The sun is at once our skin’s greatest threat and kindest complimenter. A sun kissed glow can go from golden to scarlet in the time it takes to fetch another bottle of sunscreen from the car. So how, you may ask, can you keep that bright, summertime glow without sacrificing your skin’s health and comfort? These simple tips may help you keep your golden glow, and protect you from crossing over into burnt-to-a-crisp territory.
Step one in any solid skincare routine is hydration. Drinking lots of water throughout the day will keep your skin bouncy and bright. Maintaining your hydration is a key step in skin care, but in the summer time, hydration’s importance is fiercely rivaled by SPF and serious, after-sun moisturizing.
Find a moisturizer that leaves your body feeling refreshed and dewy. Greasy lotions can block moisture, rather than supplying it. Save your body oils and butters for your post shower body so that you have plenty of water to trap between your skin and your favorite oil.
Gently exfoliating a few times a week will help keep your skin refreshed and vibrant, and also help maintain your hard earned summer glow by sloughing off dull dead skin. Keeping your skin exfoliated helps it better absorb all that good moisture you’re slathering on via lotions and potions and is an important step to summer skin care.
Your summer glow deserves your full attention, but troublesome, unwanted hair can keep you from enjoying your summer skin. If that’s the case, contact Laser Smooth today for a free laser hair removal consultation and get ready to bare it all (under liberal amounts of SPF)
