The heat and the humidity are going to affect your skin massively, and the best way to combat that change is with suitable skincare. Just like changing how you dress in the heat, you need to change how you take care of your skin with sunscreen, masks and a lot of lip balm!
SPF and UV protection will become your best friend in the warmer months. It protects your skin from harmful rays of the sun, making sure you don’t burn and helping to prevent skin cancer. Don’t just apply it first thing in the morning though, take it with you and re-apply regularly if you’re out all day. Did you know you can get sunscreen wipes? They are great to carry for when you are out and about, easy to apply and for those hard to reach areas like your back.
When it is hot and humid in the summer months, your skin will need refreshing regularly. Try a refreshing or moisturizing facial sheet mask. They will leave your skin feeling moisturized, cool and ready for anything! You can also get after-sun masks and masks specifically for problem areas, such as under eyes, T-zone and lips.
Cooling wipes are brilliant when the summer sun gets too hot. Carry a pack with you and when you’re feeling sweaty and bothered, you can give your face, arms and neck a quick wipe over. Remember if you wipe your face, you’ll need to re-apply sunscreen to prevent burning.
Once you have your skin looking and feeling fresh for the summer, you may want to consider swapping your regular makeup for waterproof makeup. Little changes like waterproof mascara and even waterproof concealer can help your makeup last longer in the heat. Tip: If you don’t want to swap your foundation to a waterproof one, try setting it with a mattifying powder to help it stay in place.
Finally finish off your beauty routine with a lip balm. In the summer you’ll be in the pool, by the beach and enjoying yourself outdoor. However chlorine and sand can dry your lips out, you can keep them hydrated with lip balm. You can even get lip balm with SPF to stop your lips from burning for the summer months.
Enjoy your glowing summer skin whilst having a great time this summer. Celebrate Sunscreen Day, 27th May 2016, in style by making sure you protect your skin at all time!
