Summer is about staying cool which means baring more skin. But in order to look good baring that skin, you need to take some time to ready your skin and reverse the signs of neglect you showed your skin during fall and winter. Here are some helpful tips to get your skin summer ready!
1. It's so very important to exfoliate your skin. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don't get rid of them, they'll just set on your skin making you look dull and dry. This can be done with a body scrubber or a sugar scrub.
2. If you shave, use a good razor and a good shaving cream. When picking out a shaving cream, don't choose a men's cream; a shaving lotion is much better for your skin as it will hydrate and help ward off nicks and cuts. If you want to shave but don’t have any shaving cream you can use your conditioner for a moisturizing shaving cream.
3. Preserve your own natural oils by lowering the water temperature when you shower or bath and use a good moisturizer immediately afterwards.
4. Find a daytime facial moisturizer that contains sunblock to protects the delicate skin on your face. Over exposure due to prolonged time spent in direct summer sun can cause sun burn and contribute to premature aging of the skin.
Summer is on the way so before you pull out those shorts, tank tops, swimwear, skirts and sundresses…get that skin summer ready!8)
