After today, we’ll have a few days of hot, sunny weather – and when you head outside during the summer, it’s so important to keep your skin healthy.
Here are some skin tips for the season:
First and foremost – use sunscreen! Sunburns are never fun, and years of too much sun leads to premature wrinkling and skin aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer.
And don’t forget your lips – as you would with sunscreen, there are lip-specific products as well with SPF protection.
If you wear makeup, try to find oil-free products that are breathable on the skin during the high humidity.
Summer’s a good time to exfoliate to help improve hydration from moisturizers. And hydration also comes by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to help prevent headaches or dizzy spells.
There are still going to be times when we’re wearing masks, so make sure you switch them out periodically and keep them clean to help prevent skin irritation and “maskne.”
Keep your skin protected for a safe summer!
