Preparing Your Skin for Spring and Summer

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and having a well-thought-out skin care routine is important. Taking care of your skin on a regular basis is well worth the time and effort. A solid routine should be applicable to all seasons and all climates. Following are some of the tips to take care of your skin during spring and summer seasons.

Keep your skin hydrated:
It is as plain as that when it comes to skin care in the spring and summer. Use hyaluronic acid-based products and get out in the fresh air on a daily basis. In the warm seasons, it provides the ideal environment for a safe and radiantly beautiful complexion. Treat yourself to a hyaluronic mask if you have especially dry patches. Apply it overnight to give your skin the time to absorb the moisture it needs. Do not be afraid to use a lot of it in this situation because your skin absorbs just as much moisture as the skin needs.

Cut down the tub-time:
Many of us shower more than once a day during the summer due to workouts, beach days, and plain old summer sweat. Over-showering, or showering in hot water can dry out your skin, causing inflammation and even eczema in the summer. Take bath once a day with normal to cool water.

Diet matters:
Diet is still the most important thing you do to yourself. What goes inside, shines outside. You can be using the best and most expensive skin care products but if your diet includes junk food and alcohol or if you smoke regularly, it will definitely affect your skin and complexion. Consuming antioxidant-rich foods like fruits and vegetables, as well as healthy fats from fish and nuts, as a part of your diet benefits the whole epidermis.

Exfoliation can do wonders do your skin as it removes the dead skin cells and makes room for the new and healthier skin cells. You may just use a loofah in the shower or as part of your day and night skin care routine to gently exfoliate your entire body. Exfoliation leads to rejuvenation and improvement in the skin.

Regular exfoliation especially of the facial area also helps to prevent the onset of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a younger appearance. Furthermore, by using sonic skin care tool such as the Glow Sonic® Magni Bead™ Facial Cleansing Brush, you get the benefits of deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation at the same time.

While making the choice of an exfoliating skincare product for the face and body, go for the one with smaller granules because its comparatively gentler on the skin.

Remember if you are using The Glow Sonic® Device to cleanse your skin we suggest using cleansers that are NOT silicone, exfoliant beaded or clay based as these cleansers may affect the effectiveness of the Glow Sonic® graduated silicone bristles. Any other cleanser such as a face soap or other type of liquid cleanser is fine to use.

When the long winter finally ends and we venture outside to enjoy the first rays of sunshine, it is also the time to prepare our skin for spring and summer. Many that do not use sufficient sun protection when it comes to skincare in the spring or summer are doing damage to their skin. So, the top rule for the warm weather is to always wear sun-protecting creams/lotions.

Ultraviolet rays can age the skin prematurely, so whatever your skin colouring, sun protection is a must.
