Taking Care of Your Skin This Summer

Quote: “Glowing skin is always in”

Question: How can I take care of my skin this summer?

Fact: Daily sun protection helps to stop the oxidation that causes blackheads to look black.

      Summer is the perfect time to focus on your skin and give it a break from all the makeup. You can focus on getting a natural tan by skipping the bronzer. Your pores can get a breath of fresh air and you can focus on enhancing your skin without the foundation. 

For example, wear makeup just the weekends or special occasions. During the week day, let your face breathe pamper by using face masks, creams, and oils. These are a few products you can use to keep your skin feeling fresh.

Face Wash

    Try Aveeno’s Positively radiant skin brightening daily scrub. This face wash leaves your skin feeling hydrated, fresh, and clean. It includes exfoliating granules which remove impurities from the skin. It also leaves the skin feeling softer and brighter, perfect for the warm weather.

Moisturizer

   A favorite is the Cetaphil daily moisturizer. It's made for all skin types and includes sunscreen. This moisturizer is lightweight, which does not leave your skin feeling oily. Instead it leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. 

Oil

   The Body Shop’s tea tree oil is perfect for getting rid of those stubborn blemishes. It helps to even skin tone and hydrate as well.

Masks

    Freeman’s avocado and oatmeal clay mask is great for nourishing your skin. It really gets in your pores to remove unwanted dirt. After using this mask, your skin is left feeling radiant.

Other

   ZO skin health’s exfoliating polish is excellent when you want to go an extra step to keep your skin feeling fresh. This polish gets rid of dead skin while adding a refreshing feeling for your skin.

   For those stubborn blemishes, try Mary Kay’s clearproof acne treatment gel. Apply a pea size amount to the blemish and the gel works to remove and decrease it.  

    Aveeno also has a night cream which benefits your skin in many ways. It helps with tone, dullness, dark spots, texture, and blotchiness. This cream overall leaves your skin feeling ready for the day.
