Isn’t summer an exciting season where you can enjoy the sun, ocean breeze, watermelons, and fruit shake any time you want! However, during this season, we also face different sets of challenges such as heat and humidity. So how can you enjoy the summer sun while being confident that your skin is well protected?
Skin Care Tip #1: HYDRATE
We are all aware that hydration is vital to our overall health- especially during summer. Staying hydrated is highly required to maintain our skin health as it makes up the base of our body fluids, which includes our blood, saliva and sweat. In choosing beverages, opt for healthy drinks that can cool you down, and if possible, filled with antioxidants, and vitamins.
Skin Care Tip #2: SUNSCREEN
UV rays are usually the strongest during summer season. These strong UV rays might not only cause sun burn and skin pigmentation, but also result to skin aging and risk of skin cancer. Therefore, always remember to put on sunscreen when you’re exposing yourself to the sun.
Sunscreen works by absorbing and/or reflecting UV rays. The indicator of sunscreen’s protective strength is the ‘’Sun Protection Factor’’, which is commonly known as ‘’SPF’’. Most dermatologist recommends a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to be applied on all exposed skin including hands, ears, and lips for a good protection.
The amount of sunscreen applied will also affect the effectives, thus, do remember to re-apply it frequently, especially when you’re sweating a lot or when you have contact with water.
Skin Care Tip #3: CLEANSE
We tend to wear lighter clothes during summer and we should do the same with our skin – we must go with the lighter options especially with cleansing. Instead of using oil-based cleansers, choose water-based options that can clean your pores and balance your skin’s pH.
Skin Care Tip #4: MOISTURIZE
Yes, you read it right. Despite the hot and humid weather, you still need to do your moisturizing routine after cleansing your skin. This protects your skin’s outer layer from irritation and skin dryness. That is why it is crucial to find a light-weight moisturizer that absorbs quickly so you won’t feel heavy and sticky on your skin.
Don’t let the summer heat rob you of the once-a-year opportunity to flaunt your summer skin! Nourish and protect your skin to stay optimally healthy and beautiful.
