Many favorite summertime hobbies such as swimming, tanning and traveling can leave skin damaged and dehydrated. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps that you can take to protect your skin from summer-related dehydration.
Add Vitamins: Find a serum or cream that contains a good balance of vitamins and moisturizers. The Vitamin C and E Serum from Timeless Skin Care is a great example. While Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, Vitamin E promotes skin’s natural oil production and keeps your skin moisturized.
Don’t Forget Your Eyes: The skin under your eyes is the most delicate and should be treated with special care. This fragile skin is prone to wrinkles and other problems. To protect your eyes from dehydration, make sure that your skin care cream is also formulated for the skin around your eyes. Another alternative is finding a cream for under-eye use only and using that in conjunction with your regular skin cream or serum.
Hyaluronic Acid: This wonderful compound is naturally found in the human body and can hold up to one thousand times its weight in water. Some places, like Timeless Skin Care, sell hyaluronic acid without additives.
Argan Oil: Derived from the Moroccan Argan Tree, Argan oil is great for skin, hair and nails. Argan Oil can be used to hydrate and moisturize all types of skin- from the rough palms to the tender skin on your lips- and has a relaxing, pleasant scent.
Drink Water: Being properly hydrated is extremely important for your skin’s health. You skin cannot absorb water from external sources and instead relies on the water that you drink during the day. Some common drinks, including coffee, will actually increase dehydration, so make sure that you are getting the right fluids.
With these few simple steps, you can keep the summer heat from drying out your skin while still enjoying your favorite outdoor activities.
