Summer is in full swing, days are longer, and hopefully, you’re spending more time outside enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Being outdoors is so good for our mental health and physical wellbeing, and for many (including me), any time spent near water calms anxiety almost instantly. But, as a fair-skinned redhead, protecting my skin from the sun is SO important. No matter your sun sensitivity, finding a good skincare routine to keep your skin glowy in the summer months is key to putting YOUR best face forward.
Favorite Tips for Summer Skin Care
- Use sunscreen. And reapply every 2 hours! A Facial SPF using zinc oxide will sit on top of the skin (rather than soaking in) and reflect the sun’s rays to protect you.
- Wear protective clothing & accessories. Sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and a cute coverup always fit in your beach bag!
- Drink lots of water. Staying hydrated year-round is essential, but it’s vital during the summer months, so sip, sip away!
- Give your skin a boost of antioxidants. Ingredients like Vitamin C, Aloe Leaf Juice, Ferulic Acid, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Cranberry Oil, and Neem Seed Oil offer antioxidant support to help nourish, protect, and hydrate skin.
