Summer is rapidly approaching, and with it a whole new array of skin care concerns. Some people may not know this, but different seasons require different approaches when it comes to skin care. So, what does that mean for your natural facial care routine? As it turns out, more than you might think. As summer arrives, it brings with it increased heat and humidity, and those two things can play havoc with your delicate facial skin. Here’s what you need to know to make the most of your summertime skin care regimen.
Be Careful with the Sun
There was a song several decades ago that reminded us about our mothers’ warning not to “look into the eyes of the sun” – and that’s still sound advice today. In fact, it’s a good idea to shield your face and body from the sun too. You see, the sun’s ultraviolet radiation should only be experienced in small doses, since prolonged exposure can dry out your facial skin. Your best bet? Use a strong sunscreen to guard your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and limit your exposure to ensure that you minimize contact with that radiation.
When it comes to sunscreen, you should be using a product with an SPF high enough to effectively block those sun’s rays. The best of those products will also provide much-needed moisture and effectively add brightness to your skin as well. Just makes sure that you avoid the oily products, since that can clog your pores and cause other skin problems.
Keep it Clean…
Summer can have other effects as well. Thanks to the heat, you will find yourself sweating more often – and that can mean clogged pores with trapped debris and bodily oils. When that happens with your facial skin, you can end up suffering from acne and other blemishes – and that can put a real damper on your summer fun.
To prevent those skin care nightmares, focus on cleansing your face one or more times a day. Use gentle, natural facial products to remove the sweat, oil, and debris, and gently pat your skin dry when you’re done.
About that Moisture…
Remember that drying effect we discussed? Well, you need to do something about it if you want to maintain your healthy facial skin – and that means using an effective moisturizing agent and drinking plenty of water. Try to find a moisturizer with natural ingredients like aloe.
