1. Don’t skip the moisturizer. You might be less dry during the summer, but don’t banish the moisturizer altogether.
2. Slather on the sunscreen. Choose a product that blocks both ultraviolet A & B and has a minimum SPF of 15.
3. Bring on the balm. Lips are susceptible to skin care too, so be sure to protect them with a balm with an SPF of 15.
4. Switch to summer make-up. Trade your liquid foundation for a light, mineral-based powder or tinted moisturizer, and skip the blush in lieu of bronzer.
5. Wear sun-protective clothing. Opt for a long-sleeve shirt, wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses at least for part of the day.
6. Go faux. Skip the suntan altogether and try a spray-tan, airbrushing or a self-tanner.
7. Exfoliate regularly. Sun, sand, sweat, and sunscreen only increase the amount of dead skin cells that build up on your face & body.
8. Practice smart shaving. More frequent shaving sessions dry out and irritate the skin. Replace your razor blade often, shave in the shower, use a moisturizing gel or cream, and always follow with a moisturizer. Or try waxing! – it leaves the skin silky soft.
9. Head off heat rash. Keep cool, stay dry, and avoid clothes that irritate or rub on your skin.
10. Prevent rosacea. Mist yourself with a spray bottle, take plenty of cold showers, and drink lots of cold water to ward of the skin condition.
