It’s that time of the year when we hit the beach and don’t want to return home. Summer is officially here and so are the dangerous sun rays, sweat and other skin-damaging elements that are commonly found outdoors.
During summer, a normal skin gets dry; an oily skin tends to get oilier and a dry one, even dryer, making the wrinkles more obvious. Since we are constantly sweating, there is also occasional pimples and breakout that tend to appear as well.
According to dermatologists, the summer season should not be underestimated when it comes to the skin care routine despite the fact it might seem that we only need to put our sunscreen on. So, just like our wardrobe, our skincare routine also needs some changes too.
Below, you can find a holistic list of skincare tips that can help you go through the hot summer days while protecting and keep the skin healthy and safe.
Drink plenty of water
This is the first, most important step to follow during the summer days. Without proper hydration, the skin cannot handle the risen temperatures which cause dryness. Eventually, wrinkles will become more obvious, the skin will look dull and unhealthy. Especially since during the summer days, you tend to stay a lot in air-conditioned areas that tend to significantly cause dryness in the very type of skin.
Don’t overprotect the skin
Putting tons of skincare products on your body and face is definitely not the right way to protect the skin during the summer days. Stick to basics and choose natural-based products. A goo moisturizer, sunscreen and a natural body deodorant and butter, are all you need.
Moisturize all the shaved parts
One of the biggest mistakes you can do during summer days is not moisturizing the parts on your body you constantly shave such as you’re your bikini line and armpits. These areas must be always moisturized with a good, natural body moisturizer to stay soft and to not get irritated. Since they are delicate areas, choose the right products without harsh ingredients. A good deodorant is a must!
Take care of your lips
And by that, we mean you need to always keep your lips well hydrated and soft. The sun, sea salt, and the wind are all components that work against the benefits of your lips whose skin is too thin. Always carry with you a lip moisturizer and occasionally, give them a nice massage with a soft lip scrub.
Not using your deodorant at the right time
Another mistake women generally do is to use their deodorant at the wrong time of the day. Applying deodorant before lunch time increases your chances to sweat more. According to a dermatologist, the best time to use the deodorant is during the evening hours when the skin tends to sweat less letting the deodorant is more effective in creating a plug to not let the sweat come out. For best results, using it twice, once in the morning and once in the evening, is what you need to do.
