These are some tips to help your skin during the hot summers to make sure your skin is glowing and healthy.
Cut down your skincare routine
During the summer due to the hot sun, you perspire more as you’re hit with direct sunlight. Instead of having a heavy skincare routine, adapt to a lighter routine. When you sweat your pores open up which starts to collect bacteria, and when you wear a lot of makeup it prevents you from perspiring.
Vitamin C Serum.
According to Healthline, Vitamin C helps you all year round. Vitamin C prevents hyperpigmentation and reduces the chances of wrinkles. The way you apply this product is to simply use a few drops to your skin between your cleaning and moisturizing process.
Staying hydrated is the best thing you can do for your skin all year round and especially in the heat. According to Healthline, Drink two to four glasses of water per hour you spend outside in the heat or direct sunlight. When working in a hot environment, your body requires more water than normal since you will lose more fluids via perspiration.
Sunscreen Is Necessary
Sunscreen is a non-negotiable must-have. Wearing sunscreen helps protect your skin from the harsh UV rays from damaging your skin and can ultimately help prevent skin cancer in the long run. All you need to do is apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside. There are many different forms of sunscreen that can come in such as; gel, cream, sticks, sprays which work differently for different skin types.
Exfoliation should be done on a regular basis, regardless of the season. According to an interview by Bybird with Rachel Burns, Exfoliating ensures that the dead cells are completely removed,’ explains Burns. ‘If we don’t remove the dead cells, our skin can appear dull and, in time, our pores can become blocked, which often leads to a breakout of acne or oily skin.’”
These tips will most definitely help during the hot rays to keep your skin young, clear, and most importantly, healthy.
