The warmer it gets, the easier it is for your skin to develop acne or other impurities. The secreted oil remains on the skin's surface, leading to stickiness, grease and clogged pores. This can cause acne. Below you will find 5 tips to protect your skin during hot summer days.
- Don't go outside without SPF
SPF not only protects you against harmful UV radiation on a summer day, but it also protects you against air pollution. UV radiation is 80% responsible for skin aging. Studies show that people who use sunscreen every day show 24% less wrinkles or skin aging than people who don't.
- Drink plenty of water
This not only applies during summer, but it is extra important to stay hydrated when it's warm outside. Your body needs moisture to dispose of the waste products. Humans consist of 70% moisture. It is therefore important to keep your body hydrated. By drinking enough water you flush the toxins from your body. This is extra beneficial for people with acne.
- Cleanse your skin after a hot day
After a long day in the sun, your skin needs proper care in the evening. Throughout the day, your pores are getting clogged with dirt, impurities and sweat. By using a good cleansing gel, you will clean your skin well after such a hot day and this will ensure that you get less pimples and impurities. For example, the Clay And Glow cleansing gel is a great option!
4. Take a cold shower
After a summer day it is the best feeling to take a cold shower. Not only is it cooling, but it also has a positive effect on your pores. It causes your pores to shrink.
After a day in the summer heat, nothing is better than a cold shower. The cool water is not only beneficial when you are sun burned, but also has a positive effect on your pores and skin (without robbing it of its natural fats).
5. Treat your skin once or twice a week with a wonderful scrub
Many people do not like to exfoliate in the summer because they are afraid that their tan will go away. Nothing could be further from the truth. By exfoliating the day before you go into the sun, the tan will go deeper into the skin. It is best to use a mild scrub so that you do not damage your skin. Our Clay And Glow facial scrub is perfect for preparing your skin for a summer day.
