Are you planning to have a fun-filled beach vacation in Pacifica but at the same time worried about your skin? Feel free to stay outdoors and should not worry about how much time you’re spending out in the sun. Protect your skin by sticking to these summer skin care tips.
KEEP SKIN HYDRATED
During the summer days you need to choose your make up products very carefully. Opt for makeup products that contain some sort of hydrating or moisturizing ingredients. You must buy intensive masques for the summer months and use it once or twice a week to enjoy hydrated skin.
You can also use a good quality skin hydrating booster and use it underneath a moisturizer. Even hydrating toners can also be used.
CARRY WATER EVERYWHERE
Higher temperature and spending more time outdoor can make your body dehydrated, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells! The only way to keep the body hydrated from within is to drink more and more water.
Eight to ten glasses of plain, filtered water every day help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. Carry your own water as you never know when you may feel thirsty and your body may need water.
DO NOT FORGET SUNSCREEN
During summer, you simply cannot make the mistake of leaving the house without applying sunscreen. Go for a sunscreen product that goes with your skin type. It is recommended to use a sunscreen with SPF 15 or more in order to protect the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
TREAT SUN DAMAGED SKIN
Even after using sunscreen, sun rays often cause damage to the skin. In case you have sun damaged skin, get it treated immediately with over the counter gels and lotions. Such products can help prevent peeling and reduce redness and inflammation.
You can even try some home remedies for sunburn skin. There are many simple ingredients at home that can help undo any damage that may occur, and to further protect it from the aging effects of UV rays. For instance, you can apply aloe vera gel on the affected area, allow it to dry and then rinse off with cool water.
WEAR SUN-PROTECTIVE CLOTHING
Another great way to give your skin a break from the sun while still getting to enjoy the beautiful summer weather is to pack a few pieces of sun-protective clothing in your beach bag. Wearing a wide-brimmed sunhat (with few holes so as to limit sun penetration) or a pool cover up over your bathing suit can be easy additions to your summer skin care routine. Not to mention the fact that you get to look stylish while staying protected.
