Make Your Skin A Priority This Summer
With the lovely weather finally upon us, we are all heading out to make the most of the summer heat. While it’s good for our skin to have some exposure to the sun, the sun can be extremely damaging to our skin, so it’s important to take extra care when you’re heading to the great outdoors. You may have found that your skin has become dry and cracked and sometimes, moisturiser simply isn’t enough to solve your skin dilemmas. Take a look at how you can heal your skin and enjoy beautiful glowing skin this summer.
Drink plenty of water
We all know how important drinking water is for our general health, and the same goes for our skin. Have you ever wondered why your lips or hands are dry and cracked? It’s simply because you’re not consuming enough water. Try to aim for at least 2 liters a day and remember to drink even more when the sun is particularly hot as you will lose a lot of water from sweating. If you’re struggling to drink enough water throughout the day, why not buy yourself a water bottle that can help monitor your water intake? Some bottles have times of the day printed on them to help you keep track, and some even glow to remind you to take a drink.
Treat any underlying problems
For some people, their skin problems aren’t just because of the sun. People that suffer with psoriasis or eczema are particularly vulnerable in the hotter weather because of how dry their skin is already. Speak to your GP for some creams that can help keep your skin at it’s best in the summer heat. Alternatively, you could try using CBD oil or Thive Nevada as it’s been shown to help people with skin conditions. Cutting out dairy and nightshade vegetables is also a common factor for triggering skin problems, so consider eliminating them from your diet to help gain some relief and heal your skin.
Vamp up your skin regime
In the cooler weather, it’s likely that you moisturise when you’ve just bathed or showered, and also first thing in the morning or evening. In the summer you should be taking time out to moisturise your skin as often as possible. Buy creams that are gentle to the skin or a general emollient that’s designed to help lock moisture in your skin. Perfumed moisturisers should be avoided as much as possible as they can inadvertently dry out your skin even further.
Don’t cake yourself in make up
While it’s understandable that you want to pop a bit of make up on, it’s important to allow your skin to breath. Caking it with foundation and powder will cause your skin to become oily and break out in spots. Whenever possible, only wear the bare minimum and save the foundation for when it becomes cooler in the evenings.
Follow these tips and you will soon have soft and glowing skin! Remember to use plenty of sun cream to avoid further damage to your skin!
