Looking After your Skin in Summer


all know how lovely it is to feel the sun on your skin and in summer it’s nicer
than ever to spend days outside soaking up the rays. But, the sun can really be
damaging to your skin, causing wrinkles, premature ageing, dry skin, marks and
even in the worst case, skin cancer. So, it’s really important that you look
after yours. Here are some tips for looking after your skin in summer to help
you protect yours:

Wear SPF
most important way to protect your skin in summer is by wearing SPF. Sun screen protects
your skin from the harmful UV rays giving you a layer of protection. It’s
important to make sure you always wear sun screen when out in the sun and take
extra care in areas where the skin is particularly delicate such as the face,
neck and chest. Wearing a higher factor in these areas is recommended to give
the skin extra protection. Many beauty brands offer foundation and BB creams
which include SPF, so check yours to make sure you’re looking after your skin
on a daily basis.

Drink Water
of the best ways to look after your skin is to make sure you’re drinking enough
water. It’s recommended that you drink around 2 litres of water per day, so if
you’re used to doing this, up your water intake in summer to compensate for the
amount of water your body loses whilst sweating. Drinking water is the best way
to keep skin looking healthy, elasticated and fresh, plus it also helps to rid
skin of nasty blemishes and spots.

Always Moisturise
temperatures can really impact on your skin making it dry and flaky. The heat
can really dry out your skin leaving it lacking in moisture so using a more
intensive moisturiser, especially at night in the hotter months is recommended
to keep it feeling soft and supple. Try using a Bliss face mask on your face before
moisturising to cleanse pores as excessive sweating in summer can cause them to
clog, then apply a really intensive moisturiser overnight to penetrate the
deeper layers of skin. An all over body moisturise should concentrate on
generally drier areas including elbows, knees and heels.

Looking after your
skin in summer is hugely important and should be taken seriously to ensure you
look great and stay healthy. By following these tips you’ll have a gorgeous
glowing complexion all year round.
