What Summer Means for Your Skin

How do you determine the right skin care regiment for you? With hundreds of cosmetics and treatments available, figuring out which ones are right for you might seem overwhelming.


Generally, it all comes down to your skin type and lifestyle, but we also have to take into account the seasons. Just like summer means it’s time to make a change in our wardrobe, it signals a time to change up our skincare routine.



Summer Skin Care

Did you know that your skin ages faster during the summer? Most of us are pretty familiar with sunburns (and how to avoid them.) But not everyone knows about the other major challenge that comes with the heat—clogged pores.


Hot weather stimulates the sweat and sebum glands, which may cause clogged pores and lead to outbreaks of acne. Those who have naturally oily skin have to take special care during this time to prevent these outbreaks.


Avoid using heavy, oil based creams and make sure you clean your skin thoroughly at least twice a week. An ultrasonic skin spatula or skin scrubber makes an excellent tool for removing dirt and oils that accumulate in the pores, preventing those pesky summertime outbreaks.





You’ll also want to avoid microdermabrasion or chemical peel treatments during the summer months. A great alternative is the skin scrubber, which on top of cleaning your pores will also hydrate your skin (it is used with water) — perfect if you live someplace with hot, dry summers.


Of course, we can’t forget about UV radiation. Make sure to apply sunscreen before going outdoors to prevent damage to the skin from harmful UV rays.


If you’re looking for a more high-tech solution,or happen to already own one, the Red Light skin care tool will also protect your skin from UV light. Regular use and application of the Red Light treatment before sun exposure will actually reduce your chances of getting sunburn. It provides 100% natural protection equal to SPF-15—a great option for those of us who can’t stand that oily, sticky feel of sunscreen.



Things to Remember


Skincare habits have to be thorough and regular. Think of it as maintaining your house—you wouldn’t just clean one part of it, or vacuum the rug without bothering to lift it up and clean out the dust underneath. In an ideal world, anyways.


Your skincare regiment is no different. Getting those fantastic rejuvenation results takes commitment and dedication. And just like anything else having to do with health, your skincare regiment will be most effective if you supply your body with all the necessary nutrients and vitamins.
