With all the heat and humidity in the summer, you need to change your beauty routine to keep your skin looking its best.
Always use sunscreen.
Whenever you are going to be out in the sun for an significant period of time, always use sunscreen. Don’t bake in the sun at tanning salons or at the pool. The beauty of a tan isn’t worth the price of skin cancer. Instead, lather on the sunscreen and use one of the latest sunless tanning products on the market. Or you can head to your local salon and get a spray on tan! The experts at the salon can make sure your tan looks even and natural.
Ease up on the makeup.
In the summer, you don’t need heavy makeup. Skip foundation and instead use a bronzer or tinted moisturizer instead. Leave sticky lipstick and goopy glosses at home. Opt for a tinted lip balm for just a touch of color, while protecting your lips. Softlips offers fabulous flavors with just a hint of color.
Use an oil-free moisturizer.
Your skin needs hydration, so you can’t skip moisturizer altogether in the summer. However, you should switch from the thick creams you use in the winter and use a lighter, oil-free moisturizer instead. You also need to hydrate your skin from the inside out. In the summer, drink plenty of fluids. Drink 8 tall glasses of water each day … even more when you exercise.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Foods rich in antioxidants and vitamins are great for your skin. Instead of a fast food lunch, choose a fruit salad instead. Berries are especially high in antioxidants, which are essential to keeping your skin glowing.
Exfoliate every two weeks.
Exfoliate your body from head to toe every two weeks to slough away dead skin cells and keep your skin looking refreshed and radiant. Don’t rub too hard when exfoliating, however. Using too much pressure will cause irritation and inflammation.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and look good too!
