With so much to do outdoors here, Fountain of You, Melbourne, FL’s premier destination for anti-aging and aesthetic services offering Botox, fillers, laser hair removal, nutritional counseling and more. Now that so many of us are taking advantage of the beach season, we want to be sure that you are caring for your skin as well. Here are some tips to keep your skin radiant and healthy during the sweltering summer months.
The upswing in temps and increase in heat make for lots of sweat. The sweat combined with bacteria and skin oils can cause your pores to clog increasing the likelihood of breakouts. The American Academy of Dermatology suggests that you be sure to blot, not wipe, excess sweat. The rubbing can irritate already sensitive skin. Make sure you wash your face and body with non-comedogenic products as well. Summer is also a great time to schedule a medical facial from Fountain of You. We have a variety of options for you to choose from including the Express Facial, Anti-Aging Facial, or a “Just for Teens” option.
Believe it or not, dry skin can be a big problem in the summer in spite of the humid air outside. If you spend lots of time indoors under air conditioning, your skin could become dry and irritated. Those of you who enjoy lots of pool time can see the same results from the chlorine. To keep dry skin at bay, be sure to use sunscreen before heading out. When you are done with your dip in the pool, shower immediately to remove any chemicals and use a mild cleanser. It’s also important to moisturize even though the temps are high. Keep your skin hydrated and it will stay calm and collected for you in return.
Summer is peak season for sunburns so be sure to protect your skin each and every day by using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing. You will want to choose a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher and protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Use those sunglasses to protect your skin and try wearing a hat that provides protection as well. Protective clothing is a must when it comes to sun protection this summer. Stay safe out there. Help keep your skin safe now and in the future by being vigilant each and every day.
