Guest Post - Summer Skincare Secrets

Summer Skincare Secrets!
Summer time is right at the corner ladies, meaning that it’s time to start caring more for your skin. The secret to a beautiful tan is to protect your face and body first. UV light has lots of detrimental effects for the skin. Redness, burns, sun spots, eczema, peels, and pimples are just some side-effects that you get when you sit in the sun all day long without using sunscreen. Some studies have showed that UV light may lead to aggravating skin conditions, including cancer. To prevent that from happening, it’s very important to have a daily skincare routine. Here are some tips to help you get a healthy, all-natural tan this summer.
Believe it or not, moisturizing the skin in the summer is just as important as moisturizing on the winter. Steer clear of creams that are heavy and oily, and choose water-based products that penetrate the skin in as little as 5 minutes. Proper moisturizing matters because it protect the skin from consuming too much water. Basically, you’re replenishing vitamins and minerals the complexion needs to look flawless.
Hydrating your skin in the summer matters just as much as moisturizing. Drinking water helps keep the skin smooth and elastic. Because it’s hot, the body loses water directly affecting the skin’s elasticity. You may not realize it, but if you notice that you’re sweating a lot, it is because the body feels completely dehydrated; as a consequence, it reacts. Sitting in front of the sun for many hours triggers excessive sweating. The skin may crack if you don’t hydrate. The lips are the most affected, but also the rest of your face and body. Water helps preserve skin glow. Also, in combination with a proper sunscreen for your complexion, you’ll be able to get the most perfect tan.
There’s no secret that if you want to have a beautiful, long-lasting tan you must use sunscreen. However, considering the wide variety of such products available in the marketplace, how do you choose the best product? In an attempt to compare one type of sunscreen with another, we often forget one thing – it’s not always about what brand you use, but about how you apply it on your body. A lot of us don’t know that it’s important to apply the exact same quantity everywhere; however, we must protect our face and sensitive areas of the body the most – hands, neck, chest area, upper thighs, shoulders.
The purpose of a sunscreen is to protect the skin from damaging UV and UVB rays. Some products are just meant to scatter the light, whereas others absorb the rays before getting onto your skin. Most people are used to buying the product with the highest SPF because they believe it’s the sunscreen that doesn’t cause cancer. However, research highlights that UVAs can be just as damaging. Even though these don’t cause sun burns, they do enter deeply into your skin causing wrinkles. Look for a sunscreen with a multi- or broad-spectrum protection for UV, UVB and UVA just be sure your skin is 100% protected from the sun.
When should I tan in the summer?
In mid-summer, when temperatures easily go beyond 30 degrees Celsius, it’s best to avoid sitting in the sun from 11 am to 3 pm. The perfect tan be obtained early in the morning, or after 3 pm. The sun rays may not be just as powerful, but at the very least you are protected. It will take about a week before you see results, but we assure you that it will be worth the wait.
The secret to a uniform, beautiful and long-lasting tan is all about looking after your body. Quality sunscreens with a SPF of 15+ are the best. Don’t use sunscreen at the beach only, but throughout the day as well. Look for cosmetics with a SPF factor, such as an anti blemish foundation, hand cream, moisturizer, etc. It will help you have the color on your skin that you want in the summer, without fluctuations in shade. You wouldn’t want your hands to look more tanned than your face or body would you? Well then, if you don’t want that to happen you are advised to use both sunscreen and conventional cosmetics with a SPF during the day as well.
