Summer time is the perfect chance to be outdoors. The weather looks great and you don’t want to be stuck inside the house doing nothing. The children might also be on a school break and you want to maximize the chance to enjoy summer adventure with them. While it’s importance that you focus on the details of your trip, you must also pay attention to skincare. The temperature could skyrocket during the summer and you want to stay protected. Here are some tips to consider.
Always cleanse your face
Make sure you clean your face regularly. When you’re outside, your skin is exposed to pollutants. You don’t want dust and dirt to stick to your skin and cause blemishes. Regular cleansing is necessary to wipe the dirt out and stay blemish-free.
You might not think it’s too hot and the weather is tolerable. The truth is it could be too hot and you will get sunburn. It’s best if you use sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Choose the right SPF and avoid products with tons of chemicals. Again, it doesn’t matter if you’re heading to the beach or just driving around. Being outdoors will expose you to the heat and you must be protected.
You have to keep your skin hydrated or you might experience breakouts. Even on the plane on your way to the destination, your skin could experience breakouts. The humidity on the plane is 20% lower than usual. If you fail to moisturize, expect skin problems upon landing.
Stick to your routine
Just because you’re outside doesn’t mean you will alter your skincare routine. Make sure you stick to what you always do. You want to have smooth and glowing skin, regardless of your location. You can buy smaller containers to transfer your skincare products if you don’t want to bring several bottles during the trip.
Don’t try anything new
You might think summer is the best time to try a new skincare product. It’s a big no. The weather isn’t necessarily favorable for your skin. You don’t want to experiment and regret the results.
Don’t hesitate to see your skin doctor
Before going on a trip, you can schedule a visit to your skin doctor. You might ask for suggestions on how to protect your skin from the sun. If you’re starting to experience breakouts days before the trip, you must solve it. You don’t want to look terrible on your selfies because of the skin problems.
Go easy on the makeup
Try a more natural look for the summer. Let go of the heavy makeup. Besides, you will always be sweaty when outdoors. Imagine feeling that way with a full makeup on. Your makeup can also damage your skin and it worsens during the summer.
Enjoy the break and always keep your skin protected. Stay away from the sun and wear appropriate clothing. There’s nothing wrong in being outdoors at this time of the year, but you should prioritize good skincare tips.
