The summer months are upon us and as we settle into the season, we should also update our skincare routines. Summer means intense heat and with it, a unique set of skincare challenges. So break out the sun protection and get ready for fun in the sun with these summer skincare tips:
1) Spot Treat:
Sunspots and dark spots can get worse in the summer because of excessive sun exposure. Targeted dark spot treatments or night creams can soften this appearance, making skin look more even and youthful.
2) Avoid Too Much Sun:
We all love the sun, but keep it to a healthy minimum. Avoid prolonged exposure that can result in a burn and long-term sun damage. Protect your skin and plan ahead if you know you’re going to be outside for a long period of time.
3) Exfoliate and Moisturize:
A proper exfoliation and moisturizing routine can be key to getting you through the summer months. Keep in mind that you may need to switch to lighter products that better suit your summer complexion. Don’t forget about areas beyond your face that might need a little extra TLC like your neck, knees and elbows.
4) Keep It Light:
Heavy or oily sunscreens can be tough to keep up with during the hot and humid days of summer. Moreover, overly oily products can actually lead to breakouts and shine. So find something light that works with your skin, just be sure you’re getting the necessary SPF.
