There are several things you need to do to take care of your skin during this sunny season. Here are 5 tips to make it easier to help you make your skin a priority!
Treat your skin gently
Daily cleansing can take a toll on your skin. To keep it gentle, use warm water rather than hot, avoid strong soaps because these can strip oil from your skin, and lastly, after showering, gently pat your skin dry with a towel and not by rubbing it. Protecting skin from irritation and inflammation is key to maintaining healthy, youthful skin. Every inflammatory response damages skin at the cellular level and causes aging. From UV exposure, sun and wind burn, to topical sensitivities and acne, all reactions need gentle, calming care for healthier skin you’ll feel good about! View all sensitive skin products!
Eat a healthy diet
A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn’t clear, but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin.

Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and/ or other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin and a healthy state of mind, take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.
Protect yourself from the sun
One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems — as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. For the most complete sun protection, you should use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 25 that is able to filter out UVA and UVB rays, seek shade when the sun’s rays are the strongest, wear sunglasses that block UV rays and wear protective clothing that covers your skin.

Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. It also narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin, which decreases blood flow. This drains the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin. In addition, the facial expressions you make when smoking can contribute to wrinkles.
