Even though we are still in the dead of winter, now is the time to start working on your summer skin. If you have oily skin, even in the dry season, you can experience breakouts. Moisturizing with the wrong product can clog pores.
Most women want flawless skin year round, and moms-to-be who are experiencing hormonal fluctuations especially need to be mindful of the way the season, foods they eat, and other external and internal shifts can impact the way their skin looks.
If you recall the past, when you had a special occasion coming up like in high school when you wanted to look your best in your prom dress, for example, you drank more water, used anti-blemish creams and acne washes daily to make sure you looked your best. This was the case if you were around when two piece prom dresses were the rage.
Now that you’re older and have different stresses from work, children, pregnancy, you have to do the same and take advance precautions when prepping your skin for the Summer.
Make it a point to exfoliate your skin
Try to exfoliate your skin regularly. Rubs and masks are all the rage and so much so that even the Dollar Store sells popular facial wraps now.
When you exfoliate your skin, it also removes debris from your skin. When the dead skin gets removed from your skin, then the toners and moisturizes will become more effective for your skin.
Ideally, you should make it a point to exfoliate your skin every morning before applying the toner or SPF.
Apply intensive hydration masks
Skin hydration is also mandatory all year long. It will be a great idea to apply intensive face masks on your skin once or twice a week.
Also, you should always keep a revitalizing toner handy, and refresh your face time to time whether you are in a gym or at the office.
Apply Sunscreen even in Summer
The mistake most women do is that when they apply the sunscreen on their face even in winter and not apply it again. It is vital that you should apply the sunscreen after every two hours. Another confusion most women have is how much sunscreen show they apply on their face. Ideally, you should apply a teaspoon of sunscreen on your face.
