Summer Skin Care Tips

Summer Skin Care

Summer is one of the seasonal battles for maintaining good skin care! Summer may not have the harsh cold or winds of the winter, but it does have the pushing heat of the sun at its maximum strength during the summer months.To reduce or avoid the effects of the sun’s harmful rays, here are a few tips.

Using sunscreen product which has a SPF of 15 or above is essential for us all. Allowing yourself to bake in the midday sun, damages and prematurely ages skin as well as increasing the risk of skin cancer. Use a complete sun-block of factor 50 for children. Research indicates that one or more severe sunburns in childhood significantly increase the risk of developing skin cancer later in life.Check the expiry date on your sunscreen. Sunscreen without an expiry date should not be kept for any longer than 3 years. Always wear a hat in the sun, preferably with a wide brim which will protect your face.

Always wear sunglasses which block 100% of the sun’s UV rays.Most retail outlets sell sunglasses with a sticker showing the percentage of UV protection.These will protect your eyes and also the skin around them which is particularly thin. If you are wearing lightweight or lightly coloured fabrics use sunscreen under your clothing.Research has proven that the sun can penetrate lightweight and lighter coloured fabrics. And if you’re not worried about being too hot, wear darker, tightly woven fabrics as these are much more effective at blocking UV rays.

Drink plenty of water, hot weather increases the risk of dehydration which can be very dangerous if an extreme case. If you are undertaking any form of excersise or other physical activity, have a drink before you start and keep drinking throughout. In addition to the health risks of dehydration your skin will take a hammering if your body is lacking essential water.

The incidence of skin cancer is on the increase and it is believed that many deaths that occur can be prevented via early detection. By taking the time to examine your skin monthly, you will become familiar with what is normal for you and where any blemishes and moles are located.It is useful to note down the dates of self-exams.

Check the entirety of your body,including the feet,between the toes and the whole of your head:including your ears and scalp.Use a mirror for parts of your body that are hard to see and make sure that the room has good visibility or is well-lit.Whilst you are locking at each area, use your hands to feel over your skin.If you are concerned about anything that you find, regardless of how small and how “silly” you might feel, be sure to make an appointment with your Doctor and get yourself checked out.

Avoid morning mayhem with these easy to follow tips for looking your best.

1.Cleanse and moisture

There are a myriad of products and recommended cleansing routine available. But if you’re streched for time. Invest in a gentle cleansing bar or foaming cleanser, and indulge in an old-fashioned wash with warm water.

There are plenty of soaps and foaming cleansers formulated to be kinder to skin and respect your skin’s natural acidity.

This is a quick easy and less messy alternative to creams and lotions.They’re also easy to rinse off and final splash of cold water will bring colour to your cheeks,firm your skin and act as a refreshing wake-up. Message in your usual brand of moisturiser to hydrate and soften your skin.

2.Cheeks

A hint of colour on the cheeks gives your face a healthy glow first thing in the morning.

smile in the mirror and apply your blush to the apple of your cheek, sweeping it back towards the cartilage nub in your ear.

Applied too low blusher will make your face look wider.

3.Eyes 

Our eyes are the first thing that people notice about us,and this is certainly true first thing in the morning when we’re regaining wakefulness after a full night’s sleep.

Once you’ve washed and moisturised, a light coating of mascara on the upper lashes will open the eye up and make your look more awake.

There are great lengthening products on the market if you want to achieve a long,fuller lash look.

4.Lips 

In the morning, using a slightly damp toothbrush, very lightly scrub your lips to remove and dry flakes.This will also stimulate the circulation giving you a rosy,warm looking lips. Add a little lip salve to moisten your lips.

5.Hair 

For mid to long hair, if you’re pressed for time you can pull it back into a classy ponytail or with clips. Use a non-stick hairspray to a tame fly-away hair.

6.Scent 

To finish off, use a body spray or a little perfume. Something light and fresh, you don’t want to overpower  anyone!

7.Skin

It’s rare that we can get up,look at our skin and be completely happy with what we see in front of us. Most of us have something that we want to cover up or disguise, whether it be blemishes,spots,broken capillaries or dark circles. Rather than cover the whole of your face with foundation, just touch up any area of concern with a foundation that best suits your skin tone. If you’re in a particular rush, you could try mixing your moisturiser with your foundation-saving you having to put on two products. Either that or invest in a tinted moisturiser.
