  • Common Summer Skincare Mistakes

    Summer sun is here, and it can feel like a constant battle to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. During the summer months, skin is exposed to a lot more irritants than during the rest of the year and it’s important to know how to deal with them properly.

    Here are a few common summertime skincare mistakes, and some quick fixes:

    Applying sunscreen incorrectly – Sun exposure takes its toll on your skin, so sun protection is serious business. While many believe that applying sunscreen once a day is sufficient, in reality most sunscreens should be reapplied every two hours, or every hour if you are swimming or sweating. To keep your skin safe from damaging effects of the sun, apply sunscreen generously to exposed areas at least 30 minutes prior to heading out into the sun. Just as you should wash off any makeup before going to bed, you should remove sunscreen before going to sleep, so be sure to cleanse thoroughly after a day in the sun.

    Applying make-up with low SPF protection – The skin on your face is more sensitive to the sun than the rest of your body, so it requires a little more attention. While numerous beauty products contain some UV protection, it may not be enough to keep your face safe from the sun’s powerful rays. Try applying sunscreen or primer containing SPF 30 or higher to your face before putting on make-up to prevent sunburns, dry skin, and wrinkles.

    Unhealthy foods – Summer time living may be easy, but if you’re not careful, summer’s fattening foods can really damage skin. Skip the processed foods and opt for more natural alternatives such as summer fruits and fresh greens to fill your body with vitamins and nutrients.

    Overlooking foot health – As temperatures rise, you may find yourself spending a lot more time in flip-flops and sandals. Exposing your feet to the hot summer air can leave your heels cracked and dry. Give your feet the attention and care they need by applying lotion to keep them soft and moisturized and exfoliating rough heels with a pumice stone to remove dead skin. Finish off your foot treatment with a pedicure, and then show it off in your favorite open toed sandals!

    Scratching mosquito bites – Summer is a time to enjoy the outdoors, but mosquito bites are unfortunately often a package deal. While our first instinct is to scratch the itch, breaking the skin can lead to infection and increased discomfort. Instead, try an antihistamine cream or calamine lotion to help the itch and swelling go down.

    Fall comes with its own skin care concerns, so stay tuned for a future blog post on how to re-work your routine to fit your skin’s changing needs.
