Warmer weather calls us to go outside whether that be going to the beach, taking a hike, or running around the neighborhood. These outdoor activities often lend themselves to a warm summery complexion – thanks to the sun’s rays. Follow these tips to get you one step closer to radiant summer skin while keeping it healthy and protected.
Protect Your Skin
We cannot stress this enough – sunscreen is vital, especially during the summer. With the sun being higher and brighter as well as out longer than any other time throughout the year, you must take precautions to ensure your skin’s safety. So apply sunscreen sprays, lotions, and powders any time you leave the house. Be sure to reapply every two hours.
Implement Vitamin C Products
Vitamin C is an ingredient that protects your cells against the effects of free radicals - molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to external irritants such as UV rays. There are plenty of ways to add it to your skincare regime from cleansers and scrubs to moisturizers and serums. You’ll notice immediately how it brightens the complexion while hydrating and minimizing the appearance of dark spots and scars.
Add Zinc to Your Routine
People often mistake zinc for sunscreen, but they are different – even though zinc is a key ingredient that can be found in some sunscreens. Zinc fights against UV rays, making it essential to your morning skincare routine so that you’re protected throughout the day. It also transforms your complexion while soothing and protecting the skin from the inside and out. You’ll see how it helps you heal irritating conditions, maintain a youthful glow, and provide protection.
Going into this summer, make sure to protect yourself from the sun. It’s always possible to get a summer glow and enjoy your tan skin while being safe. If you adhere to the list above, you'll come out of summer with your best skin yet.
