Although you should really make an effort to look after your skin throughout the year, a lot of people don’t and will only have a crack at maintaining a skin care regime when they can see that summer’s just around the corner. Well, that’s where we’re at, summer really is almost here. The sun is certainly making an appearance and a lot of people, who usually ignore the condition of their skin, are rushing to the shops to stock up on intensive moisturiser to try and make themselves look good in time for the hot summer weather.
If you’re in need of some guidance on how to make sure your skin is glowing in time for summer, then here are our top tips:
It’s essential that you’re aware of the sun during the summer months. That doesn’t just mean when the sun’s beaming and it’s hot outside, it means all of the time. If you don’t want your skin to dry out or get burned then it’s really important to apply sunscreen, with at least a protection factor of 15, throughout the day, every day.
If you’re likely to forget to apply sunscreen as part of your morning routine then try this booster from Dermalogica with SPF 50. You can add the booster to your daily moisturiser and it will protect against UVA and UVB rays throughout the day.
Be ready to make lifestyle changes
The condition of your skin is extremely dependant on the things that you put inside your body. Sometimes, keeping up with a regular skin care regime isn’t enough, in which case it’s time to take a look at your eating and drinking habits.
In order to maintain your skin’s condition you need to make sure you’re using the right products. There are huge ranges of skin care products out there but it’s no good using products that aren’t intended for your skin type. This guide will help you identify your skin type; once you know what type of skin you’re dealing with you can buy appropriate products. The majority of brands will have sections dedicated to certain types of skin; Dermalogica, for example, has a Skin Kit for each skin type and each kit contains one month’s complete regimen that will help get your skin back to its best.
