Top Skin Tips To Keep You Glowing All Summer
Protect your skin. Everyone knows that sunscreen application is important to protect against UVA/UVB rays, but did you know that antioxidants and anti-inflammatories are just as important? Antioxidants can help protect against damaging free radicals responsible for visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and uneven texture. We recommend vitamin C and pomegranate extract for added antioxidant protection. Also, anti-inflammatories help neutralize redness and prevent inflammatory cell damage. Try arnica, zinc and aloe vera.
Prevent breakouts. During the hot, humid summer months you tend to have more breakouts because of increased oil production in skin. To alleviate some peripheral breakouts, we recommend using a cleanser with a high amount of salicylic acid.
Eat right. Food fuels your body and mind and eating the right foods can strengthen your skin’s ability to protect itself against environmental damage. Select water-rich raw fruits and vegetables such as goji berries, tomatoes, watermelon, broccoli, cabbage, mangoes, strawberries and green tea.
