3 easy ways to keep skin great in summer

With summer here, it is important to pay close attention on how to keep your skin healthy and clear in the warmer months. Luckily, we have broken down summer skin care into three simple tricks — click each one below to read more about how to stay looking fresh this summer.

Stay Hydrated

In the summer with the sun out, you sweat. Sometimes, you sweat a lot. The hotter months make it much easier to lose hydration from your skin, which is why drinking water is one of the most important ways to keep your skin (and your whole body) looking and feeling good. We have all heard it a hundred times, but drinking water is one of the best ways to help improve your skin. Helping to keep moisture in your skin can help dehydrated skin stop looking wrinkly and dry. Water also flushes out toxins in the skin, which can help to reduce acne.  Besides only helping your skin, drinking plenty of water throughout the day will help your entire body work and feel better.

Moisturize
After flushing your body with water, it is important to make sure your skin can maintain it through moisturizing. Moisturizer doesn’t inherently hydrate the skin on its own, but it provides a very important barrier to help keep hydration locked into the skin. Lush has some incredible moisturizers, ones that are created specifically for delicate skin, as does Boots and Sephora. For some people, over moisturizing can lead to oily skin, so make sure to work out how often you should moisturize, whether it is once or twice per day or every other day.
Wear Sunscreen

Turns out, mom was always right — not that we ever doubted her. Spending time in the sun means being exposed to UV rays from the sun, which contribute to more than sunburns. Being exposed to the sun for too long can increase the risk of deadly skin cancers, such as melanoma. Luckily, it is easy to help reduce the risk of these harmful rays — by using sunscreen. Sunscreen helps to not only maintain youthful-looking skin, it helps to block the harmful rays, letting you enjoy time out in the sun without the worry of skin damage. And don’t skip because it’s cloudy — harmful rays will still reach you. We love this sunscreen from Neutrogena, which provides a weightless feel and doesn’t leave you with greasy skin. Most moisturizers now have SPF built in to them as well, making it easy to keep up on staying protected.
