Summer Skin Care
Now that you’ve put away your winter clothes, what should you do to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy in summer?
Did you know you can prepare your skin in advance for a holiday in the sun? Jeannette Graf, a dermatologist, says she wears sunscreen on her body every night for 2 or 3 weeks ahead of her vacation so the sunscreen can build up in the outermost layer of the skin, making her skin less likely to burn.
A thicker sunscreen lotion takes far longer to rub in. but if you will be at the beach, a heavy, water-resistant lotion is well worth the trouble of rubbing in and re-applying frequently. If you’re prone to breakouts, do look for an oil-free sunscreen.
Even if you have oily skin, you need to moisturize it. Oil and moisture (water) aren’t the same thing. Use a non-oily cream that penetrates deep into the skin so it can keep doing its job—hydrating your skin—from the inside, even if you perspire or shower. InfiniteAloe Skin Care is just such a cream, with the outstanding benefits of Aloe.
Don’t forget that hydration is also about drinking plenty of water. I find it helpful to keep water bottles handy, to remind myself to drink more often on the go.Water and lots of fruits and veggies are important to your skin in summer.
