In the heat of…
There is no denying we are in the thick of it. Summer is here and our thoughts turn to how to stay cool, look fresh, and protect our delicate epidermis.
Tips for Summer Skin:
• We know to wear sunscreen all year long, but our lips need protecting too! Wear a lip balm with at least SPF 15.
• Take short showers to make sure not to wash off your natural oils to protect your skin from the harsh sun.
• Moisturize lightly to allow your skin to breathe and prevent clogged pores.
• Drink plenty of water!
Do’s and Don’ts:
• There’s a reason watermelon is associated with summer. Stock up to re-hydrate your skin with it’s antioxidant properties.
• Tomatoes replenish electrons and are anti-carcinogenic. They are best when eaten cold and sliced.
• Drink iced green tea to help stay cool and promote healthy skin.
• When the heat is particularly intense, stay away from high protein foods like red meats which warm the body from the inside out.
• Caffeine will dehydrate, so stay clear of soda, coffee and other beverages that are loaded up with caffeine.
• Munch on berries, blue, straw, rasp, black. They’re rich in antioxidants that will help your skin fight off any of the sun’s negative effects.
