Proper Skincare for Being Outdoors

With the warmer weather, more people find activities to do outdoors. Everyone wants to enjoy the nice sunny days and take advantage of being outside. However, the warmer months can cause a problem for your skin if you're not careful. The sun can create sunspots on your skin, and the heat of the day makes you sweat and clogs your pores. Adjust your daily routine to help combat the summer months!

Slather on the Sunscreen

No matter who you are, sunscreen is important for the protection of your skin. If you tan easily or fry under the sun's rays, you need to use sunscreen! Whether you choose makeup like CC cream with sunscreen or another foundation, this will help to protect and keep your complexion healthy. Additionally, you want to use a spray or lotion on the rest of your body as well. Even if you aren't planning on laying out in the sun, it can still burn or harm you if you don't have the proper protection. Being outside for extended periods of time means you need to slather on the sunscreen!

Wash Your Face More Often

some Being outside in the heat will cause you to sweat more, especially if you're exercising or doing physical activity. This can create build-up and clog your pores, as well as have the potential to develop rashes. To help avoid these things, make sure you are washing your face more consistently. If your normal routine consists of face wash in the mornings and at night, you need to incorporate it throughout the day as well if you are sweating. Don't let the sweat and dirt linger on your face for a long period of time, and this will help you avoid some skin issues.

Drink Water

Staying hydrated is healthy for your mind and body. Drinking water has many health benefits, including enhancing your complexion! If you drink enough water on a daily basis, this helps flush out toxins for healthier skin. If your skin is dehydrated this can lead to you looking more tired and create a dull, uneven complexion. Water increases blood flow in your body which makes your face 'glow' and evens out your tone!

Switch Up Your Moisturizer

Spring brings in warmer weather and you might have changed your routine already. However, make sure you are using a lightweight moisturizer during the hot summer months. Your skin needs to stay replenished, but it doesn't require the heavy moisturizing creams you might have used in the winter. Contrary to what most believe, moisturizing your skin regularly doesn't cause it to break out and collect oil. Instead, it complements the oil your body produces and helps your complexion even out.
