Five Top Tips for Summer Ready Skin

Is your skin summer-ready? The harsh winter climate, environmental changes, and increased use of our heating at home can play havoc on your skin, leaving it feeling less than fresh and rather dull-looking. As summer approaches, it’s time to prepare your skin for the upcoming season. You can take a few simple steps to rejuvenate your skin and help it look its best for those long summer days and everything that comes with them. Below are a few quick tips to get your skin Summer ready in preparation for a permanent long lasting glow.

Drink More Water

Increasing your water intake is a simple yet effective way to give your skin the hydration it needs. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it needs water to function properly. Drinking enough water each day can help boost your skin’s health, keeping it looking fresh and hydrated. In the summer, when the heat and sun exposure can dehydrate your skin, it’s even more important to make it your mission to stay hydrated and keep your skin summer-ready.

Invest In A Good SPF

The FDA strongly recommends wearing a broad-spectrum SPF as the days heat up. This is crucial all year round, but it’s especially important in the summer to prevent sun damage or additional damage from UVA and UVB rays. Overexposure to the sun can cause skin cancers and accelerate skin aging, leading to increased wrinkles, a change in texture, loss of collagen, and skin spots. By investing in a good quality SPF, you’re taking a proactive step to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh and healthy.

Skin Treatment

Undergoing cosmetic skin treatments can help you to give your skin a fresh look and remove any dead skills, increase hydration, elasticity, and overall health and appearance. There are numerous skin treatments you can indulge in, each with its own benefits. For instance, a Glacial RX skin treatment can improve dehydration and fine lines, while microdermabrasion uses fine crystals to remove dead skin cells, revealing fresh glowing skin. Consider these treatments based on your specific needs and consult a dermatologist for professional advice.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin can help you remove any dead skin cells that have built up and are impacting your complexion. You can exfoliate skin on all parts of your body, not just your face. There are various effective exfoliants available, such as The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution or St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. Use these products once or twice a week, depending on your skin type and sensitivity, to work the product in and then remove any impurities. Remember to follow up with a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

Moisturise

Having a good moisturizing routine is crucial, especially in the summer, as it can allow you to reveal the best of your skin and keep it looking and feeling nourished at all times. These days, you can buy a variety of different moisturizers, all doing different jobs with different properties. From moisturizers with vitamin C for extra vitality and glowing skin to collagen moisturizers to help you boost collagen properties and improve elasticity. All you need to do is identify what moisturizers would work best for you and use them on a daily or even twice daily basis if you want to add a night cream to your daily routine, too.
