Summer will be here before we know it and everyone will be showing a lot more skin. When you go grocery shopping and start seeing sunscreen and tanning creams more prominently displayed, then you know it’s time to start thinking about pampering and protecting your skin to get ready for the summer months.
Some skin solutions take longer than others to produce results, so if you want your skin looking its best on the first day of summer, now is the time to start.
Slough Off Winter Skin With a Facial
Start summer with a fresh complexion by getting a facial. Our trained estheticians can create a custom facial that addresses your exact skin needs. Our esthetician will take your skin type and quality into consideration to determine which solution will provide the best results. Your esthetician will also consider how the weather and environment are affecting your skin.
Facials can be used to treat fine lines, discoloration and acne among other things. Because facials are gentle on the skin, you’ll get the most benefit from having a series of facials performed over an extended period. Plus, a day getting pampered at Precision Wellness will help combat stress hormones that can cause acne flare-ups.
Switch Up Your Moisturizer
During the winter when the air is dry most people need a heavier moisturizer to keep skin hydrated. However, the summertime brings higher humidity levels that can make skin oilier. That’s why it’s important to switch up your moisturizer as summer rolls around.
Set the heavy creams aside, and opt for a lighter formula. Gel moisturizers are a good option if you have normal skin. If your skin tends to get oily try an oil-free mattifying moisturizer. The most important factor to look for is a lightweight formula that will absorb into the skin. Bonus points if it also contains broad spectrum UV protection.
When the summer heats up, we sweat to help regulate the temperature inside our body. Sweating depletes your body of moisture, which needs to be replaced. If you’re not properly hydrated, one of the first places it will start to show is your skin.
Staying hydrated seems like a simple task, but the majority of adults don’t drink the recommended daily amount of water. Make sure you drink at least eight cups of water a day (more if you’re active or out in hot weather for a prolonged period). If you plan to exercise it’s best to drink water before, during and after the workout to avoid dehydration. One of the best ways to increase fluid intake throughout the day is to get a water bottle. Keep the water bottle with you as a reminder to drink up.
Follow these tips to get started on improving your skin and by the time summer rolls around you’ll be ready to show more skin without any reservations.
