As the temperature rises and the sun shines brighter, we all yearn for that radiant summer skin.
Yet, with the summer heat, it can be challenging to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing.
Worry not! Here’s some simple tips and tricks to help you achieve and maintain glowing skin all summer long.
From moisturizing to hydration and everything in between, you’ll have all the tools you need to make your skin shine brighter than the sun.
Exfoliate often (but not too often)
Did you know that dead cells on the surface of your skin can make it look dull, rough and dry? Yikes, right?!
But don’t worry – exfoliating once or twice a week with a good quality product can work wonders!
It removes those dead cells and encourages cell regeneration, giving you an overall healthier shine. It’s also a great way to keep the results of ageing at bay.
Just remember not to overdo it, as too much exfoliation can leave your skin looking just as dull as before and might cause slight irritation.
Always be protected with SPF
You might have heard this before, but it’s so important to protect your precious skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays – and especially in the summer when we tend to spend more time outside.
Those rays can be so intense! So remember to choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
And don’t forget to reapply every 90 minutes or right after you’ve been in the water.
Opt for natural ingredients in your products
Making the switch to natural skin care products can give you some amazing benefits.
The best part is that you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals, artificial colours and fillers that can cause redness and breakouts.
And, your skin will thank you for using gentler, more natural ingredients in the long run. Give it a go and see the difference for yourself!
Moisturize your skin
Even though you think your skin feels less dry during summer, skipping moisturizing as part of your skincare routine isn’t the answer.
A consistent skincare routine is key to keeping your skin healthy all year round. In fact, if you nab a sunburn, use a cooling lotion with aloe vera to soothe your skin.
Oh, and for those long days at work, or when you’re on the go, try a hydrating face mist to give yourself the boost you need!
Drink Plenty of Water
The scorching heat makes it even more necessary to keep yourself hydrated.
It helps to flush out the bad toxins, leaving your skin supple, moisturized and glowing.
Drink 8-10 glasses of water every day and watch your skin transform.
Eat Fruits and Vegetables
Focus on fresh, seasonal fruit and veg that’s rich in Vitamin C, A, and E – like juicy watermelon, crunchy cucumbers, and super-sweet tomatoes.
The nutrients will work wonders, increasing your skin’s elasticity and enhancing your skin’s natural glow.
