The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and spring will say farewell before you know it–summer is almost here. While this season gets a lot of excitement, from the best of fruits to a beachy vacation, this warm weather season isn’t exactly without its downsides. While in winters, skin tends to dry, in summers, humidity increases, and your skin secretes excessive natural oil, which can lead to greasy skin and blocked pores. Sunburn, prickly heat, excessive tanning are other problems that can cause long-term skin damage.
That’s why we recommend the following 5 summer skincare tips that you should start following immediately!
- Moisturize Daily
A good moisturizer is like the elixir of life for your skin. Because of the high heat and humidity levels, it’s better to choose one with a non-greasy formula. It’s an added advantage if your moisturizer also contains SPF, along with antioxidants like vitamins A and C. The ideal time to moisturize is right after you bathe. We’d recommend that you pick between our GNC Aloe Vera Moisturizing Cream and our GNC Vitamin C Moisturizing Cream.
- Sunscreen Is Your Best Friend
Do not shy away from sunscreen. Use generous amounts of sunscreen before stepping out of your house every time. Make sure that it contains SPF. SPF 30 or higher is always recommended. We tend to think that we need to apply sunscreen only once when we leave our homes, but sunscreen doesn’t last long. So always make sure that you carry it with you and that you keep applying it once every 1.5 to 2 hours when you’re out in the Sun.
- Don’t Forget To Exfoliate
A face scrub will do wonders for your skin. Make sure you exfoliate at least twice a week. This will get rid of any excess oil and dirt from under your skin. Don’t forget to exfoliate your neck, and remember to use a scrub that is best suited for your skin type.
- Water Is Your Second Best Friend
Consistent external and internal hydration is key during the summer. Make sure you drink loads of water throughout the day. Your minimum daily target should be 3 liters or more. Apart from drinking water, consuming fruits like watermelons or drinking coconut water help in staying hydrated. Also add Our luster & lūm® Collagen Peptides – Powder to the water twice a day. It supports beautiful Hair, Skin & Nails and will definitely help keep your skin. healthy.
- Wear Breezy And Breathable Fabrics
Cotton and linen should become your go-to fabrics during the summer. Light and loose clothing will allow your skin to breathe and make you feel at ease instantly.
