Portrait of beautiful woman

The summer season calls for hours and hours outdoors enjoying the warm sun, but it also means a lot of damage towards your delicate skin.  It’s always important to know how to keep your glowing skin healthy and protected, especially from the heated summer sun.  So stop hiding and get out there and enjoy the weather with these skincare tips on maintaining healthier looking skin this summer!

1. Wear Sunscreen

Of course, one of the most important summer staple essentials is sunscreen.  To prevent and protect your skin from burning, apply this super lightweight, waterproof and non-greasy sunscreen lotion 30 minutes before going into the sun.  If you’re going to be outdoors for a long period of time, don’t forget to reapply throughout the day to keep your skin super protected from damaging UV rays.

2. Stay Hydrated!


Your body loses a lot of moisture in the summer because of perspiration, so keeping it hydrated with water is super important!  Drinking a lot of H2O also leads to more hydrated and moisturized skin that’s healthy and renewed.

3. Moisturize

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!  Your skin can get really dry and damaged from all the long hours in the sun, so make sure you are doing your skin some good and moisturizing with your favourite delicate cream or lotion.  This Clinique moisturizing lotion says it is lightweight and fast absorbing to keep your skin silky smooth and hydrated so you can keep shining radiantly!

4. Cleanse and Tone

You’re outdoors and sweating from the heat all day, making it super critical to completely cleanse and wash your face at the end of the day to keep it clear of dirt, sweat and oils that can build up.  You want to keep your skin clean and clear to prevent breakouts and after a good wash, use a toner to keep your pores closed and skin cool.

5. Exfoliate

Exfoliating does wonders by removing dead skin cells and overall illuminating and brightening your skin.  By using a body scrub or facial exfoliator, you can get healthier and fresher looking skin that’s smooth, even and bright, ready for all those summer beach days!
