7 Ways to Get Your Skin in Shape for Summer
Most of us love summer—beach trips, days at the pool, longer nights! What’s not to love?
Unfortunately, some of our favorite seasonal activities may be making our skin look dull and tired while amplifying the characteristics we try to hide the most, like fine lines and wrinkles.
Whether you’re looking to protect your skin from extra time outside preemptively or you want to keep a healthy glow all summer long, we’ve got all you need to know to accomplish both.
Keep your skin in shape come summer with these steps.
Maintain a Healthy Glow All Summer Long
Hot weather, sweat, dirt, and long hours in the sun are sure to do a number on your skin this summer. Keep your body’s largest organ safe with a few simple tips.
Not just your face, but your entire body! Spending time out in the sun and wearing strappy sandals every day can make your skin dry and rough.
Our skin sheds cells all day, every day and if we don’t remove them, they’re just sitting on top of each other and piling up. Want skin that glows? You have to exfoliate.
2. Hair Removal the Right Way
If you remove hair, make sure you’re doing it the right way. Investing in high-quality shaving cream and razors are essential and if you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution laser hair removal may be the answer.
3. SPF Everyday
Did you know sunscreen expires? If you’ve been hoarding half-empty bottles from last summer, toss them and buy some new ones.
Same goes for any old makeup like foundation or moisturizer that you’re relying on for SPF protection. Make sure you use both face and body sunscreen whenever you’ll be outside!
4. Increase Vitamin C Intake
Vitamin C is your skin’s best friend. You can get the nutrient from fruits and veggies, or you can buy a serum with Vitamin C.
If you rely on the serum route, we recommend using this only at night before bed as it can make your skin more vulnerable to the sun during the day.
5. Rejuvenation Treatments
Sometimes you need a little more help than home remedies, and routines can offer. Speak with one of our team members about our skin rejuvenation options like Fractora™ and FORMA™, laser peels, and other services that only certified technicians can perform.
6. Mind Your Feet
Most people will prioritize their face and then their body, but don’t let your feet go untreated this summer.
If you’re not getting regular pedicures, be sure you’re scrubbing off dead skin and moisturizing your feet at home.
7. Treat Yourself
If you’re looking for some simple and relaxing ways to get your skin in check, invest in some masks. You can find face and feet masks at any drugstore or even order online! It’s an easy and fun way to moisturize, even on the go!
