In the summer, skin care becomes more vital due to all the damage sun can cause. If you neglect your skin, it could become dry, itchy, patchy, and you could even get a heat rash. Here are some tips and routines you can apply to your everyday life to reduce any chance of this.

One of the most important things about keeping your skin in good condition, is keeping your skin hydrated. The most common skin condition in the summer is a heat rash, because being exposed to extreme amounts of heat will clog your pores, creating a pimple-looking rash. To avoid this, take measures to make sure your skin is not overheating. This could include splashing cold water on your face every couple minutes, or putting a cold rag on your face when you start to feel hot.

Another thing you want to avoid is being sunburnt. This can cause premature wrinkles, or even skin cancer. Obviously, sun screen helps with this, but there are other unconventional ways as well. If you are planning on wearing makeup in the sun, try opting for one with sunscreen in it. A cheap drugstore option would be the L’Oreal Infallible Foundation. If you do plan on using sunscreen, remember to always reapply after sweating or swimming, and do not forget to protect your lips too.
