Your Skin and The Sun

Wow! Again with the long stretch, which I deeply apologize for guys. Things have just been super crazy but I'm still alive!

Now that we're officially in the peak of summer (and humidity here in NY) there are some important must knows for ensuring your skin is looking its best.

1) SUN PROTECTION
This skin essential tip is a must for all seasons, especially in the summer months. During the summer, the sun is out for longer periods of time and is at its strongest, hence the warmer weather. We inevitably spend more time outdoors (especially after our harsh East coast winters) because the weather is too nice to pass up, right? Amidst all of the fun in the sun, make a point to apply enough sunscreen to protect your skin. This will help prevent aging skin, uneven skin tone, and even skin cancer. Be sure that the sunscreen you opt for has protection from both UVA and UVB rays.

2)  HYDRATION
When heat is applied to something, it dries out. This is the same with your skin. You often hear that you need to hydrate your skin during the colder months, but it's just as important during the summer months as well! The reason being is that you're literally baking outside in the sun; yup, just like a cookie. Opt for a lighter moisturizer during your morning routine and a sleeping mask at night to give your skin an extra dose of moisture while you sleep.

3)  EXFOLIATE
Sweat and oil are the biggest skin demons during the warmer months. Although we tend to lighten up the load on our faces with more natural looking makeup, that doesn't stop the oil and sweat from clogging up your pores. The best way to combat this is with a weekly exfoliate. Do this in-between washing and toning your face at most once or twice a week depending on your skin type. Trust me, you'll see the difference after just one go around.
