Tips for Great Summer Skin

Summer is the season of sun-tans, sunsets by the beach, tropical vacations, and picnics in the park. It’s also the season of dryer skin, sun spots, and uncontrollable sweating.  The heat during this time of year can really take a toll on your skin, aging you prematurely than you would have wanted. Although this information might make you want to stay indoors from June-August, don’t worry! Here are our best tips and tricks to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and youthful this time of year.

SPF to the Heavens

Although these seems like an obvious step, a little reminder doesn’t hurt 😉 Remember to apply SPF to all exposed parts of your body, especially your face – because nobody wants premature sun spots and wrinkles. Don’t be fooled by dull weather either – the sun’s rays can be even harsher when clouds are around.

Pucker Up

The skin on your lips can be just as sensitive as the skin underneath your eyes. It’s important to show it the same attention that you would the rest of face. Always keep some chap stick or hydrating gloss nearby!

Mists are Your Best Friends

Don’t spend $20 on one face mist. Instead, spend $20 on delicious foods to make your face mist! Research which fruits, vegetables, and herbs are the best for your skin type, add them to water, and presto! Your custom face mist is ready. Plus, you get some yummy summer snack too!

Leave the Heat Outside

Need an ultimate refresher for those hot and sticky summer days?  Rejuvenate your body with cold showers or baths. It might seem daunting at first, but your skin will thank you later. The cold water will awake your cells and bring life back to your skin that has been dulled by the sun.

Nourish to Flourish

Although the sun helps you achieve that natural tan you’ve been waiting for for months, too much time in the sun can strip your skin of it’s natural hydration. Remember to constantly replenish your face and skin with moisturizers and oils. If you’re in the market for a hydrating face moisturizer, we’ve got just the thing 🙂

Less is More

We’re all for glam summer makeup, but too much makeup during this season can do more harm than good for your skin. If you plan on wearing makeup, keep it simple! Use mineral-based makeup for a lighter finish and always apply moisturizer underneath to lock in the natural hydration in your face. If you want your skin to be even more protected and prepared for the suns’ rays, wear makeup infused with SPF!
