Hello! The summer season is a picnic and ice cream season. But it is the season of dry heat and intense sun. Summer becomes a time of stress for the skin with dust, pollution, and sweat. It takes a little work and cares to keep skin healthy and radiant in the summer.
Summer is here, and here is Debongo to inform you of some great and practical tips beyond the usual “use SPF” tips that you will hear this time of year. From juicy fruits to stylish clothing, it’s time to get smart and cool about summer skincare! Get it?
- Think Sun Protection
If you’ve been reading half of the blog posts online, you probably already understand that you need sunscreen/tanning cream. The main cause of skin problems like premature aging, dark spots, and dullness is sun damage. But when you apply sunscreen, it is just as important how much SPF you use regularly.
You must apply your SPF at least 10 minutes before going out in the sun so that your skin absorbs the activator and is ready to protect you. Avoid entering the kitchen immediately after applying SPF – heat will not allow SPF to be absorbed properly. Reapply to your SPF every 4-6 hours for better protection.
- Load Up On Antioxidants
Free radicals sound like radicals, and they are. When combined with UV rays, suffice it to say that free radicals are hazardous. The sole protection against free radical damage is antioxidants. The human body produces antioxidants, all on its own, to counteract the harmful effects of free radicals. However, in most cases, free radicals outnumber natural antioxidants by large margins. That is why it is important to help by consuming foods rich in antioxidants and applying them to the skin. Here’s a list of summery fun that’s also rich in antioxidants.
- Oils rich in Vit E
- Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
When you get sunburned, your body suffers on the outside. Sunburn can easily dry out your skin, and getting the right amount of water can help you avoid dehydration. Severe sunburn can cause vasodilation, a process in which blood vessels flow through your body, causing your skin to dehydrate quickly. This can lead to fatigue and dry skin, and, in severe cases, heatstroke. Make sure you charge your water after sunburn and add electrolytes to regain your strength.
- Be Careful When Exfoliating
One of the best summer skin beauty tips? Exfoliate, but don’t overdo it. Getting rid of these dry skin cells is important-especially if you want to get rid of your fake sunburn-but too much exfoliation in your daily skincare routine in the summer will keep your skin against sunlight. You can be more sensitive. There is no reason to apply a rough scrub to the entire face during the summer as it removes dead skin and smoothes makeup with a little gentle exfoliation. Severe chemical peels and harsh scrubs should be stored in a cool time when the skin is not exposed to direct sunlight.
- Cover Up
When you are in the sun, it is best to cover yourself as much as possible. Take out your umbrella, wear breathable clothing that still blocks UV rays, put on a hat that protects your scalp, and do not forget to protect your eyes from the bright rays of the sun. Whether you’re on the beach or chilling by the pool, make finding shady areas a priority. Sunglasses make you look awesome, protect those peepers, and protect the fine skin on your eyelids.
It’s summer, and life is easy. So, keep practicing these important summer skincare tips by Debongo, keep your skin feeling, and look great throughout the summer.
