The summer is knocking on our doors louder and louder, and soon we will have to expose our healthy skin to the highly damaging sunbeams that cause wrinkles and acne. And before enjoying beautiful sunny days, we first need to protect our skin. So here are 5 tips to help you keep healthy, beautiful and refreshing skin.
1. Healthy Diet for a Healthy Skin
A well balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein is the foundation of a healthy skin. And during summer, your skin really needs all the help it can get. So make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, fish, almonds, oysters and soy. They all contain the right nutrients for our skin and boost the production of collagen.
All dermatologists agree on one thing – you must protect your skin using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. The UV rays in sunlight are the number one cause of wrinkles, but they can even cause sunburns and skin cancer. Therefore, you should avoid going out from 11 AM to 3 PM, use umbrella, wear sunglasses, and apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposing your healthy skin to sunbeams.
We all know that staying hydrated is important for our overall health, especially during summer when fluid loss increases with temperature, increased perspiration and humidity. However, did you know that water is essential for our skin as well? Drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day will not only help our body to function properly, but will also protect our skin from becoming dry.
Hot sunrays can take away the moisture from our skin, causing it to become dry and susceptible to irritations. Therefore, applying moisurisers within 5 minutes of showering is a must for everyone who desires a sun kissed glow. Also, make sure to moisturise your bikini line and armpits after shaving to avoid irritation and dry skin.
During summer it’s important to choose mineral makeup with a light powder base that won’t sweat off easily. Look for cheap mineral bases with a built-in SPF, as the expensive ones have the same effect. Also, always wear lip balm that contains at least 15 SPF.
The above tips will protect and help maintain the freshness of your healthy skin when it needs your help the most. Therefore, we suggest using Deluxe Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid to allow your skin to get all vitamins and minerals. Also, never underestimate the power of sunbeams and the importance of proper diet and hydration. Prevention is better than cure, so keep your skin protected and charge your batteries during beautiful sunny days.
