Get your glow back with post-summer skincare

Make me Glow, Glow Glow

Summer is our favorite time of the year for getting the gorgeous tan and enjoying the beach waves. However, while we enjoy the warm sun-rays, our skin is suffering, getting dry and damaged. UV rays are becoming more harmful for the skin, and in spite of all the sunscreens and protection that we apply, our skin still needs a post-summer treatment in order to restore the previous glow and elasticity.

Facial Appointment

Once you are all done with the beach, swimming pool and tanning, it’s time to relieve the skin from the sun exposure. Call your cosmetic salon and schedule a facial appointment as soon as possible. Aside from being exposed to the sun, your skin has also suffered a sea salt and/or swimming pool chlorine impact. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and mud masks will have a soothing effect on your skin, leaving it refreshed and energized.

Hydration

Hydration of the body is beneficial for both the organism and the skin. Considering the skin is the largest organ of the human body, it requires special attention. Drinking six to eight glasses of water everyday will help you maintain both lean figure and flawless skin. If your skin is dry and dull, it means that your body craves water. As we’ve mentioned before, the UV rays will dry the skin very much, so it needs to be extra hydrated in the summer months, and especially after the vacation.

Exfoliate

Restore the glow of your skin by removing the dead cells from your face and exfoliate consistently. Whitening facial foam and numerous exfoliating lotions and scrubs will do wonders for the face after the tanning. All the products with Pro-Vitamin B3 will lighten the skin and all the dark spots, which will give you flawless skin as a result. Depending how sensitive your skin is, try to use facial scrubs 2-4 times a week, but only during this period. Later you can continue with the usual routine.

Moisturize

Moisturizing lotions, creams and oils are the essential parts of a good skin care routine. During the winter and summer months, skin requires more detailed care, so all the skin care products should be used more frequently. Furthermore, some products that we use in spring or fall months should be replaced with more effective ones. Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils found in Medik8 products will perfectly hydrate dry skin and help increase its elasticity and density, which will make it glow again. Medik8 products will do wonders for the skin that’s been affected by the UV rays, improve the radiance and brighten the complexion.

Live a Healthy Life

Healthy lifestyle is imperative if you want to have radiant skin. Therefore, it’s essential that you avoid junk food, sweets, chocolate, and all the food that’s harmful for your body. One of the main causes of dull skin is precisely sugary food, so avoid it at all costs. Caffeine and alcohol will, in most cases, dehydrate the skin and leave it dull as well. Therefore, eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, and also food rich in omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, minerals and enzymes.

Additionally, exhaustion will eventually cause your skin to look older than it actually is. Wrinkles, dark circles and discoloration of the skin can actually be the side effects of sleep deprivation. Therefore, make sure you have at least eight hours of sleep a night, in order to maintain a healthy body and mind. Furthermore, lack of sleep causes weakness in the immune system, which further leads to illnesses, flu, and different infections. Therefore, stay healthy by sleeping regularly, eating healthy food and being active. Finally, physical activity will also help your skin stay radiant and flawless. Prevent the appearance of cellulite by working out regularly, having your training sessions at least three times a week.

      Most people don’t realize that sleep is as important as it is for healthy skin and for ourselves.

    I’ve read about that recently! On how lack of sleep weakens a person’s immune system. And the thing about the skin…you’llreally age fasterif you lack sleep.

      I learned that the hard way after my back surgery. I couldn’t sleep from the pain and I aged so much in regards to my skins appearance.

      I get sun poisoning if I get out in the sun so I’ve learned to apply tons of sunscreen and wear floppy hats. I’m sure that helps my skin as well. You’re very welcome.

    Hydration is so important especially since the sun can really keep our skin dry and sometimes, even damaged as well. I think it’s also good to schedule a facial!

      Great tips, I can tell a difference when I drink plenty of water and use moisturize daily.

    This reminds me to get a much needed facial. You’re right, moisturize. I’ll try to eat better.

      I need to work on eating better myself now that I have a little more time on my hands for meal planning.

    We use suncare/skincare products everyday, even if it isnt too sunny out or we are not planning a day outdoors. It is always good to be proactive when it comes to skincare and the damage that can be done due to UVs. We live in Florida so we see the effects of the sun all the time around here.

      I used to spend my summers in Florida as a child and I remember how hot and humid it was.

      I have to confess that mine has as well. I don’t remember a summer that was as hot as this one was.

    It’s always good to have a routine after you go swimming or even after you take a shower.

      You’re so right. I keep stressing this to my daughters and grand kids since they all have swimming pools. Chlorine is bad on the skin.
