Despite the scorching heat, summer is known as the “fun” season. School halts for a few months and families take time to have trips. It’s a wonderful time to explore and enjoy nature at its best. With the scorching heat and the extreme UV rays of the sun though, every family member needs some expert advice on how to stay protected and cool. Lucky for you, this article discusses just that. So before you go on your summer beach outing read on and find out the experts’ summer skin secrets!
SLATHER ON SUNSCREEN
If you have been planning for a beach vacation, plan ahead for your skin too! It is advised to preload sunscreen onto your skin. This is done a week or two before your expected beach adventure. Wear sunscreen on your body every night a week or two before your trip to help the sunscreen build up on your skin, making it less likely for skin to burn.
THE SIMPLER THE BETTER
Simple is easy and effective. The less you have to do, the more you’ll probably be able to help your skin out. Read the labels, learn its instructions, and be able to enjoy the sun without getting burned. Make sure you get high quality sunscreens that do not have difficult instructions that go with it. This goes the same with sunscreen for your kids. Teach them how to apply their own sunscreen, the simpler the instructions are, the better.
GO BIG TIME AT THE BEACH
Using big protective items at the beach is always a good idea. Big hats, big sunglasses, beach towels and big umbrellas will help you to enjoy the beach and protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Don’t forget to go big time on your drinks as well. The heat from the sun will make you perspire and dehydrated faster than normal. So get that large bottle of H20 and don’t forget that bucket of ice!
TREAT YOUR BURNS
You might not feel it right away, but when you start to notice it, treat it! The first thing you need to do is to get out of the sun. Now look at how badly you got sunburned. This will probably show after 1-2 hours. Nevertheless, a good cool skim milk soak will help. Use a clean towel and soak that into cool skim milk. Apply on affected area/s for about 10 minutes. This will help you relieve the pain and heal.
PEEL AND HEAL
Your skin needs all the moisturizer it can get during this dry season. Use effective and easy to use products like argan oil. Argan oil works just like lotion does by seeping easily through the skin. It is non-greasy and it is non-sticky. Unlike regular lotions though, argan oil is extremely rich in vitamin E and antioxidants – very important properties to help moisturize the skin. Using argan oil daily will help your skin remain smooth and beautiful all throughout summer!
These simple expert tips will help you and your family enjoy summer without burning your skin. Enjoy summer but protect your skin!
