10 tips to Healthier Summer Skin

1- Exfoliate your skin to unveil clearer, fresh skin – Exfoliation removes dead skin and debris and improves how other products get absorbed into the skin. You should exfoliate your face and body routinely without overdoing it. Scrubs are great before the shower, before self-tanners, or just at the end of the day to relax and kick your skin into repair mode.

2- Drink more water – higher temperatures and more time outdoors can lead to dehydration which is not good for the skin or body. Remember to drink 64 ounces of water daily!

3- Protect your skin – Apply SPF to your face and body (yes, even in cloudy days), wear a wide brim hat, wear protective SPF clothing and don’t forget to reapply it. Also, don’t skimp on it, you need to cover your skin with it. Face and body! The great news is that there are lots of amazing sophisticated formulations to choose from. Even a great powder sunscreen that can be applied over makeup!
