Since the temperature levels are rising, I know that you might feel tempted to cool yourself down by exposing your skin more to the elements.
This is a common mistake that many people make this particular season.
However, you must know that too much exposure to the sun has long-lasting negative effects.
This is why I want to give you some useful tips so that you can enjoy yourself while having a gorgeous healthy skin.
1. Sun lotion
I cannot stress the importance of it enough!
While the sun is healthy and the body assimilates vitamin D because of it, too much exposure (and during peak hours) can be extremely harmful.
Why is it dangerous?
- Cancerous effect on the skin;
- Premature aging;
- Sagging of the skin.
The basic rule that you should always follow is to use a sunscreen lotion with SPF 50 UV protection between 10 am-16 pm.
I know that sounds like a lot - but trust me, all dermathologists recommend you use AT LEAST SPF 50 when you go out in the sun.
Tip: If you have a sunburn, you can use Aloe Vera gel or soak in lukewarm water infused with chamomile tea.
2. Natural products for healthy skin
Because of its curative properties, it can smooth skin, prevent infection, kills fungus and harmful bacteria, moisturizes, and helps the skin heal faster.
You can apply it to clean skin, massage gently, and wash thoroughly after.
It has anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties.
It is also extremely efficient when it comes to sunburns because it not only soothes the skin but it also smooths the tissue.
You can apply it in your bathwater and soak in it for a few minutes.
3. Proper clothing and accessories
Sweating and tight clothes/ accessories cause friction that can lead to annoying acne and sometimes even sores.
Even synthetic clothes can cause the body to overheat, retain warmth, and prevent your body from breathing.
Try wearing loose and comfortable cotton clothing. Your skin will thank you in the long run.
4. Proper Nutrition
It goes without saying that your body reflects what you ingest. Therefore, being more conscious about what you eat is going to put you on the path of a wonderful skin.
