Can you feel it? Summer is right around the corner! While right now you may still want to grab a sweater before you leave the house, give it a few short weeks and you’ll be swapping that sweater for sunglasses and sandals. It won’t be long before you can step outside and feel the sun on your face and the warm breeze brushing across your skin. You’ll be able to spend long days relaxing on the beach or soaking up the sun at the lake.
While it may not be time to break out those shorts and sandals just yet, now is the perfect time to start taking steps to make sure your skin is ready for the summer season.
Why Should You Prepare Your Skin For Summer?
The short answer is that the weather is changing. It’s no secret that the cold winter weather can make your skin dry and flaky. However, it may surprise you to learn that those hot summer days you are looking forward to can impact your skin as well.
For starters, hot and humid air can make you sweat, which naturally increases your body’s oil production. This oil, known as sebum, not only gives your skin an oily sheen, but it can also stick to your skin and block your pores, making you more prone to breakouts. Humidity isn’t the only thing that causes your skin to produce more oil, though. In fact, if you live in an area that experiences hot and dry summers, you may still notice your skin taking on an oily sheen. This is because the dry heat is causing your skin to become dehydrated, which signals your body to compensate by producing more oil.
Of course, summer days also bring another concern for your skin – ultraviolet (UV) rays. While spending time in the sun is the best way to supply your body with vitamin D, too much time under the sun’s UV rays can do more harm than good. Of course, we all know that too much time outside can lead to an uncomfortable sunburn (and nobody wants that!), but those UV rays can do more damage than that—they can also contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Combine that with the increased exposure to air pollutants and you’ve got a recipe for accelerated aging. Don’t fret though. Taking a few simple steps today can help combat all of this.
Tips To Get Your Skin Summer-Ready
So, how can you make sure your skin is ready for all the upcoming summer fun? The key is to start now. Here are some simple steps you can take today to help your skin be summer-ready.
Adopt a skincare routine
The first step to having healthy, glowing skin this summer is to find a skincare routine that works for you. Of course, each of us has different skincare needs. Some of us struggle with dry skin while others are battling an oily sheen or struggling with skin that is easily irritated. Therefore, it’s important to lay the foundation for healthy summer skin by finding a skincare routine that works for you. When choosing skincare products, the key is to make sure you find a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer that help keep your skin looking and feeling its best year-round.
Make sunscreen your friend
As long as the sun is out, UV rays will find their way to your skin. Some of these rays can even penetrate glass barriers, which means you’re skin will be exposed even while driving in your car or enjoying the view from your kitchen window. Thankfully, you can easily protect your skin by adding your favorite SPF to your daily skincare routine. Don’t worry, though. You don’t have to apply thick, white sunscreen to your face every day. There are many options out there that are lighter and less pore-blocking. For added benefit, look for a formula that includes skin-nourishing nutrients like vitamin C and collagen.
Hydrate from the inside
Keeping your skin healthy and glowing all summer long requires keeping your body properly hydrated. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and just like every other organ in your body, it needs water in order to do its job. Start making it a habit now to drink more water throughout the day so that it will become a habit you won’t have to think twice about while you are busy enjoying all that summer has to offer.
Exfoliating your skin doesn’t just feel good, it also serves as an important part of your skincare routine. It helps you slough off dead pore-clogging skin cells and reveals a layer of healthy, glowing skin. When looking for a face or body scrub, look for one that suits your skin type and is made with all-natural ingredients that you can add to your routine 2 to 3 times a week.
Nourish with vitamins and antioxidants
In order to maintain a healthy pigment and glow, your skin needs plenty of vitamins and antioxidants. For the best results, you’ll want to make sure your skin is getting this nourishment from both the inside and the outside. While nourishment from the inside will come from things like your diet or supplement routine, nourishment from the outside is most conveniently done by choosing the right moisturizer. When choosing a lightweight moisturizer for the summer months, look for one that also includes ingredients like vitamins C and E.
