Summer’s the best time to enjoy outdoor activities. But, beware, while we may be enjoying all sorts of fantastic adventures, our skin gets the most burn-out. Check here for easy skin care tips.
Sun Protection. Too much sun exposure can give us age spots and wrinkles, and, worse, skin cancer. Thus, before going out, make sure to use broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF15. Remember that reapplication of sunscreen every two hours is a must to keep protected at all times. It is also important to stay away from the sun during its brightest hours, from 10 to 4pm.
Skin need TLC. With the countless activities available this summer, we subject our skin to more trauma. In hot summer months try to limit baths or use warm water. As hot water and yes, chemicals used in oils can remove natural oils from our skin, making it drier. Shaving, too can cause dryness. Hence, it is advised to apply after shave balm after every shaving session. This will help protect skin from redness and skin dryness.
Well-balanced diet. As summer also means an abundance of fruits, take advantage of the plenty of fruits and vegetables available in the market. It is suggested in frequent studies that Vitamin C and other phytonutrients found in these food varieties can promote healthy and radiant looking skin.
Avoid smoking and stress. Both of these can effect bad skin. Smoking can dry out skin and caused too many wrinkles. While stress can cause acne and zits which can leave scars permanently. Remember, a healthy and sound mind emanates from within and can manifest even in our entire body.
