Don’t sweat the small stuff this summer — just sweat. These 3 skincare tips will make sure that you’re good to go for any summer activity!
No matter how you like to spend your summers — cooling down at the beach, trekking a mountain, biking through trails, or spending hours on a golf course — summer is that time of the year that everyone looks forward to.
And while time in the sun is definitely one of the best ways to make the most out of the summer months, it’s important to remember that the dry season can have an undeniable effect on our bodies.
The intensified heat dehydrates our skin and sweat and pollution can clog our pores. But luckily for us, there are products that we can use to combat these stressors so that we can spend our time in the sun without needing to worry about how the weather might be affecting our skin.
Here are three main skincare tips that you need to add to your routine so that this summer, all you’ll have to worry about is your golf swing form or the next uphill climb on your bike ride.
1. Gently cleanse your skin
The first step in any skincare routine is to remove all the dirt that accumulates on your skin, especially when you work out under the sun.
Because your skin already faces stress from the intense heat, a gentle cleanser is perfect for eliminating dirt and grime to keep your skin feeling fresh. Y.O.U Beauty recently launched its Amino LowpH Mousse Cleanser, formulated with 28% Amino Acid Complex, 5x Ceramides, and Korean Centella Asiatica for a gentle cleanse and fresher skin.
Every pump gives you an extra soothing effect that will not only rid your skin of toxins, but will also leave you feeling refreshed!
2. Hydrate your skin
As you already know by now, sun exposure depletes the hydration in your skin and can damage your skin barrier, and these effects amplify in the summer. Because of this, hydration is another step you cannot neglect in your skincare routine.
Applying moisturizer twice a day is highly recommended to lock in your skin moisture and repair your skin barrier, and Y.O.U Beauty’s Radiance Up! Deep Moisturizing Cream is a great option for the summer!
Using a gel-like moisturizing cream that both strengthens your skin barrier and boosts skin radiance, this moisturizer will help you maintain the post-workout glow you worked hard to achieve.
3. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
One of the best skincare tips to remember this summer: Sunscreen is your best friend.
Wearing sunscreen formulated with SPF 30 or above and reapplying at least every two hours will keep your skin protected this summer.
For this summer, Y.O.U Beauty recently launched its newest addition to the growing skin care product category: Sunbrella Intensive Care Aqua Sunscreen. This is a gentle SPF 50+ PA++++ sunscreen that provides 8X all-around protection against UVA, UVB, blue light, and IRA. It contains skin-caring SymWhite 377, Ectoin, Moringa Seed Extract, and Ceramide for skin barrier support and extra nourishment.
While summer is a time you want to enjoy, especially before the rainy months come in, we need to remember that sun exposure can cause skin damage. But, the good news is we can still enjoy all our summer activities by simply being as consistent as we are with our physical fitness with our skincare routine to restore our skin’s natural balance!
To make sure your skin maintains its healthy glow, Y.O.U Beauty is here to help you stay protected while having fun under the sun.
