With summer in full swing, we know it won’t be long before we jump into a lake, pool, or the sea to splash around. We have spent weeks on end indoors, protecting ourselves from the frigid cold, and now it’s time for us to get out there and enjoy the wonderful weather.
With all the activities we have planned under the sun, our skin can take quite a beating, and we might look worse for wear by the day’s end. If you want that sunny glow, here are some tips on keeping your skin hydrated in the summer heat.
Mist Your Face
When you are out and about during the summer, moisturizing your face is one of the best ways to keep your skin hydrated. However, you can’t just reapply your moisturizer at a moment’s notice—you could have makeup on, or your hands may not be super clean. Carrying a facial mist is the remedy to your problems. It’s easy to apply and won’t mess up your makeup. Aim for a mist with no added scents as the alcohol from the fragrance can dry out your skin.
Drink More Water
During the summer, you sweat more, which means you lose fluids faster, and you have to rehydrate. For many of us, it is quite easy to forget to drink water when you are outside all day having fun. However, as temperatures rise, dehydration becomes much more common, making it vital for you to stay hydrated. Always keep a bottle of water with you and take a sip at least every hour.
So many things can dehydrate your skin in the summer: a chlorinated pool, salt water, heat, and the sun. If you notice these effects on your skin, you may need something a little stronger. Consider treating yourself to a HydraFacial. HydraFacials are one of the best facial skin treatments for the summer as they provide superior hydration. You will greatly benefit from this as your esthetician can closely examine your skin and tweak your facial to adjust to your specific needs.
