As summer approaches, chances are you’ll be spending more time in the sun and showing more skin. Whether you’re spending the summer at the beach or not, it’s important to make sure your skin is ready so you can look great all summer long and keep your skin healthy. Here are five ways you can protect your skin all summer long so you can enjoy the beautiful weather without worrying about the damage it is doing to you.
1. Wear sunscreen
It seems like a common sense tip, but many people still forget to put sunscreen on when they’re going to be in the sun. Even if you’re only going in the sun for a short time, sunscreen should be a part of your routine in getting ready. Many daily skin care and beauty products, from lotions to makeup, have sunscreen in their formulas to help protect your skin.
2. Simplify your skin care routine
If you have a busy summer, it can be hard to stick with a complex skin care routine. But just because you’re going to be busy doesn’t mean you should neglect your skin! Simplify your skin care routine to the essentials so you can take care of your skin no matter how busy you are this summer. If you’re tired of regularly waxing or shaving, now’s the time to consider laser hair removal in RI. This won’t just simplify your skin care routine, but it’ll also eliminate the irritation and other skin conditions that can arise from waxing or shaving, such as ingrown hairs and rashes.
3. Drink plenty of water
It can be easy to get dehydrated during the summer. If you’re not drinking enough water, your skin will show it! Drinking enough water will not only help keep you cool but will help make sure your skin is in good shape all summer long as well.
4. Keep an eye on the clock
The sun is at its most damaging from about 10:00 a.m. until about 1:00 p.m. This is the time when the sun is at its highest, meaning UV rays are at their strongest. You may want to avoid being outside during this time of day to protect your skin from the harmful and prematurely aging effects of the sun.
5. Check in with a professional
