will also stay hydrated by following the steps we covered above; moisturising, exfoliating and wearing sun protection.
