Be Skin Savvy #18 – “In the Summertime” A song by Mungo Jerry from 1970. Toby and I heard it regularly as we drove around west Wales recently. The summertime, when we look forward to long days and the warmth of those UV rays shining down on our skin, giving us a wonderful glow. But how do we look after our skin in the summer, making sure we minimize damage keep it healthy and still get a glow? First, don’t forget to exfoliate, 2-3 times a week but stay away from AHA’s in the… summer, a gentle granular exfoliater will slough off dead skin cells and allow hydrating products loaded with hyaluronic acid to dive deeper into the skin. Hydrating from the inside out is equally as important, so load up on H2O and fresh summer fruits. Apply a serum with Vit C morning and evening. This powerful antioxident will help protect from free radical damage under your sunscreen during the day, and repair the skin at night under your moisturizer. And finally dont skimp on the SPF, there are so many are the market designed for every skintype, I definately have my favorites, do not rely on make-up with SPF or moisturizer with SPF to do the job! You need SPF on the skin…….Now go and get your summer on and enjoy!
