The hot weather is officially here! Although it may be very nice out, we still have to be sure to keep our skin protected in order to prevent any damage. Here are some tips to ensure that your skin will stay safe during the summer season!
1. Use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
I’m pretty sure you have heard this millions of times before, but I seriously cannot stress this enough! Exposing your skin to harmful UV rays will lead to premature aging and wrinkles which I’m sure none of us want. More importantly, it can even lead to life-threatening effects such as skin cancer. Although it may seem like a hassle to apply it on, there are several alternatives that can make it much more simple. Try using a sunscreen stick if your are too lazy or use a foundation that has SPF in it.
2. Drink plenty of water!
We tend to get dehydrated extremely easily during the summer as we sweat more to cool ourselves off, so be sure to drink a lot of water! This can help keep your skin hydrated as well as many other benefits.
3. Wear hats!
Hats serve as another form of protection from the sun. Currently, I love the baseball cap look, which I think is really cute and can keep your skin protected at the same time!
4. Carry a face mist with you.
Throughout the day, our skin can get dehydrated and heat up. Simply spraying your face with mist can keep it moisturized as well as cool you down. Even just using water can make a huge difference. If you want to DIY your own face mist, try mixing water and green tea for an even more nutrient-rich face mist!
5. Avoid dewy makeup and go for a matte finish.
Since we tend to sweat more in the hot weather, our skin produces more oil. If you have dewy or glowey makeup, these oils will melt off all the makeup. Instead, try to go for a more matte finish and use powder in order to increase the longevity.
6. Use lightweight skincare products.
Instead of layering on heavy and creamy skincare products, try to use lighter creams instead. Because of the humid and hot air, these heavy layers of product can clog up pores causing us to break out. Try using oil-free moisturizers.
I hope that you were able to learn some important tips from this post to keep your skin beautiful! Thanks for reading and go enjoy the summer!
