Summer is here and it’s easy to forget the effects of the sun on your skin while you’re sitting by the pool or swimming in the ocean. It’s once you get home, get in the shower, and the fun is over that you realize that the sun did a number on your skin.
Even if you’re not sunburned after a day at the beach, the effects of the sun on your skin can be extremely damaging over time, and can even be fatal if you develop skin cancer. In this blog, you’ll find a few summer skincare tips to live by.
While there is a huge debate waging over whether CBD products are good or bad for society, there’s very little doubt that CBD capsules and CBD oils are great for skin care. From wrinkles and other signs of aging to acne and dry skin, these products have been said to work by users.
Just make sure to talk to your primary health care provider before you decide to try any type of product you haven’t used before to ensure it works with any other medications or products you could be using.
Moisturize and Cleanse the Right Way
From joining the clean movement to not going to bed with your makeup on, there are quite a few things that you can do to protect your skin during the height of summer.
Make sure that you wash your face and moisturize as soon as you come in from outside. This way, the sweat doesn’t have time to dry on your face and sink into your pores.
While this should be very obvious, it bears talking about, as many people will put on sunscreen before they leave the house for a day out, but then fail to put it on again during the day.
Reapplying your sunscreen is important, especially if you’re going to be somewhere where you sweat, and the sunscreen comes off or even if you’re at the pool or beach.
While it may say it’s waterproof, you still need to reapply as needed, just to be on the safe side. The sun can cause damage to your skin and cancer, so forgetting could be fatal in the long run.
Wear a Hat
Many sun lovers don’t realize that their scalp can get burnt in the scorching sun as well. Not only are some hats super cute and fashionable, but they also protect your head and your face from the sun and the UV rays it beams down on you during a hot day.
This is one that you’ve heard a number of times growing up and on into adulthood. Drinking water is great not only to keep you hydrated but to protect your skin during the summer months as well. If you’re not a big water fan, try adding some lemon or other fresh fruit to the mix.
You can also get water to hydrate your skin by eating fresh fruits that have a lot of water in them. These fruits include watermelon and cantaloupe. These are not a substitute for drinking water, but they do help.
Know when Enough is Enough
It’s nice to be able to layout in the sun or frolic in the water, but you need to know when enough is enough. You don’t need to stay out in the sun all day long. Instead, get your sun in increments and always, always wear sunscreen.
These are just a few of the best skincare tips for summer out there. The biggest thing is to get your sun in moderation and to make sure that you always wear your sunscreen and hat.
