This summer, take a trip to get luminous skin.
When you think of summer, what comes to mind? Some of us think of summer as a time for pool parties, vacations, beaches, and picnics, but for others, it can be a time of harsh sunshine and exhaustion. Summer is a great time for a skincare makeover, we all know that our winter skincare routines need to change because the weather will be long hours of daylight and hot, dry, or humid weather can affect our skin differently. Going to the beach is always a great summer activity, but it can wreak havoc on your skin. While it's great that you look good on the outside, healthy skin is what's most important.
Have you seen the commercial where it shows the sun sucking your energy? That is true, the harsh sun can do a lot of damage as the skin's hydration evaporates, but don't worry, The secret to luminous skin is in your hands this summer, and enjoy the weather to the fullest. Read to know more.
Use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher
Those of us who garden, hike or live in a hot climate know how important sun protection is. We need to protect our skin from harmful ultraviolet rays — otherwise called "UV rays" — if we want to avoid getting wrinkles and skin cancer. Choose a sunscreen you like the feel of, so you'll be more likely to use it every day. Help prevent premature skin aging caused by the sun, including wrinkles, sagging, and age spots. Select a sunscreen containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.
Cleanse your skin with gentle products that don't strip it of natural oils.
As we sweat more in the summer, oil secretion is at its peak, and that oil on the skin serves as a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in bumps, blackheads, and acne. Do you want to take care of your skin? I do. Wouldn't it be great if skincare products were actually good for skin? They can be! There are a ton of chemical-filled products that are cheap, but their pernicious ingredients can damage your skin. Use gentle soaps that are enriched with essential oils and natural conditioners like Avocado butter soap, Green tea soap, etc. Natural soaps contain elements that can't be synthesized. These are the essential oils, trace minerals, and herbs.
The key to survival is hydration.
With the hot summer heat and the sun beating down on your body, hydration is extremely important to maintain healthy skin and overall health. While it's easy to reach for a beverage or food when you're thirsty, water is the most efficient way to replenish your body with what it needs. The secret to healthy, hydrated skin is to drink enough water. Study after study shows that before any other skincare or makeup product, you should be hydrating your skin with water. Keeping water in plastic bottles should be replaced with a copper bottle, which is a better alternative and more environmentally friendly, and copper has numerous health benefits.
Exfoliate once or twice a week
Exfoliating is important for getting rid of dead skin cells and unclogging pores. Exfoliating your skin not only makes it softer but also helps prevent blackheads and acne. Just use a scrub or exfoliant to gently rub away any dirt and oil stuck in your pores. If you have sensitive skin, then you can easily exfoliate without any harsh ingredients by using simple ingredients like coffee grounds. If you're an all-natural kind of person, then there are plenty of products out there using natural ingredients for this skin treatment too. Summer is here, as the weather warms up, the moisture on the skin provides a breeding ground for bacteria that cause pimples, so it's important that you slough off that dead superficial skin layer once or twice a week.
Living a moisturize daily life can be hard in the summer. It's hot, you're sweating more and you're more likely to spend more time outdoors. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, it's important to use the right products this summer so your skin stays healthy. That means using a non-comedogenic product that won't clog pores, sing the praises of products that not only moisturize your skin but also protect it. Moisturizing daily is the key to healthy skin. Healthy skin will help reduce the signs of aging. In addition, anti-aging moisturizers will improve the overall texture of your skin which will help you look younger and more vibrant. Body butter that is natural is a great way to moisturize the body in summer.
Don't forget about your lips.
Your lips can say a lot about how we feel. They show our smiling and laughter, in their natural color, are just proof of our own beauty and give an excellent representation of what lies inside us. I love lip balms because they are very useful during summer. When the weather outside is hot and dry, your lips feel dried out in seconds. Nobody likes dry lips, so to get rid of them, use lip scrubs made of natural ingredients, followed by natural lip balms.
If you're looking for a sun-kissed tan, a clear and radiant complexion, or simply to maintain your current skincare regimen this summer, we hope these tips prove to be helpful. Because let's face it: rich skin is sexy, (and frankly more bearable in warm weather). By following this guide you can get the results you've been dreaming of all year.
