Cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and protecting are golden rules that become even more important in summer. How to properly perform these stages of skin care?

In the summer we especially want our skin to look flawless and healthy, but paradoxically, it is at this time exposed to most harmful factors. The most dangerous is of course UV radiation, which can lead to sunburn, and then peeling of the epidermis. In addition, the condition of our skin in the summer is also affected by high temperatures, dry air, wind and salt water. When you have a lot going on in your schedule on sunny days and your skin is far from perfect, you need to know a few simple golden rules and discover how best to take care of it so that it looks good all the time.

1. Safety is key: protection

While many of us crave a tan during the summer months, sunlight can be very damaging. Unfortunately, it is responsible for up to 80% of changes associated with skin aging and cancerous processes. The best solution is to completely give up sunbathing on your face during the vacations. On hot days you must remember to use sunscreen on the whole body. Sunburns are very painful and lead to skin peeling, which does not look aesthetic. We can get a beautiful tan by using creams and tanning gradually. We should never forget to protect ourselves from the harmful rays of the sun.

2. Deep cleansing

In summer, when the skin sweats more, comes into contact with thick protective creams, dust, sand and makeup, it needs a really good cleansing. Daily facial care should start with cleansing and end with it. Regular skin makeup removal will not only allow us to get rid of all impurities from the surface of the face, which pave the way for the active ingredients of skin care creams, but also contribute to maintaining a young, radiant and healthy look for longer

3. Moisturizing

During the summer, facial skin is primarily exposed to the sun, which contributes to the formation of wrinkles and dries out our complexion. The key to glowing skin is proper hydration, so it is worth equipping yourself with the right moisturizing creams in the summer. Reach for proven cosmetics, based on substances that retain water in the epidermis, such as hyaluronic acid, elastin, collagen, squalane, phospholipids

4. Exfoliation

Proper exfoliation is one of the most important procedures that you can and should perform regularly at home. Remember that even the best serum or cream will not do its job if the skin is blocked by dead cells. In this case, a body and face scrub will work best to eliminate dry skin. Don’t forget that scrubbing is taxing on the skin and should not be done more than 2-3 times a week
