Embrace the sun, but keep the tanning to a minimum. While the warmth feels great on the skin and boosts vitamin D production, it can also lead to early wrinkles and age spots when not enjoyed responsibly. Protect your glow this summer with these tried and true protectors.
Your cells require water to maintain their structural integrity and workload efficiency. If you are dehydrated, your skin will be the first place it shows, with more sag and a sunken appearance. Avoiding this is as easy as drinking water regularly. Not only will your skin look full and clear, but you’ll also feel healthier.
Protect with SPF
Whether you choose makeup, moisturizer, or sunscreen, blocking that pesky UV radiation is the best way to fight premature wrinkles and sun spots while still gaining the advantage of a natural vitamin D boost. Find a lightweight formula that your skin can absorb quickly to prevent mixing with your face’s natural oils and sweat. If you have sensitive skin, consider trying out sunscreen designed for the more sensitive needs of kids and babies.
Matte with a Mask
The heat causes a chain reaction that ends in more sweat and more oil on your face. Avoid a glossy look on your face with regular face masks. These help pull out the dirt and oil accumulated throughout the day to help you lessen the unwanted shine.
After you wake up and before bed, take a gentle soap or face cleanser to those pores. They are on overdrive during the season and need help with the removal of unwanted things. Every cleanser is different, so don’t be afraid to experiment with what works best for your face. You may even find yourself using a different concoction at night than you would in the morning.
