Healthy Summer Skin Care Tips

As we move into summer, you may find your skin is not responding as well to the skincare routine you've been using all winter. Along with regular facial appointments, there are some tips and tricks to keep your skin beautiful and healthy all summer long, continue reading to learn more!

During the hot and humid summer months, hydration is so important for skin health! When you're spending time outside in the sun, try to drink around 64oz of water per day. Being properly hydrated not only helps keep skin clear, but it can also help heal sunburns more quickly.

Protecting our skin from the sun is one of the best ways to keep our skin youthful and healthy. Overexposure to the sun causes collagen to breakdown and increases our risk for skin disorders. Sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30 are a great way to reduce any risks, as well as wearing hats and simply trying to stay in the shade when possible.

Even though it is far more humid than it is during the winter, our skin still needs to be moisturized. Swap out heavy moisturizers for lightweight, dual-purpose formulas that also include sun protection!

Antioxidants are a great addition to skincare at any time of year, but especially during the summer months! Applying a Vitamin C serum in washing and moisturizing can help reduce the appearance of discoloration and fine line, and it can help increase collagen production!

Summers are always hectic but don't skip out on professional skincare. Regular, light exfoliation can help keep pores clear of dirt and oil that often build up in a humid environment. Let our professional staff exfoliate and refresh your skin with a Tulsara facial customized for your unique skin needs!
