Summer is a time for the outdoors, natural fruits, and soaking in the hot, summer sun. I like not only to spend a long and relaxing day in the sun, but to have flawless gorgeous skin. Poor skin care habits can cause premature aging and skin damage. That’s why we share skin care tips to make you feel clean and fresh throughout the summer.
Apply and Reapply Sunscreen
Dermatologists estimate that as many as one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their life. Because of this, dermatologists recommend applying and reapplying sunscreen every day that they are exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Most adults only need an ounce of sunscreen to cover their entire body.
Bonus Summer Skincare Tips: Your lips are also vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays. You can apply a lip balm that has an SPF of 30 or higher.
Keep Skin Hydrated
Summer sun can be very irritating and can cause serious damage to the skin due to dryness. It is important to keep your body hydrated and to keep your skin hydrated. Moisturizing is a good way to keep your skin hydrated. It is recommended to use an aqueous moisturizer instead of an oily moisturizer, which will over dry your skin in the long run.
Because of all the sweat caused by the hot sun, you may feel that you need to bathe many times a day; it is best to moisturize immediately after locking in moisture.
Use Natural Remedies
Using natural remedies that you will easily find in your home is a great and affordable way to show your skin, and your wallet, some love. Squeeze a tomato into an ice tray and let the juice freeze. Use this as a gentle scrub every other day and let the juice dry on the skin before washing it off. Tomatoes have lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps protect the skin from any light damage. Lycopene is also commonly found in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables like guava, mango, papaya, pink grapefruit, and lemons.
