Summer Skin Care

Do's and Dont's in Summer


Don’t take too many showers. It’s summertime and you’re working up a sweat, but taking multiple showers throughout the day can wreak havoc with your skin: Though you might think it’s hydrating, topically, water can have a drying effect on your epidermis.


Do drink plenty of water. While topically water can hinder your skin, drinking 64 ounces of water daily is essential for a healthy complexion because it flushes out toxins and keeps your insides running efficiently. Whether you drink bottled, filtered, or tap water doesn’t matter getting your eight glasses in matters most. Remember that fruits and veggies are also good sources of H20.


Don’t drink too much coffee. While a cup a day minus whipped cream, sugar substitutes, etc.—may be beneficial, too much Starbucks can be dehydrating.


Do moisturize regularly. It would be even better if you substituted your lotion with sunscreen, that way you can protect your skin from harmful UV rays and keep your skin moisturized at the same time.
