Summer Skin Care Tips

The temperatures are rising, and with that comes the opportunity to shed those layers of clothing and show off your gorgeous skin! But, what if your skin has been treated harshly over the winter months? Fear not! We’ve made a list of our top tips to get your skin in tip top shape for summer.

1. Exfoliate. Proper exfoliation will remove dead, dulling skin cells and other debris to prevent clogged pores and increase absorption of moisturizers. The best time to exfoliate is in the morning, because makeup will last longer on freshly exfoliated skin. Just remember to apply your SPF afterward, as freshly exfoliated skin is more prone to sun damage.

2. Hydrate. Apply intensive masques up to two times a week to quickly increase your skin’s hydration. Use boosters, layered underneath a moisturizer, or toners for a refreshing moisturizer prep. Refresh hydration throughout the day with a revitalizing toner spritz at your desk, in the car, at the gym, on the plane!

3. Drink water. Hydrating your skin is great, but hydrating your body is a must! Higher temperatures and more time outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches, dizzy spells, and of course dry skin. Aim to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day to help maintain the critical moisture balance of your body and skin. Take note: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink to avoid dehydration!

4. Limit your sun exposure. It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen; you must apply enough, and reapply frequently.   Studies show that most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should. Apply before you head outdoors, and re-apply every two hours. Try to stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.

5. Get professional help. A spa facial involves deep cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing. They can help to correct any issues you may have with your skin already while also minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
