7 Common Sense Skin Care Tips for Summer

Summer’s quickly approaching in the western hemisphere and that means it’s time for you to pay extra special attention to your skin, otherwise you’ll probably regret it later. These tips are in no particular order because they’re all important to the overall health of your skin.

  1. Drink lots of fluids. Water is the best, but any fluids that don’t contain a lot of caffeine, sugar, alcohol, or salt will work. The idea is to keep yourself hydrated; it will help to keep your skin supple.
  2. Eat your fruits and veggies. The nutrients found in fruits and vegetables will help your body combat free radicals and other nasties that want to harm your beautiful skin.
  3. Keep it natural. Whenever possible, avoid harsh chemicals in your skincare products. Double check the ingredients list and if you have a hard time pronouncing it, you probably shouldn’t be using it. When in doubt, look it up first.
  4. Moisturize. Avoid oil based products (just think about what ingredient is used to cook french fries) and select a moisturizer that’s custom tailored for your skin type.
  5. Use sunscreen. A number of moisturizers, and even some makeups, are now coming with SPF protection built in. Just remember to use the same rule of thumb as with the moisturizer — avoid oil based whenever possible.
  6. Use lightweight make up. Whenever possible, avoid caking it on — you may even want to give bare minerals a shot — and when you’re done with your day (or night) on the town, wash it off and moisturize.
  7. Sleep well. When you’re sleeping, your body has a chance to repair all the damage that was done to it during your waking moments. Getting plenty of sleep gives your body plenty of time for those reparations.

And, of course, don’t forget to throw in the occasional facial. Follow these tips and you’re sure to have glowing skin all year long.

    I’ve been using the Aveeno moisturizer because it has soy in it. That would definitelly be a good moisturizer to use this summer, but make sure to get the one with SPF 15 in it. I accidentally got the one without. opps.
