How to Get Glowing Summer Skin
When you think of summer, you think of glowing sun-kissed skin.
You’re probably ready to get out and soak up the sun after this year’s harsh winter. Not so fast. Whether you’re laying on the beach or having a picnic in the park, remember to protect your skin. Glowing skin doesn’t automatically happen just because the weather gets warmer. In fact, the summer heat can actually do more damage to your skin than you think if you don’t take care of it properly.
However, with the right products and skincare regimen, you can achieve glowing skin just in time for your fun, summer outings. Here is what you need to get gorgeous skin:
Protect your skin from the sun’s rays
You’re probably tired of hearing this again and again but it’s absolutely the number one most important part of your skincare routine: use a moisturizer that has SPF. Just because the sun isn’t beaming down on your skin doesn’t mean it’s rays aren’t damaging. As long as the sun is out, your skin needs to be protected. Remember to use a moisturizer with SPF daily, such as the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. If you are going to be on the beach, remember to apply SPF to the rest of your body as well. Remember those easy to forget areas, such as your ears and lips.
Remove your makeup before bed
If you’ve had a long day, you might go to bed without removing your makeup. While doing that once or twice might not matter much, don’t make it a habit. Leaving your makeup on will clog your pores and cause unwanted breakouts. To make removing your makeup a cinch, use a wipe, such as the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. Makeup remover wipes are easy to travel with, especially if you’re at the beach or pool.
Exfoliate regularly with a scrub
Spending any time outdoors during the summertime will leave your skin feeling oily and grimy. It’s important to cleanse your face twice day but even that might not be enough. Especially when it’s warm outside, remember to exfoliate at least twice a week with a scrub. This will get all the excess gunk off your face that a cleanser can’t. Try the Befine Pore Refining Scrub with Coconut Jojoba and Citrus (it smells great too!).
Take care of your skin from the inside out
Last (but certainly not least), remember to take care of your skin from the inside out. No matter how many products you use, your skin won’t glow if you don’t take care of your body. Get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and drink plenty of water.
