Proper skincare is especially important in the summer thanks to the humidity, heat, chlorine and the strong Sun. Here are the most common summer skincare mistakes we see and tips on how to avoid them.
1. Not Wearing Sunscreen & Not Reapplying
No seriously we aren’t kidding.There are still people who don’t wear sunscreen.JUST PUT IT ON!Skin protection is key since UV radiation causes skin cancer and signs of premature again.It should be worn every single day, all year round.It also should be reapplied every 60 to 90 minutes while you are in the sun.
2. Exfoliating, Waxing & Shaving
By exfoliating in the morning, you are losing the layer of dead skin cells that act as a layer of protection from UV rays.You should exfoliate at night.With shaving and waxing, it’s best to give yourself 24 to 48 hours.Heading into the sun too soon after these can lead to some serious skin irritation form the sun, sunscreen and sand.
3. Not Switching Out Your Cleanser
Using the same cleanser during the summer as in the winter probably isn’t doing you can favors. In the summer you need to exfoliate more frequently especially if getting sun exposure and spending time outdoors.
Our final advice is do make sure to SPF your lips and never forget to moisturize!
