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.

Nivea Sun Daily Face Fluid Collagen Protect SPF30+

Summer is one of my favorite seasons and since last month was my b day month , I had a lot of chances to enjoy the beaches and pools. I’m so excited coz it’s been a while since the last time I had a beach trip or even a pool party with friends because I have lots of works. And today that I have more free time I thought it’s the perfect time to go to beach trips and just enjoy life.

So everything were all set, bags were packed swimsuit’s check, makeup check, foods and so on… To my excitement,did you know that of all the essential things that I need to bring, I forgot to bring a sunblock :/ Yes spell stu**d ha-ha but it didn’t stop me from swimming and be friends with Mr. Sun. So skin was exposed to the sun and then eventually it burns, irritated and turned red -> hello sunburn 🙁 (hard-headed I know but forgive me it’s my b day month err i know it’s still not a good excuse.

The next day, my skin started to peel and got itchy. I was still OK coz it’s my arms and back was peeling but not until the third day, my forehead started to peel too. I was so worried coz it’s only a week before my birthday oh no! This couldn’t be happening, so I dropped by Watson and looked for a great after-swim treatment. Tried a gel with Aloe but no fast result. Then I saw this product from my favorite brand NIVEA so I tried it and I did not regret it.

Note: Read until the last part 🙂

I should have took a photo of my forehead when it was peeling as well as the before and after look but I didn’t know it’ll give fast and amazing results!
After applying Nivea daily face fluid immediate sun protection and waited just for ONE DAY voila! There’s no peeling anymore and my skin is oh so smooth and fair. I can’t believe it! It’s a miracle!

I am so happy with the results and I am so in love with this product! Nivea never fails me that’s why I love love their product. Two thumbs up!!!

 Alldolled-up tip:
– Apply cold compresses to your skin to soothe the burn.
– Refrigerate your chosen cream that has Aloe or Menthol ingredient prior to applying. It’ll feel even better on your sunburned skin.
– Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration
– Stay out of the sun! If no choice, wear the right clothes (hat, UV blocking sunglasses and the like)
– Use sunscreen that have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.
