Summer is quickly approaching and that means it’s time to break out the shorts and tank tops! To make sure you have summer ready skin, we’re giving you some skin care tips on how to get your skin ready for this summer!
H2O should become your best friend in the upcoming summer months. Of course it is important to stay hydrated all year long, but the intense heat calls for even more water intake. Water can help minimize dry skin and peeling that occurs as a result of sun exposure. The more you drink, the less dry your skin will be. Water will also help give the skin a luminescent glow. As you increase your water intake, your skin will start to have a new radiance.
To make it easier to drink more water, try getting a reusable water bottle that you can carry around. That way, it will be easier to stay hydrated throughout the day. A lot of people find that infusing water with different fruits and vegetables makes the water more refreshing. For example, drop a few blueberries, lemon slices, and ice cubes in the water bottle. Not only will it give your water a nice hint of flavor, you’ll also consume the nutrients from the blueberries and lemon!
Pack on the SPF
The number one thing to remember this summer if you want to keep skin healthy and even for those bathing suits and shorts is to wear SPF products daily! Sunscreen is an important part of keeping skin looking flawless and free of wrinkles or discolorations. Experts recommend using an SPF of 15 or 30 depending on your skin and time in the sun. If you are planning for a day out in the sun, make sure to apply a generous amount about every two hours. Check out Clear Essence SPF 15 products for sunscreens that easily absorb into darker complexions as well as products that treat hyperpigmentation while also protecting from the sun! A favorite is the Clear Essence My Natural Beauty Lotion with SPF 15 which maintains an even skin tone while prevent new dark spots and uneven tones.
Avoid ingrown hairs
Warmer weather means we’re probably going to be showing more skin, which means you may find yourself picking up the shaving razor more often. However, we know that shaving can lead to ingrown hairs and dark spots. For the best summer skin, make sure to exfoliate on a regular basis to avoid those two unsightly problems. Clear Essence cleansers help remove dirt, bacteria and oils that clog pores and lead to blocked hair follicles. Cleanse and exfoliate skin regularly to keep skin clean and clear of irritants.
Another way to beat razor bumps is to change your hair removal method. Ingrown hairs are most common after shaving. There are a multitude of different methods that work well to remove body hair, so try something new to see your summer skin glow. One of the best ways to remove hair in the summer is with hair removal crèmes. With these types of products, you will have a smaller chance of developing ingrown hairs and your skin will be smoother for longer.
