Start Your Summer Off Right This Memorial Day With These Skincare Tips

It's widely considered the un-official start to Summer and it is just around the corner.  Memorial Day Weekend is when it's officially not weird to wear flip flops all day long and you can wear your wide brimmed straw hat and look stylish.  The weekend kicks off the Summer season and what better way to celebrate then to make sure your skincare routine is ready.  If you take action now and get into a good routine for the summer you will have glowing and youthful looking skin all summer long.

While your skincare routine may already be set since you've been following good habits throughout the Spring, there are some additional steps you may want to take this weekend to have your skin be fully prepped for the start of the Summer.  If you pay close attention to the steps you need to take you will not have to worry about having your skin get damaged or looking parched while enjoying the benefits of being outside during the Summer months.

The first and most important thing you can do this weekend and all summer long is to make sure you are using good sun protection.  You can do this in a number of different ways.  If you are choosing to protect your skin using clothing you will need to make sure all areas of your skin are covered.  You should wear long-sleeve shirts, long pants and a hat to protect your face as well.  These articles of clothing will go a long way to keeping your skin glowing and protected from over exposure to the sun.  The one challenge with this is that you may get hot and if you reduce the amount of coverings you're wearing you could be susceptible to skin damage from the sun.

If you don't want to cover your skin up this Summer, of course the next best thing you can do is to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher.  Even on cloudy days you will want to make sure you are applying sunscreen to keep your skin protected from the sun.  Also a general rule of thumb is that you will need to reapply sunscreen every two hours while you are out in the sun.  You may need to reapply more often when you are sweating or swimming so your skin stays protected even during those activities.

Another key component to keeping your sun healthy and glowing throughout the Summer is hydration.  It is critical that, to combat the Summer heat from zapping the moisture from your skin, you apply a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated while you're enjoying the Summer weather.  You will also want to make sure you are continually drinking plenty of water throughout the day as an additional protection from your skin becoming dehydrated.  

Finally, having your skin exposed to the sun regularly, especially mid-day Summer sun can leave it looking drab and dull.  It is for this reason that you should start your Summer off with our #1 best selling exfoliant InstantPeel so you can clear away all of the dead skin cells and reveal a layer of healthy, youthful looking skin.  This gentle treatment is good to be done once a week throughout the summer and is a perfect way to keep your skin looking healthy all season long.  

As we approach Memorial Day Weekend and you prepare for your best summer ever, it is a good idea to make sure your skin is ready by taking a few steps in the direction of keeping your skin protected, moisturized and refreshed.  When you do this you will spend your Summer enjoying the weather and not being afraid of the heat and the damage it could do to your skin.
