One of the many perks of the summer season is the weather. Hot days are followed by great warm nights, leaving room for many combinations of activities, outings, and best of all, parties! With the extended periods spent outside during the summer comes the amplified risk and vulnerability for your skin. Follow these basic tips to boost the appearance of your skin throughout the summer.
1. Cover up
Although during the summer is when you bring out the tank tops and shorts, at the same time our skin can use a little break – at least part of the time! Whether you wear a baseball cap or big sun hat, try using hats and scarves to conceal your skin from exposure to the sun while keeping great trendy summer styles.
Because of the summer heat, you tend to sweat more and your skin looses elasticity and becomes dried out. To help balance this effect, eat plenty of foods that are high in antioxidants, protein, and vitamin C. Drink plenty of water and limit your intake of sugary drinks. Lastly, incorporate dairy products to offset the loss of calcium from sweat.
3. Provide Moisture and Protection
Keeping your skin moisturized and protected is very important to maintain a nice summer glow. The Clear Essence Platinum Line ‘Skin Beautifying Milk with UVA/UVB SPF15’ will help to thoroughly moisturize your skin while providing great protection from the sun. For a non-hydroquinone based product, offering similar sun protection, go with the Clear Essence ‘My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Body Lotion w/ SPF 15’. In addition to the above mentioned tips, your skin will be able to reduce the effect of sun damage.
