6 Tips For Beautiful Summer
While there are benefits to soaking up the sun’s rays (We LOVE Vitamin D!), it is more important than ever to take proper care to protect your skin from the potentially harmful effects of the sun.
Here are 6 important ways to care for your skin before, during and after fun in the sun!
All Over Protection
Before spending time outdoors, apply sunscreen with full-spectrum UVA and UVB Protection. Facial skin is particularly sensitive so take advantage of facial moisturizers or foundations with SPF that can give you an added layer of protection.
Don’t Forget the Lips
The sun’s rays can be especially drying to the tissues of your lips. Make sure to apply a lip balm with SPF to protect lips from drying, peeling and cracking. Preventative care is important! Planning effectively can help keep you from having to treat an uncomfortable or painful burn, or rough, chapped lips.
There are so many benefits to drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Being well hydrated helps curb cravings, fight infections, flush toxins from the body and support healthy skin. Skin contains water, and when it is dehydrated the skin is more susceptible to appearing dry and wrinkled. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty – by then you’re already on your way to dehydration. Instead, make drinking water part of your outdoor summer routine!
Even with all of our best intentions, sometimes sunburns happen. Apply Aloe Vera to the skin to sooth, cool and rehydrate red and irritated skin. Keeping the skin moisturized can help burns heal faster and delay or prevent painful peeling. Tip: keep your Aloe Vera in the fridge for a cool sensation to instantly take the sting out of burns!AloeByNature
After spending time in the sun, skin can be oily and dirty. As soon as you get home, cleanse your face thoroughly to clear pores and minimize the possibility of breakouts before applying a light moisturizer. To keep your summer glow going strong, moisturizing is key! Dry skin can peel or shed faster and appear dull vs. well-hydrated skin that has a natural, healthy tone. I recommend the Sonya Skin Care Range by Forever Living.
Uneven skin tone can happen after pregnancy, time in the sun or as we age. Thankfully, these spots don’t need to be permanent! Apply a spot-evening formula to brighten the complexion and improve the appearance of dark spots. Regular exfoliation can also help to keep your skin tone bright and even.

Following these simple steps can help keep your skin beautiful all year long!
Did you know?
SPF (which stands for Sun Protection Factor) indicates how much longer you can stay in the sun without protection. For example, SPF 30 allows you to stay in the sun 30 times longer without burning than you could without sun protection! Still, make sure to reapply sunscreen often.
