As we migrate outdoors and embrace the sun it is easy to forget our skin might need a little time to adjust. Having been largely covered up all winter you can’t just thrust it into the light. If you rush it you might well end up looking like a clown who has just run a marathon. Red-faced and sweaty is not a good look in anyone’s book.
Here are a few tips to stay cool in the summertime.
Too much sun, salt water and heat can dry out the skin, so it’s important to use a good moisturizer, especially on the face. But, don't forget about the rest of your skin - as we shed layers of clothing, we expose more skin to the elements and need to repair and replenish it accordingly.
You can also help hydrate your skin by drinking enough water and eating fruit and vegetables. They are not just healthy but also contain a lot of water, which is slowly released and will help in the fight against dehydration.
Without a doubt, the most important thing to do is to protect your skin from the relentless sun. Too much sun is bad for your skin in so many ways, from increased risks of skin cancer to ageing effects. Also if you get sunburn it reduces your skin’s ability to release excess heat, so it’s harder to cool down.
Use a sunscreen with a high SPF factor. It also helps to pick one that won’t leave your face looking like a ghost and smelling like a pina colada.
