Can you already feel the difference in the air? The water is warming up, the drinks are cooling down and the beach is practically begging to be enjoyed- this is it, friends, it’s summertime. But with the influx of enjoyable days spent in the sunshine and barely there clothes, it’s important to keep in mind that keeping your skin healthy and safe is a bigger priority than ever before. By following a few easy tips and making sure your skin is getting the best care possible, you’ll feel confident stepping into the sunshine this season.
With the increase in temperature, you’ll be sure to notice an increase in thirst as well. But did you know that by the time your body actually realizes it’s thirsty, doctors say you are technically already dehydrated? Put your brain in preventative overdrive and make a point to get ahead of your thirst.
Increasing your water intake can be difficult if you are someone who isn’t accustomed to drinking large amounts of H20. To get into the habit, try carrying around a water bottle at all times, starting and ending your day with a glass of water and even adding flavors such as lemon, lime or mint to help your normal water more enjoyable. At the end of the day, the goal is to drink eight 8-ounce glasses per day- and we promise that your body will thank you, from the inside out.

Slather It Up
While we certainly hope that everyone already has a skin care regiment that involves a daily moisturizer with SPF, we understand that for a lot of people sunscreen only comes out in the summertime. And while, that obviously needs to change- to protect your face, neck, arms and other visible body parts that are exposed year round- for now, we will emphasize the importance of truly embracing SPF in the summer.
Not only do you need to be wearing sunscreen, but the SPF number and quantity of it is equally important. Wearing sunscreen isn’t just about protecting your skin from a temporary burn, either; the truth is the sun can cause a lot of long-term damage, as well. From sun poisoning that leaves you sick and weak, to the possibilities of skin cancer, a simple way to avoid something so serious is to keep your sunscreen on hand. Use it all over and apply routinely to ensure soft, healthy and vibrant skin- now and for years to come.
With summer being the ideal time to let those legs out and bare it all in bikinis and short, summer dresses, you’ll want to make sure your skin is in perfect condition from head to toe. But did you know that part of keeping your skin glowing, is knowing when it needs to go? With treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and proper exfoliation, the dead skin cells on top are gently sloughed away to make room for the healthier skin waiting just below the surface. With the tired and dry cells gone, your fresh skin now looks brighter and smoother- and ready for summertime fun!
