Summer Skincare: Keeping Your Skin Healthy and Glowing

As the temperatures rise, it's important to adjust your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Whether you're hitting the beach or just spending time outdoors, the sun, wind, and heat can take a toll on your skin. Here are some tips to help you keep your skin healthy and happy this summer:

  1. Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is important year-round, but especially in the summer when we tend to sweat more. Staying hydrated helps to keep your skin looking plump and healthy, and can also help prevent heat exhaustion.

  2. Cover Up: While it's tempting to wear as little clothing as possible in the summer, covering up can actually help protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Consider wearing a hat, lightweight long-sleeved shirt, or even an umbrella if you're going to be in direct sunlight for an extended period of time.

  3. Use Sunscreen: It's important to use sunscreen every day, but especially in the summer when the sun is strongest. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every two hours, or more often if you're swimming or sweating.

  4. Moisturize: Hot temperatures and dry air can leave your skin feeling parched, so it's important to use a good moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Shea butter and aloe lotion is a great option for summer, as it is light, non-greasy, and provides deep hydration.

  5. Avoid Hot Showers: While a hot shower may feel great after a day in the sun, it can actually strip your skin of its natural oils and leave it feeling dry and irritated. Stick to lukewarm water instead and try to limit your shower time to no more than 10-15 minutes.

By following these tips, you can help keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long. Don't forget to have fun, stay safe, and enjoy the sunshine!
