Looking After Your Skin in Summer: 5 Tips for That Perfect Summer Glow

Summer is here – and with it, summer vacations, endless beach days, parties, and meet-ups with friends and family. But while the season might be among the most exciting ones, sun exposure, stress, and the little extra indulging can truly take a toll on your skin. 

So, how can you keep that wonderful summer glow and maintain your skin healthy even while traveling or spending the day at the beach?

Here are some easy tips to follow to avoid breakouts and look after your skin’s health during your next summer adventure!

Looking After Your Skin in Summer

Focus on a Healthy Diet

While research is still in its infancy, studies have proved the existence and importance of the gut-skin axis. This connection might play a part in your skin health and the likelihood to experience breakouts and skin conditions like eczema and acne. 

There is still a lot to be discovered about the gut-skin axis, and indications on what foods and ingredients might affect this balance are still vague. However, following a healthy diet that focuses on fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds can help you maintain balance. 

What’s more, ingredients like walnuts, chia seeds, linseeds, and fermented foods can protect healthy bacteria while also strengthening the immune system. 

Keep Your Skin Moisturized

Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized is essential – especially during the hottest months of the year. Indeed, during summer, increased sweating, higher temperature, and greater exposure to pollutants can cause your skin to feel dry and unhealthy. 

Using a light moisturizer and hydration routine can help you fight the effects of these elements and keep your skin healthy. 

Keep Your Skin Protected With Sunscreen

The prevalence of skin cancer (including melanoma and non-melanoma cancer) has been significantly increasing over the past decades, reaching record-breaking heights. And, as temperatures and UV exposure continue to increase, these levels are only bound to rise. 

That is why it is essential to find a high-quality sunscreen that can protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays

Speak to a Specialized Dermatologist

While the tips above are general guidelines to follow to improve your skin health during the summer months, not all skin conditions can be addressed without having specialized knowledge. 

For example, if you have been dealing with a chronic skin condition, you should not think twice about consulting a dermatologist who specializes in eczema or acne treatment. Taking this step might be your best option to regain your skin health and boost your self-confidence. 

Opt for a More Natural Look

Always wanted to try a more natural look? Summer is the perfect season for it! During the hottest months of the year, consider ditching heavy foundations, creams, and concealers. Opting for a natural look will help your skin breathe and prevent your pores from getting clogged. 

What’s more, you can still choose light moisturizing creams and cooling face masks to boost the natural beauty and appeal of your skin. Struggling with dark circles and sagging skin? You don’t need makeup to cover it up – try a more natural alternative like face yoga!
