arm weather doesn’t only signal a change in season, it also signals a time to change your skincare routine. Here are some of our favorite warm-weather skin hacks.
#1 Sunscreen, Sunscreen, SUNSCREEN
Sun damage not only leads to premature aging, but it can also cause skin cancer. Whether you are going to the beach or going about a normal day, incorporating SPF into your skincare routine is a necessity. Don’t forget to protect your scalp by sun screening your hair part. We like Formula 10.0.6 Picture Perfect Day Moisturizer.
Promote healthy and glowing skin by incorporating an exfoliant into your routine. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin and also prevents breakouts. Try a luscious shea sugar scrub created by Tree Hut.
#3 Look at Ingredients
Some ingredients cause the skin to be more sensitive to the sun. During the summer months, avoid skincare products that include ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide, retinol, and salicylic acids.
One of the most important skincare hacks is staying hydrated. Water does wonders for the body and the skin. Mayo Clinic suggests getting eight (8oz.) glasses of water per day. Just remember 8x8 and you’ll stay hydrated all summer long.
#5 Moisturize the Lips
Don’t forget to moisturize your lips during the summer months. Also, remember that your lips need to be protected from the sun as well. We love Nivea’s Sun Protection Chapstick that is also waterproof.
#6 Shower Cool
Cool down after a long day in the sun with a cold shower. Not only is showering cold beneficial for your hair, it also prevents your skin from drying out.
