Beat the Heat by Avoiding These Summer Skincare Mistakes

Beat the Heat by Avoiding These Summer Skincare Mistakes

This coming summer is looking to be a hot one, which means many of us will likely head to the beach to cool off. If you’re not careful, however, you could get more than just sand, sea, and sun.
Protect your skin against the sweltering heat this summer by being prepared and informed. Start by getting to know and avoiding these all too common summer skincare mistakes.
Neglecting Proper Sunscreen Use
Sunscreen should be an important part of your summer skincare routine, but many of us do away with it for various reasons. For some, it’s expensive, it doesn’t feel good on the skin, or it’s not practical if you’re not planning to stay under the sun for a long time.
First off, not all sunscreen lotions are expensive. These may be a bit pricier compared to ordinary lotions, but the purchase is worth it. Many sunscreens on the market are also formulated for quick skin absorption, which does away with the sticky residual feeling. Dermplus sunscreens, for example, provide excellent skin protection from the sun, features a quick absorb formula, and comes in different variants and sizes depending on your need and skin type.
One important thing many people don’t know is that you can get sunburn even when indoors. UV light can penetrate through glass windows, which means even if you are at home or in the office and you happen to be next to a window, you still are exposed.
Make it a habit to use Dermplus to all exposed areas of the body every day, especially this summer.
Ignoring Dead Skin Cells
The sun and sand may feel good on your feet, but these can damage the skin. Be sure to exfoliate your skin before hitting the beach. Removing the dead skin cells allow for the growth of new, healthy cells, which makes the skin smoother and feeling softer.
Exfoliation also allows the sunblock and other skincare products to be more effective, as it can go deeper into the skin.
Relying on Clothes Alone for Sun Protection
Our summer outfits are often light, airy, and colorful. This, however, could mean your skin (even the non-exposed parts) does not get enough protection.
The sando, the sun dress, or that light summery polo shirt provide very little protection against the sun. For this, it’s best to sunscreen it up all over, and maybe even getting clothes with built-in sun protection.
Getting Dehydrated
Dehydration not only causes headaches and extreme thirst, it also causes the skin to dry out.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or non-sugary, non-caffeinated beverages. This balances the body and skin’s moisture levels.
Ignoring that Sunburn
If you really can’t stay away from the heat and the sun for a long time, be sure to soothe the skin as soon as possible.
The Dermplus Aftersun Hydrating Body Gel is very effective in soothing the skin, reducing inflammation and redness, and preventing peeling. The sooner you deal with the sun damage on the skin, the better.
Make this summer fun and safe not just for the family or the barkada, but for your skin as well.
