In summer, as never before, our skin needs special attention and worthy care. The heat outside the window, intense ultraviolet radiation, the impact of salt water or pressure and temperature drops high in the mountains (holidays after all) - all this is not good for her. Weathered and flaky skin, burns, allergic reactions, pigment spots - this is a far from a complete list of problems that can be faced at the end of the summer season, if you neglect the advice on skin care in the summer.
These tips are really simple:
Before the fall, forget about microdermabrasion, peeling and bleaching. Procedures associated with invasion of the skin in the summer do not only not recommended, but also unsafe: you risk getting a deep sunburn.
Surface peelings are better to hold after returning from vacation. After even light peelings in the summer, you should not sunbathe for at least three weeks after the end of the last procedure. It is always necessary to apply a sunscreen with a high protection factor on your face every day.
Take care of the permanent moistening of the skin. After cleansing and toning the skin, apply light moisturizing creams and ointments that quickly saturate the skin. Overdrying oily skin in the sun can lead to decompensation: the skin will become even greasy.
Thermal water for moistening the face skin in the summer is recommended to be used constantly.
Accustom yourself daily to drink 8 glasses of mineral water without gas. It will provide both moisturizing the skin "from within", and a set of trace elements, necessary for the body to maintain it in a perfect condition.
In the morning, drink herbal tea. Herbal teas have a beneficial effect on metabolism, thus improving the appearance of the skin. However, it should be remembered that the effect from them, as well as from any method of phytotherapy, does not come immediately and only with regular application. If you do not like herbal teas or suffer from allergies, try in the morning on an empty stomach to just drink warm water with honey (1 teaspoon honey for a glass of warm water) - honey also improves skin condition. If, of course, you do not have allergies and honey ...
Include in the diet foods rich in vitamins A, C and E. These vitamins are natural antioxidants that provide youthful skin. Therefore, regularly eat olive and sunflower oil, eggs, blueberries, carrots, olives, almonds, cabbage, black currant, any green vegetables.
Give up smoking! It is proved that smoking promotes accelerated aging of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles.
Give up drinking alcohol! Or use it no more than 3 times a week! Plentiful libations adversely affect the skin condition by drying it.
In the summer, do not take hot baths. Again, with one goal - do not overdry the skin. Especially pay attention to the fact that the means for taking baths or shower gels have a neutral PH.
