Summer Skin Tips!

Now that summer has fully arrived, we’re all spending much more time outdoors. Taking care of your skin in the summer is not just about wearing sunscreen, here are the best days to keep your body’s largest organ as healthy as possible!

Spread It On

If you’re spending lots of time in the sun, choose light colored long layers. Choosing a hat with SPF built in a great option and don’t forget sunglasses to protect delicate skin around the eyes. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, even on cloudy days, as much as 80% of the sun’s rays can still penetrate your skin.

Get Shady

If you can, avoid spending prolonged time in the sun when it’s rays are strongest, typically between 10AM – 2PM. A good test is to check your shadow – is it shorter than you? Find yourself some shade.

Drink up

Your skin is an organ and is made up of cells that require water to properly function. If your skin doesn’t get adequate water it will become dry, tight and flaky and more likely to wrinkle. Aim to get water throughout the day and shoot for half your body weight in ounces.

Moisturize

Applying a moisturizer immediately after getting out of the shower will help your skin maintain moisture and make sure to avoid super-hot water as it can be extra drying for the skin.

Stay safe out there and have fun!
