Some of us work hard to keep summer skin at the top of its game. During the summer months, you have to work a little harder. That’s why we’ve provided some easy tips to keep your skin healthy and clear!
- Makeup After Perspiration
Ditch the makeup during a workout or exercise. Makeup clogs pores, especially when we perspire, so keep your face fresh and clean until after you’ve pumped iron!
- Wash Your Face
So simple, right? Washing off your beauty products is so important for daily skin care, but it’s even more important during the summer. We use sunscreen more often and sweat more frequently, so washing your face is key to avoiding breakouts. If you find yourself wiped out by the end of the day and can’t bring yourself to wash your face (been there!), then invest in quality cleanser moisturizers before sleep. We will point you in the right direction!
- Skip Sugar
We aren’t saying it’s easy, but if you’re consuming a significant amount of sugar and noticing skin issues, there may definitely be a correlation. Unfortunately, sugar is bad for us in all ways, including skin health. Often times, blemishes are a telltale sign of an unhealthy diet. Don’t believe us? Cut out the sugar for at least two weeks and see what happens!
- Drink Water
Another no brainer. But you’d be surprised how much more water your body (and skin!) requires when you’re perspiring throughout the day. Here’s a good rule of thumb to begin with. On a regular day, you should be consuming half your body weight in water. The more you perspire throughout the day, the more water you should consume. And we’re talking good old, plain water! Sweetened water, Gatorade and drinks high in sugar are not created equal. If you aren’t the water drinking type, consider adding lemon or fruits in your water.
- Use a Quality Toner
We love toner, yes we do! We love toner, how about you? Toner is one of the most underrated skin care products out there. It’s perfect for tightening and cleaning pores, and it’s a great refresher for skin. You will avoid blemishes by using a toner daily. If you don’t know where to begin when shopping for toner, stop in and we will help you! Have you tried our PCA hydrating toner yet?
- Wash Your Pillowcases
People often forget about the power of bacteria; or lack thereof. Pillowcases become soiled with bacteria quickly, so we recommend changing them often. If you’re sweating at night, you want to change them more often than that.
