It's time to strip away those winter blues—summer is approaching quickly! And what better way to show off that new sundress or pair of board shorts than to get your skin back to its healthy post-winter glow? It's the perfect accessory! But, sometimes that may be easier said than done. To make it easier for you, and to help you get ready for a beautiful, rejuvenated look, we've compiled a list of some of the best tips (for men and women) to prep your skin for the summer sunshine!
Regular exfoliation is not only part of a healthy skin routine, but one of the best ways to reveal your skin's natural glow. To exfoliate properly, you can use tools like:
- Microdermabrasion kits
The idea is to get rid of the outermost layer of skin cells that are ready to naturally slough off, revealing younger and more radiant layers of skin underneath. This doesn't take a lot of work, so be sure to be gentle on your skin.
Keeping your skin properly moisturized is the next step after exfoliation. With newer layers exposed to the elements, you want to keep them moisturized and protected. By using creams or lotions, you can do just that all while keeping a radiant glow! Be sure to check with our staff to ensure that you're using the right products for your skin type.
After exfoliating and moisturizing, you may find that you still have those pesky cellulite marks that just never seem to go away. Other than diet and exercise, there are some tricks you can do and products you can use to reduce the appearance of cellulite on a short-term basis including the following:
- Use products that contain caffeine and theophylline
- Massage affected areas
- Apply a fake tan
Fight UV Rays
We can't say this enough...sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! Nothing works better than protection. Using a sunscreen with an SPF that corresponds to the fairness of your skin is key. As a general rule of thumb, you should always use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher and apply plenty 15 to 20 minutes before you head out the door.
Fun tip: you can also fight UV rays from the inside out! By eating cooked tomatoes every day, your body gets a healthy dose of lycopene, which is an antioxidant that helps fight the effects of UV rays. However, never consider this a substitute for sunscreen.
