Summer means short shorts, bathing suits, and fun in the sun. But with the warm weather comes the responsibility of giving our skin a little extra TLC. Here are some tips that will help keep your skin fresh and glowing during those hot and humid months.
Exfoliate your body. The key to having soft and glowing skin is to get rid of the dead skin cells. Find a sugar or salt scrub and apply it gently while in the shower in circular motions, starting from the shoulders on down.
Quick Tip: Don’t scrub too hard and only exfoliate twice a week.
Find a good razor and shaving cream. I have to admit that during the winter months I’m extremely lazy when it comes to shaving my legs. Now that winter is over, those lazy days are a thing of the past. Finding a good razor and shaving cream is the secret to smooth and silky legs.
Quick Tip: Make sure your shaving cream is hydrating to the skin and have lubricants that glide over the skin smoothly.
Don’t forget the sunscreen. Throw away last year’s sunscreen lotion and pick up a new one. Use one ounce of sunscreen to cover your body and reapply approx. every 2 hours.
Quick Tip: We all know to sunbathe is a big no no. For a bronzed glow opt for a faux tan with a self tanning lotion.
Hydrate your skin. Find a summer scented lotion that is light and absorbs quickly. Apply your lotion right after you get out the shower to help seal in the moisture into your skin.
Quick tip: Don’t forget to moisturize your lips. Use a lip balm to keep your lips soft and moisturized.
