During the summer everyone wants to get outside and get a tan. It is healthy to be out in the sun, but the sun itself can really do a lot of damage to your skin. If you take the time and do the right thing your skin will continue to look great. Below you will find the top ten ways to help your skin look its best for the entire summer.
Exfoliate the skin
Each morning when you get up take the time to nurture your skin. Exfoliating your skin helps to keep it looking its best. It also helps to remove the dirt that could be hidden in your pores. Going out in the summer heat can cause your pores to get clogged from the summer sweat. Of course this is something that you should do every day anyway but even more importantly during summer.
Avoid the makeup
One thing I have learned over the years is that not wearing makeup is the best thing that you can do for your skin. I know a lot of people are not going to like this idea, but natural is really best for your skin. Even if you are using all natural makeup, just let your skin breath naturally. If you have bad skin you will be surprised at how well your skin will look, within just a few weeks of not wearing makeup.
Moisturizing Sun screen
Moisturizing your skin is very important. Look for a skin moisturizer that has the right amount of SPF in it, and be sure to apply it daily. Do your research on these types of creams to make sure that you are using one that is really good for your skin. Remember that not all of them are created equal.
Drink More Water
Drink water all day long. Keep away from the soda, and the sugary filled drinks. You may not realize it but these drinks are really bad for you both internally and externally. Not only will your skin start to look good, buy you will start to feel good as well. Even though this is something that we should do everyday, it is especially important during the summer months. Remember that your body will dehydrate during the summer
Fresh Products for your skin
Have you ever considered using natural products for your skin, like strawberries, and oatmeal. There are tons of recipes that are natural and can be found online. Instead of buying products that will end up damaging your skin, choose those items that are made to make it better especially in the summertime. During the summer months you will find a lot of fresh fruit available that you can use for your skin care.
