Summer is here and knowing how to care for our skin is very important. Heat causes pores to soften, so the dirt and sweat get inside the pores easily. Dirt and makeup that clog up pores can cause skin problems, breakouts, pimples, acne and aged skin.
To take proper care of your skin you need to know your skin type and take care of it daily.
Cleanse your face once a day, preferably at night before you go to bed, with a good cleanser. Try not to use regular soap to clean your face because soap might cause your skin to dry and flake. Use lukewarm water to wash away the dirt and makeup.
Exfoliate once a week to remove all the dead skin cells that are building up. Dead skin cells might cause the pores to clog which lead to the appearance of pimples and blemishes.
Moisturize the skin no matter what type of skin you have, except for acne-prone skin that needs special treatment. Use products that are especially designed for your skin type. When your skin feels tight that means it lacks moisture. Moisturizing daily can help the skin maintain it’s elasticity and healthy look.
Sunscreen is a must in your summer skin care routine. You can use face creams which have UV protection factor. Sun can cause premature aging even if it’s cloudy outside. The sun’s UV rays penetrate the clouds so you need to be protected. UV rays can cause sunburns, age spots and can trigger skin cancer so don’t leave without having sunscreen on.
