Your skin, the bodies largest organ is sometimes neglected, especially in the summer. With all the tanning, swimming and fun that comes with the season, it’s important to remember that healthy skin is just as important now as it is in the winter. Here are three best ways to keep the skin healthy, youthful and radiant all summer long.
Exfoliate and cleanse
It’s important to exfoliate and cleanse because of the foods that traditionally come with the season. Barbecue, ice cream and slushies, are just some of the foods we eat more frequently in the summer that can be high in fat, sugar and sodium, which will show up on your face without regular exfoliation and cleansing.
Hydrating the skin is especially important because hydrated skin will heal faster, and look more radiant than poorly hydrated skin. This is especially important in the summer because you sweat a lot more, which means the body looses fluid at a faster rate, and sun is more likely tan your skin, which may also cause dryness, peeling and irritation.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep your skin moisturized in the warm season. Many moisturizers will sit on top of the skin, in the summer due to excessive perspiration. Because of this, it’s is best to moisturize at night. This will give the skin a chance to absorb the moisture without perspiration interference. Moisturized skin will stay hydrated longer, and will lead to a more even skin tone and less peeling and irritation when tanning.
These things in mind through out the summer is what will give your skin its very best appearance. With little effort, it can be very easy to take care of skin in warmer seasons. Click here for Skin PhD products that promote healthy skin in the summer.
