10 tips for glowing, healthy summer skin

 

Summer is officially here and we've rounded up the best tips to keep your skin glowing all summer long! 

1. Always apply SPF! 

Sun protection is crucial to skin health- in fact, it’s the most surefire way to prevent premature signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles) and hyperpigmentation ( discolouration and brown spots). Apply your sunscreen every morning or 20 minutes before any outdoor activities. To ensure your skin stays protected throughout the day, remember to reapply every two hours.

2. Protect your Hands and Feet 

Open toed shoes like flip flops and sandals leave you susceptible to sun damage. Keep your SPF on hand when you’re out!

3.Exfoliate regularly. 

This is the secret to glowing skin! By removing pore-clogging surface impurities and dulling dead skin cells from the skin, exfoliation helps diminish discolouration and prevent future breakouts.

4. Hydration is key

Summer sun, heat, salt water, chlorine, and air conditioning can have negative effects on your skin. To give your skin an extra moisture boost, moisturize with SPF during the day and use a heavier night cream before bed. Bonus points for using a hydrating face mask!

To ensure your skin is silk-smooth from head to toe, moisturize your hands and your body too.

5. Eye Cream is essential 

Sun exposure can gradually thin your skin and cause wrinkles. Make eye care a priority so you wake up with plumper, well rested looking under-eyes. Try Consonant, Moisturizing Eye cream!

During peak hours from 11am-3pm, use a cap or hat to shield your face and neck from dangerous UVA/UVB rays. 

6. The secret ingredients. 

Ingredients like Grapefruit extract, Papaya extract, lactic acid, glycolic acid, and Salicylic acid give your skin that extra boost in brightening and smoothing.

7. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is key for brightening the complexion. Try the Schaf Revitalizing Vitamin C Serum to keep your skin looking fresh and remember to always wear SPF when using a Vitamin C serum in the morning. 

8. Detox

Use a purifying mask 2-3 times a week to deep clean skin, absorb shine, and reveal a refreshed, healthy looking complexion. 

9. Stay hydrated

Drink water throughout the day to prevent dehydration. 

Hot tip: If you need help with your daily water intake, spruce up your water with fresh fruit and mint! 

10. Go for a natural glow

Avoid tanning beds and try a self-tanner or tinted moisturizer instead so you can have summer skin without the dangers of overexposure.

Even better, try a tinted sunscreen like the CyberDerm Zinc Ultra Tinted Sunscreen.
