How to protect your skin during summer time

Summer's here! Sunny days, cool swims, and that perfect tan are calling. But before you hit the beach, let's talk sun safety. In this blog, we'll guide you through everything you need to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion, all while keeping your skin safe from the sun's damaging effects. 

 

Make Sunscreen a Habit 

Sunscreen is your first line of defense against the sun's harmful rays. Choose a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher and reapply every two hours, especially after sweating or splashing around. But don't stop at the beach! Sun exposure adds up, even on cloudy days, and can lead to dark spots and wrinkles. So, make sunscreen your daily summer sidekick! 

Seek Shade & Cover Up

The midday sun packs the most punch, so plan your outdoor activities accordingly. Seek shade whenever possible, under an umbrella, a beach cabana, or even a large tree. 

Top off your sun protection with protective clothing. Hats, sunglasses, and lightweight, long-sleeved shirts in tightly woven fabrics offer a constant defense, unlike sunscreen which needs touch-ups.

Don’t Forget to Hydrate 

Sun exposure can leave your skin feeling tight and dry. To keep your complexion fresh and youthful, prioritize staying hydrated throughout the day. Aim for eight glasses of water, depending on your activity level and climate. 

Additionally, a light, hydrating moisturizer acts like a protective barrier, locking in moisture and preventing further dehydration. Think of it as giving your skin a big drink of water it can sip on all day long!

Nutrients for Healthy Skin

Summer fruits and veggies fight sun damage with antioxidants. Omega-3s in fatty fish boost radiance. Consider a summer vitamin A, C, and E supplement for extra protection, but consult your doctor first.

Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, allowing your moisturizer to penetrate deeper and work its magic. Aim for 1-2 gentle exfoliating sessions per week to keep your skin smooth and healthy.

Give Your Skin a Post-Sun Boost 

After a day of basking in the sun, pamper your skin with a cooling after-sun lotion or refreshing aloe vera gel to soothe any irritation and replenish lost moisture. Your skin will feel revitalized and ready to take on whatever summer throws your way! 

Remember, summer sweat and sunshine can be a recipe for clogged pores! To keep your nose shine-free and blackheads under control, consider adding our hydrocolloid nose patches to your routine. These targeted patches draw out impurities and minimize breakouts, helping you achieve a clear and healthy complexion throughout the summer.


Takeaway: Sun Safety First

Summer's calling and your skin is ready! Arm yourself with the knowledge (and products!) to navigate the sun safely and keep your complexion glowing all season long. Remember, sun protection is a year-round commitment, but these summer-specific tips will help you conquer the heat and keep your skin happy.
