How to get your skin ready for summer

Summer is quickly approaching, which means more time in the sun. While you are planning your pool days, beach trips, evening BBQs, make sure you are also planning ways to protect your skin and keep it healthy in the heat and humidity. There are many different ways to get your skin ready for summer, and Carp Cosmetics offers a variety of different options for reaching your skin health and beauty goals.

First, we all know that staying hydrated is one of the most important factors of a healthy body. But, sometimes people forget that staying hydrated does not just mean consuming plenty of water. You also need to take measures to ensure that your skin stays hydrated.

 

  • First, keep your skin clean.

You will want to start with a cleaning routine. Never use soap, only use a quality cleanser. The humid summer air does help skin stay hydrated, meaning that the dry and flaky skin you get over the winter is less of a problem; however, skin can switch over from dry to oily. Additionally, you perspire more in the summertime, which produces water, salt, and proteins that can clog your pores. It is recommended that you use liquid cleansers over bar soaps.

  • Make sure you are keeping your skin moist.

Keep in mind that since you will be outside in the sun more, you are likely going to be taking more showers which will dry out your skin. Applying good skin care products that help skin retain moisture will help to combat the consequences of frequent showering. You will also want to ensure your hydrating products contains sunscreen, since increased sun exposure means a higher chance for harmful UV rays to damage your skin.

These practices are a good starting place, but if you are not seeing the results that you need, Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center offers a variety of medical skin care solutions.
