As we are now starting to experience hotter weather, we wanted to share some tips with you of how to look after your skin properly this summer. I am sure many of you are wanting to look flawless this summer, and as we come out of lockdown, so here are 5 tips you can follow to keep your skin looking amazing.
- Sun Cream
It is no secret that the sun damages our skin. Too much time spent in the sun without any protection can cause damage to the skin. Overtime this can cause uneven skin tones, blemishes, and even premature aging of the skin. It is so important that you apply sun cream, especially on those bright, sunny days. Make sure that the factor is high enough for you and that it is re-applied throughout the day.
2. Time in the shade
Following on from tip no. 1, even when using sun cream, it is important to take time away from the sun and sit in the shade. UV rays from the sun can be very damaging to the skin so it is important that every couple of hours you find a shady spot and stay there for 15-30 minutes. If you spend too much time in the sun, it can dry out the skin, cause premature aging and can also increase your chances of getting skin cancer.
The sun can dry out the skin as well as making us very dehydrated. Every day you should be drinking 8 glasses of water. This will help keep you and your skin hydrated, which will help keep your skin looking flawless.
I’m sure you’re wanting your skin to have that summer glow. Well, this tip will help with just that. Exfoliating the skin will help remove dead skin cells leaving you with that gorgeous summer glow. Not exfoliating will leave your skin looking dry and dull. However, make sure you only exfoliate your face 1-2 times a week as doing it more will strip all the natural oils from your face.
During the colder months you may have used a heavy moisturiser to penetrate the skin to keep it protected from the cold. During the summer only a light moisturiser is needed. Using the same heavy moisture that you used in winter can sometimes induce acne, which we don’t want.
