Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time to get serious about maintaining your skin health. Fortunately, it’s not as complicated as you might think!
Here are a few of our favorite (even fun!) skin-saving tips:
Slather on the SPF
Sunscreen is always at the top of our list for the health and beauty of your skin! It’s the most important product you can use because it can prevent up to 90% of your skin’s aging.
Wearing sunscreen is the best way to prevent sun spots, spider veins, rosacea, redness, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, and all the other tell-tale signs of sun damage. An SPF of 30+ with both UVA and UVB protection is ideal. And remember to reapply every two hours, especially if you are swimming or sweating.
Bottom line: Wear sunscreen 365 days of the year, rain or shine.
Eat more watermelon
If you love watermelon, you’re going to be thrilled to hear that it’s bursting with lycopene. This natural pigment gives some fruit and vegetables their red color. It’s a natural antioxidant, protecting cells from damage and helping prevent UV-induced sunburn. But don’t forgo the sunscreen. You still need to lather up every two hours no matter how much watermelon you eat!
Drink to your health
Replenishing your body with fluids throughout the day is a must in the dog days of summer, when you can become easily dehydrated. Drinking water helps to detoxify your skin and can stave off many signs of aging. But if water bores you, try sprucing it up with green tea, a skin super food! Green tea is bursting with skin-protecting antioxidants that help to fight free-radical damage and preserve your skin.
