Summer Skin Care: A Guide to Healthy and Protected Skin
Summer is a season of fun, sun and relaxation!
However, it also brings with it some challenges for our skin. The intense heat and prolonged sun exposure during summer months can cause damage to our skin, such as sunburn, premature aging, and even skin cancer. To keep your skin healthy and protected during these hot months, here are some essential summer skin care tips:
1) The first and foremost rule for summer skin care is the use of an effective sunscreen.
Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of at least 30 or above.
Apply it generously and reapply after every two hours or after swimming or heavy sweating. Also, don't forget to protect your lips with a lip balm that has SPF.
2) The second tip is to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water is crucial for keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. It helps to flush out toxins from the bod and keep your skin looking fresh and glowing. So, carry a water bottle with you wherever you go, and drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily.
3) During summer, you should also adjust your skincare routine to suit the hot weather. Use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt and sweat from your skin. Avoid using heavy creams as the can clog pores and cause breakouts. Instead, use a lightweight moisturizer that provides nourishment and hydration without making the skin greasy.
4) Furthermore, it's essential to take care of your skin after sun exposure. The best way to soothe sunburn and reduce inflammation is to apply aloe vera gel to the affected areas. You can also use a moisturizer that contains antioxidants like vitamin C and E to combat the damage caused by sun exposure.
5) Next, it’s better to avoid sun exposure during the peak hours of the day (10 am to 4 pm) when the sun's UV rays are the strongest. If you have to go outside, wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and protective clothing to shield your skin from the sun.
6) Frowning or squinting is common on those sunny summer days. Therefore prevent premature wrinkles and fine lines by repeatedly causing these expressions. Some baby botulinum toxin (b- tox) will help to look fresh, prevent fine lines and wrinkles from setting in and causing permanent lines in the forehead, frown and sides of eyes. B- tox will still allow expressions but without the pesky lines/wrinkles.
