Summer is right around the corner! You may be excited to spend more time in the sunshine, but it’s critical to protect your skin from damaging UV rays.
By minimizing sun exposure and making a few simple changes to your skincare routine this season, you can help prevent skin cancer, breakouts and wrinkles.
1. Lighten Up
When temperatures rise, we pack away our winter sweaters, scarves and heavy coats. In a similar fashion, using lightweight skincare products can be advantageous for those with oily or acne-prone skin.
Using gentle foam cleansers and moisturizers can be beneficial for this skin type, as it helps prevent clogged pores and breakouts. A dual-action moisturizer with SPF eliminates one step from your skincare routine, while also providing sun protection.
2. Apply Serum
Serums are clear liquid or gel-based skin treatments with active ingredients that deliver specific benefits. Applying Vitamin C serum helps to brighten the skin, even out skin tone, and boost collagen, which can lessen the appearance of fine lines.
3. Exfoliate Skin
Too much exfoliation in winter can lead to excess dryness. When summer rolls around, exfoliating a couple times a week will open the pores, remove excess oils and soothe the skin.
4. Stay Hydrated
While it’s important to drink plenty of water year-round, summer conditions increase the likelihood of dehydration and heat-related illness. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day also flushes toxins from the body, which helps the skin stay supple, soft and radiant.
