Beach skin-care routines
A sun hat, a good book, and a large towel are essentials for a day of laying out by the ocean. Also having a skincare routine for the summer days is essential. Avoid running your vacation by getting sunburnt. With a good skin-care routine, you can keep healthy, youthful skin.
Whether you’re on a beach vacation or not, your skin absorbs UV rays from the sun every day. One of the most important skin care products to have is a daily moisturiser with an SPF of at least 15. With hydration and SPF protection, this will keep your skin fresh and youthful no matter where you are, making it one of the top-recommended skin care products from dermatologists.
We should always have a good skin-care routine depending on seasons and all climates. However, during the summer months, we have to change our skin-care routines to prevent breakouts and minimize sun damage. During the summer your skincare routine can be a little more lightweight. Consider using a more lightweight/combination SPF moisturizer. A lightweight texture will help keep that outer layer nourished without feeling too heavy on your skin. Thicker moisturizer’s during the summer can lead to clogged pores, inflammation and, acne.
What are the two things that you cannot escape during summers? Sweat and oily skin. While heat produces excess oil from the skin, sweat only makes it worse and even more uncomfortable, resulting in acne. To avoid such skin issues, you should cleanse your skin with foam-wash twice a day, morning and evening. This will help your skin breathe and will keep it moisturized.
Along with oily skin, your summer skin can also suffer from dryness and dullness. This is why it becomes extremely necessary to exfoliate your skin with a face scrub or natural home remedy, like coffee grounds mixed with oil and sea salt. Not only will it remove all dry and dead cells from your pores, but it will also rejuvenate your skin and keep it healthier resulting in keeping wrinkles away! However, make sure you do not over-exfoliate your skin, as it may lead to bruises and rashes. Once or twice a week will do the magic.
Take a close look at your makeup product labels and only keep those that are non-comedogenic (pore-clogging ingredients). Think tinted moisturizers and cream blushes – this helps lessen the chances of your make up turning into a sweaty, cakey disaster! Make-up, no matter what the season always starts with great skincare. In fact, when Allure tapped several makeup artists to find out their best summer makeup tips, they all stressed the importance of proper exfoliation and prepping the skin with sunscreen.
And finally, stay hydrated. Water Water Water!
Drinking enough water helps the body to flush out toxins while giving you healthier skin. Studies have revealed that drinking just two cups of water can increase blood flow to the skin which gives it an even tone. Staying hydrated helps increase elasticity in the skin as it stays moisturised for longer. Heightened elasticity in the skin implies delayed sagging of the skin and no premature appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Make sure you stay hydrated especially in the summer. You should aim to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Your skin with thank you!
