Summertime is the season to decompress and enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer. Whether you are relaxing by the pool or the beach, enjoying sports, or out on the patio; It’s essential to protect yourself from the sun and stay hydrated. Here are just a few of our best summer beauty tips so that you can stay protected and (hopefully) sunburn free.
Those UVA/UVB rays are always around us, but in the summer months, they are more damaging as our planet is closer to the sun. And with the warmer weather, it’s easy to forget protection and get caught up in pure enjoyment.
The Best Summer Skin Care Routines
Now that summer has fully arrived, it’s time to look at your skincare products (and your routine) so that you can enjoy the season safely. Stay hydrated – and sunburn free for your best summer ever!
Summer Skin Protection
Think protection first – Whether that means covering up with a hat, pants, and long sleeves, or using the appropriate sunscreen for your activities. And of course – Always remembering to protect your eyes with sunglasses. Fortunately for us, there’s a lot of choices available these days from organic and natural skincare brands. You can select your favorite Mineral Sunscreen physical block formulas with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide as their active ingredients. Or for a lighter feel, select the newer coral reef safe lightweight lotions. Whichever method you choose, make sure that you apply your sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going out in the sun, or as directed.
Limiting your exposure to UV Rays is the very best way to prevent sun damage to your skin.
