A couple of days will come calendar summer, but the weather conditions are already in all, as you are the hottest season of the year. This means that it is time to change your daily beauty rituals to special summer skincare. And that’s what it is.
Summer glow: the main rules of summer skincare
This is the first and main factor – always, always wear sunscreen with high SPF and UVA protection (designated “z” – the more, the better). It is also worth protecting the skin from the blue radiation that comes from all gadgets with screens. For the summer, look for creams with the designations SPF, UVA, and Blue Light.
Hydration is always necessary, but in summer especially. Simple hydration, other ways to saturate the skin with moisture and fix the natural – no. Summer’s main problem is the numerous heat, which dehydrates the body and makes the skin dry. Dry skin is prone to damage and dullness, and it should be regularly smeared with creams and serums to compensate for the loss of moisture. A good moisturizer acts as a barrier to contaminants, bacteria, and tanning.
Choose for summer low-fat gel cream or water-based moisturizer containing vitamin E. Nanosy on the skin at least twice a day; it will help preserve the natural moisture in the skin, maintaining its tone and elasticity.
Also, make masks with moisturizing components 1-2 times a week. Preferably overnight.
You can add a serum or booster to your routine, which will allow all the useful substances of basic care to penetrate deeper into the skin.
In summer, it is more common to exfoliate the skin, but not scrubs and soft peels. For moisturizers to work, they must penetrate deep balls of skin. And it is difficult to do it if the face has accumulated a lot of dead skin cells. To do this, you need to use peels and scrubs regularly. Exfoliation makes a face more attractive because the makeup falls smoother. It is advisable to alternate scrubs with abrasive particles and acid-based peels to stick to balance. Also, don’t exfoliate your skin every day because it can cause redness, rashes, and pimples. Exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week, preferably in the evenings, rather than right before going out in the sun.
Choose non-comedogenic remedies
Anything that blocks skin pores is a no-no-no because clogging pores leads to irritation, infections, and the most terrible – acne! Your daily skincare products, as well as cosmetics products, should be non-comedogenic. Look for oil-free, non-comedogenic, silicone-free notes. Since you’re sweating all the time in the summer, silicones and oil products will mix with the fat of your skin and dust. This can lead to both focal infections and acne.
Pay attention to aloe.
Aloe vera comes to the rescue for many skin problems. During the summer, especially because it turns into a soothing balm, cooling the skin after a long day in the sun. Aloe vera is also an anti-inflammatory and moisturizer. It soothes the skin and nourishes it intensely. It also contains antioxidants that protect cells from damage.
Drink more water
If the body is dehydrated, the skin will not be healthy and beautiful. Do you know how models achieve the perfect skin? Drink from 2, and in summer – 3 liters of water a day. Water is in both vegetables and fruits, so take this fact into account when compiling a drinking regime.
If your lips are constantly drying in the summer, this is a sure sign that you drink too little fluid. The norm is 1.5-2 liters of liquid from food. But in the summer the amount of water in the diet should increase. This will help maintain the hydro-lipid balance of the skin.
