It is a true fact that the hot weather can affect your skin negatively.Ã‚Â This is also the time of the year when most of us forget to take proper care of our skin due to relaxation and entertainment.Ã‚Â Summer is known for scorching heat; and humidity changes both the weather and your skin.Ã‚Â So, what can we do to enjoy the sun, while preventing our face and skin from sun damage?
Moisturising your skin with products catered for your skin type, whether it is oily, dry or normal is very essential during the summer months as your skin requires more moisture since you lose your body water by sweating.Ã‚Â Ensure that your moisturiser contains SPF of at least 15, or many sunscreen brands like oil of Olay, Johnson and Johnson or Forever Living Aloe Vera today come with SPF 50-70 which has a better protection for your skin.
If you want the products you put on your skin to help improve it, you have got to begin by protecting it by wearing sunscreen regularly which will help prevent sun damaged skin, sun burns, and even skin cancer.Ã‚Â However, for those of us who want a tan, applying SPF helps your skin tan evenly and sunscreen helps promote a longer lasting tan.
Summer time is when most people develop acne or skin blemishes.Ã‚Â Steaming your face routinely is one way of avoiding blemishes during the hot months since your pores open up and you get rid of oils and dirt which can clog your pores. Dry skin will only need 5 minutes of steaming while oily skin needs double the time.
