The weather might suggest otherwise, but believe it or not, we’re in the middle of summer.
From a beauty perspective, this throws out a whole host of different considerations. While we might not have to be as overly enthusiastic with the moisturizer as we are in the winter months, there are still countless other factors to think about. Through today’s article, we will now take a look at four beauty tips that are key if you want to maintain a glowing, healthy summer appearance.
Get rid of dead skin cells
One of the most important factors to remember is that you’re going to need to exfoliate more frequently than you would in the winter months. The reason for this is that your skin is going to be much more susceptible to the elements.
If you don’t get rid of dead skin cells, they will clog up your pores and make it much harder for your skin to breathe. This can lead to a host of different problems, including acne, dehydration, and even premature aging. So, how can you ensure that you exfoliate as often as you need?
Well, if you’re looking for a quick fix, there are plenty of exfoliating products out there that can help with this. All major beauty retailers will stock them and provide the appropriate guidance, with the stores in Covent Garden being particularly helpful.
Alternatively, you could also try one of the many natural home remedies that are out there.
Moisturize more often
While we might not have to moisturize quite as much in the summer months, it’s still vital that we do so. The reason for this is because our bodies are still going to be producing sweat and oil at a faster rate than they would in the winter period.
If we don’t moisturize as often as we should, our skin will become dry and cracked. This will then lead to premature aging and a whole host of other issues.
So, how can you ensure that your skin stays hydrated? Well, aside from moisturizing more often, it’s also essential that you choose a product that suits your needs. If your body produces a lot of oil during the day, you should choose an oil-based moisturizer. If not, then a water-based one will suffice.
Protect yourself from the sun
We all know that UV rays can cause severe damage to our skin, but did you know that they can also lead to premature aging? The sun’s rays can cause wrinkles and fine lines, making us look older than we are.
So, how can we protect ourselves from them? Well, firstly we need to make sure that we’re wearing sunscreen regularly. However, if you’re looking for something else, there are plenty of other options available too. For example, you could always wear a hat or sunglasses when you’re out in the sun or even invest in some UV blocking clothing if you’re going on holiday abroad.
Don’t forget about your hair!
Like our skin, our hair will also be exposed to more damage during the summer months than it would be in winter. This is because it’s exposed to more heat and UV rays which can cause severe damage over time.
So, what can we do about this? First, we need to make sure that we keep our hair protected from these elements by using products such as heat protector sprays. We should also try and avoid blow drying it too much and instead opt for air-drying whenever possible.
