Summer Skincare: 5 Tips for Keeping Your Face Looking Fresh and Fabulous
Summer is officially here, so I hope you're getting out there and enjoying the sunshine. But did you know that your face can suffer from acne breakouts and sunburn if you don't take care of it properly over the summer months? To prevent this from happening, just follow these 5 tips before hitting the beach and I promise your smiling face is all that will be shining over the summer.
Summer Skincare Tip#1 - Exfoliate
The winter and spring season are tough on the skin. With snow storms and rainy days, your face can get dry and develop blemishes. So now is the time to exfoliate your face with a powerful exfoliator. Exfoliating your face at least once a week, removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin looking fresh and renewed. Try GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser it really works!
Summer Skincare Tip #2 - Spritz and Refresh
Hot summer days can make you sweat, especially, if you like to go jogging or do something active. So when sweat beads run down your face, wiping them off with a towel might get rid of it, but, unfortunately, you now have clogged pores which might lead to acne. So refresh your skin right after working out (or after sweating up a storm) with my personal favourite Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist. I love this Yves Rocher spritzer, it's perfect for setting your make-up or as a skin refresher. I use it all the time and it really makes my face feel fresh and clean.
Summer Skincare Tip #3 - Use an SPF Moisturizer
During the summertime, make sure to wear a moisturizer with SPF. Without it, you expose your face to sunburn and developing age spots and wrinkles. I really like Olay Pro-X Age Repair Lotion with SPF30. It glides on smoothly, it's not greasy, and provides maximum protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays.
Summer Skincare Tip #4 - Get a Lip Balm with SPF
Over the summer, don't forget about moisturizing your lips. We focus so much on protecting our faces from getting sunburned, that we forget to protect our lips. Try Nivea A Kiss of Recovery Medicated Lip Care SPF15, it's inexpensive, not sticky, and goes on with a matte finish.
Summer Skincare Tip #5 - Wear an Overnight Mask
At least once a week, wear an overnight mask on your face to deep cleanse and tighten the skin on your face. The following morning when you rinse off the mask, you'll notice positive changes. Try Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, it moisturizes the skin and leaves it feeling smooth and clean.
