Summer Skin Repair

It’s easy to get up in arms about dry skin caused by winter weather, but just because the after sun effects of aging are hidden by a tanned glow, doesn’t mean you don’t need to be just as vigilant during the summer months.

Here are  5 simple summer skincare tips your face will thank you for:

  1. Splurge: ever notice the moisturizers with UV protection run an extra twenty to thirty dollars? I am a firm believer in the old saying, you get what you pay for. If you really want to protect and preserve your skin, splurge on the double duty products
  2. Cover up: because vampires aren’t real and vitamine D is actually good for you in so many ways, I would never suggest completely abstaining from some sun shine, but be cautious of your essentials: eyes and forehead. Wear your sunglasses as much as you can and a hat when possible
  3. Drink water: as much of it as you physically can
  4. Overnight repair: because daily moisturizers have been embedded in our routines since our teen years, I don’t feel the need to tell you to find a good one, but an overnight repair cream will work wonders you don’t get from your morning application 
  5. Facial mask is a must: It doesn’t have to be a fancy expensive product.  A diy facial or natural face mask will boost hydration just as well. Allowing your skin to soak in nutrients for half an hour, at least twice a week will keep the long term effects of sun damage at bay
