Many people have skin issues every time summer rolls around. Increased humidity, heat and sweat can spell disaster for your complexion. Fortunately, you have more control over the health of your summertime skin than you may realize. Here are five easy ways to improve the way your skin looks and feels this summer.

  1. Hydrate

Adequate hydration is just as important for your skin as it is for the rest of your body. Since your skin loses so much moisture through sweat during the summer, it’s especially important to drink a lot of water when you’re out in the heat. If you’re urinating less than six to eight times a day, it’s time to increase your water intake. As you do, you’ll notice an improvement in your complexion. Newport Medical and Wellness Center is home to Boost Hydration which offers hydration to help your body get the moisture it needs quickly and effectively.

  1. Exfoliate Regularly

Regular exfoliation is one of the best tools you can use to improve the appearance of your skin. Exfoliating removes excess oil and dead skin cells that can clog your pores and lead to redness and irritation. For best results, exfoliate your skin at least once per week. You may be able to exfoliate as often as three times per week, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. Always pay attention to how your skin feels after exfoliating. If it starts to look or feel damaged or irritated, exfoliate less frequently.

  1. Don’t Skip the Moisturizer

In the summer, most peoples’ skin gets shinier and oilier. To combat this, some people stop using moisturizing products. Unfortunately, this is a mistake that could lead to even oilier and more blemish-prone skin.

If you’re wondering how applying less moisturizer can make your skin oilier, you need to understand that your body is very smart. If you deprive it of moisturizing products, it will think it needs to increase its own production of oil. As a result, your skin will ramp up its oil production and leave you with a face that’s even shinier than before.

To keep this from happening, resist the urge to skip moisturizer. You may want to switch to a very light-weight moisturizer in the summer, though, so your skin doesn’t feel weighed down.

  1. Wear Sunscreen

A sunburn is much more than an inconvenience. It’s visible skin damage that can increase your risk of skin cancer. In the summertime, it’s very important to wear sunscreen each time you spend time outdoors. Keep in mind that if you’re getting in the water frequently or sweating a lot, you’ll need to reapply sunscreen throughout the day to keep your skin safe and healthy. A good rule of thumb is to reapply your sunscreen every two hours for best results.

  1. Repair Sun Damage

With all the time people spend outdoors in the summer, some degree of skin damage is inevitable. Fortunately, there are things you can do to repair sun damage to your skin. In addition to applying anti-aging products to your skin, you can also use laser treatments to resurface and revitalize your skin after sun exposure.

Summer doesn’t have to wreak havoc on your skin. You can maintain a beautiful, flawless complexion throughout the hottest months by following these five helpful tips.
