All About Summer Skin Care

summer skin careTaking care of your skin is important regardless of the season. That being said, most of us understand the kind of thing we need to remember for our skin in the winter, particularly those of us with dry skin or eczema. However, it is still critical to take good care of our skin in the summer months. To that end, here are some things to remember about summer skin care.

Always Wear Sunscreen

Do you spend any time outside, even when its cloudy? You should always apply sunscreen during the summer months if you want to protect your skin. Ideally, pick a high quality sunscreen without oil and with an SPF of at least 30. You may also want to choose a water resistant one, though you will still need to re-apply shortly after swimming. This will help prevent sunburns, lower the potential for uneven skin tone, and reduce your risk of health issues like skin cancer.

Avoid Tanning Beds

Did you know tanning beds are terrible for your skin? Not only do they weaken it, but they can also cause uneven skin tone and other imperfections if you are not careful. Even worse than that, but they can also increase your risk of skin cancer. Thus, while it might be nice to start your summer vacation with a glowing tan, the risks far outweigh the benefits, which is why you will want to avoid them in your summer skin care routine.

Moisturize Me

We all know about moisturizing during the winter months, but did you know it is actually just as important during the summer? Your summer skin care routine should always include a quality daily moisturizer. You do not need the same one as in the winter, since those are usually richer, but not including even a basic one can severely compromise your skin’s health. Try to get one containing aloe vera if you can, since this can help soothe hot skin and sunburns, should they occur. Consistent use is key for long term benefits!
