This quick blog post will help you understand the importance of summer skincare.
Summer Skin Care Tips from the San Francisco Facelift Experts
Summer is here, and that means one thing: sun. Sun, however, can be very very damaging to skin. So the number one thing you can do to help your skin is to protect it from too much sun. Before you go out, be sure to put on sunscreen, and if possible, use a daily sunscreen of SPF 30 or more; check for both UVA and UVB protection. Even better, wear a hat or other means of protecting your face from the sun without using chemicals, or if you tend to have sensitive skin, use sun blockers.
Stay hydrated! Sun (and wind) can dry you out, so staying hydrated is incredibly important to having good-looking skin. Drink plenty of water, and use a daily moisturizer.
Exfoliate (within reason). Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to make your skin look healthier. However, don’t overdo this; consult with your skin care professional.
Reapply sunscreen. It’s not enough to just put it on once; if you are out and about, say sailing on the San Francisco Bay, you’ll need to reapply. Remember that sun damage creeps up on you – you can feel fine and yet be damaging your sun. Your skin is like an elephant: it never forgets.
Protect your lips. We sometimes forget about the lips, yet they – too – can be impacted by the summer skin. Use a lip balm or lipstick that contains a sunscreen for protection and a moisturizer, too.
